MICA KATIBAH

This is a yearly Event

The Movement for Islamic Culture and Awareness (MICA) has for over a decade sought to educate Muslims in particular, and the society at large, on the eternal truth and beauty of the Deen throughthe MICA Katibah (Spiritual Retreat).

 

The Katibah is a spiritual and personal development camp that is held at least once a year in a location outside the metropolis. We bring together children, adolescents and adults from diverse backgrounds and ethnicity and teach them Islam alongside living skills; we organize lectures, seminar and mentoring sessions in an environment of discipline and brotherhood under an atmosphere conducive to learning and development.

It has been evident from previous Katibah that the Islamic education of our children needs attention, a lot of work needs to be done in the areas of exposure, etiquette, value and belief systems. We cannot stress enough the importance of children in Islam; they represent renewed hope from an otherwise decaying society.

On average every year the Katibah host nearly 1,000 people with a mix of adults, adolescents and children.

The Future

Our hope is to build a suitable and environmentally friendly camp site gradually over the next few years to serve the needs of Muslims with regards to training and development. This we intend to start doing this year and we are turning to you now in hopes of enlisting your support. To neglect our children is to subject ourselves to certain ruin. We have a responsibility to them and an even greater duty to Allah who has entrusted them to us.
