"Absolutely incredible! By far the best experience I've had in doing any sort of Islamic course. To live onsite for 10 days with the shuyukh and the students, learning about the deen is a feeling I can't put into words. Let's just say that I never wanted it to end! Can guarantee you that it's the best financial/time sacrifice I could've made."

− Warda Hamza, Ilmsummit 2013 student

"I don't know if words can do justice to the experience we have had at Ilm summit. It's like trying to describe Hajj and Umrah, we start off trying to describe the greatness of it to others but then you just say "you know, you just have to go"; the essence is indescribable."

− Amina Shaikh, Ilmsummit 2013 student

"I just want to say thank you to everyone for making me feel so welcome during IlmSummit. The past ten days have been from the best I've ever lived. Thank you to the organizers for doing a great job."

− Reem Sheikh, Ilmsummit 2013 student
