Seizing the Moment:

Standing Firm on the Path of Truth

With Palestine at the forefront of our hearts and mind,
MAC Convention 2024 will challenge you to think critically about some of the most important issues of our time; you will be inspired to imagine and create in ways that change the realities around you; and you will take back  tools that will transform various spheres of your life, insha'Allah.  This is a conference unlike any other. This is a program where we as a Muslim Canadian community will gather to deconstruct, reinvigorate, reactivate, and redefine where we are going to drive the narrative of Islam and Muslims in Canada and across our ummah, in the coming phase, insha'Allah.  The convention's main program will provide invigorating sessions and dynamic conversations around strength, justice, action and hope on the journey to stand firm in the path of truth. 

The MAC Convention 2024 theme is centered around the verse:

يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓا۟ إِن تَنصُرُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ يَنصُرْكُمْ وَيُثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَكُمْ

O believers! If you stand up for (the cause of) Allah, He will help you and make your steps firm.

Quran translation, Surah Muhammad, verse 7

The convention program aims to delve deeper into the theme - collectively as Canadian Muslims through all spheres of life, by looking at 3 distinct dimensions:

Firmness of Faith

How to develop, internalize and embody a God-centered worldview that will lead to building strength & resilience, to be able to stand firm for the cause of Allah SWT.

The Path of Truth

The deep understanding and certainty that Allah SWT has provided us with a complete concept of life based on certain principles and values, and that Islam presents a complete solution to humanity in all facets of life.

Standing Firm

Committing to Individual and Collective Urgency, Responsibility & Action:

a sense of urgency and responsibility of applying Islam fully and taking action in our individual lives, our communities, and the ummah.
