The announcement about Zakir Naik on the Journey of Faith Conference website.

Dr. Zakir Naik Unable to Attend the
3rd Annual Journey of Faith Conference on
July 2nd - 4th 2010

All praises are due to Allah and we seek His assistance and guidance for our success in this world and the next.

The organizers of the 3rd Annual Journey of Faith conference, regret to announce that Dr. Zakir Naik will be unable to attend this year's conference due to the uncertainty of his admission to Canada.

While no official public notice or announcement has been issued regarding the Canadian government's decision to revoke Dr. Naik's visa, we have no choice but to assume, based on various reports, that such a decision has been made and abide by it at this time.

Nonetheless, the attendees and supporters of Journey of Faith will not be left empty handed. The conference will go on as planned and Dr. Zakir Naik will be joining us via live video conferencing along with all the other speakers already scheduled. Join us this Canada Day weekend for a journey towards understanding our Divine Manual: The Holy Qur'an.

The Journey of Faith conference is an invitation to Muslims and peoples of other faiths to learn about Islam. It is not to promote a particular speaker or individual. We are confident that in keeping with our mission statement and vision we will continue to achieve our collective goals.

We seek to promote a healthy and balanced understanding of Islam through the Divine Revelations and Prophetic Traditions.

Our mandate is to endorse and present the proper understanding of religious sources and to avoid human whims and desires which often lead to extremism, intolerance and religious violence.

We look forward to seeing you as we embark on yet another unforgettable journey into the Qur'an--The Divine Manual from July 2 to 4, 2010.

With this, we hope to bring the Muslim community of Toronto to a new spiritual height by bringing them closer to their Lord and foster in them the sense of belonging to the Ummah - by facilitating them a venue to meet and greet other Muslim from various backgrounds.

We sincerely hope that thousands of Muslims from Canada and the US would attend the event in an attempt to renew their forgotten relationship with the Divine Manual.
