Mount Tahtalı, Antalya, Turkey

A Spiritual Retreat

The topics covered are crucial to having a sincere mindset, a patient attitude, and remaining firm on your faith during both difficulty and ease. In addition, learning the true meaning of ‘steadfastness’ and ‘true happiness’ will help you stay constant in performing good deeds regularly. The classes will be led by Shaykh Abu Ibrahim

Water For The World

The purpose of this retreat is to help bring water to those in dire need. The reality is that 783 million people worldwide do not have access to clean water, making it the single biggest obstacle to the progression and health of communities in the developing world.

Our Water for The World campaign targets those areas where interventions are most needed. The money raised will go towards a number of large-scale water projects across different locations including water well shares in Yemen, community wells in Niger, deep wells in Jerusalem and water infiltration plants in Pakistan.
