SimplyIslam.sg presents Journey to Ihsan – A SimplyIslam Seekers’ Retreat.
Ihsan means beneficence, performance of good deeds, and it implies the doing of good deeds over and above what is just and fair. It is indicative of the intense devotion of man towards his Creator and Master and his enthusiasm for virtue and piety. The aim of Ihsan is to create a sense of inner piety in man and to train his sensibilities in a way that all his thoughts and actions flow from the fountainhead of the love of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala.
Indeed we are living in a period of great technological advancements, colossal political and economic challenges, frequent natural calamities, and personal tribulations. Muslims are realising that getting closer to the Love of Allah and His Messenger (s) is the way of reconciling the great tribulations of this age. Young and old, they are turning towards Islamic spirituality.
Throughout the centuries Islam has always been conveyed in a holistic fashion, through the articles of Islam, Iman and Ihsan. At SimplyIslam, and at this Seekers’ Retreat, we want to explore the wealth of knowledge in spiritual sciences, and heritage of wisdom written and taught by learned scholars of the past and present. Several local and international scholars will draw out this treasure of knowledge and scholarship, through which insha’Allah, we can effect great spiritual affluence and refinement of character.
Among the most critical need for Muslims today is to understand and embrace the concept of Ihsan as exemplified by Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, and his sincere companions and followers. Through Ihsan we can enhance human values, character, spirituality and our relationship with society, community and the world. Through the discourses in this Retreat, seekers will learn to manage their lives as a Muslim and assimilate traditional and spiritual values in the modern world.
Join us in this Seekers’ Retreat, and embark upon this voyage of the soul ~ the Journey to Ihsan.
