“Whoever works righteousness, whether male or female, while he (or she) is a true believer, verily to him we will give a good life, and we shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do.” Quran 16:97

Our purpose here is to provide information about Islam for everyone, including non-Muslims and recent Muslim converts. We will be adding information about Islamic beliefs, the pillars of Islam (testimony of faith, prayer, Zakat or charity, fasting in Ramadan, and Hajj). We will also have information about many of the issues that are misrepresented in the media or that commonly confuse people, such as Islam’s standpoint on terrorism; the roles and rights of women in Islam; and Islam’s attitude toward issues like democracy, freedom, and science.
