ADULT PROGRAM A thorough study of the life of our beloved Prophet ﷺ:
A TALE OF TWO CITIES | The Years of the Beloved ﷺ
I | Prophesying the One He Fore-Gave

IV | Medina and the Luminous Grave
V | May Allah Bless and Sanctify His Slave
TRUE HEARTS (10-13) True Hearts is designed to serve the intellectual, spiritual, emotional, and social needs of our children at perhaps the most critical years of their development. True Hearts is focused on mentorship, heart-to-heart conversations, community-building games, lessons that awaken our youth’s love for God, public speaking and “teach-back” activities, and relationships between fellow youth that can last a lifetime. Our mentors will center the daily classes around the stories of twenty of our great Companions of the Prophet ﷺ.
YOUNG DREAMERS (4-9) Imām ʿAlī عليه السلام taught us to play with our children from ages 1-7, to teach them from 8-14 and then to befriend them ages 15 and beyond. Young Dreamers is designed to provide holistic enrichment for our youth that blends Imām ʿAlī’s instructions عليه السلام to play and educate. Our Young Dreamers will build their own town, including a mosque, café, game house, library, school, theatre, village store, and more. Throughout the week, our children will learn how to build their own businesses, manage their “gold coins,” and give in charity. For every coin donated, real money will be given to a charity of their choice. Our facilitators will center the program’s lessons around developing seven Prophetic characteristics: empathy, service, inner peace, courage, introspection, kindness, and generosity.
CHERISHED CHILDREN CARE (1-3) Lanturna’s Cherished Children Care is a special service that provides experienced childcare services to our precious young ones, whom the Prophet ﷺ once called “the flowers of heaven.” We believe that childcare should not be mere babysitting, but rather nurture the inner fiṭrah (nature) of our young ones. Activities will include, tarbiyyah (socialization) based lessons, crafts, anāshīd (poetic song), and story-telling.
