Two events were held in Edmonton to celebrate the publication of the first volume of the Integrated Encyclopedia of the Qur’an. The first event, held at the Markaz ul-Islam mosque on June 1, 2013, echoed the gathering of the community in the same mosque in 2010, when IEQ was still a dream. Celebrating the publication of volume 1, the Muslim community of Edmonton was delighted to see the sample copy (the shipment from the printers in Kuala Lumpur had been delayed).
The second event was held at the Royal Alberta Museum on June 23, 2013. Shaykh Abdalla Idris Ali was the guest speaker.
