|The National Islamic Committee on Scouting has developed the Bismillah emblem to encourage Muslim youths who is Cub Scouts to advance in the knowledge and practice of Islamic religious living.
Muslims start any saying with “In the name of God, the Compassionate, 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 he should know (at the age) about the religion of Islam.
The pendant is attached to a bronze bar pin that carries the Arabic lettering from the Holy Book of Koran.
