IMAMIA YOUTH ORGANIZATION


AN INTRODUCTION:

 
 
Imamia Youth Organization is a unit of IMAMIA SOCIETY ( Regd.) which is a non-profit charity organization, registered under the Societies Registration Act 21, 2180 of India. It is committed to introducing the Islam of the Holy Quran and the Ahlul Bait (AS) to the masses and thus mould them into responsible persons who are imbued deeply with the Islamic spirit and are ready to serve humanity. IYO is led by a team of religious scholars, philanthropists and professionals, who are engaged in various religious, social, educational, and medical activities. Our primary goal is to invest in the future by developing our youth into admirable members of society.

OUR AIM

OUR PLAN

 

We have divided our plan into three phases:
Phase 1 - To introduce the real Islam and its teachings to the masses. To achieve this goal, we have written and translated various books, and prepared pamphlets, fliers, cassettes, board games and computer packages. Keeping in view the need of the youth of our region these things are presented mainly in Hindi and Urdu languages.
Phase 2 - To train and mould the masses and especially our youth in the Islamic pattern of life. For this we hold weekly classes, Ramazan-classes, special lectures, conferences, seminars and debates etc.
Phase 3 - To create and introduce a network of responsible Shia Muslims in every walk of life viz Administration, Medicine, Business, Finance, Law, Engineering, Religious Scholarship and Education etc.

ACHIEVEMENTS

 

Since its inception in 1991, the Organization, by the grace of Almighty, has been able to accomplish a number of tasks. These include the establishment of at least four permanent centres in three different cities of India (At two locations in Kanpur, and one each in Aligarh and Delhi) All these centres are extensively involved in imparting the teachings of Quran and Ahlul Bait (AS) and creating awareness among masses through a variety of programs and techniques.

 

1. IMAMIA STUDY CENTRES

 

Saturday and Sunday classes for young boys and girls to teach them Aqaed (Islamic Beliefs), Ahkam (Islamic code of practices), Akhlaq (Morals and Ethics)and Islamic History followed by the half yearly examination and prize distribution.
Daily evening classes for children and youth to teach Quran, Deeniyat and Urdu.
30-Day crash course of Deeniyat by a qualified Alim-e-Deen for youths during the holy month of Ramazan followed by test and prize distribution.
15-Day crash course to teach beginners the correct recitation of Quran.
Short-term courses on different subjects/topics like Tafseer-e-Quran and Islamic beliefs and practices.


2. TRAINING ( TARBIYATI) CAMPS


The Organization has arranged hundreds of training camps for youth so that they can practice Islamic way of living. Personality development, art of facing interviews, Tajheez-o-takfeen, art and crafts etc. are also taught here.


3. QUIZ, DEBATES, CONFERENCES AND SEMINARS


Imamia Youth Organization has a great history of organizing conferences and seminars on different burning topics in different cities of India. These programs are arranged for ladies and gents, and scholars and common people alike.
Debates on contemporary issues have always been a center of attraction for young boys and girls. This gives them a chance to present their views without any hesitation. All debates arranged by the Imamia Youth Organization were success.


4. CAREER GUIDANCE TO THE YOUTHS OF THE COMMUNITY


It is seen that a vast number of young Shias in India do not receive guidance to plan their future properly. They, usually, pursue their studies without any direction or goal. This leads to unemployment and frustration. To cope with this problem the Organization has prepared a comprehensive program through which a professionally sound information has been provided to the guidance seekers. Under this program various career guidance camps have been organized in different cities and towns of India like Lucknow, Kanpur, Allahabad, Faizabad, Jaunpur, Jogipura and Benaras. The response was overwhelming. The Organization has also designed a carefully planned application form for the information seekers who want to obtain career guidance on 1to 1 basis. Those who are interested in receiving such an application form may write to our Aligarh office.


5. EXHIBITIONS AND BOOK STALLS


It is a proven and tested fact that the impact of audio-video techniques like exhibitions, plays and skits etc is very high on human brain. To exploit this, theOrganization has arranged several exhibitions, plays, dramas, and skits to create awareness about Islamic beliefs, practices and morals amongst different sections of the society. Several posters, banners, articles, books, pamphlets, cassettes and CDs/DVDs have been prepared/displayed to achieve the goal. Though the Organization has plans to organize at least one program of this kind in every town of Uttar Pradesh till now it has already organized several in Kanpur, Aligarh, Jogipura, Delhi, Agra and Amroha.


6. WOMEN’S WING


The Organization observed that women of our community are victims of injustice and oppression. There is a lack of academic and religious awareness in them. Hence the Organization has taken this issue on top priority and started working for the welfare of this section of our community. The organization arranges weakly classes for women, distribute scholarships to female students, promotes hijab, make one to one counselling to solve their family problems etc


7. EDUCATIONAL TOUR

 

The Organization arranges educational tours as a part of training program.

8. ISLAMIC EDUCATION THROUGH GAMES

 
The Organization felt that markets are full of colourful and interesting educational and general games but our community has no solid plan in this direction. Hence it decided to produce such games. Two games are already in market and 7 are ready for printing. The Organization has planned to float at least 30 games in next 10 years. ( Insha Allah) 

 

9. ISLAMIC COLOR BOOKS, ILLUSTRATED STORY BOOKS, COMICS ETC.

 
The Organization felt that Islamic colour books, illustrated story books, comics etc are hardly available in Hindi and Urdu. Therefore it decided to publish such books. Some books are already been published and many others are ready for printing. The Organization has planned to publish at least 30 such books in next 10 years. ( Insha Allah)

 

10. PUBLICATIONS

 
The Organization felt that a remarkable work has been done by Iran to bring Islamic literature to common people. In spite of this a number of topics are required to be brought to the Indian youth in Hindi and Urdu. Hence the Organization published a number of books, booklets and pamphlets.

 

11. MEDICAL ASSISTANCE, FINANCIAL SUPPORT AND SCHOLARSHIPS TO THE ECONOMICALLY WEAKER SECTION.

 
The Organization observed that there is a large portion of our community which is below poverty line . It is hard for them to meet out expenses for their daily food, shelter, clothes, medicines and education. Hence the Organization tries it’s best to support them in all the possible ways.

 

MEMBERSHIP

 

Our criterion for inclusion of new members is slightly different from other organizations. We believe that every member of our Organization represents it in one way or another, therefore he/she should be well aware of essential Islamic beliefs and his/her religious duty in day to day affairs of his/her life.
To achieve this goal we ask all aspirants to study certain Islamic literature and imbibe it. We expect him/her to translate the teachings contained in the literature into his/her actions before allowing him to become a permanent member of the Organization. Apart from this a nominal yearly fees is also charged from such person.
Those interested in joining us may obtain the application form and details about the Islamic literature from one of our office located in Aligarh or Kanpur.
The Organization reserves all rights to accept or refuse membership to any person without assigning any reason.

 

HELPING IMAMIA YOUTH ORGANIZATION IS EASY AND REWARDING IN HEREAFTER

 
We, at IYO, believe in "doing our work without making any noise". And our work manifests our policy.
If you believe that everybody should seek Allah's pleasure by serving the humanity and His religion then you are the right candidate who may help us.
We not only need monetary help to accomplish our goal but want your moral support and encouragement too. You may also assist us by sending us Islamic literature, films, videos and audios, links of useful websites, etc.
Apart from this, the Organization earnestly needs sincere and hard working young Shias in different cities and towns of India who may serve as contact/source persons at the time of arranging any camp (e.g.for career guidance), exhibition or lecture etc in their localities.
Suggestions and new ideas may also be a way of assisting the cause.
