RISALE ACADEMY BOOK READING RETREAT REGISTRATION
“4 Books in 4 Seasons” Retreat 1

Risale Academy Presents

2021 Winter Reading Camp 1
on “The Words” by Said Nursi

2-Day Virtual Retreat
December 18-19, 2021

Respect Graduate School is pleased to present its first effort, by the Risale Academy, to facilitate a virtual retreat on the works of Bediuzzaman Said Nursi. Titled “Four Books in Four Seasons” this retreat is an attempt to introduce the four main books authored by Said Nursi: a 20th Century tafseer scholar who bore witness to transitions of modernity and Islam and then advanced a vital commentary bridging our understanding and rooting Muslims in this modern era.

The designated readings for this retreat are from the four core books of Nursi’s Risale-i Nur, or Epistles of Light, The Words, The Letters, The Flashes and The Rays. During this winter season we will read sections from The Words.

● All are welcome, however, due to the rigor of the camp we encourage those in university and beyond to attend.
● The language of instruction will be in English, and all texts will be read from English translation.
● Each session will be read out loud by an English speaker, in which all students are expected to follow the text. Following this, a different scholar of the Risale-i Nur will open up the topic further.
● The retreat will be colored with Kahoot Challenges, Jeopardy and Poll Everywhere sessions.
