scouts same core values around world

Muslims in Scouting share the same core values as scouts around the world.

At myDeen we are focused on helping every child achieve their full potential whether that be at a physical, spiritual, emotional or educational level. We believe that children and young adults will benefit from joining the scouts family.
 
The Scouting Family
The worldwide family of Scouts spans all continents and encompasses all the world’s major faiths and people. There are more than 28 million Scouts around the world, 500,000 of whom are in the United Kingdom. Scouting is a value-based, educational movement. It believes that the world is a better place when people:
  • are trustworthy, self-controlled and self-confident
  • have self-respect and respect for others
  • work together to serve other people and to improve society and
  • have an active faith
Because these principles are integral to Islam and analogous to its values, more than a third of Scouts in world are Muslim. Muslim Scouting in Britain and in the rest of Europe is relatively new. It has developed in the last ten years to cater for the needs of a growing second and third generation Muslims. Muslim Scouting developed to help young Muslims achieve their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international community.
