Are you craving to be immersed in spirituality?

This Inspirational Itikaaf (spiritual retreat) is a blessed moment for us to immerse ourselves in the remembrance of Allah and His Prophet ﷺ. During our hectic lives a moment of stillness and contemplation are valuable gifts which Allah only bestows upon his chosen slaves.

The Prophet ﷺ is reported to have said ‘a moment of contemplation is better than a thousand years of worship’ . Within this time we will realign our hearts to the divine and reconnect ourselves to the only two activities that are blessed and everlasting in this abode, with all else being cursed, the blessed activities of Allah’s remembrance and all that is connected to it and the teacher and student of sacred knowledge.

The Prophet ﷺ has said: ‘The world is accursed and that which is within it except the Glorification of Allah and that which is associated with it and the teacher and student of sacred knowledge and that which is associated with it’. We beseech Allah’s subtle succour to bless our time and flow over us his divine grace. By the grace of Allah you will be joined by various scholars.
