About Us


Halima Muslima Wellbeing and Retreats, originally called Halima Retreats, was originally started in 2015 with the intention of providing spiritual retreats for ladies and children with the blessings and guidance of Sheikh Hisham Kabbani (q) and since then has grown to include online courses and a counselling service as well as a new project with Muslim reverts from prison.

Halima Muslima is a CIC or Community Interest Company, in other words a non-profit organisation. Any money made is put back into the company and used to fund those who we hope to serve inshAllah. Please keep us in your prayers. All success is from Allah.
