Spiritual Retreats

A spiritual retreat is a weekend getaway at a specific location away from the distractions of every day life. Its purpose is to create an environment conducive to the assimilation of transmitted sacred knowledge giving the seeker every chance to absorb, process and permanently infuse it into his life thereby not only benefitting himself but also relatives, friends and the community at large.

Da’wah Road Trips

A da’wah road trip is a weekend away in an impoverished outlying area. Its aim is for the group to connect to people in the area and call to Allah. This is done not only by inviting residents to the programs run by the senior ulama in attendance but also in the behaviour and mannerisms of every single person in attendance which must be in full co-ordinance with the magnificent sunnah of our master and leader Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Salam.

  • April 2015 – Hermanus
  • September 2015 – Saldanha, Langebaan and Vredenberg
  • March 2016 – George and Mossel Bay
