Yes you heard it right. If you were expecting IlmSummit to be held in Houston, Texas, then think again.

IlmSummit is back and this year in sha Allah will be held in Reading, Berkshire, just outside of London.

The dates are Friday, December 20th, 2013, to Monday, December 30th, 2013. This year IlmSummit will be a full ten-nights in Wokefield Park, just outside of London, (UK).

This year we have an exciting line-up of instructors. Shaykh Waleed Basyouni, Shaykh Abu Eesa, Shaykh Ahsan Hanif & Shaykh Abdul Nasir Jangda (Qalam Institute) will be teaching alongside myself in sha Allah.

Based on popular demand, the venue have allowed quad & triple sharing for a room (i.e. 4/3 people per room). Hopefully, this will allow many more of our students to come. The Quad/Triple rooms are limited and are available on a first come, first served basis.

IlmSummit has always been the highlight of the year for all of us Instructors. I am confident that this year will bring another round of brotherhood and sisterhood, iman-builders, academic foundations and of course, everlasting joyful memories.
