3 Focuses for our Muslim Women’s Retreat:

  • Community
  • Islamic History
  • Health & Fitness


We know how hard it has been for women to meet each other over the last 2 years, especially those who like myself, became Muslim recently and don’t have a community around them.

Many of us have built online friends and an online community which is great, but there’s nothing like in-person connections.

When women get together it is so so special, I witnessed this in the women’s group tours in India I ran in 2020 and we want to be able to provide a retreat for sisters in a safe, beautiful, private, peaceful setting for Muslim women to be able to do this.

Islamic History

There is over 800 years of Islamic History in Spain which so many of us don’t know about! If you are a European Muslim or were brought up in Europe, you may feel disconnected to Islam because of your location but your mind is bound to change when you realise just how much history there is in Spain!

We want to show women around what was the Muslim area in Granada and show them the new mosque in Granada which took so long to build and is a testament to the Muslims of Granda and the surrounding areas.

The Alhambra is one of the most popular tourist sites in Spain, it is seeped in Islamic history and incredible Islamic architecture. We want to take Muslim women on a really unique tour of Alhambra to see and understand the spiritual side because the amount of lines from the Quran on the walls is unbelievable.

Health & Fitness

Modest Fitness is all about promoting and encouraging a healthy lifestyle for women, which is how myself and Abdiya first met and first connected because we both feel so passionate about it.

How many times have we been on holiday only to come back feeling like we’ve put on weight, we need to go on a diet and feeling lethargic from such little movement on holiday, or feeling totally exhausted and in need of another holiday??

I love the idea of going away, having a holiday, experiencing a new culture but also eating healthy, moving regularly and therefore coming home feeling good, refreshed and revived and that’s what we’re going to give you from this retreat!

We also want to help your motivation before and after the retreat in working out, eating right and living a sustainable healthy lifestyle.

Retreat in Spain for Muslim Women

These retreats are for Muslim women only, or those looking at reverting to Islam.

We ask women to come as you are.

We don’t want you to worry if you don’t wear hijab.

We don’t want you to worry if you fully cover and prefer to stay fully covered.

We don’t want you to worry if you don’t pray all of your prayers yet.

We don’t want you to worry if you don’t know HOW to pray yet.

We don’t want you to worry if you can’t speak any Arabic.

We don’t want you to worry if you’ve never been to a retreat like this before.

We don’t want you to worry if you’ve never done yoga.

We don’t want you to worry if you’re not even a Muslim yet.

We just ask you to come as you are with a positive attitude and open mind.

Al salamu alaykum.

I always wanted to go to Spain to visit the historic Islamic sights such as Al-Hambra etc. I have also come to feel lately that I need som kind of muslim retreat. The only thing that prevents me to sign in for one of your trips to Spain is the timing. I work as a teacher, so I can only travel in the childrens school holidays, and all of your trips are in my working time, so I cannot join you even if I wanted. Would it be possible to make trips in the future in the month of July or in the autumn vacation in week 42?

Ma salam, Amina


Monday 19th of December 2022

Salaam Amina, there are more retreats coming up next year with some in school holidays. If you follow @mf_retreats on Instagram or go to the link I give in the website you will see all the 2023 dates :)

Salam, Do you think this trip would be appropriate for somebody who is 60 plus. Can somebody join from the US.


Tuesday 12th of July 2022

Salaam, yes anyone can join from any country and of any age. As long as you have a good level of fitness for walking and steps then it will be fine. We will send you some details via email shortly inshallah so keep a look out :)
