ISLAM AT A 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. God 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 God. It is such a set of principles
and beliefs that will satisfy every seeker of truth and reality.
Know you all that God has made Islam the most
sublime path towards His Supreme Pleasure and the
highest standard of His worship and obedience. He 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.

Instructions to Parents
and Cub Scouts
How a Cub Scout Earns
the Bismillah Emblem
What is the Bismillah Emblem?
1. Read the activities for the Bismillah program.
Your parents, Imam, religious school
teachers, and counselors will gladly help
and guide you on each activity.
Muslims start any saying with “In the name of
God, the compassionate, and the merciful.” So,
since Cub Scouting is the beginning program of
the BSA, when a boy learns something in this
field he should be awarded the “Bismillah
emblem” first. In earning this emblem, boys
will learn all the basic things they should know
(at the age) about the religion of Islam.
This program also provides the opportunity
for the boys to receive closer guidance from
parents, Imam and religious school teachers
who serve as counselors.
The pendant is attached to a bronze bar pin that
carries the Arabic lettering from the Holy Book
of Koran.
Who Is Eligible?
Any Cub Scout can earn the Bismillah emblem
if he is registered with a Cub Scout pack and
practicing muslim faith. However, by the time
he received the emblem, he should have
achieved the following:
Registered in Cub Scouting for at least 6
months. Earned the Bear rank (or earned at
least five Webelos badges). He must attend
religious school and practice the Islamic Law
and fulfill his obligation.
