Hartford, CT–The ICNA MAS Convention in Hartford was a huge success as usual, this past Memorial Day weekend. 

Present were many very prominent speakers including Imam Siraj Wahhaj, Dr. Ingrrid Mattson, Dr. Sulayman Nyang, Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi, Sh. Omar Suleiman.

The theme of the convention was Qur`an:  Guidance Towards a Just and Balanced Way. 

Highlight events at the convention included a parallel youth conference, a Qur`an recitation competition, programs in ethnic languages, private counseling sessions, a basketball tournament, the presence and opportunity to talk with professionals including lawyers, doctors and authors.  There were exclusive sisters’ events, matrimonial services, interfaith events, and a huge cultural bazaar and exhibition.  There were even career services at the convention. 

We at TMO intend to publish a more detailed report about the event next week.
