Where Holiday Meets History

Before each day of excursions you will partake in Shaykh Zahir Mahmood’s study sessions. Delivered by a scholar with a passion for history, these structured study sessions have been specially designed for The Andalus Experience and are based upon many years of experience, detailed research and expert involvement. You will leave from each interactive session feeling as though you have witnessed the history of Muslim Spain and fully prepared to understand and appreciate the sites you will visit during your holiday. This structured insight is a unique part of The Andalus Experience and we believe you should not settle for anything less from your Muslim Spain holiday.

Throughout the holiday experience there will be numerous opportunities to explore the beauties of sunny Spain, take part in group sports, enjoy succulent barbecues at the private complex, visit local beaches and much more. Travelling alongside like-minded brothers, this is an ideal holiday for all those who wish to take a fun, yet meaningful, break to Al-Andalus.

Student Testimonials

Alhamdulillah, it was a very great experience. I'm not one for holidays, but this one was for the knowledge, understanding, and experience that it provided. Shaykh Zahir and Shaykh Idrissi are two unique individuals in their own right, and they instructed us throughout the trip in a manner which is suitable for all age groups. The study sessions were jam packed with quality information, as well as important lessons that we can actually bring into our lives. Aside from the historical excursions - which were, of course, extraordinary to begin with - we were taken to beautiful nature reserves in the mountains, as well as for a swim on the beach. If you're looking for a retreat package that prides itself in delivering beneficial knowledge, as well as a relaxing and enjoyable, true holiday experience, then 'The Andalusia Experience' with As-Suffa is the one you want. Don't hesitate and book your space now, because I promise you, you won't want to miss this one!

I have attended the Spain trip a few times now with As Suffa. I would deeply recommend it to everyone. The trip provided me with the in depth history about Islamic Spain. It also gave me the opportunity to spend some great time with Shaikh Zahir and the brothers and to view the great historical monuments.

Abdul Kadir, Dubai

My friend and I joined the As Suffa Andalus 2019 to experience the Islamic history up close under the guidance of Shaykh Zahir Mahmood and Maulana Mohammad Idrissi. It was a wonderful experience overall, being able to learn from the great scholars and meet the brothers from all over the world.
