Religious NGO Jamiyyathulsalaf is offering youth the opportunity of a two day ‘Hijra’ to distance themselves from sin and form closer relations with religion.
‘Hijra’, a religious camping retreat on the island of Thinadhoo in Vaavu Atoll from November 18-20 where, for the price of Rf300 (US$32), participants can ‘move away from sin’.
Salaf said priority will be given to those who are at ‘beginner’s level’ in their religious education and, or, are experiencing doubts about their belief.
Successful applicants will be instructed in religious teachings by scholar Skeikh Adam Shameem Ibrahim and will also be encouraged to form close friendships and foster a spirit of brotherhood.
‘’As the camp will be held for two days, having fun and playing different games will also be a part of it”. The fun and games will be organised according to religious teachings, Salaf said.
Participants will also have the opportunity to take part in some serious religious education through lessons and sermons.
“Moving away from sin”, is the slogan of the camp. Hijra refers to the migration of Prophet Mohamed from Mecca to Medina in 622 CE to escape persecution and found the first Islamic state.

the start of terror camps in maldives and still teh gov. will say adhaalath and salaf a non terror loving but extremists. lol
It is interesting to note that for some anything to do with Islam must necessarily involve terror!
Agree with Neut, even though I hate Salaf!
Well said Neut. I would like to invite those who want to know what Islam is really about to read and do their own research rather than just parrot out hateful slogans put out by promoters of islamophobia. A good place to start is here:
very bad idea, under the pretense of fun, the brain washing begins,
The authorities should carefully monitor these "camps"
and all you people saying this is only a religious thing, just think about it for a good second! blind fools, letting the country rot from the inside
y does south park come to mind o_O
are women allowed to participate?
Extremist camps! A fool-proof plan to take young minds 'away from sin' and straight into the holy cause of jihad.
Hay festival mullah style...
it is exactly those those hateful rhetoric that creates anti-social elements in society. fundamentalism is not synonymous with extremism. live and and let live citizens...
Salaf- do you trade stocks in the Stockexchange?. i'd like to be a shareholder of this "salaf interisland corporation".
i see great propects for this business. there are many guillible people who will buy your products just like any other product out there in this free market.:)
Islam will prevail. dont like it? die in your rage
see what they says abt us..
we must consider this..
That's gonna be a brainwash camp, and nothing else. Very clear. These kids will be returning, very proud to have participated, and start calling less-serious believers as kafirs. Stupid enough if parents send them there.
wat ever. this is just another game to get a few more youth to be brain washed and sent to jihad or rather the next steps maybe start jihad on our soil than in Pakistan or Afghanistan. government should be foolish to even allow this kind of activities by well known extremist organisation like salaf.
thumbulhilee meehun dhathureh campeh gosgen ves nuveytha ei emeehunge amilla kamehnnu
Praise be to Lord of the universe (worlds, and all that is within and out).
For all those who hate this Islamic effort! May Allah bless you with Truth and understanding.
And for the organizers of this. May Allah give you guidance to conduct this in the way Allah wills. For the benefit of this society and humanity.
Allah (Almighty GOD, The Creator, Evolver, Fashioner, The Originator of all Creations) is One and Unique, Allah is absolute and eternal (All created things depends on Allah but Allah doesn't need anything), Allah begets not nor is begotten (There's no beginning or end, Allah is uncreated), And there is nothing like Allah that we can picture in our mind.(No human knowledge or science (science also means knowledge of the nature,etc) or understanding can ever comprehend the greatness of Allah fully, we can only try because we are a creation of Allah with a program of "freewill & ability to make choice", We are one of the best of Allah's 'technology')
May Allah forgive us all for our sins and grant us eternal bliss. May Allah help us understand the Truth and make us closer together.
In Almighty Allah We Trust.
This will surely end in Salaf exaggerating the number of participants.
How much did they pay Minivan to advertise this? =P
Bad idea. What needs to be done is to teach tolerance to all.
There are other people of many religions coexisting with us in the world. And they are not stupid nor will they all go to hell.
Tolerance. Humanity. Acceptance. Treating others with respect.
And not idiotic isolation, hatred, radicalism.
This will definitely lead to terror camps... Like Booze and Drugs leads to crimes...
They charge you 300 to remove your sins? I think these kids can do the same thing for free by just going to a mosque and asking for forgiveness.
What does Salaf think they are? God?!
Well, with certainty, the people who pay this 300 and come out of this are going to be hate machines, bent on going on a jihad which doesn't even exist.
Guys forget the camp, don't get your panties in a bunch over this... I'm more concerned on what exactly they mean by 'We'll also be playing games...??' As far as I know, the world knows what happens to these bonding or bondage or whatever brothers after these games they play in religious camps, and I mean all religions!
why are all the secularists itchin as if ants got in their panties jus cos people want to feel closer to their religon?? Just mind your own bizness.. no ones forcing you to go..
not a bad idea IF this was not a wahhabi theocracy and everyone had the freedom to make these 'hijra's. and IF the state (free from wahhabi or any other cult influence) could watch em closely.
@gman, i think it is time we introduce free and opensource islam in maldives. before this multinational wahhabi corporations scam and exploit the whole nation.

Salaf should select participants from among drug addicts who quite openly engages in haraam activities. If their objective is to help reduce crime rate and Islamize the society they should not target those already Islamaized.
If this Hijra is to replicate Prophet's Hijra, then only followers of Wahhabees should join
If Habis are allowed to promote their "brand" those with other religious thinking should also have the freedom to conduct such camps! Maldives is going towards becoming the country of the "bearded!".
some people just cant stand islam taking steps forward in maldives..unfortunate news for those people is, this will continue.
its also funny to say islamic education is brain washing but other books which you read, or movies you see are not brain washing? u dont know the meaning of brainwahsing.
I know nothing but what im taught is not islam...it encourages you to ask questions and think.
people say this salaf cant tolerate.. looking at the comments its clear who can't
The only thing that could be worse than these 'camps' are the Nazi concentration camps during the world war 2.
Islamic education is fine, but the only people who would hold this 'camp' would be the extremists. By extremists I mean those who forsake vaccines, school for their children,..and those who make 4 year old girls wear moonu buruga, those who marry their under age daughters to a 50 year old man.
Here in the maldives unlike the afghan-extremists who are motivated to create terror, the wahhaabees main motivation and selling point is polygamy. Hence even women who are from these closed circles sincerely believe that their way to heaven is been a slave to their husbands.
Salaf should be taken seriously as you would take Umar Naseer.
Salaf has plans to make this event the festival of the century...
There's going to be a lot of praying and brainwashing and sharing and praising each other for the knowledge people have of Islam.
The boys will be taught to dance like the dancing boys of Afghan. The older men will sit and admire the younger boys.
Check here for more information on this http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-south-asia-11217772
The most important part will be a model of Sheikh Ilyas's heaven. I heard that some virgins will be brought from nearby islands but they will be dressed in full black Hijab. The idea is to give a feel of the actual heaven so that they will get the boys thinking about the holy jihad.
islam is NOT salaf and Salaf is NOT islam. Salaf does follow extremist thoghts and principles. the government shuld put a stop to this
all cult activities should be banned in Maldives
To day a camp to remove sins tomorrow a camp to teach how to put "terror in the hearts of men". At the rate radicalism is creeping into this country in another 5 years all resorts will be in danger. The country will move 20 years into the past and then welcome another Somalia or Afghanistan.
keep it up your works salaf and May Allah Bless it.
People who do not have knowledge of Islam please keep your mouth shut and try to learn it. If you people think you know everything please please teach your youth. What Islam Is? From where you people are learning about Islam? May in BBC or CNN or some other non-Islamic channel. So you people think these channel send most perfect fatwa in Islam. Do not you? I have two question to ask you people. Do you people believe (1)Quran is a revelation of Allah to prophet Mohammad and (2)Sunnah of prophet teaches us practically what we have to do?
Quran Surah 9,Verse 32 They (the disbelievers, the Jews and the Christians) want to extinguish Allah's Light (with which Muhammad SAW has been sent - Islamic Monotheism) with their mouths, but Allah will not allow except that His Light should be perfected even though the Kafirun (disbelievers) hate (it).
This is more bullshit! The whole culture has become sick, child molestors wanting 12 year old girls to wear the full face buruga so that they can abuse the poor kids and no one can see. I HATE what has become to our country and I loathe these people using religion to push their perverted propaganda. HATE you with your long beards and your full face buruqas! Islam, what it has become today sucks and I want no part of it.
how can u generalize all the sunni's that they are child molesters and all of them force their young kids to wear face veil? that is a wrong accusation
If anyone who hates a discription of the Rasoolullah..he must be hating him too..dont you know that Prophet of Allah had a full beard..My advice is when someone is trying to follow Sunnah dnt call them Wahhabi...dnt u know that you are playing with a name of Allah...Wahhab...Read Quran and Sunnah then u will be guided by the will of Allah...
@heskiyaafagiligili ,,it turned out to be da opposite man,better luck next time,your comments gave curiousity to all of em and joinedda hijra.....thanks to all...parrots
