Explaining Islam is the sister website of Bismika Allahuma, which is intended for a related and yet separate audience altogether. We aim at serving the Muslim ummah through the tools of education and the power of the written word. We believe that spreading the message of Islam through the World Wide Web is the way forward for the da’wah movement.
At 1.6 billion, Islam is the world’s second largest religion. That is 1/4 of the human race. Yet Islam is probably the least understood of all religions. It is thus very unfortunate that it is the most relentlessly maligned in current times. The purpose of this website is to therefore provide visitors and those who are interested with the correct information about basic Islam, a background to Islamic belief and its practices. We serve to give you the best articles on general issues such as basic Islam, as well as other issues concerning or affecting the Muslim ummah in the world today.
It also aims to answer common misconceptions and polemics often hurled against the religion of Islam and Muslims; invite the antagonists to bring forth their evidence, as well as positioning itself as a useful online resource for those seeking to genuinely learn and understand about Islam, the din al-fitrah (or religio naturalis) of man.
We believe that this effort of ours is in line with the spirit of the Qur’an:
“…This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.” (Qur’an, 5:3)
May God Almighty give us success in our endeavour for the deen. Ameen, ameen, thumma ameen!
