UPCOMING RETREATS

Sacred Learning Retreats provide an opportunity for students to spend the day in the masjid enhancing their spiritual development while gaining knowledge of din (religion). The programs begin on Saturday afternoon (dhuhr) and continue through the evening. Retreats are held at the Sacred Learning Center and are open to both men and women. Of note, given the nature of the retreats, childcare is not provided, and children under the age of 11 are not encouraged to attend.

Separately, male attendees have the option of adding a Friday night and/or Saturday night stay during which time they are expected to remain in the masjid overnight to focus on their spiritual routines. One of our teachers (mashaikh) oversees the optional Friday and/or Saturday night stay in order for residing brothers to more completely attain their goals.

Tasawwuf is the traditional Islamic science of spiritual development. It seeks to rectify the soul so that the inner spiritual realities of the worship of Allah (the Exalted) are achieved. This seminar focuses on topics such as tasawwuf in the Holy Quran and the sunnah, the concept of taubah, the importance of daily dhikr, the body and the soul, and the nafs and how to curtail it. Insha’Allah, by the end of this seminar students should have an introductory understanding of tasawwuf as well as an appreciation of how it can benefit them. An opportunity for bayah will also be provided to students who are interested in developing themselves on this path.

Fasting has been a foundational act of worship for people of piety since the beginning of time. This seminar focuses on the spiritual and legal aspects of fasting (sawm), including the history of fasting, sunnahs of fasting, maximizing the spiritual effects of fasting, health-related benefits of fasting, that which invalidates the fast, and the spiritual dimensions of fasting.
