Thousands gather at largest convention of US Muslims
Tens of thousands of Muslims from across the U.S. gathered Saturday for the largest gathering of American Muslims, the 41st Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA)-Muslim American Society (MAS) convention in Baltimore, Maryland, some 65 kilometers (41 miles) from Washington, D.C.
During the convention, which runs May 28-30 and this year honors the Muslim holy Quran, The Divine Guidance, speakers from across the world delivered lectures to provide a better understanding of the holy scripture.
The event's organizers said they expect attendance to jump at least 30 percent this year, to 26,000 or more, reported The Baltimore Sun.
