Texas Dawah Convention
This years program focuses on real day to day struggles that
you face in your lives, the community and within your
The theme for this year’s convention is “Footsteps of
Greatness”. Muslims often carry a sentimental tone when
addressing our past. From art and literature to scholastic
advancements to military and political triumphs, the history
of Muslims is looked to for both inspirations and nostalgia.
Conversely, a quick appraisal of the current state of
Muslims would indicate to any observer a darker picture.
Despite that, in the midst of the current negative climate
surrounding Islam and Muslims, we also see beacons of hope
all around us in successful entrepreneurs, professionals,
artists, athletes, inventors, politicians, activists,
scholars and academicians.
Location: 1001 Avenida de las Americas, Houston, Texas 77010

Truth to Power - Mehdi Hasan in Conversation
Please join us for a
compelling conversation with renowned journalist Mehdi Hasan!
Perhaps no topic is as
relevant today in the world as speaking truth to power -
from regimes who seek to silence journalists to brave voices
who stand up for the voiceless, we have entered an era when
moral clarity is rare and speaking up for the Truth is risky
business. Join us as we welcome Mehdi Hasan to explore this
very topic from multiple dimensions.
Date: Friday, February 1, 2019
Time: 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
Location: Maryam Islamic Center, 504 Sartartia Rd, Sugar

Safely ensconced in the Sahara desert, and drawing
its lifeblood from the river Nile, ancient Egyptian
civilization flourished for more than three
millennia. A quintessential example of what
archaeologists call a primary civilization,” ancient
Egypt did not rely on inspiration from others to
develop its own architecture, writing and
religion—all of Egyptian culture was developed “in
The themes of writing, religion, natural resources

Opening: May 31, 2013
Location: Houston Museum of Natural Science, 5555
Hermann Park Drive, Houston 77030
Ever since the late 18th century, the Western world
has been exploring Egypt. This hall will present
artifacts collected during these early days of
investigations, and will also compare old-style
archaeology with 21st-century approaches, such as
using satellite imagery and remote sensing to locate
and map ancient settlements. The Museum’s own mummy,
Ankh Hap, will be moved to his new surroundings in
time for the opening on May 24, 2013.
