Frequently Asked Questions

Please read the FAQs before submitting any queries, and/or your application

A: Large portion of the cost for the Summer Dowrah (such as accommodation) is highly subsidised by DM/DZ.

There are some participants who may be unable to commit to the full duration of the Summer Dowrah but still hopes to benefit from seeking knowledge in the holy land of Tareem. Therefore, DowraSG intends to facilitate this request by organising the Study Rehlah. Unfortunately there is no subsidy available for this option and thus costs are higher.

A: Study Rehlah participants will be allowed to attend classes in DM/DZ meant for the Public.

A: The main itinerary and intention for both programmes are planned for the purpose of heading to Tareem, Hadramawt, Yemen. Especially in view of the current Covid-19 pandemic situation around the world and for your personal safety, we will not be organising any ziyarah or spending time in Cairo, Egypt.

A: No, you are not allowed to extend your stay. If you have other plans, please inform and discuss with DowraSG on your plans and arrangements prior to registering for either programme.

A. The climate in Tareem is mostly very hot and dry. Temperatures can reach up to 50 degree celsius. Regardless, we will attempt our best in facilitating to make things as comfortable as possible for all.

Based on past experiences over the years, most of the participants were able to adapt to the climate. 

Having said that, we would still advise you to seek medical advice prior to registering for either programme if you feel you may experience any issue, especially medically-related, with such climate conditions. 

A: The Summer Dowrah is relatively intensive and most of the participants’ time will be occupied with classes, revision trips, meetings with different scholars and a standard fixed routine.

Once again, the climate conditions is very hot and may be difficult to bear, which could attribute to further hardship in coping with the programme requirements. 

Fortunately, we are happy to note that past participants were all able to rise to the challenge and reaped the fruits of their efforts, alhamdulillah. 

A: Based on past experiences and observations, several participants (especially the mature ones) have given feedback that the Summer Dowrah’s accommodation arrangements, living conditions, and the intensity of the course could be rather uncomfortable and challenging respectively. For instance, participants sleep on thin mattresses on the floor, share rooms with up to 10 or 12 other participants, share a common toilet and classes are held with participants having to sit on the floor. The variety of food provided is also limited as compared to what you may be accustomed to.

Having said that, such simplicity in daily living and intense commitment required in learning are precisely the factors which give you the opportunity to experience what the past scholars had gone through in seeking knowledge.

A: Participants are welcomed to bring their child(ren) along to the classes. Unfortunately, there are neither childcare nor baby-sitting services/ facilities available. You will need to look after your child(ren) on your own during the classes or make your own childcare arrangements to attend the classes.  

A: Internet is available, but the connections can be irregular and slow at times. The best way to keep in touch with your family would be via text messages (SMS) from your mobile phone.

We would advise you to come psychologically prepared to experience a different way of life in Tareem and to strengthen your spiritual connection with Allah swt.

Where really necessary or in times of emergency, we will do our best to facilitate access to the Internet.
