Religion is something that we all talk about or think about often, maybe everyday, and Islam is in many of our conversations lately. Hopefully the articles presented in this web site will help you understand Islam.
Islam is peace. So what makes people to misunderstand it? Is it the way the Muslims behave? Or, is it the way people think of what Muslims believe?
Given that any bad activities done by Muslims are especially emphasized by the news media and people form their opinions from that information, the fact is, none of us are perfect, even the good people of any religion. If you are always looking for faults in people, chances are, you will find some, be it a fraction of that person. Islam is not a person; it is a religion full of wisdom and goodness. Islam is perfect, but not the Muslims, they are only human beings.
Islam is one of the three Monotheistic religions that exist today. Islam claims that it is the truth confirming the predictions previously made in the Scriptures of the other two Abrahamaic faiths - Judaism and Christianity, the prediction about another messenger. Islam claims that this Messenger of God was Prophet Muhammad (Peace be up on him), and the Holy Quran is the book that God revealed to him for the entire mankind, not just for Muslims, which remained unchanged and uncorrupted for the past fourteen centuries. If indeed that is the case, then, regardless of how the Muslims behave, it is worth looking into. Sometimes the truth lies in a place where you least expect.
Islam, a 7th century religion that is known to be originated in the deserts of Arabia, claims to offer the way of life for today's 21st century-society with a Scripture without a single modification to its original form. A religion that claims to have such a Scripture and how that Scripture remained unchanged over time is worth knowing.
So, please don’t be fooled by the certain Muslims' behavior. You will be truly amazed if you could see the depth and the beauty of this religion. You will be shocked to find the justness in this religion.
So, Islam may or may not be what you think, but the depth of this religion is bound to take you farther, it is bound to take any of us farther.

Glimpses of the Hadiths:
Prophet Muhammad (SAWS)'s sayings are known as the Hadiths. They are the indirect words of God as Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) did not just speak and give instructions out of his own desire.Therefore, his sayings are taken very seriously by the Muslims.
