The Generation Muslim Experience:


“You are the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah” (Quran 3:110)

Our role and purpose of existence in this life has always been to connect with our Creator and become ambassadors of Islam. Will the Muslim Ummah implode as the condition of the Muslims weakens and the difficulties magnify? Or will it rise through a generation of people who derive inspiration, confidence and strength from the message of their Rabb.

This Spring 2018 Generation Muslim is back for its 8th year in a row and the aim is as strong as ever: “Inspiring Confidence. Reviving Identity”

Generation Muslim is the manifestation of a vision to revive and strengthen the Islamic identity of Muslims living in North America, empower families to connect with their Deen together and in turn inspire our community with a mere glimpse of what we can achieve when we are united with one another.

Are the talks just for youth?
This conference is not just for youth, a casual hang-out, or a temporary Iman boost, instead it discusses solutions to core issues faced by all Muslims, not just youth issues.

Is GenM just about lectures by celebrity sheikhs?
GenM is hosted by a team that has been on the ground with the Muslim Community and front lines of Dawah for close to two decades Alhamdulillah. Our work does not simply entail “lectures” rather we host teachers who have immersed themselves in the Deen and who humbly display every facet of what they teach in their lives.

Why should I attend?
Our lives fly by and we miss the chance to experience meaningful contributions due to busyness, work, and wordly affairs. Why not spend a weekend experiencing how it feels to learn about Islam in the company of our Muslim community. This is an opportunity to feel a strengthened and renewed bond with our own family members, community and our Emaan. Why not feel awakened and ready to establish a greater relationship with Allah (swt) and our deen? 

This Spring 2018, will you rise?

On a personal note, Abdullah takes Islamic opinions from the classical Sunni schools of thought (Ahl ul Sunnah wa Jama’ah).

Abdullah is of Portuguese and French/Colonial North-African descent, and was formerly a Christian until he embraced Islam at 14 after a period of study that started when he was 10 years old. He has continued to study Islam in depth ever since. Abdullah has had a long experience of working in the Muslim community, and his activities involve researching, writing and talking extensively on Islamic revivalism, theology, philosophy, the physical sciences, sociology, psychology, anthropology and political philosophy. Abdullah has delivered talks internationally on the question of the purpose of life, the existence of God, the Miracle of Quran, the superiority of the Shariah as a social and political system, and Islamic Economics. Furthermore, Abdullah has given extensive talks and written articles rationally critiquing Secularism, Liberalism, Secular Democracy and Materialism (Atheism & Secular Humanism).

He has spoken in community centres, universities, colleges and numerous appearances on various programmes on TV channels including the BBC, ITV, BBC Arabic, BBC Radio 4, Al Jazeera, Press TV, Islam Channel and IQRA TV. He also has engaged in a number of debates, with Atheists, Secularists, Agnostics, Liberals and Christians on a variety of topics from theology to political philosophy.

In 2009, he co-founded the public discussion forum: The Muslim Debate Initiative, a forum that promotes open dialogue and critical debate between thinkers, academics, politicians and public speakers of all backgrounds.

About NYM Ink

http://nym.ink

Visit our website for more info!
The Nation of Young Muslims organization was established in 2006 by a group of western Canadian Muslim youth who dared to challenge the status quo of pop culture and offer the Muslim youth of today a better alternative. NYM strives to provide those youth living in the west a lifestyle that is not only attractive and tailored to their time and place, but also a way of life they can be proud of – a way of life whose foundations are firmly based on the teachings of the Qur’an and the life of our beloved Prophet (PBUH). This holistic approach is no small undertaking and, as part of our mandate, we aim to work with and empower local organizations and communities as we continue to move forth with new creative and innovative NYM initiatives.
