Comparative Religion Courses (coming Summer 2019)
Looking at the demand for online learning and for Islamic courses, we have a modest target of launching short courses on Comparative Religion during 2019. These will be delivered online using existing materials from prominent scholars and shall allow our visitors to learn more and equip themselves in the field of Comparative Religion from the perspective of Islam.
A great way to Study Islam Online!
Why ‘another’ site offering even more Islamic courses? With the success of the Islamic Online University and other similar online efforts, the study of Islam online is growing at an exponential rate with high interest in learning various religious subjects.
Today (April 2019) we feel that some courses in the subject of Comparative Religion would help learners channel energies towards learning skills and techniques used by prominent Comparative Religion scholars in Islam like Sheikh Ahmed Deedat and others.
As a small home-grown Dawah outfit, we feel we can take a step ahead and bring our expertise in learning and eduction to further this purpose with the first such course going live in Summer 2019. We hope Allah gives us barakah in this and helps us in fulfilling our obligations as Muslims. إن شاء الله
Why study Islam online and what is Institute Al Islam?
Welcome to Institute Al Islam, one of the most authentic Islamic websites on the Internet.
From a tiny website in 1998 to It’s My Deen Organisation;
At Institute Al Islam we are engaged in publishing free Islamic literature using the Internet as a distribution medium. We publish online articles, books and videos from Popular Muslim Scholars to help Muslims and non-Muslims explore Islam with better understanding of the basic beliefs and practices. This approach has allowed our visitors to study Islam on a self-help basis for almost 21 years! ما شاء الله
21 Years’ Online Dawah – Articles, Books, Lectures and Debates
With a modest beginning in November 1998 we have been able to provide an excellent collection of Islamic materials. We add new literature regularly and make sure all information remains up to date. Institute Al Islam is now incorporated under our parent publishing effort, It’s My Deen Organisation. We are in the process of publishing new materials and online courses during 2019. إن شاء الله
Yusuf Ali Quran Translation – Free Quran!
By the Grace and Help of Allah Almighty, on April 21st, 1999 we were successful in publishing an online copy of the most popular English translation of the Holy Quran by Abdullah Yusuf Ali.
This Original English Translation of the Holy Quran by ‘Abdullāh Yūsuf ‘Alī (with Arabic Text) that was written between 1934 – 1937 and published thereafter – a copyright awarded to Khalil Al-Rawaf in 1946 – has now been published (2018) on it’s own website – https://quranyusufali.com/ – in it’s entirety including the rare Preface to the first edition and other introductory notes as available in the printed edition:
Preface to First Edition, 1934, Commentaries on the Quran, Translations of the Quran, Useful Works of Reference, Transliteration of Arabic Words and Names, Abbreviations Used, Punctuation Marks in the Arabic Text, Divisions of the Quran, Introduction, Contents – Suras or Chapters, Conclusion and L‘envoi, 1937.
QuranYusufAli.com – English and Arabic Text – the 1946 copy reprinted Online (2018)
The project of publishing this copy online at — QuranYusufAli.com — was initiated on August 11, 2018 to make this rare, yet world renowned translation of the Quran available to anyone with access to an Internet connection – absolutely free of charge. The online copy is proofread from a copy of the ‘Deedat Quran’ published in print by the Islamic Propagation Centre International and most popularly promoted by Sheikh Ahmed Deedat during his time as an International Comparative Religion daaee in the 80s and 90s.
Study Islamic Courses at Leisure – 24.7 Worldwide Access (coming Summer 2019)
With a mission to bring online Comparative Religion courses to the Muslim Ummah at the comfort of studying from home, the title of our first course has been released. You will be able to take the “Once Upon A Deedat – An Introduction to the Life and Times of Sheikh Ahmed Deedat and His Work in Islamic Propagation” course later this Summer 2019. A decision whether the course shall be absolutely FREE or NOT has not been made, however we hope and pray that we can offer something that’s worth learning and not worth spending on! إن شاء الله
