Young Muslims (Brothers)

Young Muslims 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 which we call NeighborNets (which means network of neighbors) across the nation. 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/sisterhood 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. There are two separate divisions of Young Muslims for both brothers and sisters. Visit – YMsite and YMonline for more information.

TX: ICNA Houston’s Police Sensitivity Training, Katrina Quake Relief Efforts

 
HOUSTON, Texas (November 15, 2005)- The ICNA Houston chapter conducts a monthly WhyIslam Program in which we hold a sensitivity training class for the Houston Police Department giving them an eight hour course on Islam and Muslims.


We have established a command control center for Hurricane Katrina Relief.  It is situated in a Days Inn motel where we are offering assistance such as counseling, assistance applying for FEMA and Red Cross benefits, and three meals per day free of charge.  Rides also arranged for the evacuees so that they can receive medical attention, pickup prescriptions, etc.  


The MGAs in Houston also participated in a coalition established by the Houston area Muslims, in which we fed the evacuees staying at the George R. Brown Convention Center.  The cost of this event was $125,000, which was paid for by the Muslim community of Houston.


We have held several fundraisers in Houston for the earthquake victims in Pakistan and have raised over $100,000 for ICNA Relief, Alhamdulillah.
