Our 2013 Year in Review!

WNYMuslims serves the Western New York community by creating awareness, encouraging diversity, and providing service. We empower Muslims and non-Muslims alike with the means to voice, connect, and contribute through creative media. In the past year, 2013, we were able to hold a few great events, serve our community, create a ton of videos, collaborate with amazing organizations and community members, grow our weekly e-newsletter to the community, and more.  So here's a small glimpse of what we did this year...See what we did HERE!

'Reviving the Islamic Spirit' 2013

 WNYMuslims had a chance to be a part of this year's 'Reviving the Islamic Spirit' convention in Toronto, Canada! With a special Media pass, we sent our photographer Mustafa Hussain out to capture the 3-day-long event! The convention welcomed renowned intellectual and Islamic speakers such as Hamza Yousef, Professor Tariq Ramadan, Imam Omar Suleiman, and much more, leaving the event as spiritual as it was exciting.

Look back for updates, but for now enjoy the 'RIS' album featuring all of the wonderful PICTURES of the event HERE!
