This is a group for Progressive Muslims in their 20's or 30's looking to meet each other in NY, have light friendly conversation, socializing and connecting. We plan to meet at different venues in NYC, eat out, picnics,day trips, night outs and other adventures. We want to create a meet up for young, active and modern Muslims whether singles, couples or young families who enjoy brunching, dining, sports, outdoor adventures and some nightlife. This is not a religious,social or political discussion group. In fact we will steer clear from such topics and enjoy good company. Non Muslims who fit this profile are welcome to join us as well. Membership is open to residents of NY, NJ and CT.
RSVP YES to events only if you are 100% committed to attending which is only fair considering there is no membership fee for this group and we do not charge event fees either unless it is unavoidable.
Please link the meet up group to an active email ID so emails and messages reach you in timely manner. This group is for ACTIVE members only. INACTIVE members will be removed from group and are welcome to re-join when they are able to participate more actively. ACTIVE members are requested to make an effort to participate in any one event at least 3 months from their date of joining and 6 months from their last event to retain their membership. Our efforts are to create a compact, dynamic group and you should have the time and inclination to attend events.
Actual photo must be included in your profile, membership will be declined if anything else is displayed.
Meetup messaging is an important communication tool for this group, please ensure you are able to access and respond to messages sent by organizers. To access and reply to your messages click on the dialogue icon in top right corner with desktop view of this site or on the dialogue icon at the bottom in the meetup app. We have formed some good friendships in this group. If you want to connect with other members please join us for events. Inappropriate messages and behavior will not be tolerated and such members will be removed from group.
Organizing takes lot of time and effort and therefore we place high premium on members attending events as RSVP'd. Our organizers are offering to organize/host events in their spare time and are equally busy in their lives/careers, so we want to make this a smooth process for everyone. Request all members to note below rules of the group and take a moment before you RSVP. Treat these events as other social events where you are a guest and extend courtesy to the host/event organizer by RSVP'ing carefully. Thank you.
No need to RSVP NO if you are not attending, unless you are changing your RSVP from YES to NO.
RSVP YES to events only if you are 100% committed to attending, last minute change allowed in certain unavoidable circumstances. Remember that waitlisted members deserve fair opportunity to attend.
Certain premium reserved events as indicated on the event write up will only have Final RSVP, in other words it will be considered no show if you change from YES to NO.
No shows (members who RSVP YES and do not show up for the event without notice) will be removed from the group and banned from re-joining.
RSVP changes on day of event will not be tolerated with some understandable and reasonable exceptions.
Habitual RSVP changers (members who repeatedly RSVP Yes and change to NO) will be moved to waitlist by default. They may also be charged a meetup fee in advance for attending future events.
Please try to arrive on time for events and use MTA trip planner tool which is useful if you are using public transit for directions, transit changes during weekend and timings.
