It encourages building community centers and meeting people so that they help each others and lay the foundations of peaceful and stable societies.
In verses 29 & 30 of sura 89, Allah clearly orders the followers to socialize and network with His pious people if you have to enjoy the fruits of prosperity, peace and abundance.

Stronger the network, bigger the average. Simple.
