Islam


"This is the Book in which there is no doubt, a guide for whom guards self against sin and is God-conscious." Al-Baqara(2):2

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

bismi Allahi alrraHmani alrraHeemi

(In the name of Allah, the full and continuous source of love, mercy, and kindness)

This is Islam - Introduction

Main reason I am preparing this page is to mainly organize many resources that I acquire and enjoy about Islam into one place for easy access and referral. InshaAllah, my efforts may benefit me and others alike.

Islam is a religion that provides guidance for humankind's life in every aspect. It is a complete and accurate way of life. Islam is the natural religion who was given to Adam(عليه سلم) and to all the other prophets and messengers including Nuh(عليه سلم), Ibrahim(عليه سلم), Musa(عليه سلم), 'Isa(عليه سلم) and finally sealed, perfected and protected with Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسل) and The Holy Qur'an. Islam means surrendering and submitting one's will to the Almighty Creator of all that exists with peace and humble obedience. Muslim by definition then is one who submits and obeys Allah() in sincerity and own choice. By loosing self for the sake of the All-Merciful Sustainer of the worlds, a Muslim finds inner peace and purpose in life, while living a life in accordance with the Creator's Will. (more...)

I would like this site to be informative as well as enjoyable by visitors. The aim is to learn, understand, share and seek to gain knowledge that we're blessed with on this earth. "Knowledge is the life of the mind." - Abu Bakr (r.a.)

NOTES:

  • Abbreviations and Islamic terms used through-out this site can be found under the glossary.
  • When quoting Qur'an translations I will specify the translator with a 2 letter code. YA: Yusuf Ali, MA: Muhammad Asad, MM: Mualana Muhammad Ali, HK: Hilali/Khan, PK: Pickhtal, SH: Shakir. If there is no code, it is probably my translation. Please keep in mind that Qur'an cannot be truly translated into any language. It is perfect in its Arabic form in many levels such as eloquence, word selection, rhythm, grammar integrity and usage, purity, uniqueness etc.
