There are many organizations, schools, institutes, and places of learning that are teaching and spreading the knowledge of Islam. AlMaghrib Institute is probably one of the most popular ones in America and probably with Canada and UK included as well. This past weekend I attended a special gathering called Ilmfest, which is AlMaghrib’s annual convention in America. This year it was held in Baltimore, Maryland. The word of mouth and hype of the event reached as far as getting a front page story on the Baltimore Sun. They even covered the session called “Reclaiming Islam from the Jihadists” by Shaykh Waleed Basyouni here.
Respect to bro. Rageh Omar for doing this piece. I can’t wait to check out the full length documentary.
Words can’t express the enormous effect that this event has had upon me. In fact I’m actually working on a new project which will be released soon. InshaAllah, I hope they release the videos for public viewing.

“If two Muslims meet each other with their swords, then both the killer and the killed will be in the Hell-fire.”
Someone then said:

He (peace and blessings of God be upon him) replied:
“Because he wanted to kill his companion.”

I pray to God that the Muslims stop fighting each other and start helping each other build their communities and putting families back together. Ameen!
Share this with everyone! This is already my favorite event and it didnt’ even happen yet. It is also my favorite project that I have ever been part of in my entire life so far. I can’t wait for the event, inshaAllah (God willing)! On a side note, this was my first HD video.
Details can be found on the MuslimsUnitedForChange.com website.
This is the best project I have ever seen in a long time. May God make it successful. Ameen!
