Understanding Islam: Frequently Asked Q&A

I started this blog about a year ago to share the experiences and personal accounts of the reverts, or so to say the non-Muslims embracing Islam. However, in my quest to know more about how people view Islam, I came across many misconceptions about Islam which persist in minds of many non-Muslims, especially the Christians. I have been compiling such misconceptions or questions that non-Muslims need to be answered and thought of answering these based on the viewpoints / explanations by some o f the prominent Muslim scholars of all times.

I will share these questions, herein under, and will try to answer these to clear the misconceptions and answer some of the frequently asked questions, some of which I have already written about:

1. Allah:
2. Qur'an:
3. Islam:
4. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ:
5. Muslim:
6. Justice / Shariah
7. Hajj / Umrah:
8. Ramadan:  Ramadan: Please refer to our Reference Page for details on the month of Ramadan

9. Zakat / Charity / Rizq:

11. Da'wah (The Invitation to Non-Muslims to Islam): Please refer to our Reference Page exclusive to Da'wah

12. Other Questions:
12. Relations with others
14. Misinformation / Disinformation about Islam
We shall keep adding questions in addition to the ones quoted above and try to answer in a layman's language. 

May Allāh (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which is embodiment of commandments of Allah contained in the Qur'ān. May Allah help us to be like the ones He loves and let our lives be lived helping others and not making others' lives miserable or unlivable. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door. 

وَمَا عَلَيۡنَاۤ اِلَّا الۡبَلٰغُ الۡمُبِيۡنُ‏ 
(36:17) and our duty is no more than to clearly convey the Message.”
That is Our duty is only to convey to you the message that Allah has entrusted us with. Then it is for you to accept it or reject it. We have not been made responsible for making you accept it forcibly, and if you do not accept it, we shall not be seized in consequence of your disbelief, you will yourselves be answerable for your actions on Day of Resurrection.

May Allah forgive me if my posts ever imply a piety far greater than I possess. I am most in need of guidance.

Reading the Qur'ān should be a daily obligation of a Muslim - Reading it with translation will make it meaningful. But reading its Exegesis / Tafsir will make you understand it fully. It will also help the Muslims to have grasp over social issues and their answers discussed in the Qur'an and other matter related to inter faith so that they are able to discuss issues with non-Muslims with authority based on refences from Qur'an.

Note: When we mention God in our posts, we mean One True God, we call Allah in Islam, with no associates. Allah is the Sole Creator of all things, and that Allah is all-powerful and all-knowing. Allah has no offspring, no race, no gender, no body, and is unaffected by the characteristics of human life.
