Islam: The Complete Way of Life (Vol 1) – Description




All praise is to Allah (swt) Who has guided us towards the right path, Islam. Countless blessings be upon the Mercy for all the worlds, our beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ who is the best example of practicing Islam and the best role model for all Muslims. 

It is duty of each and every Muslim to know the basic teachings, beliefs and system of worship of Islam. Muslim parents are responsible for the Islamic upbringing of their children and to teach them their religion, Islam, in the correct manner. To help parents in fulfilling this important task, different scholars have written detailed books which cover important topics and issues, which are widely available in the market. While looking over these books, I felt that an attempt should be made to write a brief and comprehensive book which would cover all the major rays of this illuminated diamond called Islam.

The result of this attempt is what is in your hands. In this book I have tried to provide the basic knowledge of Islam in a simple and lucid manner. It should be of great help to all those who wish to understand Islam as beginners.

I take full responsibility for any errors and mistakes in this book and I welcome any suggestions for improvements. I am grateful to Mr. M. Ishaq for his help in writing this book.

Humble servant of Almighty Allah,
(the utmost Kind, the ever Merciful)
