The New Mexico Muslim Women’s Association
Muslim Women’s RetreatSeptember 7 - 9, 2017

Mission: The New Mexico Muslim Women’s Association acknowledges that as a group we come together in an open forum for the purpose of exchanging ideas and discussing issues concerning Islam and Muslims. We use as our main points of guidance the Holy Quran and the Sunna of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

The spectacular scenery and penetrating silence of this spiritual place provides a perfect setting for prayer, study, meditation and fellowship.

Women of all faiths are welcome.

Dates: September 7 – 9, 2017

Who should attend? - Women, aged 12 and above, interested in spiritual renewal and enrichment from an Islamic perspective.

Speaker: Dr. Maria Dakake, Associate Professor of Religious Studies, George Mason University

Cost: Regular Admission - $185, Youth (12-21) and Seniors (65+) - $135. Late registration after August 1 – add $25.

Registration deadline is September 1, 2017.

Lectures topics:
1. Surat al-Kahf (18): Finding the Center
2. Surat Maryam (19): Speech, Silence, and Solitude

Dr. Dakake authored the commentary for both surahs in the Study Quran, and suggests participants read those sections before the retreat. She plans to use these thematic discussions to speak about why the lessons of these surahs are so important for us in the contemporary world.
