April 24, 2008 - PRLog -- the first Muslim Social Networking Site created to serve young Muslims around the world has announced its official launch. Serving the majority of young people living throughout the Muslim world, Mecca is devoted to providing a platform for young Muslims around the world to connect and share their dreams.

Whether looking for individuals attending an iftar for Ramadan in their city or calculating Zakat, offers a number of services to its members including the ability to connect and share dreams, both at personal and professional level.

Named after Islam’s holiest city, also called (Mecca / Macca / Makka), the site is aimed at both Muslims and non-Muslims. as both a place to gather and to socialize.

Mecca ( is a privately funded by a number of socially-conscious investors from within the Muslim Community, the site is a response to the onslaught of social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace which have taken the world by storm yet often are not in sync with Islamic values.

“Many of the most popular sites in the world today don’t give a forum for many Muslim Youth to communicate about the range of issues they are facing today. Whether it be the biases they face living in the West or difficulties at home with family. Macca allows users to communicate in English or Arabic about those issues most important to us today.” said Sami Al-Taher, CEO. is the first site to allow young people a forum to discuss how they integrate living in a modern society while maintaining dedication to their culture and religion.

Users are entering a place where everyone present shares similar experiences. The Mecca Muslims Community benefits from a range of different modules that link individuals across borders and allow networking to create relationships, an online portal to learn about social events for the Muslim community and to remind Muslims living in the west about holidays/events, make them feel more connected to communities back home.
