What is IlmFest?

ILMFEST is our grand yearly festival of knowledge, an unforgettable event as attested to by thousands of you last year!

For those who might be thinking “it’s just another conference”, think again! This is not your normal run-of-the-mill Islamic gathering – rather, IlmFest is a unique blend of those special ingredients that only AlMaghrib can pull off, whether it’s our relevant cutting-edge keynote lectures, or the live performances with a difference, or the engaging chai-chats, or the probing interviews, or the talent show sessions, or the eclectic mix of stalls, and much more! IlmFest truly has something for everyone!

Share the news with everyone you know because they’ll be talking about it for months afterwards, so just make sure you can say that you were there. IlmFest truly is an incredible experience that will leave all of its attendees yearning for more!
