Established in the Spring of 2004, EMERALD has grown from strength to strength by the grace of God, support from within the Ummah (Muslim community). Now established as the longest and leading Muslim professional Network of its kind, EMERALD has membership spanning diverse professions and locations, beyond the United Kingdom.

The vision for EMERALD is to Connect the Ummah, through Networking - enabling individual and collective benefits. The success stories reflect this, from individuals enhancing their personal and social lives through interaction with Muslims they would otherwise have not met had it not been for the events programme, through to gaining inspiration and knowledge from a faith perspective (embarking on personal spiritual journey), promoting and developing businesses, recruiting, through to raising money for a wide range of causes, responding to emergencies, saving lives through fundraiser events.
