Riyaadah 2009

This year's Riyaadah is just a month away! Visit the website to plan your trip to Philly or check for details about vending, competing, etc. For those who are not aware, the Riyaadah is an annual get-together for Muslims around the country and beyond, originally conceived of and organized by none other than our hero Imam Jamil.

What is the Riyaadah?
To sum it up, it's like one big Muslim family reunion. Over the years, it's been held in different locations across the country (this year in Philly). There are several events and activities. For the athletes in our Ummah, there are all kinds of individual competitions and group sports; for those seeking knowledge and understanding, there are various lectures, seminars, and workshops on bringing the teachings of Islam into our lives. For those who want to see what's new on the cultural scene, there are programs to display the creative abilities we have in our Ummah. And of course, for those of you who are looking for new khimars, shirts, books, etc., there are plenty of vendors. Bring your whole family and friends and experience it firsthand!
