Hundreds of people from different parts of the States attended this event with their friends and families.Along with other Islamic organizations, WNYMuslims also had a booth at the conference to represent unity, diversity and service.


There were many stalls containing Islamic books for both children and adults, perfumes, hijabs and abayas. One of the more popular stalls was the honey stall which contained a variety of honey ranging from health and beauty purposes.

Babysitting was also available for parents who wanted to enjoy the lectures without distraction. The delicious food was provided by Pakistan House which is a popular Pakistani restaurant in Rochester.
