Mercy Mission began with an idea. What is the most effective way to create positive social impact in a global way by combining the efforts of talented and educated Muslims?
Thinking about the prophetic mission of Muhammad ibn Abdullah (peace be upon him), we see the Prophet’s concern for all things: conveying the Quran; teaching about Allah; defending the faith; looking after the poor, the orphans and the elderly; elevating the status of women;
empowering the youth; establishing a community; building economic strength; and even worrying about animals and nature.
So clearly, if we claim to be following in the footsteps of the Final Messenger (peace be upon him), then we need to likewise take on challenges in different problem areas that affect Muslims and the world today.
Emboldened by this idea, a new type of organization was envisioned, an organization that brings together skilled and motivated Muslims to build projects focused on education, service and positive social impact. This mission had to be broad-based and globally relevant. The mission would be motivated by our desire to follow in the footsteps of the Messenger of God (peace be upon him) who was a mercy to all creation (rahmatul-lil-aalimeen). From here, Mercy Mission was born.
Inspired by this message and bound together by common values, young Muslim professionals in various countries began forming local teams, setting ambitious goals for themselves and launching projects in various sectors. Several countries, including Malaysia, have launched projects in diverse sectors such as women’s services and empowerment, international food aid, Islamic education and refugee support programs.
Since its incorporation in 2012, Mercy Mission Malaysia has touched the lives of millions through its various projects and initiatives.
