In Conclusion



The only cause that I’ve found for why people are scared to learn more about Islam is because of the stereotypes and misconceptions propagated by the media. The media includes what we watch daily on TV, listen to on the radio, read in the newspaper, articles in magazines, online journals, etc, etc; All of which constantly associate Islam with such visually negative language as “terrorist, fundamentalist, Radical, Fascist, etc.”


When all you hear around you is negative things associated with Islam, people tend to subconsciously accept this as the norm and the truth and thus distance themselves from learning anything about or pertaining to Islam…which is a gross mistake. So finally, I truly hope that this page has cleared up many misconceptions and has opened up some eyes.


Now that you know the truth about Islam you are more knowledgeable than many of our peers who have misperceptions. Should you overhear someone talking about Islam untruthfully, tell them what you know…the world needs honest and open-minded dialogue today more than ever.


So with my last remark I’ll leave you with this: Read the Qur’an, Read the Bible, Read the Torah, Read into all the religions of the world, Read Philosophy, Read Poetry, Question Everything and Learn, Learn, Learn…“Knowledge is power!” (Cliche I know, Couldn't resist.)


Allah (God) has given us the necessary faculties of intellect to gain knowledge. With this abundance of knowledge we become better equipped in discerning truth from error:

"Verily We created Man from a drop of mingled sperm, in order to try him: So We gave him (the gifts), of Hearing and Sight."  - Qur’an English Translation [76:2] 

"O ye who believe! If a wicked person comes to you with any news, ascertain the truth, lest ye harm people unwittingly, and afterwards become full of repentance for what ye have done. " - Qur’an English Translation [49:6]




"But when they are told, 'Follow what God has bestowed from on high,' some answer, 'Nay, we shall follow [only] that which we found our forefathers believing in and doing.' Why, even if their forefathers did not use their reason at all, and were devoid of all guidance?"  – Qur’an English Translation [2:170]


May Peace be upon you!



As-Salāmu `Alaykum! Sholom Aleichem!
