Programme

The retreat will begin in the evening on Friday 22 September and continue until mid-day on Sunday 24 September. We offer daily activities from morning to night, but the programme also gives time for contemplative walks by the sea and opportunities to enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings. See full schedule.

The topic for the retreat is All is One. Shaykh Mohammad Muslim Eneborg will talk and advise on this topic and we will work on our personal transformative engagement in the rise of universal consciousness and alignment to Absolute Truth. Pavel Siddique will give talks on his personal spiritual journey and share his knowledge of yoga. There will also be a workshop facilitated by Fatim and Yusuf Muslim Eneborg, where we further explore our inner selves.

Breakfast and one warm vegetarian meal will be served Saturday and Sunday. At all other times, a self-serving buffet table will be available with sandwiches, fruit, tea/coffee and more (contributions are welcome). All food served at the retreat will be vegan or vegetarian, participants with other dietary restrictions or allergies are kindly requested to contact us personally. Feel free to bring your own food, cooking facilities are available at the premises.

For those bringing children, please note that children are not expected to take part in the lectures and dhikr sessions. Parents will be responsible for arranging supervision and activities for their children during these times. We recommend that all parents with children, between themselves, organize a rotary system for the supervision of their children during talks and dhikr sessions. There will be indoor as well as outdoor areas reserved for this purpose.

Speaker and facilitators

Shaykh Mohammad Muslim Eneborg is a Swedish imam, spiritual guide and teacher. After converting to Islam when he was 20 years old, he travelled the Islamic world extensively, particularly North Africa and the Indian subcontinent. These varied insights and experiences would later influence his characteristic balanced and informed view of Islam.

After his travels, he settled in the UK where he completed an ‘Alimiyya (religious sciences) course. He began his studies at the Tablighi Markaz in Dewsbury before moving on to study in India and later at Darul Uloom Bury, Europe’s oldest traditional Islamic college. He has since then worked as an imam at several mosques in the UK and Sweden, taught Islam at universities and other institutions, and been engaged in dialogue and debates about inter-religious cooperation and the role of religion in the modern world.

A spiritual guide in the Chishti, Naqshbandi, Qadiri and Suhrawardi traditions, Shaykh Muslim is a fountain of guidance and spiritual instruction for seekers of all ages and persuasions, in Sweden as well as abroad.
