Our Philosophy

It is our belief that formal classrooms are necessary but insufficient for a comprehensive education.

Sometimes, the best classrooms are found in the natural beauty of Allah’s creation, and that some things are better learned through experience. 

We invite you to join us on a transformative journey amidst the awe-inspiring wonders of the outdoors. Our wilderness courses offer a unique opportunity for spiritual growth, leadership development, and the strengthening of bonds in faith.

“He has placed into the earth firm mountains, so it does not shake with you, as well as rivers, and pathways so you may find your way.”

Qur'an 16:15

“And We have placed firm mountains upon the earth so it does not shake with them, and made in it broad pathways so they may find their way.”

Qur'an 21:31

OUR VALUES

Through the principles of suhba (companionship) and with the natural tarbiya (spiritual education) of a challenging environment, our programs provide a space for self-discovery and the nurturing of your relationship with Allah. 

As you learn to navigate the challenges of the wilderness alongside fellow believers, you’ll also cultivate personal resilience, community building skills, and a deeper appreciation for the natural world and your place in it.

In the wilderness, you’ll be exposed to your own strengths and weaknesses, giving you the opportunity to embody the qualities you wish to possess. You’ll learn the true meaning of gratitude, sacrifice, and the importance of prioritizing the collective over the individual self, with all its preferences and selfish tendencies.

OUR CLASSROOM

Our experienced leadership will lead you through awe-inspiring landscapes, facilitating moments of reflection, learning, and connection.

From Wyoming, Tennessee, New Mexico, Colorado, and beyond, each expedition is crafted to help you build your iman and forge lasting bonds with your fellow participants.

Amidst the breathtaking beauty of Allah’s creation, you’ll experience moments of awe and wonder, forge deep connections with your fellow participants, and find sweetness in the remembrance of Allah from dawn until dusk.

Abu Huraira said that when God’s messenger was travelling on the way to Mecca and came to a mountain called Jumdan he said, “Go on, this is Jumdan; the mufarriduna have gone ahead.” On being asked what the mufarriduna meant he replied, “Those men and women who make frequent remembrance of God.”
