Bismillah Religious Emblem Workshop
Presents a Workshop for the Cub Scout Islamic Religious Emblem: The Bismillah Medal
What: The workshop will cover all activities prescribed by the National Islamic Committee on Scouting as requirement for the emblem, except for the regular attendance of the mosque and prayer service, which is the individual responsibility of the Scout’s family.
Participants will receive a certificate that states that the Scout has completed the requirements for the Bismillah Medal; they will NOT receive the medal at the workshop. It is the responsibility of the parents to submit the certificate with the required dollar amount to order the medal from the National Islamic Committee on Scouting. Detailed information is available on the Downloadable pamphlet available from http://www.muslimscouting.org/religious-emblems.
When: Saturday, December 19, 2015, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Where: Dar Alnoor Islamic Community Center, 5405 Hoadly Road, Manassas, VA 20122
Who: Any Bear, Webelos, or AOL Cub Scout who is a registered scout and practicing the Muslim faith. Cub Scouts can be from within or outside the NCAC.
Cost: The cost for the workshop is $7, payable online (http://namas.eventbrite.com) when you register for the workshop.
Why: Muslims start any task by saying “In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful.” Hence, as Cub Scouting is the beginning program of the BSA, when a boy learns something in this field, he should be awarded the “Bismillah Emblem” first. In earning this emblem, boys will learn all the basic facts they should know about Islam.
