Executive Summary

In this course, Shaykh Yusuf Weltch aims to pinpoint the 12 biggest challenges that youth face while trying to hold on to their faith. He hopes to share the Prophetic guidance to equip the youth with what they need to respond to these challenges in the best way possible.

This course covers guidance and advice related to the 12 most difficult challenges that everyone will encounter. Guidance will be shared from the Qur’an and the Sunna of the Prophet (may Allah bless him and give him peace) as well as from personal experiences of Yusuf Weltch who himself converted to Islam and has dealt with many of these issues firsthand.

In a world full of increasing amounts of corruption and tearing of the moral fabric that once formed our world, youth are the ones who get the brunt of these harms. The youth are the target of much of the corruption we see around us and if they are properly equipped and well-informed on the guidance and teachings of Islam they will be able to make the right choices, overcome difficulties, and avert the harms of this world and the next.
