However, if you are a new Muslim or non-Muslim wanting to learn more about Islam, this is not the right group for you. We don't do religious or political discussions. You should contact your local mosque or a reliable trusted source for information about Islam.

These goals will be addressed via social events within art and music, culinary, singles and cultural events, and scientific and educational discourse.
We invite anyone who seeks guidance from the Creator and is in the quest for spiritual growth.
WHAT WE ARE NOT
We are not affiliated to any organization.
We are not associated with any race, culture, ethnic group or sect. In fact we bring together people from varied cultural backgrounds that are living in America.
We are not a "dating" site, although mingling is encouraged as it may result in an Islamic marriage between a man and a woman.
We are not a religious group - we are a social network.
We invite everyone in the spirit of these verses from the Quran that command beautiful preaching with humility and reason:
In the name of God Most Gracious Most Merciful
“And do not argue with the People of the Book (Muslims, Christans, Jews, Sabians ) unless it be in a way that is better, save with such of them as do wrong. But say, “We believe in the Revelation which has come down to us (Mohammed) and in that which came down to you (Jesus, Moses and all the messengers peace upon them all ). Our God and your God is One; and it is to Him we submit (in Islam).” (Quran:29:46)
"Invite (all) to the Way of your Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for your Lord knows best, who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance." (Quran:16:125)
"Those who believe (in the Qur'an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in God and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve." (Quran: 2:62)
"Say you: "We believe in God, and the revelation given to us, and to Abraham, Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to (all) prophets from their Lord: We make no difference between one and another of them: And we bow to God (in Islam)." (Quran:2:136)
