Vacation Islamic Camps by SIO Mumbai

As the summer vacations started unfolding across the nation, Students Islamic Organisation of India, Mumbai dedicated with a mission to serve the ummah ,specifically the youth of the nation, with its vibrant and ever enthusiastic team celebrated the VACATION ISLAMIC CAMP (VIC).

2 VIC's viz. Central Region and Western Region were taken at the sceneric beauty and cold climate of Mahableshwar on 24-27 April and 28-30 April respectively.

The current education system which makes students stressed and at the same time snatches away the moral and ethics of the younger generation has not much left to lament. And playing a blame game is also no solution. So we at SIO Mumbai came up with this platform, a launch pad for the students of the tenth and twelth who have given their board exams and have ample amount of time the urge of getting rid of their exam stress, for showing them the path to success. One that is worldly as well as for the hereafter.

Following a wholistic approach students are made to understand the basic tenets of Islam, through talk or videos or group discussions, then their are activities catering to personality development like public speeches and social work and also including educational excellence, followed by practical sessions on Namaz, and tilawat, apart from the various cultural programs like mono-acting and tarana sessions. Aap ki Adalat was also an important event of both the VIC's.

All this was accompanied by a sports and tour session which had on cards surprises like horse riding. Football, cricket, marathons, and various other similar activities.

After all even the Quran ask for the "Development of the body and soul". And that is what we have been striving to achieve.

Your Pearls of Wisdom

Success breeds success

There was a farmer who grew superior quality, award-winning corn in his farm. Each year, he entered his corn in the state fair where it won honors & prizes.

One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew his corn. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.

"How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with
yours each year?" The reporter asked. "Why brother"

'' The farmer replied, "Didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen grains from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field.

If my neighbors grow inferior, sub-standard & poor quality corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I have to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors to grow good corns."

The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbors' corn also improves. So it is in the other dimensions and areas of life!
Those who choose to be in harmony must help their neighbors and colleagues to be at peace.

Those who choose to live well must help others live well. The value of a life is measured by the lives it touches...

Success does not happen in isolation; it is most often a participatory and collective process. So share the good practices, ideas and new knowledge with your family, friends, team members and neighbors & all.
