IslamiCity > Travel > 2008 Summer Program to Spain
 ISLAMICITY TRAVEL STUDY

PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Muslims growing up and living in Western countries have limited opportunities to gain meaningful insight into their rich heritage and into the lives of fellow Muslims around the world. Some Muslims have not traveled abroad except for performance of Hajj or Umra. Others visit their homeland or that of their parents for brief visits, but do not learn about other regions or peoples outside their particular culture. Educational materials are also inadequate for engendering proper understanding of our diverse ummah. Adding to this, an upbringing in the West often tends to distance young Muslims from identifying in a meaningful way (culturally, socially, intellectually, etc.) with their peers living elsewhere.

In order to engender a greater global connection among Muslims, IslamiCity offers a study abroad program for Muslim adults and college students. The program takes place in Muslim countries or in other countries with an Islamic heritage. The objectives of the program include:

  • Facilitating direct human interaction between participants and fellow Muslims in other parts of the world, in order to engender a sense of Islamic solidarity and commonality.

  • Educating Muslims of all ages living in the West about the rich cultural heritage and history of various Muslim peoples, of which they form a part.

  • Providing Muslims with a unique life experience through travel and learning.

PROGRAM ELIGIBILITY
The tour is open to Muslim adults age 18 and above, and students age 14 and over. Families with children age 5-13 may be accommodated. Participants should be in good physical condition with no serious health issues, as the program is packed with activities, and is somewhat physically demanding (walking and hiking). A completed online registration form with payment of the deposit of $250 per person is required to reserve your spot on the program. Space is limited. Register early.
