Inspired by the profound wisdom of Mawlana Hazar Imam, who once remarked, "There is a human impulse it seems -- fed by fear -- to define 'identity' in negative terms. We often determine 'who we are' by determining who we are against ”. At Awaken, we invite you to rewrite this narrative by adopting a learner-centered approach that uncovers the richness and depth of our faith. Mawlana Hazar Imam also states, “…And often the more secure we are in our own identities, the more effective we can be in reaching out to others." Hence, the program contributes towards empowering the Jamat to feel more secure in their own identities and in communicating with others.
