The Revival is a free quarterly British magazine aimed at young Muslims, covering issues faced by Muslim youth.

The newsletter expanded rapidly through voluntary distribution, initially to Manchester, then the North West, and finally the whole UK.

From 2003 until 2005 The Revival appeared solely in an online format. In May 2005, The Revival was relaunched as a national magazine.

The magazine had a circulation of approximately 15,000 in 2006.
