28th Summer Dowra 2022

1 July – 10 Aug 2022 | 2 D’hijjah 1443 – 12 Muharram 1444

What is Dowra?

The Dowra is a 40-day annual summer program in Tarim, Hadhramout, Yemen. It was set up to give more people the opportunity to receive a portion of the Prophetic methodology upon which Dar al-Mustafa and Dar al-Zahra were established. Students will have the opportunity to take knowledge from teachers who are the direct descendants of the Messenger of Allah and have the strongest chains of connection to him.

About Us

Dowra SG aims to assist Singaporeans who wish to attend the annual 40-day summer dowra in Tarim, Hadhramout, Yemen.

Official Representative

We are the official representative for Summer Dowrah Dar Al-Mustafa/Dar Az-Zahra. We are not a tour agency. We volunteer to coordinate the Singaporean jemaah so that everyone can inshaAllah travel and arrive home safely as a group. Thus, please understand that we will do the best we can as volunteers, inshaAllah.

Logistics Only

We only assist to coordinate your journey to and from Tarim, i.e. your flights, visas, transit vehicles, transit accommodations etc. Dar al-Mustafa (the dowra organisers) takes over the program once we arrive in Tarim.

Network of Singaporeans

Alhamdulillah we are blessed with a tight network of Singaporeans living in Tarim who have many times assisted dowra participants in the past to get the best of their experience in the land of the awliya’. They are also available as points of contact in case of any emergency.


The main volunteer for Dowra SG was once a student in Tarim. He has headed the journey to Tarim for dowra participants for the past years, alhamdulillah.


Participants' Testemonials

As my friends and I travelled to Oman from Egypt and not from Singapore, we surely needed to keep in contact with the volunteers throughout the process and masyaAllah they were so patient in assisting us. Their khidmah/service was amazing and you wont be left behind alone throughout the dowra insyaAllah, Allah yajzeekum alf alf alf khair!

Our dowra experience would not have been as its best if not for the extensive and generous assistance of our volunteer organisers. We are incredibly appreciative of their service to ensure that the dowra is a smooth journey for us all as much as possible. May Allah reward them infinitely as He wishes and make them a great benefit to the ummah of Rasulullah s.a.w.!
2016 & 2017
The volunteers really gave their all before the trip and during the trip mashaAllah, going above and beyond what they needed to just to ensure that we reach there safely and get to experience as much of the dowra, and of Tareem, as possible. Jazakumullah khayr!

It was such a memorable experience, an experience that I would never forget and I would like to say Alf Jazila Syukr to DowraSG for all the hardwork & service you have done to make this trip to Tareem, Hadhramout for the annual Dowrah a joyous & meaningful one & also for making my dream come true; to come & visit Tareem one day, especially amidst this pandemic. May Allah bless you with success & allow us to come & visit Tareem once again, Aamiin

Felt great. Hope I could visit again. I missed Tarim already.

So many people joined hands together to help us the dowra participants feel the experience as much as we could and it was a beautiful feeling to have been able to go through it alhamdulillah.
