Guide to Islam For New Muslims

Assalamu 'alaykum, peace be with you.

* * We would like to welcome you to the world of Islam. After receiving so many requests from new and potential Muslims for Islamic information, we have decided to compile this resource guide to further your search for knowledge and to put the resources of the entire Muslim Ummah (community) within reach.

* * This resource guide covers four main areas:

The first section is a summary of basic Islamic teachings and practices.

The second section concerns advice for Muslims on the path to truth.

The third section is a listing of the best books for a Muslim to read.

And finally, a listing of basic Islamic terms that you, as a new Muslim, ought to learn is provided.

* May your path to knowledge be fruitful and may your road to truth lead you to the right way. Ameen (Let it be so).

To become a Muslim you only have to sincerely believe in
and say the following phrase:

"Ash hadu an la ilaha ill Allah wa ash hadu anna Muhammadar Rasul Allah."

"I declare there is no god but Allah and I declare that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah."
