Live the Deen, Keep the Dream

  • Simon Theis Jensen

Live the Deen (religion in arabic), Keep the Dream aims to empower a majority of young Muslims growing up in Europe, to believe that their identity can encompass both faith and modernity. Many young ‘western’ Muslims stops to follow their passions and dreams because some believe their faith doesn’t allow it or others have been left to believe, by media, politicians and fellow countrymen that they don’t belong, don’t fit in and can’t succeed. Elays Network and Muslim Youth Forum (NMF) have come together to show young Muslims from Tower Hamlets in the UK to Turku in Finland, that you can be proud of your faith and follow your passion without comprising on your values and identity. Empowering that it is possible to Live the Deen and Keep the Dream.
