In these trying times, we must once again stand together and proclaim that Islam holds human life as sacred and condemns all senseless acts of violence! Anyone who transgresses against the rights of others, whether Muslim or Non-Muslim will be held accountable on the Day of Judgment for their crimes against humanity. Our hearts and prayers go out to the families of the victims.

As we advance in technology and especially in communication we realize how we can view what is taking place not only in one area but rather around the world. Lately many events that are taking place in the Islamic world moved many people to seek more knowledge about Islam, Muslims and the Muslim countries. Some sought out more information about the religion in an effort to understand. Unfortunately, some have become confused by the often contradictory answers and examples they find about the religion which could present a distorted picture of Islam. As we witness the current event we realize that many non-Muslims perceive Muslims as backworded and quick to react. This is not the case with all Muslims. The Qur’an (the Muslims Book of Guidance) calls for a healthy normal human life that is congruent with the natural make up of the human being to create healthy individuals, societies, and nations. Allah the Creator shows that all this can be achieved through proper knowledge and wisdom. Knowledge in general and divine knowledge in particular helped us reach this level of advancement. Such advancement facilitated faster communication and clear understandings of human relations to reduce the lack of understand among people about each other. Communication the key to human relation especially when it comes to religious values and their effects in our lives as human beings. To make use of technology and its tools, our site presents the basic foundations of Islam and its teaching as a divine religion. Islam is not a new religion, but a continuation, confirmation, and completion of the previously revealed divine messages sent in stages, and poured out in measure to mankind. Allah says: “This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed my favor upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion” (5:3) As our needs grow to understand Islam, this site focuses on the basic principles of Islam and shows that Islam is the guidance and light needed to achieve the proper life for better psychological and social health along with scientific advancement.
