San Francisco Annual Islamic Congress
The "Annual Islamic Congress," convened by the As Sabeel Masjid Noor Al Islam at the Nob Hill Center in San Franscisco on 26-28 December 2003, was attended by well-known figures from the Islamic world and academics. Their presentations, based on Harun Yahya's works, focused on "The Miracles of the Qur'an" and "The Qur'an Leads the Way to Science." The conference, which displayed translations of some of Harun Yahya's books, attracted considerable interest. The messages sent to www.harunyahya.com afterward clearly indicated the books' great impact. One of these messages reads:
I listened to two of your speakers in the San Francisco Islam Congress and when returned home examined your site. I am amazed and impressed by all this in-depth research, Alhamdulillah. I feel more confident about my faith. I thank you for all these perfect studies. I will share this new knowledge with my friends and family. Karoline.
