About Us

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 encourage these youth to take the next step and become the torchbearers of Islamic work in America. We stress the importance of knowing, understanding, and fulfilling our individual and collective obligations as Muslims.

Mission Statement

The goal of Young Muslims shall be to seek the pleasure of Allah (may He be Glorified and Exalted) by educating, facilitating, and developing the Muslim youth in becoming literate, balance-minded contributors of society that work individually and collectively to establish (the true, unadulterated teachings of) Islam in their lives.

History

As Muslim youth groups in the early 90s were popping up across the country in northern New Jersey, New York City, and Chicago, a unifying effort was made in order to establish a national network. Out of these collections of youth groups, Young Muslims was born. Our first charter and national coordinator were established in 1995.

In our twenty years we have grown immensely, expanding to 7 official regions in 5 states. We have established several national efforts and collaborations, producing prolific Islamic workers and bringing thousands closer to Islam. YM continues to challenge itself to grow as an organization, both in numbers and in quality..
