THE MUSLIM CONVENTION 2022 THEME
In today’s world, we understand the immense challenges people face. Poverty, famine, and wars of all sorts. The reality is humanity is not alone. Beyond the hopes of a savior to fill the earth with equity and justice, Imam Mahdi lives amongst us and sustains us in the darkest times – just as the sun radiates even behind the clouds. Learn more about Imam Mahdi, at the Muslim Convention, and see how he is truly our Living Hope.
