What is Being ME?
Who we are?
Being ME is organised by Mercy Mission, a Muslim organisation that seeks to bring a world where every Muslim can live faithfully to their belief, building an exemplary Islamic community that benefits humanity. We are established in 8 countries and active in building schools and promoting Islamic knowledge according to the authentic teachings of the Quran and Hadith.
What we do?
We are an expansion of Mercy Mission’s portfolio of serving the needs of the Muslim community. This portfolio includes the AlKauthar Institute, New Muslim Care, 315Nisa, National Zakat Foundation and a growing list of social programs and services. Being ME offers lectures by prominent speakers and leaders; in-depth workshops on health, society, careers, and other pertinent issues.
Why we do it?
This conference embarks upon the mission to give all Muslim women a voice or an outlet to express the reality of their lifestyles, share accomplishments that benefit humanity and inspire others to do the same. We also provide the opportunity for all Muslim women to connect with each other so that we become pillars that support each other and the Deen.
Our Theme – Qur’an: The Compass to Compassion
Compassion has the power to soften our hearts, guide our speech, compel us to a cause and embolden us to achieve incredible acts of courage and sacrifice. The Qur’an lays out a roadmap for how the Muslimah can lead a life of compassion and mindfulness towards others – from maintaining family ties, forgiving those who wrong us, and overlooking the faults of others to being just to our neighbors, kind to animals and preserving the environment. This year, we explore what it means to live a life in constant mindfulness and mercy, to find the impetus to build bridges and mend relationships, and reach new heights in service towards others. Join us in an exploration of the Qur’an, the compass to cultivating compassion, so that we may purify our hearts, reach our character bests, and build a community rooted in compassion.
