The Ilmsummit video blog is LIVE!

The 7th Ilmsummit, the biggest in our history, has got off to an amazing start by the mercy and grace of Allah ‘azza wa jall.

We are delighted to announce that for the first time, we will be having a LIVE BLOG sharing gems, fawa’id and other interesting moments along with photos and video direct from Reading, UK. It will be updated multiple times a day and it can be followed HERE on our Facebook page, as well as our Twitter feed, so make sure you don’t miss out.

In another great addition, brother Boonaa Mohammed is recording a vlog – a daily video blog – live from Ilmsummit sharing his own unique perspective as a student coming from abroad, which has already been getting excellent feedback due to it showing the “other” side to the realities behind such a gathering, the students and in particular, the teachers.

Here’s the first episode below, and keep up to date on our Facebook and Twitter pages with a new posting every day, which we will upload to our website here as well:

Ilmsummit SOLD OUT. Again!

If you’re going to get sold out as it was last week before we organised extra spaces, then the only way to go one better is to sell out again!

By the grace of Allah, we have completed our (re-opened) intake for Ilmsummit 2014 and this is now the end of registration for this year. We apologise to anyone on the waiting list or anyone else who missed out this time, and we will try our best to increase spaces for next time in sha Allah.

The good news is that you can keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter and Blog pages for lots of gems, snippets and clips over the next ten days!

Also, stay tuned for an exciting announcement very soon after Ilmsummit 2014. No promises but we’re looking into it now…

We ask Allah ‘azza wa jall to bless our retreat, to accept this effort from all the students and organisers, and to increase all the attendees in beneficial knowledge, ameen!
