The Rihla Programs were an outgrowth of the Deen Intensives’ success, initiated by Dar al Islam in the early 1990’s. 

In recognition of the success of bringing students and scholars together in a retreat setting for intense study, the Rihla programs grew. 

Current Rihla programs, organized by other organizations such as the the Deen Intensive Foundation, take students to such restive places as Fex, Morocco, Grenada, Spain and our very own Abiquiu, New Mexico.
