HiBehold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternationof night and day, there are indeed Signs for people of understanding.People who celebrate the praises of Allah, standing, sitting, and lyingdown on their sides, and contemplate the (wonders of) creation in theheavens and the earth, (with the thought): "Our Lord! not for nothing haveYou created (all) this! Glory to You! Give us salvation from the penaltyof the Fire." [Quran 3:190-191]http://www.islamonline.org/english/index.shtmlPeace and Blessings of God be upon you! You are now standing at theGateway of God's Greatest Gift to Man: Islam, which is the Complete Way ofLife as taught to us by all the Prophets of God.We request you to enter this portal, with a free mind and a free heart,looking for God's Truth. Hopefully, this site will help you to get a trueunderstanding of Islam, which is the Life of about a billion and halfpeople inhabiting our planet.You get authentic information about Islam here, so that you have thechance of knowing what Islam really is. Please have the patience tocarefully read the pages and compare the information you get here withwhatever you had thought about Islam previously. If required, you cansupplement your knowledge with further reading of the Original Sources ofIslam and other books by scholars who have studied Islam in depth and livein Islam. If you as an outsider, observe those people who call themselvesMuslims, you may not see much of Islam in them; or their life maymisrepresent Islam, as in the case of the followers of any religion, forthat matter. If you want to study what Christianity is, you go to thegreat scholars of Christianity as well as to the Bible, the Holy Book ofChristianity. So also in the case of Islam, where you need to getinformation about it from the most authentic sources. Then only can youjudge Islam as well as Muslims as to how they really compare with thefollowers of other religions, or how they fare in their observance of thisGreat Religion.http://www.thetruereligion.org For Your Question & Answers Click here>: www.islam-qa.com"I began to see Islam with its own eyes, as the unadulterated, pristinebelief in the one and only, the true God, Who does not beget, and was notbegotten, Whom nothing and nobody resembles à In place of the qualifieddeism of a tribal God and the constructions of a divine Trinity, theQurÆan showed me the most lucid, most straightforward, the most abstract -thus historically most advanced û and least anthropomorphic concept ofGod. The QurÆanÆs ontological statements, as well as its ethicalteachings, impressed me as profoundly plausible, ôas good as gold,ö sothere was no room for even the slightest doubt about the authenticity ofMuhammadÆs prophetic mission. People who understand human nature cannotfail to appreciate the infinite wisdom of the ôDos and DonÆtsö handed downfrom God to man in the form of the QurÆan." Dr. Murad Hofmann-Beltsville,GermanyChristian Minister's Conversion to Islam"There is some irony in the fact that the supposedly best, brightest, andmost idealistic of ministers-to-be are selected for the very best ofseminary education, e.g. that offered at that time at the Harvard DivinitySchool. The irony is that, given such an education, the seminarian isexposed to ... much ... historical truth. .. As such, it is no real wonderthat almost a majority of such seminary graduates leave seminary, not toôfill pulpitsö, where they would be asked to preach that which they knowis not true, but to enter the various counseling professions. Such wasalso the case for me, as I went on to earn a masterÆs and doctorate inclinical psychology." Dr. Dirks is a former minister (deacon) of theUnited Methodist Church. He holds a Master's degree in Divinity fromHarvard University and a Doctorate in Psychology from the University ofDenver. Author of "The Cross and the Crescent: An Interfaith Dialoguebetween Christianity and Islam" (2001), and "Abraham: The Friend of God"(2002).

I am so very glad that I am a Muslim. Islam is my life. Islam is the beatof my heart. Islam is the blood that courses through my veins. Islam is mystrength. Islam is my life so wonderful and beautiful. Without Islam I amnothing, and should Allah ever turn His magnificent face from me, I couldnot survive." Aminah Assilmi "For those whom Islam has embraced, the greatest witness to GodÆsunremitting, pursuing, sustaining, and guiding love is the QurÆan. Like avast magnificent ocean, it lures you deeper and deeper into its dazzlingwaves until you are swept into it. But instead of drowning in a sea ofdarkness, as described above, you find yourself immersed in an ocean ofdivine light and mercy. à as I read the QurÆan and prayed the Islamicprayers, a door to my heart was unsealed and I was immersed in anoverwhelming tenderness. Love became more permanent and real than theearth beneath my feet; its power restored me and made it so that even Icould feel love à I was happy enough to have found faith in a sensiblereligion. But I never expected to be touched by such intoxicating mercy."Dr. Jeffrey Lang Many people, Muslim and Non-Muslim alike, ask me the question: "ChaplainYusuf, how did you come to Islam?" neighbor, here's my story. . .
