Thousands attend Toronto Muslim convention - Holy Post

  • "Shoeb Khan kneeled in the foyer of Toronto’s downtown convention centre Friday morning as he rifled through a package of flyers and booklets he had just been handed. The 23-year-old Muslim student shoveled papers advertising Muslim clothing and products to the side before grabbing from a plastic bag a thick program guide outlining a weekend-long convention of the Muslim faith in Western Society. Attending Toronto’s Reviving the Islamic Spirit convention for the first time, he said he still wasn’t sure what lectures he would attend, but had decided to attend after hearing a friend talk about it. “I wanted to come and take it in for myself,” said Mr. Khan, saying it opens a dialogue into North America’s often tense relationship with his faith. “It is a really good time for introspection. It makes you think about a lot of things some people want to ignore.”"
