The Sacred Time Project is a biannual, weekend long conference that aims to develop its participants spiritually, impart within them a stronger knowledge and appreciation for the deen, and ultimately bring them closer to our Lord. It will be held from March 14th – 15th at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Our guest speakers are Sr. Rasheeda Plenty from Zaytuna College, and Shaykh Walead Mossad from the Tabah Foundation.
The program is expected to run from 5PM to 11PM on Friday and from 11AM to 10PM on Saturday. All meals will be provided, and housing arrangements can be made if necessary. Financial assistance is available upon request, as we would like all that are interested to be able to attend!
In essence, the Sacred Time Project promises to be an incredible weekend full of learning, reflecting, and lasting transformation. Dedicate your weekend to intense spiritual development, and make sure to bring your friends and family!
Originally started in Spring 2004, the Sacred Time Project Retreat has become an annual event held by our MSA. It has been a successful and beneficial event for attendees in which the interaction between the attendees and speakers was engaging and thought-provoking. Furthermore, it has brought people from various cities in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana to gain knowledge and build long-lasting friendships. This retreat has also allowed many students to feel connected with the tradition of Islamic scholarship. With a more intensive weekend retreat, we hope to continue this project and expand our topic selection to cover a wide array of issues from historic events, to Islamic scholarship, to contemporary issues.
