This is a message for every free thinking and broadminded human being. It is for every seeker of the truth who might have, once wondered, what the religion of Islam is all about. Who Allah is, what is the ultimate goal of man’s existence, or what happens after death, for these questions and many others are prompted at certain occasions, but brushed aside by various factors.
Islam is indeed a misunderstood and misrepresented religion in the West. <<This misconception is hardly surprising>>, remarks the French Dr. Maurice Bucaille, in his book, The Bible, The Qur’an and Science. <<When we consider the way so many generations are the West was instructed in the religious problems facing humanity and the ignorance in which they were kept about anything related to Islam>>. Hence Islamic ideals remain obscure from the vast majority of non-Muslims.
This booklet does not claim to answer all the questions you would like to be answered. However, this booklet will open before you a new dimension of thinking, and will enable you to realize the importance of your role as a human being in the universe, to help you understanding the relationship between you and your Creator.
God Almighty Allah. It presents Islam to you in a nutshell, and provides straightforward answers to many questions about Islam and credibility.
In this booklet, you will also be able to know Allah, the last of His Scriptures, the last of His Prophets and Messengers, what Islam is the role of man in this life and other related issues.
Lest one may think that there is an English version of the Qur’an, I would like to draw the reader’s attention to the fact that Arabic is the only language of the Qur’an. Although the Qur’anic quotations and Prophetic traditions cited in this booklet are preceded with <<Allah says>>, only the meaning of such quotations are quoted.
