The Power of Being OK - Volunteer Campaign

Touch of Khayr is a volunteer group associated with Muslim Aid. We are a team of young people dedicated to helping the ummah one campaign at a time.

 

As a group we have decided to launch a campaign on Mental Health because we are passionate about this. In fact, it is an important campaign because the rates of suicide and mental health issues have risen significantly since 2009. We have noticed that not many Muslim-based charities launched campaigns about mental health. Therefore, we have decided to shed light on Mental Health and allowing it to be a topic that can be questioned, discussed and studied without encouraging the taboo nature that it has received from our community.

 

The campaign: The Power Of Being Ok

 

This will demonstrate to everyone in our communities that it is OK to not feel OK, in other words, you are not alone in your mind or emotions. There are numerous ways that we will share that can help a person in not only understanding their mental health but also identifying ways that they can push through it or seek help. As Muslims, we must put our trust in Allah SWT and the process, He knows what is in our hearts and minds, and this is all part of the test. ‘There is no disease that Allah has created, except that He also has created its treatment’.

 

The campaign ‘The Power of Being Ok’ is designed to break down barriers within the Muslim community, clear up misconceptions, and make people comfortable to address any issues they may face surrounding mental health and get the help they need. Respectively, we do recognise that as Muslims sometimes Allah SWT may test us with things such as our mental health and having tawakkul (trust) is equally as important for some. “For indeed, with [every] hardship, there is relief. Indeed, with [every] hardship, there is relief” (Qur’an, 94:5-6).
