Canterbury Eid Festival 2016 : DeenQuest

Good morning, salaams, and hello,

Our team of DeenGuards are hard at work finalising the last of the DeenQuest (DQ) challenges for you! The DeenGuards are the caretaker of each of the challenges’ categories in the DeenQuest. There will be 3 categories, Body, Mind & Spirit and within each category, there are 5 challenges, each worth a certain number of DeenPoints. The more DeenPoints, the more difficult the challenge. The first team to get to 20* points WINS!!


The Guru will be based at DQ headquarters to challenge you to the Mind and Spirit category and you will go head-to-head with The Warrior at the Arena – how’s your fitness looking? The Spy, well, I can’t tell you much about him/her unfortunately. They’ve been on stealth mode this whole time….

DeenQuest-Adults can get really intense and not really suitable for the young ones. But don’t fret! We have DeenQuest-Kidz for those under 15 years old who wants to participate. The concept will be the same, but the challenges are much milder. Parents, get your camera ready and pompoms out and get ready to cheer on your child’s team!
