IHT has for some years become more involved with promoting the importance of physical activity by way of sports. As part of this campaign, we have been honoured to have regular Archery courses 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
This short course will include the following:
- The theoretical aspects of archery
- Health and safety
- Assembling the bows
- Shooting practice
- Games and competitions
