Insha-Allah, the 14th Annual Sacred Learning Retreat will be held from Friday, May 4, 2018 through Sunday, May 6, 2018. The program will begin after Maghrib (7:57 PM CDT) and will end at 10:00 am on Sunday. In addition to other activities, the retreat is an excellent opportunity to spend time with Shaykh Husain, as well as other Sacred Learning teachers and students.

Insha-Allah, similar to last year, the Sacred Learning teachers will be leading the retreat. The theme of the retreat will be “Ramadan.”

Please keep in mind that we will be staying in the masjid during the duration of the program and food will be provided.  You will need to bring your own bedding.  The Friday evening program is open to sisters, but the rest of the retreat is only open to brothers.

We are asking for everyone to register for food preparation purposes.Click here for the registration form.
