    Posted: 21 December 2011 at 11:42pm
TORONTO – Thousands of Muslims are expected to descend on Toronto from across North America this weekend for the largest Muslim gathering in Canada to discuss challenges facing Muslim minorities.

“Based on pre-registration, we are expecting a sold-out convention this year,” an organizer of the “Reviving the Islamic Spirit Convention” told OnIslam.net.

Themed “Control, Chaos or Community: Three Ways, One World, Our Choice”, the convention is organized by a group of young, active Canadian Muslims.

Organizers expect over 15,000 attendees as the convention celebrates its 10th anniversary.

The event, to run from December 23 through December 25, will be held in the heart of downtown Toronto at the Metro Toronto Convention Center, next to the iconic CN Tower.

“’Reviving the Islamic Spirit’ convention is an attempt by the youth to help overcome new challenges of communication and integration," the organizers said on their website.

An impressive galaxy of distinguished scholars and Muslim personalities from around the world will address the convention.

Leading among attendees are prominent scholar Dr Jamal Badawi and Sheikh Abdallah Idris from Canada, Prof. Tariq Ramadan from Switzerland and Dr. John Esposito from the United States...

Oh I so wish I could have gone. I would dream of attending such an event. But it is during Christmas and my family is Christian (and some atheists) so I don't want to leave during Christmas, which is important to them, especially my grandma who is 91 years old and loves the Christmas family gathering.

Maybe next time you could attend another conference which is not in the Christmas holiday In-Shaa-Allah

I'm sure there will be plenty of similar meetings in the spring and summer

Insha'Allah. And I'm glad I was there at Christmas especially for my grandma. She is such an interesting lady. She is pretty private and often doesn't like friends to get too involved in her life. She has friends but doesn't want them always visiting, etc. But family is a different story. She LOVES time with the family. Especially us grandkids and my son, the only great grandchild.
