“Say: ‘If the sea were ink with which to write the words of my Lord, the sea would surely run dry before the words of my Lord were finished, though we found another sea to replenish it.’“

(The Quran 18:109, Translated by, Dawood, N.J.. The Koran, Penguin Books Ltd.)

Understanding Islam

Understanding the true meaning of Islam has become vital in today’s global life.

Many non-Muslims today are interested in knowing about this religion because to them it is new, and many Muslims today find themselves in a position to explain Islam to the rest.

Then there are many non-Muslims today, who simply hate Islam based on the information that they derive from around them, and at the same time, there are many Muslims today, who drift away from Islam by trying justifying the acts of the terrorists.

For all those years when Islam was left alone by the people of other faiths, 9/11 of 2001 has changed that. Muslims are often found in a position to explain their religion to the rest of the people. Muslims are faced with challenges within. This web site hopes to discuss topics of Islam that are misunderstood by the non-Muslims and as well as by many of the Muslims themselves.

Globalization has made diversity a common feature. Whether you are a Muslim or a non-Muslim religious tolerance is very important and understanding Islam would only benefit us as a whole.


Sometimes things need to be explained from a common-sense viewpoint because sometimes that’s what makes sense.
