Hi Queenl Happy New year to you if you celebrate the new year,. Well first let me say how proud I am of you to join this group, since I'm not Muslim I don't know your generic customs within our American society. I do understand that within your culture and religion that the American society must respect it, so as a suggestion you should reach out in your community to your neighborhood leaders to assist you in organizing a Deaf social club and it should be open to all. Just remember that your culture is specific with your genders male and female so the average American Deaf person who does not understand your culture will have difficulties not hard just a matter of comprehension, just take in all that you can to also teach the Deaf community in your area and beyond the beauty of your culture if allowed in. You may go on the internet and type in Deaf clubs in your city and state and you will see many different web sites and just click on them to find the right one to go to and to make friendships and interact with the community. Also ask your audiologist usually they may have information on societies in your hometown or the receptionist. Well I've said a lot and I hope that I've been able to answer your questions if it's been of help. Good luck on these endeavors.I'm a deaf person who doesn't know anyone else who is deaf. I would like to be friends with deaf people as I want to get more acquaintanced with the condition itself. Does any of you want to be friends? Also, are there any Muslims on here who are deaf? Wanna be friends?
Hi Queenl good afternoon how are you doing today, I see that you read my post and I hope that you will be able to take up as one of my suggestions, keep in the loop of the Societies that you register / sign up for, also put up a Memorandum (Notice) at your community center, Mosque Bulletin board with a Phone #, email, twitter & Facebook page these are great ways to start group associates. They usually start out small and don't get discouraged just keep after it, and before you know it you'll have a social gatherings going on set up with snack's and refreshments usually Friday or Saturday afternoons are best. So Queenl take care and enjoy the ride you'll be amazed of what you've started.Thank you so much, I really appreciate the time taken to write the post and your advices. I have been deaf since birth but I have never tried to find more about my condition, how others manage with it etc. So yes, I surely will do what you have suggested.
Thanks once again.
