DIVERSE
TRADITIONAL
INCLUSIVE

We envision a society where Muslims are living a life that prioritizes pleasing our Creator while being culturally sensitive and without forsaking the blessings of this world, and that is socially and politically aware. 

Our aim to please God by providing a platform for traditional Islamic thought to affect positive change. We strive to do so by establishing a space for our community to discuss relevant issues and practical solutions.

We believe in living a morally uncompromising life as American-Muslims. Our identity is unique in that it represents the amalgamation of the best of our religion and the best of American culture.

previous
themes &
achievements
2001-2004
We started TDC because we felt a need for our community to come together for a spiritual recharge in light of the Quran and the teachings of our beloved prophet.
2005-2006
2005 was our first year at the GRB. The theme was "In the footsteps of Muhammad (p)". 2006 was a four-day convention about "Islam: A light for the ages". Both rocked!
2007
A Texas size carnival took place at TDC. The largest in the state. The theme was "Family in Focus" with four tracks: "the married life", "family first", "home" and "the community contract".
2008
We wanted to introspectively examine our community to explore what we've been doing good and what needs improvement. The theme was "Community in Focus".
2012
We decided to bring back TDC and collaborated with MAS-Houston to host "Islam's Future & You" at Hilton Americas.
2015
TDC came back after a 2-year hiatus. "To things that matter most" was the central theme and it addresses challenges to our spiritual and practical lives.
2016
Our theme was "You Matter". This was the year Tump won the presidency and Muslims were feeling insecure about their future.

Texas Dawah Convention (TDC) started in 2001 in Houston, Texas by a group of young students of Islamic knowledge and activists. The goal then, as it still is, to create a space where traditional Islamic views can be articulated while ensuring a deep level of integration of Muslims within our society.

Religion can sometimes become a double-edged sword. When applied with the purist sincerity to Allah, and in accordance with the way of His Messenger, Islam becomes the basis for the diffusion of love, peace, happiness and justice for all humanity. However, when religion is manipulated and used to achieve other than then pleasure of Allah, it often leads to the creation of ills rather than cures for our lives and society.

Thus it is our goal to continues to facilitate the dissemination of the message of Islam, so we can properly practice it, learn about it’s moderation and tolerance, its inclusivity and diversity of thought, and its beauty and tranquility. We often address issues that pertain to our spirituallity, our familial and communal obligations and commitments, our political civic responsibilities and civil rights, social and contemporary challenges and opportunities and much more.

In 2016, TDC merged with MuslimMatters.org, an online magazine that is dedicated matters pertaining to Muslims in the America and in the West. MuslimMatters is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that started its journey back in 2007 with the aim to bring attention to issues facing Muslims, especially in the West. It is one of the largest, if not the largest, Muslim based online magazine with more than 6 millions hits a year. It has won numerous awards from various entities such as Thomson Reuters, which has called MuslimMatters “The most popular site in Islamic Digital Economy” in 2015.

Our vision is to please Allah by providing a platform for orthodox thought leaders to affect positive change. We strive to do so by establishing safe spaces for our community to share and discuss relevant issues along with practical solutions, shaped by the experiences and viewpoints of its authors and speakers.

We look forward to seeing you at our convention. We thank you for welcoming us into your community and we ask Allah to guide us to that which he loves. Ameen.
