SEARCHING FOR LIGHT:
NAVIGATING UNCERTAINTY AND FINDING PEACE
اللَّهُ وَلِيُّ الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا يُخْرِجُهُمْ مِنَ الظُّلُمَاتِ إِلَى النُّورِ
God is the protector of those who have attained to faith, He takes them out of the darknesses and into the light. (Quran 2:257)
Quarantine, calamities, and constant anxiety. These are just some of the ways to describe how the past year has felt. With so much uncertainty, hardship, and trial all around us; we look to Islam and search for light in all we go through because we know Allah SWT does not put a believer through more than what they can bare. We trust his divine plan and try to stay steadfast but being human – our faith has peaks and valleys.
This year’s theme, Searching for Light: Navigating Uncertainty and Finding Peace, will focus on finding the spark that may have dwindled within us to seek Allah SWT’s guidance, process the tests we are enduring, and find peace and contentment within our hearts.
901 Ummah's yearly retreat is focused on reconnecting with deen and realigning ourselves during a three-day weekend filled with Islamic discussion and fun outdoor activities for youth and young professionals. Throughtout the weekend, individuals will have group halaqah's, seperate group circles, one-on-one mentoring time, team bonding activities, opportunities to meet Muslim youth from across Tennessee, and more.
The retreat ticket is priced at $110 per person and includes a two-night and three-day stay at YMCS Camp Ocoee. Daily halal meals will be provided by the camp, as well as various activities including hiking, canoeing, kayaking, archery, a high ropes course, and other outdoor sports.
*** DISCLAIMER: The cabins do not have an A/C system so be sure to pack for sweater weather!
