About Islam


The intent of this page is to introduce Al-Islam to the newcomer and beginner.  We pray that it is sufficient in its intent and does not go beyond the bounds of its intentions.  Allah guides whomever He chooses.

Have you fully realized what Islam is?
It is indeed a religion founded on truth.
It is such a fountain-head of learning
that several streams of wisdom and knowledge flow from it.
It is such a lamp that several lamps will be lit from it.
It is a lofty beacon of light, Illuminating the path of Allah.
It is such a set of principles and beliefs
that will fully satisfy every seeker of truth and reality
Know you all that Allah has made Islam, the most sublime path
for the attainment of His supreme pleasure
and the highest standard, of His worship and obedience.
He has favoured it with noble precepts,
exalted principles, undoubtable arguments,
unchallengeable supremacy, and undeniable wisdom.
It is up to you to maintain the eminence and dignity
granted to it by the Lord, to follow it sincerely,
to do justice to its articles of faith and belief,
to obey implicitly its tenets and orders,
and to give it the proper place in your lives.

— Ali ibn Abu Talib
