Islamic Conferences: Have You Ever Been To Any? in Islamic Discussions Posted September 10, 2013 I attended ICNA (Islamic Circle North America) in May in Hartford, CT. It was quite a large crowd and was a great experience. It comes every year to Hartford, so I will definitely go next year (I live in CT). I wore an abaya and hijab, pretty simple, which was what most sisters wore. Some sisters were wearing Dubai abayas which were fancier, and there were more than a few in niquab as well. Also many sisters in traditional dress like salwar kameez. Bring a lot of cash with you as you will be sure to find lots of items you want at the bazaar--I stocked up on georgette hijabs and under scarves in all colors, as well as fancy hijab pins. I think every major convention will have a bazaar. The speakers are usually great as well, I got to hear Nouman Ali Khan and Suhaib Webb, among others. I wish I could have traveled down to DC for ISNA, but that was the week school started for us so I had to work (teacher). Hope this info helps.
