ALLAH GAVE YOU GIFTS ﷻ

WILL YOU JUST THROW THEM AWAY?

Allāh ﷻ has gifted each of us with unique talents or skills, and the best way to show gratitude for these gifts is by using them to do something meaningful for His pleasure.

What could be better than calling to Allāh (da’wah) and helping people attain eternal happiness? However, walking on this path may prove difficult because:

Or maybe you’re already making some impact and progress as a leader of a da’wah organisation, but…

If you’re at the edge of your seat wanting to do something about this all, then I invite you to

A 4-DAY INTERACTIVE RESIDENTIAL MASTERCLASS TO HELP YOU BUILD YOUR VISION, DEVELOP YOUR STRATEGY AND IMPLEMENT THE PRINCIPLES TO MAKE AN IMPACT

YOU CAN LOOK FORWARD TO:

VISION SEMINARS & WORKSHOPS

Break free from an unfulfilled existence, expand your mindset and build a vision for your life, da’wah and activism; a vision that excites and motivates you to take the right set of actions to make it a reality. Our guides will help you gain clarity on where you want to see the world and where you see yourself in it.

STRATEGY SEMINARS & WORKSHOPS

Develop a carefully thought-out strategy that brings your vision to life; one where you feel that you have reached your full potential and maximised your impact on the world. You will identify your unique steps to share and defend Islam intellectually and academically.

LEADERSHIP SEMINARS & WORKSHOPS

Understand, develop and internalise key leadership principles and qualities that give you the confidence to believe and the courage to take action so that you can earn the blessings, success and pleasure of Allāh ﷻ. You will feel empowered to become a visionary that embodies positive assertiveness, humbleness and complete reliance that Allāh has your back.

1-TO-1 PROGRESSION SESSIONS

Engage with our instructors, participate in interactive discussions, and get personalised guidance and mentorship to help you identify the gaps in the da’wah to elevate the sector. Reach your full potential.

SPIRITUAL & TEAM-BUILDING ACTIVITIES

Experience the unity of brotherhood while developing skills for spiritual and character self-improvement and optimisation. The opportunity to network and connect with brothers on a greater mission will give you a sense of fulfilment and a realisation that you’re a part of something bigger.

4* SHARED ACCOMODATION & FULL BOARD MEALS

Relax and rejuvenate your mind and soul in a beautiful setting while enjoying healthy, delicious meals. The retreat is the perfect place to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of life and reconnect with your true purpose. Coupled with spiritual upliftment and development, you will feel inspired to take action on your vision with total clarity.

Are you still not convinced?

YOU’RE NOT ALONE

Many Muslims feel the same confusion, demotivation and disillusionment — and for some, these feelings are so paralysing that it leads to procrastination and inaction. But here’s why that’s not your fault:

Ultimately, you are afraid that you won’t be able to navigate through all these tests. But what if I told you that these tests are part of the road to the victory of Islam?

LET’S CHANGE THE NARRATIVE

VICTORY WON’T COME WITHOUT TESTS

Tests encourage you to step up, prove you’re worthy and earn a station closer to Allāh ﷻ in paradise that you wouldn’t have achieved had you not gone through this test.

When you genuinely believe this, even one of the worst things that can happen (death) doesn’t prevent you in making your vision a reality.

“DO YOU SUPPOSE THAT YOU WILL ENTER THE GARDEN WITHOUT FIRST HAVING SUFFERED LIKE THOSE BEFORE YOU? THEY WERE AFFLICTED BY MISFORTUNE AND HARDSHIP, AND THEY WERE SO SHAKEN THAT EVEN [THEIR] MESSENGER AND THE BELIEVERS WITH HIM CRIED, ‘WHEN WILL GOD’S HELP ARRIVE?’ TRULY, GOD’S HELP IS NEAR.”

[THE QUR’ĀN: 2:214]

The prophets, companions and countless other Muslim leaders went through tests; this was a way for Allāh ﷻ to distinguish the ones who truly believed from the rest.

Imagine following the footsteps of these leaders and achieving what they did, in this life and the next.

Imagine the social harmony you can establish through your work.

Imagine the immeasurable rewards of sadaqah jāriyah.

 

AND WHO IS BETTER IN SPEECH THAN ONE WHO INVITES TO ALLAH AND DOES RIGHTEOUSNESS AND SAYS, “INDEED, I AM OF THE MUSLIMS.”

[THE QUR’ĀN: 41:33]

Imagine dedicating your life to this da’wah, the greatest form of worship:
TO GLORIFY ALLĀH AND MAKE HIS WORDS THE HIGHEST.

WHAT A PHENOMENAL VISION!

OUR VISION

We want to see a world that receives the message of Islām and where Muslims can intellectually and academically share and defend the faith.

Our strategic focus is, as a team, to share and defend Islām intellectually and academically, and to create, empower and develop others to do so too. This includes the development of leaders and activists with a clear vision, strategy and necessary skills.

SO, WHAT DID YOU DO WITH YOUR GIFTS?

This is the question we’re going to be asked on the Day of Judgement as Allāh ﷻ says,

THEN YOU WILL SURELY BE ASKED THAT DAY ABOUT PLEASURE.

[THE QUR’ĀN: 102:8]

The way we respond then depends on the action steps we take now. Will you answer negatively and feel the pain of regret and neglect of your duty to Allāh? Or will you answer positively and feel the happiness and contentment of pleasing Allāh? Whatever happens then depends on the action you take now.

If you’ve got this far, you’re probably someone who wants to achieve their full potential, make a tremendous impact on the world and become a successful, confident visionary leader, da’ee or activist for the Muslim Ummah.
