June 18th was certainty a day to remember for those that attended the itkaf spiritual retreat. After spending the first portion of the night praying Tarawih, the girls spent the night in the Masjid participating in Islamic based activities. One of these activities involved decorating a cardboard rectangle with our favorite of Allah's 99 names, using a wide variety of markers, ribbon, and other art materials to create a beautiful sign. The boys had similar activities; listening to lectures with brother Irfan and brother Alim. The night drew to a close after eating Suhoor; which consisted of freshly made eggs and pancakes. We all went home feeling full, content, and rejuvenated after a night of worship alongside our friends.
