The ME First Summit Changes Lives
From the very first summit in January 2017 lives have been effected by their involvement in the ME First Summit, both as speakers and as participants.
What became very clear was how much Muslim women across the globe needed and wanted to connect with expert Muslim women for help and support. The discussion and interaction in the Summit Facebook group was amazing. All the topics that are usually swept under the carpet came out and sisters felt the safety and confidence to speak up and share their experiences. We discussed domestic violence, child sexual abuse, women's pelvic and sexual health, depression to name a few of the taboo topics, along with all the important aspects of a Muslim woman's life such as self care, mental & spiritual health, marriage and parenting, money & business as well as empowerment of Muslim women to put themselves first and live the best life possible, in sha Allah.
Muslim women across the globe have benefitted in so many ways from being able to speak up and ask.
Everyone deserves that opportunity, not just those who can afford it.
For the experts, this is a platform for them to make a difference and be a part of a global revolution for Muslim women to step out of oppression and into their full potential. Those who are new to the online space have been launched through this platform and many opportunities opened up for them.
As an expert, it is an opportunity to connect with your sisters in Islam across the globe. Provide them with some golden nuggets to take away, and in turn, in sha Allah they will share that with others and your reward will continue beyond the Summit.
As the Prophet SAW taught us "Whoever guides [another] to a good deed will get a reward similar to the one who performs it." [Sahih Muslim]
I invite you to be a part of this ...
