Since 2013, we have been at the forefront of the effort to reconnect humanity to the universal Prophetic Teachings that provide light on the path of life. Through events, programs, courses, retreats and publications, we’ve been actively offering a lifeline to thousands of people around the world who are seeking meaning, hope, and purpose and who have been struggling to find it in other contexts.
What we offer to each person who interacts with the Rhoda, whether in-person or online, is three interwoven tracks of development:
Consciousness development (‘Ilm)
Personal development (Tazkiya)
& Community development (Daawah)
which lead, on a global level, to three imperatives of our time:
Shifting paradigms - correcting our diluted perceptions and tainted understanding of sacred concepts;
Forging authentic culture - developing a culture that is robust enough to fulfil the need of the human being for fellowship with others, celebration of important occasions, and the beauty of daily life and doing this against the current of modernity and plasticity by creating art and traditions that anchor Divine Truth in formats that can be easily grasped by the layperson; are in harmony with our environment, our past, and our future; and are practical and easy to pass on to the next generation;
Building the healthy Muslim personality - providing the elements needed for a Muslim personality that is balanced, resilient, and reflective of Prophetic morality, and that is ready to shoulder the individual and communal responsibility to leave a positive legacy for future generations, so that we can fulfil God’s Call to be an honoured community, at the service of all humanity.
