Description

In earlier times, chivalry was a code that was mastered by knights and people of a spiritual path. In the times of the Prophet Muhammad (May Allah's blessings and peace be upon him) he stated "I was only sent to perfect noble character". The one seeking perfection is trying to perfect both nobility and character. In arabic the word is Futuwwa which is honourable behaviour, and is the path of the prophets, saints and sages. by adhering to this the student learns detachment from ego.

The Companions of the cave were 7 young men and their dog who hid from the evils of the tyrannical king to protect their worship of Allah. It is argued that we are in those times where we must protect our practise of the worship of the one creator and must board the sunnah of companionship.

Allah says in the noble book -

"Alif, Lam Mim, that is the bookm without any doubt. It contains guidance for those who have Taqwa (awe of god): those who have trust in the unseen and establish salat and give of what we have provided for them"

Under this final dispensation of knowledge we should live with a great expectation in life made all the more luminous as the age increases in darkness. It will not be possible alone. Essential are a few companions for the company in the dark. - The Entire City (Ian Dallas)

The retreat that is based on Futuwwa. Alongside discourses, there will be singing Qasidas and hosting activities such as archery, martial arts and calligraphy, allowing the spiritual, physical and creative aspects of our selves to be nourished. It will be taking place in the wonderful dales of the Herd Farm Activity Centre (which is also used for screening Emmerdale on television) and accommodation, food, and activities will be included in the price.
