The largest Muslim gathering in the U.S. will be held this weekend in northwest suburban Rosemont.

The annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America features several guest speakers, including Khizr and Ghazala Khan, who made national headlines by criticizing Donald Trump during the Democratic National Convention.

The Khans are Gold Star parents who lost their son while he was serving in Iraq and got into a heated exchange with Donald Trump when Khizr Khan spoke against Trump’s Muslim immigration policy.

The convention is the largest of its kind in North America with speakers, seminars and products catered to the Muslim community. The idea is to bring more understanding and acceptance of the Muslim faith.

“ISNA is one of the most inclusive Muslim organizations in America. We have 48 percent female speakers this year I am very happy to say. That is something that is unprecedented among American Muslim organizations, and God willing next year we will have an even greater percentage percentage,” said Hazem Vata of the Islamic Society of North America.

The theme for this year’s convention is “Navigating Challenges, Seizing Opportunities.” The group is promoting the teachings of Islam.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson will address the conference Saturday night.

    I have to say that the rise of Islam in our nation is not something I am comfortable with. And this particular gathering includes the Khans who also spoke at the Democrat Convention. These are not people to be trusted, and neither is their religion! The Islamic terrorists are the true believers of the Quran, while the moderates are the apostates! The problem is you don’t really know which ones are the true believers or which are the more harmless apostates!

      Thanks for your comment soxpatfan!

      The world needs to wake up to the fact that Islam is not a religion of peace. Islam does not mean “peace” but “submission”! Submit or die. It’s actually more of a set of evil ideologies which are being used to try and take total control of the world. And when it comes down to it, just where will these moderate followers be? I will take a wild guess and say with the fundamentalist believers! It seems as though more and more of them are already becoming true followers as time goes on.

      America is a nation founded on the morals and values of God Almighty, by God Almighty, and for God Almighty! People have the right to practice their religion, however, Christianity is at the core of our values, principles and beliefs, and America should be governed as such, overriding the teachings of any other religion! It doesn’t take much to see just how far our government has wandered away from our true founder, Jesus Christ.

      God bless! Maranatha!
