“Reviving the Islamic Spirit” (RIS) convention first took place in 2003 and has since then become the biggest such event in North America. The 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 boasts of celebrating “our North American identity and Islamic faith.”
To help attain these ideals, the convention features a wide range of voices from various parts of the world. With scholars and mind-moving speakers from across the world, RIS promotes an enriching experience wherever you are on your life journey. The convention also featured events for children, food items, islamic arts, culture and matrimonial services.
