Surely, those who believe (in the Qur'an), And those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), And the Christians,
the converts; anyone who (1) believes in God, and (2) believes
in the Last Day, and (3) leads a righteous life, shall have their reward with their Lord: on them Shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. (Qur'an 2:62)

We are concerned Muslims, from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds, united by: our belief (Tawheed), with conviction in the Qur'an (being the last revelation from Allah to mankind revealed to his last Prophet Muhammad (saws) and the Sunnah (injunctions, laws and practical examples of the Qur'an in action) of the Prophet (saws), and the rightly guided Predecessors (the Companions of the Prophet (saws) and successive generations).
Today's extra ordinary subject matter is that Islam is being generally regarded as the enemy and as a threat to humanity. However, it has also been portrayed as a hostile, fanatical and violent and even idolatrous religion. These attributes and many social vices being linked with the religion necessitated the need to design and develop a site that would send the message of Islam to the entire world. A site that provides basic information about Islam, its various forms of application, their significance in the practical life of man and the nature and scope of the system which it wants to establish to bring virtue, goodness and peace in the lives of people. A site that will give place to better understanding of Islam and closer cooperation based on tolerance, facts, honesty and understanding in the areas of agreement and disagreement and respect for differences where we may disagree.

The word "Islam" is derived from the Arabic root "SLM" which means, among other things, peace, purity, submission and obedience. "Islam" means submission and total devotion to God alone. Similarly, the word Muslim is used in the Qur'an to describe one who submits to the will of God, and devotes his worship to Him alone. The Qur'an considers Abraham, David, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, and all other messengers and prophets, as Submitters, including any of their true followers. Muslims believe in the first commandment in the Old Testament, the New Testament, and in the Qur'an the Final Testament.
