I wasn’t there, but mashaAllah!
Update: Live Webcast here!
I have been going to the ICNA conventions during July 4th weekend for the past couple of years. I’ve been to more ICNAs than ISNAs and RIS’s. The best part of ICNA is the parallel Youth Conference organized by Young Muslims. I am proud member and was former active youth coordinator. I love helping out with the YM Security and ushering people to each session. It was my favorite part greeting everyone coming into the lecture hall. I am not sure who replaced me this year as head, but I’m really depressed that I’m not there this weekend.
More info here.
Sadly, I won’t be able to make it this year. May Allah (swt) make it a wonderful and blessed event for all the attendees. Ameen!
This years convention will be held in the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford CT on July 4-6, 2008.
InshaAllah, I’m going to try to come through. Not sure yet.
UPDATE: The toolbar is no longer being supported and updated. It has been discontinued.
This is really cool and something new to the online Muslim ummah: an Islamic toolbar. It began just for the University of Waterloo MSA, but the brother who developed it contacted me and said he is expanding it for all Muslims around the world. It features:
- RSS feed of News, Blogs, etc. all related to Islam and Muslims
- A radio that features Nasheeds (MR Radio is featured on it)
- Google-powered search bar
- 10 Islamic TV channels
