Welcome to RIS Malaysia

The “Reviving the Islamic Spirit” (RIS) convention has its origins as a gathering place for Muslims in the West to overcome contemporary challenges of communication and integration. After fifteen years as a site for joint spiritual introspection in a society where Muslims are the minority, RIS will make its debut appearance in Kuala Lumpur, in a society with a history of multi-faith existence amidst Muslims forming the numerical majority. The location has changed, but the aim of reviving the Islamic tradition of education, tolerance and introspection through points of commonality and respect, remains. Indeed, the RIS precepts of compassion, spirituality and honest sharing are desperately needed across the confines of geography. In Kuala Lumpur, RIS retains its deeply embraced feature as a place where a wide range of voices from across the world come together. With the theme “1400 Years of Clarity: Restoring Faith in the Modern Age,” RIS in Kuala Lumpur welcomes all who seek to revive the spirit and elevate their awareness of what it means to be a seeker of knowledge and an active, dynamic member of society.
