New to Islam?

Dedicated to those who open their hearts in search of the truth. Islam is not a group, it is a way of life, full of purpose, full of reason. A Muslim does not show what Islam is, Islam shows what a Muslim is. A Muslim loves all that Allah loves. We love the beauty of the creation, Imagine the creator of it loving you! For those who seek the truth, the truth will smile at their door. May Allah bless all the new Muslims and may Allah bless those who study Islam with an open heart. Ameen
