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 – Love, Aisha
Theirs was a profound love, tested and true, for she was an extraordinary woman of tremendous strength, superior intellect, and unshakeable faith.
When asked, ‘O Messenger of Allah , who is the most beloved person in the world to you?’ He named her, without a moment’s hesitation.
Aisha, Mother of the Believers.
Among the first of Muslims born into the Ummah, she was a student of knowledge, a distinguished scholar, an eloquent poet, a leader in battle, and a wife who fiercely loved and was loved. The depth of her character and personality reveal a complex woman who speaks to our hearts, stimulates our minds and inspires our souls.
This year, we explore the life of our beloved mother, Aisha . Her narrations are woven in historical texts, almost as letters written to the Muslimahs of today. From her legacy, we find lessons to bring out the best version of ourselves and strive to follow the example of one the greatest women that ever lived.
