Whether it is your first time or tenth, experiencing Ziyara with Mainstay is one of a kind. Join us for a spiritual retreat in Iraq — the Cradle of Civilization and the Home of the Shrine Cities: Najaf, Karbala, Kadhimiya and Samarra.
The Najaf Retreat is an initiative that was first started in 2016 by the Mainstay Foundation. It gives an opportunity for young leaders in our communities to be exposed to the rich Islamic heritage in Iraq by visiting the Holy Shrines and connecting with scholars in the Islamic Seminary in Najaf.
The annual Muharram program is near and dear to the heart of the community. It started in 2015 and with the Never Forget Campaign, a 10-day interactive presentation that attracted over a thousand attendees on a nightly basis – the vast majority being youth ages 13 to 19.
