Nourishing the soul 


A 3 day Ladies only retreat set in the Peak District.  Prepare yourself spiritually, physically, and mentally for the blessed month of Ramadan with a weekend in nature, collective worship, and dhikr.


the Story

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.

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, Ramadan ready Herbal Medicine workshop 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.

Only 16 spaces are available

I found a come as you are attitude, I found souls who don’t care what profession you’re in but cared for your comfort, in a male dominated world, I found strength in these beautiful women who organised this. The location was breathtaking, the place was stunning, the organisers couldn’t have done enough and the space held will forever stay with me.

“Goodness comes from congregation”. I really felt the meaning of this during this retreat: The light was seen in our hosts; the teachings and lessons of the weekend and also in the women who had attended. Glad I got to be a part of this.
