ʿaqīdah, plural عقائد ʿaqāʾid, also rendered ʿaqīda, aqeeda etc.) is an Islamic term meaning “creed”. “Aqeedah…First…If They But Knew” That is the manner in which the Prophet (peace be upon him) brought up his companions: Iman first and then the Quran. Any religious belief system, or creed, can be considered an example of aqidah.
If you equated Islam as a journey through the darkness then, the Qur’an is the light that leads you. It is the One Book in which there is NO doubt. We must strive to learn all we can as Allah commands, in His Book: ” Read! In the Name of your Lord Who has created (all that exists).”
Seerah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
Seerah (sīra) means to travel or to be on a journey. A person’s sīra is that person’s journey through life, or biography, encompassing their birth, events in their life, manners and characteristics, and their death. Understanding the life of Muhammad (peace be upon him) is paramount to understanding Islam.
Hadeeth are a collection of traditions containing sayings, actions and tacit approvals of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) that, with accounts of his daily practice (the Sunna), constitute the major source of guidance for Muslims apart from the Qur’an.
The word FIQH is an Arabic term meaning “Deep Understanding” or “Full Comprehension”. Technically, it refers to the body of Islamic Law extracted from the detailed Islamic sources (which are studied in the principles) and the process of gaining knowledge of Islam through jurisprudence.
Religion can be tiresome for kids. Making the religion FUN brings children into a setting where learning is easier. The Children’s Section is a place to learn the fundamentals of Islam.
The Scientific Muslim
Islam has always encouraged seeking knowledge. Allah mentions in the Qur’an many of the scientific breakthroughs only recently ‘discovered’ by scientists; The Big Bang, gravity, time relativity & more. ALL mentioned in the Qur’an. Without Islam, MANY of the current sciences would not even exist! The contribution Islam has to science are innumerable.

What is Islam?
Islam has been built on five [pillars]: testifying that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, performing the prayers, paying the Zakah, making the pilgrimage to the House, and fasting in Ramadan.
This hadith focuses on the five pillars of Islam. The Prophet (peace be upon him) describes the foundations of Islam as having been “built upon five.” These foundational actions are either of the tongue, heart or otherwise.
Imagine a home above the ocean, with five pillars that reach to the ground to support the home above. That is the imagery that comes to mind when the Prophet (peace be upon him) talks about these five aspects upon which Islam is built.
Testifying that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah
