The conference was free to attend and featured speakers: Mufti Abdur Rahman ibn Yusuf, Shaykh Ahmed Ali, Shaykh Shoaib Desai, Shaykh Sulaiman Moola, Shaykh Husain Abdul Sattar & Shaykh Sulaiman M. Ravat. The event had no fancy seating arrangement all were expected to sit on the floor and the sisters’ area was to the back behind a partition. The aim of the conference was to have a more traditional feel.
The Shaykhs provided moving lectures as expected and were upfront and to the point with their lectures. They did not disappoint the crowd. There were slight changes in the program guide as the weekend progressed. And the program timings did end up getting pushed back. Though, I don’t believe anyone minded.
The atmosphere was welcoming and the volunteers were courteous. And this year if you weren’t able to attend in person a live audio stream was available over the web. The audio had a slight buzz and would cut in and out but, the feature did help a lot of people listen in.
