What is CelebrateMercy?

CelebrateMercy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that teaches about the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ’s life and character – to Muslims and the general public. We do this through short films, online campaigns, traveling conferences, and webinars that feature world-renowned speakers and scholars on Islam.

In 11 years, CelebrateMercy has: 

  • • Reached 300 million people through national media coverage
  • • Held 60 events for 200,000 participants in 115 countries
  • • Produced 300+ videos with 7 million views on YouTube & Facebook
  • • Generated social media posts leading to 700,000 subscribers

Since COVDI-19…

Logistical and financial challenges imposed by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic necessitated a shift in programming and pace for CelebrateMercy. Since emergency orders requiring physical distancing and self isolation were imposed, CelebrateMercy continued our Prophet-inspired work with:

  • 7 Campaigns raising over $1 million
  • 24 Virtual Conferences & Courses
  • 400+ Webinars (including on-going weekly programs)
  • 1,000+ Hours of New Programs Produced
  • 190,000+ Hours of Content Viewership
