seeking knowledge is great. This is the first step. I just became a volunteer in an NGO that works on conveying the Islamic message yesterday. We send books about Islam all over the world free of charge. We have them in several languages. You can contact me and I can send you whatever you wish for.
i m not qualified to initiate any one to any thing .but i m so glad of your interest to islam that i allowed my self to tell you about the 5 bases of deen (religion):
1-testimony that allah (god ) is unique and mohamet is his prophet.
5-pelingrage (hadj )
It is not easy to answer all of your questions on this forum, there are many resources that you can get the answers from, I recommend that you learn the basics by yourself and then you can ask someone for help, you might find some good information on al-islam,KOM
My name is Rebecca and I am college student. I have recently become very curious about the Muslim faith and wish to learn more. I am not trying to offend anyone, so please understand that anything offensive I might say is purely by accident. I just didn't know how else to get my questions answered.
What are the guiding principles of this faith?
Why do Muslim women cover their hair?
What sort of duties are expected from a person of faith in this comunity? Prayers?
What is deen?
What is imaan?
I just want to learn so that I might be a better friend and neighbor in my community.
