Student Retreat 2017

The AMSA Student Retreat returns for 2017!

Following on from the successful event last year, this year’s Retreat is again packed with innovative and interactive activities throughout. Unlike any other MKA event, this is an event organised exclusively by university students for university students. So whether you’re just starting university this year or are just leaving university, we have a weekend of spiritual insight and career guidance that you won’t find anywhere else.

Key Features

  • Meet like-minded khuddam from UK universities
  • Inspiring & unique spiritual talks at Student Talk (details soon)
  • Pub Langar quiz
  • Group Seminars on:
    • How to do effective tabligh
    • How to maximise academic and job-seeking success
    • Surviving in the Wilderness
    • How to harness your potential for the Jama’at

Testimonials from past years

“I have wanted to go out there and start doing tabligh all of a sudden. When I got home in Sunday I couldn’t stop telling my family about the things I learned and all the things I enjoyed.”
“To be honest it has helped me spiritually and mentally. Now I know what to do and how to approach university.”
“I feel that the Retreat has affected me to learn about Ahmadiyyat more… that is that we should perform tabligh where ever we go, and that we should do it with taqwa.”
“Allowed me to self reflect and gain a better understanding of my peers, Islam and Ahmadiyyat.”
“It has made me stronger spiritually and more determined with my faith as I was surrounded by spiritual people in a very spiritual environment. I was very grateful for the opportunity to ask many questions to our young imams who were present there.”
“Praying in congregation 5 times a day is amazing.”
