Pilgrims at Home is a game hosted by Masjid Rabata that provides an intensive worship schedule with a points system given for each worship activity. It is held during the first 10 days of Dhul-Hijja, which is a sacred month that we all want to benefit from. Pilgrims at Home helps walk us through some worship activities that will help us deepen our relationship with Allah (swt) and grow spiritually. 

Teens can join Pilgrims at Home with their families or join a teen group. They can also join the Rabateens Pilgrims at Home class, where they will meet daily to stay motivated, ask questions and work on earning points together. 

More about the class:

-    Teens will meet daily for 1 hour on Zoom, for support and encouragement, learn more about the worship activities, earn points together, and ask questions.

-    Teens will split into teams of 5, and each team will join a Whatsapp group to encourage and support each other. They can also choose to join an adult team instead of a teen team.

-    Teens will be playing the same game as adults and will use the same scoresheets. They can compete to be winners in the whole Pilgrims at Home!
