The Journey of the Believers is a four day all inclusive residential retreat that will empower you to grow in knowledge and build a deeper connection with Allah. This is the second retreat in our ‘Islam Essentials’ series.
Your day will start with fajr followed by a prayer workshop designed to help you progress in having a deep and meaningful conversation with your Lord each and every time you pray.
After that, classes, interactive workshops and thought-provoking breakout sessions will make you appreciate the true beauty of this religion both in theory and in practice as you bond with your fellow attendees.

The retreat gave me confidence as a revert to join in with the other brothers, learn more about my life and how i can connect to God. It has been a whirlwind of fun and emotions that i never ever wanted to end. –Aidan Scully
At the retreat, learning the prayer in a relaxed, step by step way is a core part of the experience. Even if you already know how to pray, we’ve got an advanced prayer workshop that will be right up your ally!

I was a Muslim for many years but I see now that it was not enough to call myself Muslim but now after attending the retreat I have the tools to practice and Insha’Allah I will be on my way to attaining the next level – that of Mu’min Alhamdulillah. With the guidance of Allah, I will succeed. Alhamdulillah for the retreat. –Ayesha Ejaz
It’s not all lectures! During the retreat, having fun together is an important part of the weekend!. Here, we’re playing the popular game, ARTICULATE!
The retreat is a rare opportunity to pray all your prayers in a safe space where you can learn at your own pace.
This was truly an inspirational experience meeting such beautiful, and inspiring people. I really did not want it to end. InshaAllah. I will definitely be attending the next retreat so if you have not attended don’t even hesitate to book because it will change your life for the better subhanAllah! –Sarah C
I was looking for something to help me feel more at peace and to learn how to live as a Muslim day to day. The weekend was extremely useful in many ways, for example, I am now confident in completing wudu. Praying five times a day as part of a group was invigorating. I feel more confident in recitation and would like to continue further with this. The volunteers were amazingly patient, very caring and worked extremely hard. A week later I am still reflecting on the weekend, but I wanted to make sure that you are aware of how useful it was and how grateful I am – Sarah B
