That's excellent advice from the brother sayfullaah, let Shaikh Fawzee (hafidhahullaah) advise you.
I'm originally from Chicaog myself. I grew up there and have lots of family there. I hope to meet you brothers in Phili as I should be there too. I have a Muslim cousin in Chicago who's new to the Salafi Da'wah. We've kept in touch over the years, even while I was over seas, but I need to direct him to some Salafees there who he can connect with and help him understand the Salafi manhaj better. He lives in Bellwood and his name is Abdul-Hakeem.
If any of you brothers can PM me so we can exchange information, I would appreciate it.
