Young Muslims

Young Muslims (YM) is a pioneering national youth organization that has been on the youth scene since the early 90’s. We have established a well organized network of local youth groups that we call NeighborNets (which means network of neighbors) across the United States and Canada. Each NeighborNet is a dynamic youth group which attempts to build a solid understanding of the principles of Islam amongst its members by helping them put these principles into practice. By providing the youth with an Islamic atmosphere where they can form bonds of brotherhood with their peers, they become comfortable with Islam and its teachings. We stress the importance of knowing, understanding, and fulfilling our individual and collective obligations as Muslims.

Young Muslims constantly strives to embody the Quranic verse: Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong: They are the ones to attain felicity.  (3:104)



  1. NeighborNets – this is the foundation of YM. These are weekly gatherings in which topics relevant to Muslim youth in America are discussed and presented. YM NeighborNets meet each week across YM’s vast network – from California to New Jersey & New York, to Chicago and Houston. We are constantly growing alhamdulillah.
  2. Retreats – a weekend long retreat where young Muslims are able to experience the wilderness and build brotherhood
  3. Youth Conferences – a day-long conference rejuvenating and boosting the emaan of the Muslim community through the help of well-known speakers.
  4. NeighborNet Coordinator Conference – a weekend long conference designed to equip the future YM leaders from all over the country with the necessary skills to create an impact in their respective communities.
