InshaAllah, Imam Suhaib Webb will be speaking at Ilmfest 2009 in Baltimore this weekend. Ilmfest is a two day conference organized by AlMaghrib Institute. This year it will be at the Baltimore convention center on Saturday October 2 to Sunday October 3, 2009. Click here for more information and be sure to register.
It’s $30 if you pay online. If you didn’t pay before, then it’s $40 at the door.
The flyer says that 50,000 are anticipated to come. I’d love to know how they came up with that number. If 50,000 show up it’ll make history for sure.
Sad fact is, the organizers of this should have planned with the MD-DC-VA area Islamic Centers and Masajid (Mosques) to not have Jummah and send everyone to the Capital hill and only have one for those who can’t make it. I know several local communities in the area that have 2-3 Jummah times and they will have it tomorrow.
Anyways, inshaAllah Allah will make it a success. Ameen!
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.
Sh. Abdullah Hakim Quick from South Africa made a surprise appearance and he made the closing dua, but before he did, they had all the scholars and speakers come up on stage. I recorded it:
There is a lump of flesh in the body, the nature of which is that when it is sound, the entire body is sound, and when it is corrupt, the entire body is corrupt. It is the heart. (Related in Bukhari and Muslim)
Feeling rundown or agitated? Does your life ever feel empty, even though it seems like you have a million things to do? Does the world seem like an ongoing series of difficulties, corruption and tribulation, without a way out?
