Explore Islam

And your Lord has decreed  that you worship none but Him.  And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them  attain old age in your life,  say not to them a word of disrespect,  nor shout at them  but address them in terms of honour. [The Qurán 11:23]

In this section, you can explore Islam from different perspectives. Click on the links to the right to jump to the topic you would like to learn more about or browse below. Hope that Non-Muslims and Muslims alike will find the resources useful.

Subsections to browse in "Explore Islam"

  • Get rid of Stereotypes  & MISCONCEPTIONS...

    • It is a fact that Islam receives a most Hostile media coverage. It is not difficult to see that Muslim's are being stereotyped as a threat to the "New World Order". The articles in this section are a starting point in clearing some of the nonsense.

  • Grasp the essence: Introduction to Islamic FAITH...

    • It is very essential to understand the True Significance and Meaning of the Islamic articles of Faith. Allah (swt) said in the Holy Qur'aan "This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favor upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion".

  • Principles of Islam

  • Pillars of Faith (Personality Development)

  • Follow the path LIVING ISLAAM...

    • Islam is a religion of Practice. It means that Muslims MUST strive to perform all their actions according to the Way shown by Islamic way. Also it means that Islam does not differentiate between Spiritual and Worldly Life or between Religion and State.

  • Science and Islam...
    • The message of the Qurán was directly responsible for re-inculcating the scientific spirit. The early history of Islam is thus accompanied by scientific brilliance in the Islamic World while Europe lay in its dark ages.
  • Especially for Reverts (New Muslims)...
    • This page contains links to information for reverts to Islam or New Muslims.
  • Especially for Muslim Sisters...
    • The status of women in Islam is often an issue of criticism in modern times. This has got to do with the lack of information about God's commands in the Qurán about the equal status of women, their rights, responsibilities and the dignity that Islam seeks to achieve for them. Some modern day Muslim cultures are also at fault in denying the just rights which Islam has granted to them. Articles and links in this sections are meant to convey the rights and status given to women in Islam.
  • Islamic Multimedia - Audio and Video...
    • Listen to or Download Quran recitations/translations, adhans (call to prayers), lectures and/or debates related to Islam and contemporary Issues or Comparative religion, etc. 
  • Dawah - Inviting to Islam...
    • It is an obligation upon Muslims to convey the message of Islam to those who are not aware of it being the final revelation from God Almighty. As such, it is necessary for Muslims to learn the method used by the Prophets of God (peace be upon them all), taught by the Quran and from the practice of the final messenger Muhammad (peace be upon him). This section contains a list of articles regarding the same.
  • For Muslim Webmasters...
    • Contains some suggestions & how to link to our site.

Is it a wonder for mankind  that We have sent our Inspiration  to a man from amongst themselves  (saying): "Warn mankind and  give good news to those who believe  that they shall have with their Lord  the reward of their good deeds"?  But the disbelievers say:  "This is indeed an evil sorcerer!" [The Qurán 3:64]

More sections on Youth, Kids, Q&A, Literature Library, Current Issues, Hoaxes and more are in the pipeline and will be added insha'allah soon...

Few Quick Basics...

  • Allah means "The One and only God" in Arabic. It is the same God as worshipped by the Christians and the Jews and other believers.
  • Islam means "Surrender to the will of Allah (swt)", ie, to choose to live a life according to the path shown by Allah (swt) through his messenger Muhammad (pbuh). In simpler words, TO DO what God has commanded to do and TO REFRAIN FROM what he has commanded to refrain from.
  • Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is the Last Messenger of Allah (swt) for mankind who was assigned the task to complete the message from the Almighty and establish a system based on it in his life.
  • The Holy Qur'an is the book revealed by Allah (swt) to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as the final message, a confirmation and a warning, for all humanity till the Last Day.

The Holy Qur'an - God's Revelation for all humanity

Read !! Read in the name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists),  Has created man from a Clot,  Read ! And your Lord is the Most Generous,  Who has taught by the Pen,  Has taught man that which he knew not. (The Holy Quran - Chapter 96 - verses 1 -5)
