The Chosen One

A guided Umrah experience studying the Prophet ﷺ

This March, join our AlMaghrib Blessed Voyage on a unique experience studying one of Islam’s most classic works on the Prophet ﷺ in the backdrop of where he lived, Mecca & Medinah.

Al-Shifa (fully titled Healing by the Recognition of the Rights of the Chosen One) is considered one of the greatest works on the rights of the prophet ﷺ, penned by the Andalusian scholar Al-Qadi Iyad.

The Blessed Voyage Difference:

Umrah is always special.

Traveling with AlMaghrib’s Blessed Voyage, you also get the education that AlMaghrib is famous for.

From prep sessions with your instructor on zoom weeks before your travel, to daily reminders and classes while in the Haramayn, the AlMaghrib umrah experience pairs knowledge with worship at the highest level.

Your Guide...

Shaykh Ammar AlShukry is our master community builder, even on short Umrah trips.

From incessant ice breakers, to 1 AM missions to get food with the group, to regular reflections and classes, to his constant presence in the whatsapp groups even after everyone has returned home…what umrah groups appreciate most, they have a shaykh who is with them *every* step of the way.
