The family institution should be the strongest of institutions as the society is built upon it. However, the current situation shows a sad state of affairs. Some of us are going through problems with our parents, others with their children. There are some who cannot see eye to eye with their siblings. Some out there are still trying to figure out their rights and responsibilities and the list goes on. Let's come together to reflect upon the trials faced by our society today and seek knowledge that would benefit us.

Behind Closed Doors is a family conference organized by Mercy Mission Malaysia with the aim to discuss topics that are relevant to the Muslim families in the modern world. We will be bringing speakers that are experts in their respective fields so that the audience will not only go home with a feel-good and positive mindset, but they will also take away practical advice and knowledge that they can start applying immediately in their family life.

Duri Dalam Daging
Ahmad Fakhri Hamzah
Generally, we welcome guidance from family members. But, how do we deal with advice that turns into criticism or insinuation? What if those 'guidance' are in reality misguided advice that displeases Allah? Do we keep quiet or retaliate? Do we sever the relationship or love them nonetheless?

Forum
Domestic violence and incest are something that often gets swept under the rug. Victims are usually too scared to come forward, and those that do often have to deal with the social stigma that follows it. For fear of being ridiculed or just not knowing what the right course of action should be, some victims have given up and let the violence to continue.

This forum session will be joined by Prof. Tan Sri Dzulkifli Abdul Razak, Firdaus Wong, Ahmad Fakhri Hamzah and Prof. Madya Dr. Rafidah Hanim Mokhtar

Life Ain't a Bed of Roses
Faisal Abdul Latif
Newlyweds usually look forward to a happy married life. Once married, they dream of settling down in a cozy and safe neighborhood, have children and maybe travel every once in a while. But for those who have been married for years, they know that marriage is not all about getting that perfect Instagram family portrait.

What makes a family? When there is a clash between our personal vision and the family's goal, we often sacrifice one over the other.  In this forum, joined by Sheikh Tariq Appleby, Faisal Abdul Latif, and Mohd Fasha Musthafa, we will discuss the importance of having a family goal and align it with our vision and values.
