Educational Retreats for New Muslims

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.

This retreat is a rare opportunity to eat, pray and live Islam in an uplifting environment, with a guarantee that when you return home, you’ll be able to implement what you’ve experienced for life.

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

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
