This site aims to explain the core elements of Islam in a structured and accessible way to those interested in understanding Islam as it has been understood by Muslims from its inception until today. Islam is widely known and recognised as one of the world’s most followed religions with a large and continually growing population. This site seeks to explain what Islam means from an Islamic perspective in a clear and concise manner. Knowledge and familiarity help in breaking down stereotypes, thereby facilitating peaceful co-existence and contributing to a constructive and positive interaction and integration of Muslims in Australian society. Here you will find what Muslims believe, how Muslims worship and the importance of Ihsaan also known as self-discipline or purification of the heart. Islam’s position in relation to family, society, financial transactions, and a broad overview of Islamic jurisprudence (sources of Islamic law and how contemporary issues are addressed) are also explained.
This site is designed to be introductory in nature. Therefore, the content while clear and detailed, is not intended to be comprehensive.
