These Zoom prayer retreats began in 2022 when two community members felt we needed more opportunities to pray together. Whether it’s for a global event, a community event, or a personal situation, the community appreciates the chance to come together in prayer. Co-sponsored by Unity Peace Prayer, these events usually take place two Thursdays a month, from about 10:00 am – 4:00 pm eastern time. The duration can vary depending upon how many volunteers are able to offer their time.
Each prayer retreat has a them, cased upon what’s happening in the world and within ourselves. In general, the prayer retreat will begin with an introduction by the host, followed by prayers, recitations, readings, and dhikr led by different community members. Featured during almost all of these retreats is a dhikr on Zoom with Fawzia, al-Rawi, renowned author and the daughter-in-law of Sidi Muhammad, qadassallahu sirrahu. At the end of our time together the host will close the call, giving thanks and expressing gratitude for all that was given.
