In maintaining our commitment to keeping community first, education accessible, and promoting inclusivity, Maryam Islamic Center is facilitating a very high quality Umrah Spiritual Retreat package at a very affordable price — 3 days in Madinah and 4 days in Makkah — under the leadership of our very own Shaykh, Imam Ahmad Khan.
We will be traveling with a maximum of 50 community members so that we are able to bond, learn, and develop spiritually as a unit.
Our journey begins on Friday, March 6th from George Bush International Airport. After comfortably arriving to Madinah on Saturday night, we will be staying at Intercontinental Madinah-Dar al-Iman.

We will spend Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday practically connecting with the blessed Seerah (life) of our Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, by visiting with our blessed Prophet (PBUH), visiting Masjid al-Nabbawwi, and many of the Sacred Hallmark sites in Madinah. Our journey will also include daily spiritual development (tarbiyyah) lectures in the Haram, along with a step by step Umrah preparation.
After Salat al-Dhuhur (mid-day prayer) on Tuesday-March 10th, we will depart for Makkah. We will stop at Masjid Abyar Ali (Dhul Hulayfah) to affirm our intention for ihram and the performance of Umrah.
In Makkah, we will be staying at The Fairmont Royal-Tower, which is right next to masjid al-Haram, Alhumdulillah.
In addition to the ultimate comfort and casual elegance of the five-star hotel, the Fairmont Royal-Tower provides exclusive elevators that allow easy access to and from Masjid Al Haram.
The Fairmont Hotel offers unmatched hospitality throughout the splendorous hotel. Captivating views of Masjid Al Haram and the Kaba, and a passion for uncompromising service combine to create an experience that is exquisite and truly unforgettable.
Designed with comfort in mind, pilgrims can truly heighten their spiritual experience of the Holy City.
After settling in to our rooms and quickly freshening up, we will meet in the lobby and begin our step by step guided Umrah, with Imam Ahmad – who always takes extra care to keep the group together during the spiritually uplifting journey.
We will spend Wednesday, Thursday Friday & Saturday soaking up and connecting with the rich prophetic history of Makkah. We will visit many of the Sacred Hallmark sites in Makkah, coupled with daily spiritual development (tarbiyyah) lectures in the Haram to encourage a truly unique experience of spiritual development and growth, and in sha Allah, establish a deeper connection with Allah.
Our departure and arrival back home to the United States will be from Jeddah on March 15th.
