23rd ~ 25th DECEMBER 2016

Welcome to RIS 2016

“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.

Celebrating the 15th Anniversary

The convention will take place at the
Metro Toronto Convention Centre :: North Building

Conditions for Revival

In the name of Allah, the most Gracious, most Merciful.
We hope you all join us this year for a much anticipated RIS convention. A time when we all need to come together as a human race rather than followers of a religion. A time for finding common ground and finding our way forward into the future…
