What is Scouts?
Scouts is one of the largest youth organisations in the world with over 40 million members!
It looks to change lives by offering 6 to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.
As a value based organisation, SHADE SCOUTS is guided by 5 core values (which is also the acronym for SHADE):
- Service – خدمة – To serve the creation.
- Honesty – صدق – To be honest & truthful in our dealing with everyone.
- Aspiration – طموح – We promote towards a higher purpose in life.
- Decorum – أدب – We promote outstanding conduct and mannerism.
- Education – تعليم – To learn and educate ourselves.
Through this Scouting helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Developing skills such as teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.
What is Muslim Scouting?
Out of the 40 million Scouters worldwide, more than half are Muslim!!
The success of Muslim Scouting can be attributed to the values of Scouts being interconnected to the principles of Islam. Unquestionably, the scouting values of integrity, respect, care, belief and cooperation are all harmonious to Islamic principles and are key characteristics we wish to see in young Muslims today.
