These are challenging times for Muslims in the West where antagonism of Islam has becoming mainstream in many quarters. However, Islamic history is full of stories of resilience and strength in the face of ignorance and hate.

Many Muslims, especially the youth, are ill-prepared when confronted by such brazen blitzes. This conference is an opportunity to reflect on the power of faith to carry us "through troubled waters" - proverbially, from Makkah to Medina.

Some of the leading Muslim activists in the West will shed light on this and more at a one-day conference on Saturday, February 25 in Houston. The conference, hosted by ISNA, will include talks by community leaders and prominent scholars and activists.

That same evening, ISNA will host a benefit dinner, featuring Mehdi Hasan of Al Jazeera in conversation with some of the conference speakers to discuss the topic, "Finding Your Voice" in a TV-style format.
