10th Anniversary RIS.....who's all coming?

Out of 9 RIS conferences, I've been to only 3, but hey that's one third of the time, so that's pretty good eh? I know some people can't afford it and I notice they have tickets for people that need them and you can donate to that worthy cause too. Are any of you going? I intend to and dd2(19) will be coming too insha Allah. Ds1(26) and dd1(24) are not too sure yet. DS2(15) wants to come too this year which will be his first time although he has been to the ISNA conference before with ds3(13) as well. Check out the link here.

    The tickets are very reasonable! I wonder how much airfare and hotel would cost...maybe my Hubby and I can have a little trip away...

  2. Wa alaikum Salaam

    They have a list of discounted hotels on the site. Check it out! Would be lovely to meet you IRL!

    we're planning to go in sha Allah, hope to see you there even if it's only ships in the night again! :-)

  4. Wa alaikum salaam

    Insha Allah. Can't we take this thing to the next level? rofl

  5. Alhumdulilah, you are so fortunate to have been to 3! Insha'Allah, one day. I love your blog title and you sound like a lot of fun. Have you been to Malaysia, that is another place I dream of going. Although, I will probably drive to Canada first:)

    InshaAllah, I would like to invite you to link up your blog here:

    JazakAllah Khayrm for your time!

  6. Asalaamu Alaikum


    Alhumdulilah yes I should see the glass as 1/3 full :) Jazakullah khair and masha Allah on the compliments. I think I'm a lot of fun too :) I have been to Malaysia, back in 2000, I lived there for 4 was my hijra but I came home for so many reasons. Do drive to Canada though and come to RIS. You'll love it.
    Wa iyaki.

  7. Just raised this issue with Hubby. He was all for it until he found out it was in Toronto. I guess that $400 airplane tickets * 5 people is a bit much. :(

  8. Can't you come just as a couple? :(

  9. No, then my kids would have to stay with my Christian family -- during Christmas. Not gonna do that. :(

  10. Assalaamu aleikum
    I'll e-mail you my cell # in sha Allah...
    @ Hethr - very understandable re Christmas. RIS is a blessing because among other things it is a v handy "Christmas Escape Route"! Eeven after all these years I am happy to have something to keep me busy on those particular days of the year. Hope you will be able to make it to RIS or a similar event soon. There are others springing up in other parts of Canada/US...

  11. Asalaamu alaikum Heather
    Sorry,I thought some of your kids were old enough to babysit but eveven so its so long and far away.

  12. Assalamu alaikum Huda
    that would be nice, thanks.

  13. Turns out my quran teacher will be coming, she just gave me a pamphlet tonight. :)

  14. As-salaamu'alaykum sis,
    Insha'Allah I'll see you there!! I'll be in the bazaar section as usual.

    Few more days left!

  15. Wa alaikum salaam

    Insha Allah...can't believe its so close, doesn't seem like it!
