Youth Tarbiyah Conference
The Youth Tarbiyah Conference is an annual event with free admission which is hosted by the Islamic Foundation of Toronto. It is planned and organized primarily by the youth. The Conference serves to motivate and inspire, both the youth and adults, across Ontario and North America.
Our objective through this Conference is to strive towards educating the youth and masses, amidst the challenges we face in the 21st century, while encouraging them to be active, integral members of the community and adopt leadership roles in mainstream society.
We aim to provide our audience with the tools required to overcome the temptations of society, while remaining steadfast in their faith and morals, all while introducing positive change in the community.The Youth Tarbiyah Conference facilitates this objective by employing a mix of the traditional and modern, in an attempt to attract all segments of the community and to bring the message of Islam through various world-renowned scholars, leaders, presenters and artists to attendees.
The first Youth Tarbiyah Conference was held in the year 2000 under the leadership of Shaykh Mohammed Hussain Patel (former Imam of IFT), the Board of Directors, and the youth of the Islamic Foundation of Toronto. The Conference remains a well-attended event and has inspired many organizations to hold similar conferences and events on various scales.
The Youth Tarbiyah Conference is a service of the Da'wah Department of the Islamic Foundation of Toronto (IFT).
