Learn more about the true philosophy behind the teachings of Islam, which literally translates to "peace".

 

"The Holy Qur’an depicts religion as a matter between a person and God, verse after verse repeats the fact that only God knows what’s in the mind and heart of a person and it is only He who has the final decree. Every human is free to belief in what he or she thinks is right and no licence is given to anyone to force ones beliefs on others."
