Partying, dating, drinking and pre-marital sex have become normal practices in Western society. And many Muslim youth in the West, especially those is public school, feel the pressure to conform to these norms on a daily basis. Ahmad Sakr tackles these issues head-on with a workshop meant to be a starting point for finding solutions to this predicament. His convincing approach is simple, straight-forward, humorous and daring. Hear about Dr. Sakr's own personal experience of peer pressure and how he dealt with it. And also get practical advice from college-age Muslims who have traveled down the same road but were able to triumph over the pressures they faced. This candid, interactive workshop allows the youth in attendance to open up and inquire about the issues troubling them in their social dealings which are negatively affecting their faith. An equally important session for both youth and parents! (Duration: 1 hour, 35 min)
