ALL WOMEN WELCOME
In our Western lives, we are often consumed with responsibilities of work & family life. This routine often leads to us neglecting the needs of our spiritual, physical and emotional well-being. This retreat in the heart of Welsh countryside aims to break the cycle to rejuvenate our connection to the Divine in the beautiful surroundings of Lake Bala, South Wales.
The program will consist of a range of activities to give attendees a holistic experience of practicing their faith away from the modern urban jungle.
We will be accompanied by Ustadha Badriya Tahhan, Ustadha Iffet Pith Rafeeq and Ustadha Misba Khan who are dynamic, relevant and authoritative teachers from the UK with a deep understanding of issues associated to the Muslim women in our communities.
The retreat will also have in attendance the female nasheed artists Pearls Of Islam who will be sharing their melodious tunes to enlighten our hearts.
The program will run over 4 days from Friday 14th to Monday 17th August 2015.
– Classes, workshops, gatherings of remembrance and wide range of activities including:
• Rowing Boats
• Raft Building
• Rock Climbing
• High Ropes
We are blessed to have direct access to female teachers who have studied at the feet of leading scholars such as Habib Umar bin Hafiz, Shaykh Muhammad Yaqoubi and Shaykh Gul Muhammad Al Azhari.
Situated in South Wales, Glann Llyn is a 600 acre site with stunning views overlooking Lake Bala. Students will be sharing en-suite bedrooms which can accommodate up to eight people.
