The Muslim Marriage Rejuvenation Retreat is a relationship reboot for couples held prior to the convention in person on Tuesday, December 26, and Wednesday, December 27, 2023.

This is a two-day, hands-on experience where each couple is actively engaged in instruction/brief lectures, couples’ and group exercises, role plays, discussion and problem-solving to rejuvenate their marriage. The entire retreat is an opportunity for the couple to focus on the health and betterment of their marriage. As this is an active learning process for the couple, both husband and wife must attend together. To ensure a more intimate setting, registration is limited to 50 couples. Registration includes two workbooks, one textbook, and all writing and note taking materials.

After December 1, registration will be $150


  • Community leaders, Imams, and therapists are often asked to intervene and help couples in distress find a path to reconciliation.

  • Unfortunately, by the time many couples seek external intervention, it is too late to “salvage” the marriage.

  • Both messy divorces and difficult marriages filled with conflict have detrimental effects on children, extended families and the community-at-large.

  • There is a tremendous need for pro-active, skill-based marriage development programs, rather than last-minute, futile interventions.

  • This retreat is not only beneficial for couples facing marital challenges, but also for those looking to enhance and improve their marriage as well.



The Muslim Marriage Rejuvenation retreat will be lead by Shaykh Suhail Mulla and Ustadhah Lobna Mulla, community leaders who both got trained in one of the most effective and widely-acclaimed, evidence-based marriage reconciliation programs – the Gottman Method. In addition, the trainers have infused this methodology with fundamental marital concepts born out of the Islamic tradition.

Couples who attend will learn practical steps on how to:
  • Increase Empathy and Understanding.

  • Remove Barriers that Lead to Stagnation.

  • Increase Intimacy, Respect, and Affection.

  • Disarm Conflicting Verbal Communication.

Finally, couples will leave the retreat not only with material they can refer back to, but more importantly, with skills they can implement at home in the midst of everyday life.
