Spring Retreat 2018

 

We’ve again arranged a packed Spring Retreat for young Khuddam and Atfal at the beautiful venue of Jamia Ahmadiyya in Haslemere, Surrey.

With activities from going back in time to the early history of Islam to playing football and cricket to learning first aid to receiving mentoring about universities, this year’s Spring Retreat is a week full of educational and recreational activities.

It will – inshAllah – take place from the 1st to 7th April 2018 and is for 13-18 year olds. Places are limited so please register as soon as possible using this link.

We’re really excited about this event and look forward to seeing you too at this year’s Spring Retreat.

If its something that needs general guidance this will be provided, however if its individual(s) this will be taken up with the individual(s) privately. If the issue cannot be resolved and its to detriment of rest of the class the parents of child will be called and advised that their child needs to be taken home and cannot attend rest of the class.

Dr Zahid Khan

Dr Zahid Khan currently serves as Sadr Qadha Board UK. Born in Kenya Dr Sahib (as he is most commonly known as) moved with his 10 siblings to Gillingham, Kent when he was 7 years old, and is where he still lives today. Professionally he qualified as a dentist from UCL and has worked in practice for almost 40 years. He is also a keen sportsman, and is especially known for his interest in hockey. He was a member of the fondly remembered MTA (“Muslim Tigers Ahmadiyya”) hockey team that toured Europe. It is no coincidence that he is also a keen traveller, having backpacked through much of Europe and India. But perhaps he is mostly famously known as a recurring panellist on Faith Matters.
