Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Beloved brother in Islam, when one enters into the fold of Islam, all the believers worldwide, regardless of race, color, status, nationality, or any other denomination, etc. are united in the family of the Universal Brotherhood of Al-Islam.
Allah Subhanah has blessed the believers to meet their brothers in faith five times a day in the mosques, where they attend their obligatory prayers in the Praise and Worship of their Merciful Lord. There is no better place than the mosques to meet your brother believers; and if you talk to the Imam or leader of your local mosque, wherever you are residing, we are sure he will be able to help you in meeting other muslims. The Imam is also probably the best person to consult if you are looking to marry a righteous muslim woman, for he would have knowledge of the single believing woman who are looking to marry righteous believing men.
The Messenger of Allah (saws) advised the believers to associate and socialize with one-another, help each other, and be sincere well wishers of each other. The Messenger of Allah (saws) guided the believers to stay in a congregation, as the strength of the Brotherhood in Islam keeps the Shaitaan at bay. If one lives his life alone, he will be like a stray sheep and an easy target for the wolf!
Abu ad-Darda' reports that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said: "If there are three men in a village or desert and salah is not established among them, then the Satan takes mastery over them. So be with the congregation since the wolf devours the remote (stray) sheep." This is related by Abu Dawud.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
