The DC Hidayah Conference is a regional conference primarily dedicated to the Muslims in the DC Metropolitan area. Founded in 2010 by local area youth, the organizers realized that though the DMV Muslim community is among the most vibrant and diverse in America, there was still a lack of an annual gathering of knowledge for the entire Muslim population. The DC Hidayah Conference was started with the aim of bringing Muslim communities together to learn more about the essentials of Islam, promote a sense of unity, and to strengthen the understanding of this beautiful way of life.
The DC Hidayah Conference seeks to obtain the pleasure of Allah (glorified and exalted be He) through working for the establishment of Islam in all spheres of life. Towards this end with the permission of Allah, DC Hidayah will help create a future that finds Muslims in the area working together on large-scale projects that benefit the greater DC area. Included in this vision is a desire to see the Muslim youth develop sincere ties of brotherhood and sisterhood that will lead them to become active da’ees in the community. With the wide array of Muslim organizations, businesses, projects, and service groups in the area, the DC Hidayah Conference also strives to create a platform for Muslims to network and connect with other local Muslims.
