IHT has recently become more involved with promoting the importance of physical activity by way of sports. As part of this campaign, we are honoured to present an Archery course tailored specifically for children. This is a sport not only exhilarating, competitive and enduring; it is a sport that was recommended and blessed by the beloved Messenger of Allah, abundant peace and blessing be upon him. IHT recognises the need to revive such Prophetic traditions as archery truly is a universal sport.
The Messenger of Allah, abundant peace and blessing be upon him, said:
'Allah, Most High, will cause three persons to enter Paradise for one arrow: the maker when he has a good motive in making it, the one who shoots it, and the one who hands it'
- Sahih Muslim
Participants will get the opportunity to learn how to shoot arrows from qualified instructors, all who have been certified by Archery GB. Below are just some of the facets that the course will consist of:
- Introduction to Archery and its importance
- Health & Safety Instructions
- Explanation of the type of Bow & Arrow being used
- The Theory behind Shooting
- Practice Shooting
- Games & Competitions
- Evaluation & Key Values of Archery
