Productive Muslim Retreat: Treat Your Soul To A Spiritual Retreat at Nirwana Bintan

Traversing the daily grind of everyday life can be very challenging. Balancing work, family and being a productive Muslim is not an easy feat. It can be quite draining on the soul.

That is why it is important to take a spiritual break once in a while and reconnect with your inner self and recharge.

Personal development – may it be spiritual, physical or social – tends to get overlooked due to our busy daily lives. We must remember to take a breather once in a while and that’s where the Productive Muslim Retreat comes in.

It is a program tailored to help you with self-improvement and resetting your life. It will also assist you in defining your goals and living harmoniously, connecting your success in this life and the next!

Be Inspired By Mohammed Faris, The Creator of The Productive Muslim

Mohammed Faris, the author of ‘The Productive Muslim: Where Faith Meets Productivity’, will be leading you throughout the program.
