Join us on a unique experience with Mainstay, where every Ziyara in Iraq is an unparalleled experience and another opportunity to further connect with the Imams (a). Whether you’re a first-time pilgrim or an experienced traveler, our spiritual retreat to Najaf, Karbala, Kadhimiya, and Samarra in Iraq is one that you won’t want to miss.

At Mainstay, our commitment goes beyond merely facilitating your visit; we aspire for every participant to depart not only spiritually enriched but also armed with a deeper comprehension of their faith. Our English-guided tours and comprehensive programming ensure that individuals from diverse backgrounds can engage with the pilgrimage in a language they comprehend best, fostering a greater connection with the most revered figures of our faith.

During your pilgrimage with Mainstay, expect enriching group recitations that elevate your spiritual experience. Each day is thoughtfully planned to maximize your engagement with the sacred sites and to foster a profound connection with your faith. Additionally, participants may have the opportunity to meet with an esteemed scholar from the Islamic Seminary of Najaf. This potential meeting adds an invaluable dimension to your pilgrimage, providing insights and wisdom from the intellectual center of the Shia Muslim.

In addition to experiencing the spiritual significance and history of the Shrine Cities, our retreat offers a chance for personal reflection, communal worship, and spiritual growth. For families, we have a specially curated program for children aged 5-12. This program includes educational activities designed to introduce young participants to the teachings and stories in an engaging and age-appropriate manner. Join Mainstay on this sacred journey, where every step has meaning, and every moment is an opportunity to connect with the Imams of Ahlulbayt (a).
