Islamic Scouting & BSA Mission Statement
Islam at Glance……...
Islam is the religion which God has chosen as a medium for you to understand your place in the universe and your relation with Him. Allah wants it to obliterate ignorance and heathenism from human minds, to quench their thirst for wisdom and knowledge and to propagate truth, justice and piety. The reasonableness and rationality of its doctrines is so powerful that they cannot be repudiated, falsified or belied.
Have you fully realized what Islam is? It is indeed a religion founded on truth. It is such a fountain-head of learning that from it flow out several streams of wisdom and knowledge. It is such a lamp that from it several lamps will be lighted. It is a lofty beacon of light illuminating the path of Allah. It is such a set of principles and beliefs that will satisfy every seeker of truth and reality.
Know you all that God have made Islam the most sublime path towards His Supreme Pleasure and the highest standard of His worship and obedience. He (Allah) has favored it with noble precepts, exalted principles, uncountable arguments, unchallengeable supremacy and undeniable wisdom. It is up to you to maintain the eminence and dignity granted to it by the Lord, to follow it sincerely, to do justice to its articles of faith and belief, to implicitly obey its tenets and orders and to give it the proper place in your lives.

Position Statement in Support of Diversity
More than 90 years ago, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) was founded on the premise of teaching boys moral and ethical values through an outdoor program that challenges them and teaches them respect for nature, one another, and themselves. Scouting has always represented the best in community, leadership, and service.
The Boy Scouts of America has selected its leaders using the highest standards because strong leaders and positive role models are so important to the healthy development of youth. Today, the organization still stands firm that their leaders exemplify the values outlined in the Scout Oath and Law.
On June 28, 2000, the United States Supreme Court reaffirmed the Boy Scouts of America's standing as a private organization with the right to set its own membership and leadership standards.
