Event: “Once Upon A Time”

“Once Upon A Time”

As you may recall, our Islamic Character Development retreat (ICD) had to be postponed in May. Alhamdulillah, we are happy to announce our new dates: July 7-9, 2017 inshaAllah!

WHAT’S DIFFERENT: aside from the dates, our location has also changed! The program will run in its entirety at McMaster University and overnight accommodations will be at Hamilton Downtown Mosque (transportation to and from will be provided).

WHAT’S THE SAME: the theme has not changed; “Once Upon a Time” will focus on sahabi that struggled with challenges that parallel those that Muslim youth face today, so instead of seeing their stories as fairy tales, we see them as actual experiences we can learn from inshaAllah. Our program will also be as jam pakced as was planned for May, with workshops, lectures, discussions

Spots are limited! If you’d like to come be sure to apply as soon as possible at

If you applied for the previous dates, note that you are NOT required to apply again. Instead, email us stating your continued interest and reiterating if you will be staying overnight to confirm your attendance. We do not guarantee a spot to those that applied previously, so if you’re planning on coming be sure to email us at your earliest convenience.
