January 5-6, 2019  -  Texas Dawah Convention

This years program focuses on real day to day struggles that you face in your lives, the community and within your family.
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

February 1, 2019  -  Speaking 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 Land, Texas 77479
MEHDI HASAN is a columnist and senior contributor at The Intercept. He is the host of The Intercept podcast “Deconstructed.” Hasan is also the host of Al Jazeera English’s “UpFront.” He has interviewed, among others, Edward Snowden, Hamid Karzai, Ehud Olmert, and Gen. Michael Flynn. He is also the author of two books — a biography of former U.K. Labor Party leader Ed Miliband and an e-book on the financial crisis and austerity economics. He is based in Washington, D.C.
Organized by Risala Foundation.

Hall of Ancient Egypt
Permanent Collection
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 house.”

The themes of writing, religion, natural resources and of course mummification will be explored in this new permanent exhibition hall.

When: Members Preview: May 24-30, 2013; Public 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.
