The Muslim Convention’s aim is to provide a networking platform for Shia Muslims in order to promote their spiritual, educational, social and economic well-being.


Welcome to the annual Muslim Convention – a haven of enlightenment and unity. In a world grappling with challenges, this year’s theme, “Lady Zainab: The Epitome of Strength“, takes centre stage. As we delve into the remarkable resilience of Lady Zainab, we are reminded of the unwavering hope and fortitude she embodied.

This year, our convention also shines a light on the theme of family, underscoring the vital role it plays in nurturing strength and faith. Join us to explore these themes, draw inspiration, and strengthen your faith within a community united by shared beliefs. Together, we foster hope and inner strength, shaping a brighter tomorrow through the lessons of Lady Zainab and the power of family bonds. The Muslim Convention: where faith magnifies unity and inspires a brighter future.
