The Muslim Youth League UK held its first 3-day Spiritual Retreat on the weekend of 16-18 November 2012. The Retreat was held at Minhaj-ul-Quran International Centre in Bradford. The retreat started with intentions of voluntary i’tikaf (spiritual seclusion) and included various activities to make it multidimensional. The participants were fortunate to have Shaykh Rehan Raza who delivered talks and took questions in the Q&A session. Shaykh Rehan has studied for a period of 10 years in Syria, Egypt and Pakistan under the most globally recognized scholastic authorities. He has taken Ijaza from the likes of the Grand Shaykh al-Azhar himself. The participants were also fortunate to have a class on the Fiqh of Purification delivered by Ustadh Waqas Amin, a student of Shaykh Atabek Shukurov.
