Fun Islamic Activities For Adults: This may be your only chance to flee this massacre of spirits and individuality; so hold my hand and take a leap of faith with me!

Isn’t it sad that life has become a rigid cycle of routine, to which we all are unwillingly attached? Gray days and gray nights go by without any droplet of colors until our eyes forget what colors look like. 

Such a life is difficult to go through without either breaking free of the wheel of routine or losing oneself to it completely, slowly turning into robot. We wouldn’t want option number to be your fate; so, allow us to walk you through option number one.

Fun Islamic Activities for young adults and adults:

Engaging in fun and enriching Islamic activities can be a great way for adults to deepen their connection with their faith.

The answer to rebelling against that awful wheel is indulging oneself in fun Islamic activities, dedicated to young adults and adults. This may be your only chance to flee this massacre of spirits and individuality; so hold my hand and take a leap of faith with me!

1- Reading:

Reading is definitely one of the most enjoyable activities by everyone; as it allows the mind to wander to other places, other times, and other lives, creating an opening out of the rigidity of our lives.

Add some Islamic books to your list, and make them as variable as possible; add some Islamic literature, some Sirahs of the prophet and the Sahabah, some Islamic history books, and some Islamic educational books. Such a rich and colorful list will definitely keep you entertained as you feed on it for a long time.

2- Singing Nasheeds:

Although singing Nasheeds is mainly a kids’ activity, adults can enjoy it a lot as well. This activity can be fun on its own accord and as a reminder of our childhood at the same time.

You can compose your own lyrics, or sing one of the Islamic songs or Nasheeds already released by Muslim artists.

3- Nature meditating:

Nature meditation is one of the most relaxing and fun Islamic activities such as Islamic Summer Camp  for adults. Take a stroll in a natural landscape, and empty your head of all its worries and concerns, allowing your eyes and ears to feed on nature, and cleansing your heart and mind clear of the troubles of the world.

In Islam, we are recommended to wonder at nature as Allah’s creation. So, whenever you go for a walk in a natural landscape; be it a sea, a river, a forest, a desert, or a mountain… etc., think about how Allah Almighty has created those things and used them to put the world in order.

4- Visiting an orphanage:

Another fun and Islamic activity for kids as well as for the youth is visiting an orphanage. Such an activity is refreshing for the soul, purifying for the heart, and fun for the adult spirit; as there is no greater joy than to play with a kid, forget about all the worldly concerns, and focus on their musical laughter and cheerful smile.

Fit visiting orphanages into your regular schedule, and try to cover all the orphanages in your area in order to earn the Thawab of making more and more children happy.

5- Listen to Islamic podcasts:

It’s a highly important Islamic activity for youth to listen to Islamic podcasts; as it’s one of the modern, easy, and effective methods of learning in the modern technological age.

Many websites release regular Islamic podcasts about a variety of topics, which allows you to choose the speakers of your preference. Being online, you can listen to these podcasts whenever you fit it into your schedule. 

6- Competitions and games: 

Competitions and games are an excellent way to communicate with other people who have similar interests and affiliations.

Gather your friends around for informational competitions; such as: who is Allah’s messenger who has, which character of the Quran this is, and where did that historical event take place.

You can also divide your friends into two groups for a little bit more excitement and have the winning team enjoying a prize prepared by the other team.

7- Joining Muslim groups:

Joining Muslim groups is among the most enjoyable Islamic activities for high school students; as finding friends of the same age group, with similar worldly interests, and above all: the same religious affiliation, can be a great blessing.

Indulge yourself in fun activities and games with these Muslim groups in order to make more Muslim friends. You can find such groups in Masjids or Muslim community centers, among other places.

8- Playing sports:

Playing sports is very beneficial for our bodies, and an excellent Islamic activity especially when going swimming, doing archery, or horse riding as recommended by the prophet, with the intention of obeying him, and following his guidelines.

These sports will strengthen your body, sharpen your moves, and alert your concentration all the time. Moreover, exercising helps clear the mind, expel all negative thoughts out of our minds, and is a healthy outlet for anger and frustration.

Don’t lock yourself up in an endless maze of rigidity, and let the brightness of life activities invade the darkness of routine. Let us know in the comments what weapon of this list you will use against routine.
