Nourishing the soul
A 3 day Ladies only retreat set in the heart of the Mendip hills. Prepare yourself spiritually, physically, and mentally for the blessed month of Ramadan with a weekend in nature, collective worship, and dhikr.
It has been narrated that the companions of the Prophet Muhammed ( peace be upon him) used to prepare for the month of Ramadan, six months in advance. In order to fully reap the full benefits of Ramadan, we are advised by our scholars to start preparing well before we meet Ramadan.
"Rajab is the month to sow the seeds; Shaban is the month to irrigate the crop, and Ramadan is the month to reap the harvest.”
Spend a weekend with us planting our seeds with dhikr, tahajjud, and daily reflections. irrigating our crop with morning walks in nature, nutritious homemade food, singing songs of praise ( nasheeds) and reciting and reflecting upon Quran so that we are mentally, physically, and spiritually ready to reap our harvest in the month of Ramadan
The retreat will also consist of communal worship and reconnecting to the traditional recitation of the classical texts such as Qasidah Burdah, Dalail Khayrat and Recitation from Ad-Daybai to inspire the love of Allah (swt) and his beloved ( peace be upon him)
This experience is full of soulful sister connections and compassionate explorations. Stepping into this journey of re-connection and nourishing our souls together will uplift, rejuvenate, and inspire you to manifest deeper love in your mind, body, and spirit
All are welcome, regardless of where you may be on your journey.

Ladies of Light Winter Retreat 2019
This retreat is like no other. You learn so much about yourself through our teachers who skillfully manage the program effortlessly. This was such a revelation and done so simply. I learnt about things from a deep Islamic and Prophetic perspective which brought me so much closer to the Beloved SAW. The environment was beautiful and the food was nourishing, wholesome and nutritious. This is an opportunity every woman should take, and a journey we must all take to improve ourselves and our relationship with Allah.
