    Understanding Islam
    “This site epitomizes a movement. A movement to reform intellectual stagnation. This is an attempt to go back to the original sources of Islam — the Qur’an and the Sunnah, in a time when blind acquiescence is in vogue…In our pages you will find us working towards these objectives by explaining Islam from various aspects and by responding to criticisms and queries. This in fact is an academic effort targeted towards understanding of Islam and any abusive or emotional attitude in its response will not be a deterrence. However, it would be appropriate to mention two additional features of the site. Firstly, the inclusion of our Urdu articles under the title of ‘Ishraq’. Secondly, in the near future, rendering of different issues in the form of brief audio files.

    The Way to Truth
    Understanding Islamic Religion
    This well designed site includes a lengthy index of categories to choose from as well as selected readings.  The site is especially useful for anyone wanting a thorough introduction to Islam.
