History and Background:

Muslim Congress was established in 2005 to promote and propagate the true teachings of Islam as guided by the Holy Prophet and his purified progeny, the Ahl al-bait (peace be upon them). In July 2005, the inaugural conference was held in Houston,TX, which was attended by over 400 participants from several cities and states across North America. The distinguished speaker panel consisted of ulama (religious scholars), imams and other professionals from various educational and health related fields. Many attendees appreciated the opportunity to benefit from and interact with the Ulama and provided constructive feedback and support for the organization’s goals and objectives. Topics that were discussed in keynote  presentations and workshops covered the day-to-day challenges faced by Muslims living in the West, and appropriate solutions were identified to address them.A consensus was formed towards the need for a platform where Muslims living in North America could interact with other communities and their leaders to educate and network with one another. Moving forward, with the blessings of the Almighty (swt), the guidance of the Religious leaders and the efforts of dedicated group of volunteers, Muslim Congress will continue to strive to work for a common good and benefit of Muslim communities living in North America. We will seek to provide the Muslim communities with resources and valuable services to promote Islamic knowledge, morality and values without compromising the true Islamic teaching and identity.

In addition to organizing conferences, Muslim Congress offers a variety of services and resources for the material and spiritual benefit of the individuals and communities.

Muslim Congress’ activities are governed by its Constitution and bylaws.
