About ONE UMMAH Conference:
The One Ummah Conference is a yearly event established in 2009 and organized by the Islamic Information Society of Calgary (IISC) as part of its ongoing education and awareness programs.
The foundation of the conference was motivated by the Ayah “...God does not change the condition of a people until they change what is within themselves...” (Quran 13:11). This inspired the slogan of the conference: “Change Yourself. Change the World.” We believe that each one of us has the power to change the world by first changing ourselves. This will lead to a change in our family, community, and ultimately Ummah.
Today, with over 1000 attendees and growing, we are proud to say that One Ummah is the largest and most anticipated Islamic event in Western Canada. The One Ummah Conference brings our Muslim community together for a full day of learning and community-building by attracting a diverse crowd, hosting world-renowned Islamic scholars and speakers, and offering a unique, fun marketplace.
As we grow and continue this most anticipated event, we recognize the need and love that our community has for such an event. As such, our team aims to continuously promote an inclusive space with harmony and authentic Islamic traditions, where we can come together annually and enjoy our wonderfully diverse community and our shared Islamic faith.
By promoting authentic Islamic traditions and knowledge, we hope to continue to bring unity and harmony for all ages and inspire the next generation of leaders who will bring positive change to our diverse community.
