Join us during the blessed month of Sha’ban for an intimate weekend of spirituality and learning, as we prepare for the holy month of Ramadan by contemplating the divine wisdom in fasting of the body and feasting of the spirit.

We will begin with the mentions of the holy month of fasting in the Quran and hadith. Then, we will transition to the deep symbolism in fasting, as a metaphor for journeying from body to soul, and from the physical world to spiritual meaning.

We look forward to welcoming you this Spring to Adhwaq’s Ramadan Retreat!
