All materials on Institute Al Islam are written by our learned contributors and are based on the Holy Quran and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).
I have written many of the articles on this site and review all materials as they are published. My full time business helps me run this website and Alhumdlilah I am happy to enjoy working in the way of Allah Subhanawatalla.
Many Muslims suffer from the disease of believing that contribution to religion is a sacred practice and is solely reserved for qualified Islamic scholars, however this view is poor and there is no daleel from the Quran or Sunnah that conforms to this idea. On the contrary, Allah in the Quran says in Surah Al Asar:
“Except such as have Faith and do righteous deeds and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth and of Patience and Constancy.” Holy Quran; Surah 103; Verse 3
We must also remember that we have been revealed the Truth and it is incumbent upon us to forward it to our brothers and sisters:
“Those who conceal the clear (Signs) We have sent down and the guidance after We have made it clear for the people in the book on them shall be Allah’s curse and the curse of those entitled to curse. Except those who repent and make amends and openly declare (the truth) to them I turn; for I am Oft-Returning Most Merciful.” Holy Quran; Surah 2; Verse 159-160
One of the most beautiful verses of the Holy Quran on the subject is:
Invite (all) to the way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for thy Lord knoweth best who have strayed from His Path and who receive guidance. Holy Quran; Surah 16; Verse 125
My belief is that Allah is the one true God of the Worlds and Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is His final messenger and we in the true spirit are the followers of Prophet Muhammad(peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). I do not engage in shirk, taswuf or tawasul and considering that Islam is much maligned today by the inclusion of these prohibited practices in our deen, I seek Allah’s refuge from Shaitaan and pray to Him to keep our hearts pure and close to the truth of Islam. InshAllah.
In the end I pray to Allah to make this web site a source of Ilm and knowledge for its readers and may He accept our good righeteous deeds in this regards. Ameen.
