The Basics of Islam

Ryiadh Miah

Quran 11:1 - A. L. R. This is a book with verses fundamental (of established meaning) - further explained in detail - from One Who is Wise and Well Acquainted with all things.

Quran 18:66 - Moses said to him, "May I follow you, on the footing that you teach me something of the (higher) truth which you have been taught?"

This book is the culmination of seven years research.

A strong foundational overview of Islam is given.

Knowledge and wisdom is provided to enable the reader to have a working grounding on how to practise the religion of Islam.

We aim to lay the building blocks for the reader to then go on to make further spiritual progress.

The book makes every effort to uphold the integrity and principles of the Quran and Prophet Muhammad's legacy and traditions, as well as applying it to a modern day setting. Derived from tafsir, hadith, fiqh, seerah and aqeedah.

We have named the book, 'The Basics of Islam, ' but this can be partially misleading. The book is condensed but also aims to be comprehensive. Our aim with this book was for the reader to have all the fundamentals to be a good well informed Islamic Muslim. Matters that concern advance jurisprudence of the doctors of law and deep analysis of the Quran, are areas for specialist study.

We were focused in this book to highlight the core belief system and moral code of Islam, psychological skills, rules and precepts, and core teaching of the prophet. These concentrations give individuals, families and communities the knowledge and wisdom they need to prosper as sound Islamic Muslims.

Topics discussed are:

Guidance and morals
Learn about Allah the Creator
Core tenets of faith
The pitfalls of sin
The path to good deeds
How to cultivate good relations
Danger of the love of money
Good values and attitudes
Danger of idol worship
Islamic views of society
The importance of knowledge
Simple guide to the prayer
Collection of invocations
Stories of the main prophets
Explanation of surah Fatiha
Practical advice.

NOTE: This book is designed to be used in conjunction with practical help from the people of knowledge and experience with fellow worshippers. Theory should be supported with advice and demonstration. Also with counsel from those who can clear up minor questions, doubts, misconceptions and misunderstandings. Reciting English transliterations can be aided by looking up audio pronunciations on YouTube.

Ryiadh Miah has studied with noble learned scholars, and has been in contact with graduates from the Islamic University of Medinah.
