Wholesome Lifestyle
حياة الطيبة | Hayat at-Tayyibah

Weekend Retreat | Fri 26 – Sun 28 April 2024
at Al-Maqasid, Pennsylvania, USA

Revive The Prophetic Legacy Of Health In Your Life

The epidemic of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and obesity, is a growing global health crisis, profoundly impacting societies through healthcare costs, reduced quality of life, and mortality rates.

Modern industrial medicine, in spite of its hopes and promises, is unable to solve this worldwide epidemic. Conscientious people across the world are reconnecting with time-tested holistic healthcare traditions for solutions to these modern lifestyle diseases.

Following in the footsteps of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), the Wholesome Lifestyle weekend retreat aims to restore your connection with nature – Fitrah, help you get more in balance with nature’s rhythms, and live a healthier lifestyle.
