“Reviving the Islamic Spirit” (RIS) convention is an attempt by the youth to help overcome new challenges of communication and integration. The convention aims to promote stronger ties within the North American Society through reviving the Islamic tradition of education, tolerance and introspection, and across cultural lines through points of commonality and respect.
Furthermore, the convention will be a celebration of our identity and Islamic faith. To help attain these ideals, the convention will feature a wide range of voices from various parts of the world.
This convention is not organized by any organization and does not engage in any ideological discourse. It showcases Islamic leadership from across the globe sharing a common platform before the widest cross section of our community. This program hopes to empower the youth across North America and inspire a true revival.
The RIS is mainly three full days program in Metro Toronto Convention Center from Dec 27, 2013 – Dec 29, 2013 featured by very well-known speakers as Dr. Jamal Badawi, Prof. Tariq Ramadan, Imam Zaid Shakir, Shaykh Hamza Yusuf… Etc. Muslim singers and comedians will be presenting in the convention as well as Bazaar exhibition.

Another feature of RIS is The Knowledge Retreat, which is an annual program held around the RIS Convention to give seekers of knowledge an opportunity to study traditional Islamic sciences, in contemporary context, with some of the leading scholars of our time. Knowledge is the greatest gift a believer can share and it is through such gatherings that students are introduced to the depth and breadth of Islamic scholarship. Rarely do Muslims living in the west get such opportunities and hence RIS KR strives to provide a conducive environment for students to purse their quest for knowledge and enlightenment by studying the traditional sciences preserved through a chain of transmission handed to us through great scholars of the past.
