moving together into the future...
It is that time of the year when ICNA & MAS workers invite Muslims living in North America to convene at a central location and ponder upon the critical issues facing the Muslims in particular and Humanity in general.

WhyIslam Dawah Arena
ICNA-MAS Convention will feature an open air WhyIslam Dawah Arena at Liberty Bell Park in Philadelphia on July 4th and 5th. A reading of "Bill of Rights" will be conducted. Plan to attend the convention and be part of the history.

You can volunteer for this activity. Email us at info@whyislam.org 

This is the meeting where Islamic workers get their ammunition for another year to face the challenges of Dawah work in North America.

This is the place where Young Muslims come together to share their experiences of one whole year and learn some more tools to face the challenges of the life in North America.

This is  the occasion when Muslim sisters join each others hands once again to strengthen their bond of Islamic sisterhood and make sure not to give in to the so called 'glamorous' and 'independent' life of North America.

This is the place where Muslim brothers/sisters bring their resources together to share the pains and sufferings of Muslim Ummah.
