21st Annual QSS Convention Update


To Allah is the praise! I just got word that Shaikh Muhammad al-Maghrâwî got his visa approved today and will be attending the convention, by Allah’s will. Shaikh Abū Hâtim Usâmah al-Qūsî got his visa yesterday, and Shaikh Hishâm al-‘Ârif got his visa some time before that.

So with that, all the main speakers should be in town by this Friday, August 31, 2007—with Allah’s permission. All we are waiting for now, is to hear from brother Abu Usamah Atthahabi.

For brothers travelling to Toronto for the convention, I’m not sure if QSS has made arrangements with any of the local hotels, but if you would like to go ahead and make your own arrangements, here are a list of the hotels close by:


QSS 21st Annual Convention: Moderation: Between Two Extremes

Date: Labour Day Weekend (August 31-September 3, 2007) @ Islamic Foundation of Toronto (a.k.a. Nugget Mosque)

Speakers: Shaikhs Abū Hâtim Usâmah al-Qūsî, Hishâm bin Fahmî al-‘Ârif, Muhammad al-Maghrâwî, brother Abu Usamah Atthahabi.

[Update no. 1]: Unfortunately, Shaikh Hishâm will be unable to attend due to certain circumstances.

[Update no. 2]: Brother Abu Usamah Atthahabi will be unable to attend due to visa problems. Shaikhs Abū Hâtim al-Qūsî has already arrived and will be giving the Friday sermon at Masjid Qur’an & Sunnah (QSSC), and Muhammad al-Maghrâwî is en route from Montreal and should be arriving sometime today (Friday), if Allah wills.

For more information & (tentative) event schedule, visit the QSS Canada website.
