Welcome to 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.
A movement to harmonize the sectarian disharmony. This is an attempt to ascribe to the term Muslim in letter and spirit in a time when sectarian cacophony is the order of the day.
A movement to elucidate the word of God only. This is an attempt to separate the sacred from the profane, in a time when human interpretations have become Divine words incarnate.
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 deterrent.
At “Understanding Islam”, all our effort are directed toward clearing the path of truth — as we see it — from all intellectual hindrances, for the seeking mind. We sincerely hope that our efforts shall not only help in removing doubts regarding Islam from the modern mind, but shall also help in bringing our readers close to their Creator and help them in cleansing their hearts, minds and souls for the sole purpose of achieving the everlasting bliss in the life hereafter.
Any assistance and help — whether making your acquaintances aware of this site by word of mouth or any financial contribution — would be highly appreciated. We also look forward to your comments, criticism and suggestions on our work and its presentation on this site.
May the Almighty guide us all to the path of His liking.
Thank you for visiting Understanding Islam.
