Our mission

Connecting to our Creator

The human soul is one of the most wondrous things that God created and one of the greatest gifts given to man. Like the body, it requires care and nurture if it is to remain healthy.

Reviving Souls is an initiative which aims to bring about revival through the realisation of Islam, Iman and Ihsan. This revival begins internally with the soul and encompasses every aspect of the human experience. It is manifested in the Prophetic Way of knowledge, devotion and service.

Reviving Souls is based in Edinburgh, Scotland but we welcome with open arms anyone from any background in any corner of the world.
