The Promise


The purpose of Scouting is to serve others, and uphold values that are based on those found in the Promise.

Each section has a Promise, which each member will pledge during the Opening Ceremony which takes place at every meeting.  Each section also recites Surah Al Fatiha, and the older sections recite Surah Al-Asr, as well as learning a law emphasising the values of their Promise.

Below are the details of what each section needs to learn for their ceremonies.

Beavers

Beavers recite Surah Al-Fatiha, followed by their Promise:

I promise to do my best
To be kind and helpful
And to love Allah

Cubs

As part of their Opening Ceremony, Cubs recite Surah Al-Fatiha, followed by their Promise:

Bismilahi-Rahmani-Raheem

I promise to do my best,
To do my duty to God, and to my country
To help other people
And to keep the Cub Scout Law.

Additionally, Cubs should also know the Cub Scout Law:

Cub Scouts always do their best,
Think of others before themselves
And do a good turn everyday
