Journey of Faith
About Journey of Faith
“Our purpose is to expose the general masses to the proper sources and the correct understanding of Islam in order to increase their level of faith, enlighten their hearts, enrich their minds, and ultimately transform them in becoming exemplary Muslims who will follow the footsteps of the Prophet of Mercy.
This will be achieved by organizing and facilitating educational programs and services such as conferences, knowledge intensives and other similar activities thus enabling the masses (Muslims & non-Muslims) to connect with the religious sources as understood by the scholars of Islam.
The Organization would promote the understanding of Islam through the Divine Revelations and the Prophetic Traditions. It would also endorse the proper understanding of religious sources in avoiding following human whims and desires often leading to extremism, intolerance and religious violence.”
“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.”
Other two featured speakers (besides Zakir Naik) have their speeches directed against Jews, Christians and the West.

Shaikh Said Rageah
“Shaikh Said Rageah is a man well-known for grabbing the attention, pulling on your heart strings, making you laugh, and shed your tears all within the first 15 minutes of taking the stage. With a light-hearted and down-to-earth character, he has the uncanny ability to connect with the youth and motivate them to action as he counsels them on various issues.
Born in Somalia, he moved to the US in the late 80s. He has a B.A. in Islamic studies and an M.A. in Shari’ah. He held several posts over the years, including founder of Masjid Huda in Montreal, Masjid Aya in Maryland and Muslim Youth magazine. He lives in Toronto with his family and is the Imam of Abu Huraira Centre and the chairman of Journey of Faith.”
Saeed Rageah’s opening speech at Peace Conference 2009
In his speech, he uses “them” when talking about those who are not Muslim. He deplores those Muslims who embrace the Western life style (but he himself moved from Somalia to the US!). He also asks the audience to proselytize by behaving and living like Muslims, so that non-Muslims would thus embrace Islam.
