    Advice to gardeners.  Tend your love like a tender drink trim it back to give it vigor train its tendrils to give it form and symmetry Love cries for care but yearns for freedom. Whether from neglect or boldness you drop the pruning shears loose the knots your tame garden will leap to to boundless jungle. We build You palaces for our prayers but You sneak out the back door to make Your home in the cracks of pavement. We bring you poems but You cling to whispers. We court you with grand gestures You prefer little acts of love. Your greatness is made known in Your humility.

    Unveiling of the Unseen

    The tazkiyah workshop is an introduction to the very practical course of tazkiyah as developed  by Abdul Nadir Milan رضي الله عنه‎‎ and described in His book "the secret of secrets". It has been developed over the years by the Shaykh further into a full course for seekers to follow step by step; traditionally it is a two to three year program of tazkiyah. Their are four stages of purification: 1 the body; stage 2 the mind ; stage 3 the heart; and stage 4 is the soul.  The spiritual retreat, introduces the seeker to some of the concepts and practical methodology of muraqaba that was traditionally only taught to those after completing the tazkiyah program. In the final stage of purification the seeker is taught various muraqaba which ultimately lead to " enlightenment"  or annihilation in the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, and the Visitation of Prophet  صلى الله عليه وسلم
    The seeker is then also taught the prayer of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, which He mentioned after returning from the mi'raj ; They said that " prayer is the mi'raj of the believer". Through this prayer the seeker is able to establish a connection to ALLAH and to be in the presence of ALAH in their state and throughout their day and life, attaining the closeness of ALLAH in this world and the next.  Traditionally the spiritual guide or "Shaykh" would take the seeker to this point over many years; once the seeker reaches this point they may take direct guidance in the spiritual world and no longer requires the guide. The guide is only their to show them the way , to follow the path that all the auliya have taken in their journey to reach the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, and the Divine pleasure of ALLAH.  The teacher, Ahmad Dabbagh, has been guiding seekers on this path for 30 years now, and has taught this methodology to individual seekers at their level. Only last year they now made this methodology open to the general public  under the organization "mi'raj"  through these "unveiling retreats". The wisdom is that in these difficult times where the evil influences are strong, there is a greater need for positive spiritual influence, and the Shaykh decided to make this available to the ummah to help in this internal struggle. This retreat will introduce the seeker to both the theory and practical methodology required to commence this journey to the pleasure of ALLAH.
