Ar-Rehla (The Journey) is a night cycling event that will be held on Saturday, 17th March 2012 . The theme of this event is Finding the Balance. The theme revolves around the fact that there is a strong need for Muslims to find a balance between acquiring goodness in the world and the hereafter. The theme for the event itself is “Keeping Your Balance”, encapsulating the need for balance in one’s journey in life. The concept of balance, while denoting the physical aspect of balancing a bicycle in order to cycle forward, also metaphorically signifies the importance of having equilibrium in all aspects of life so as to lead an existence that is cherished, wholesome and garnered towards the Hereafter and seeking the pleasure and providence of Allah. As for the non-muslims participating, they will learn more about what their fellow muslim friends are working towards to so as to make them aware of this and create understanding in the community. Also, this can serve as a reminder for participants the importance having a balance in all that we do. For example, rewarding oneself by having fun after a hard day work for example.
Date of Event: 17 March to 18 March 2012/ 24 to 25 RabiulAkhir 1433H
Start Time: 1730 hours
End Time: 0800 hours (latest)
