Wayfarers Retreat 2022

Why Retreat with Darul Arqam?

“The contemplative believer who remembers God will begin to enjoy solitude and places of seclusion where voices and movements are hushed. There he will find strength of heart and will, and he will no longer be worried or depressed. He will begin to taste the sweetness of worship, of which he cannot have enough. In it, he will find abundance of pleasure and comfort – more than what he used to find in diversion and play, or in the satisfaction of worldly desires. When he experiences this state, many of the worldly concerns will disappear, as he is in a completely different world from the rest of humanity!”

–Ibn Al Qayyim, Madaarij As Salikeen

Darul Arqam invite you to join the Wayfarers Week Retreat for a week of remembrance and contemplation. Aiming to recreate an atmosphere of brotherhood, compassion and joy that emanates with true faith. We deliberately keep costs low so that the most people possible can benefit. We hope during week we can rejuvenate some of the meanings we have been studying within the various courses at Darul Arqam.  It is a joyful time, with attendance open to all, including families and we welcome children (for whom special activities have been arranged) since their presence is a means for the attraction of the angels of mercy. There are various activities, circles of sacred knowledge, circles of Qu’ran, remembrance, congregational prayers and sacred recreational activities which will enlighten the soul and draw you in proximity to our Lord.
