“Reviving the Islamic Spirit” convention is an attempt by the young Muslims in the West to help overcome new challenges of communication and integration.  The convention aims to promote stronger ties within North American society through reviving the Islamic tradition of education, tolerance and introspection across cultural lines through points of commonality and respect.  Furthermore, the convention will be a celebration of our North American identity and Islamic faith.  To help attain these ideals, the convention will feature a wide range of voices from various parts of the world

Around 20,000 people are expected to attend the Reviving the Islamic Spirit conference at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The event runs from Dec. 25 to 27, and will feature speakers that include scholars, imams and authors.

The event also features a  “grand bazaar,”
