Introduction to WAMY
The World Assembly of Muslim Youth or WAMY, an international non-governmental organization registered with the United Nations (UN) was established in 1973 (1392 H) with the objective of providing a platform where Muslim youth can get together in an Islamic environment. WAMY organizes conferences, symposia, educational workshops and study circles to address youth and students issues.
WAMY aims to preserve the Muslim identity, to help overcome problems that Muslim youth face in the modern society, and to educate and train Muslim youth in order for them to become active and constructive citizens in their countries. WAMY aims to Introduce Islam to non-Muslims in its unadulterated form, as a comprehensive system or way of life and to nurture cordial dialogue and mutual understanding between different religious organizations.
WAMY aims to publish books, brochures, reports and exhibition materials that best introduce Islam to Muslims and non-Muslims alike, in its holistic form, and best educate the Muslims about their important position and role in the society. WAMY aims to organize exchange visits, Hajj and Umrah trips and provide leadership training and financial support to Muslim youth in order to help them lead a virtuous and successful life.
