Testimonials

You could see the signs of Islam at every turn as women strolled by in hijabs and niqabs and the men with beards and prayer caps. Friendly greetings of “assalamu alaikum” were heard from every nook and corner, and the adhan, the call to prayer, rolled over the waves of sound at prayer times. The remembrance of Allah and His deen echoed from every lecture hall and in-between the educational programs, brothers and sisters explored the booths of books, CDs, prayer mats, halal food, and a seeming endless array of other products and services at the bazaar.  (Naureen)

There is a certain high you experience when you are short on sleep, have more caffeine than is healthy in your system, have a terribly long list of things to do, are surrounded by friends in a similar situation, and are at an Islamic conference. If you have not yet had the joy of the experience, you are seriously missing out. (Zainab)

The remembrance of Allah and His deen echoed from every lecture hall and in-between the educational programs, we explored the HUGE bazaar of books, CDs, prayer mats, halal food, and a seeming endless array of other products and services at the bazaar. (Aqeel)

Laughter, heart-warming reunions, rekindled bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood — this convention hosts a Muslim community that is seeking greater knowledge but also the simple joy of connecting with others, and expressing of the pride and joy of being Muslim. People’s lives change at conventions like these. (Sobia)
