If you are looking for an authentic and moderate Islamic Guide for new Muslims who converted, you can visit the latter site in order to explore a version which is cleaned of extremism and inventions (bida’).
IslamGuide.info explains Islam in an objective way by referring to the Koran and the authentic Prophet’s Hadiths PBUH.
Islam is an Abrahamic monotheistic religion teaching that there is only one God (Allah) and that Muhammad is the messenger of God. It is the world's second-largest religion and the fastest-growing major religion in the world, with over 1.8 billion followers or 24.1% of the global population, known as Muslims.
Islam means peace, purity, submission and obedience. In the religious sense, Islam means submission to the will of God and obedience to His law.
All divine messages, which the prophets brought to their people, called to the worship of Allah alone without associating anyone in worship with Him and to reject all false deities.
The prayer (salaat) is the very foundation of religion and a ‘link’ between a servant and his Lord, hence its exalted position as the greatest act of worship in Islam. Almighty Allah commands Muslims to observe it under all circumstances—whether they are residents or travellers, sick or in good health.
Allah commands Muslims to observe a strict fast for one lunar month every year, namely, Ramadaan, which is the fourth pillar of Islam. As the Qur’an states, “O you who believe, fasting has been prescribed for you, just as it was prescribed for those before you, so that you may become righteous.” (Soorat Al-Baqarah, 2:183)
The Prophet PBUH said: “Islam has been built on five [pillars]: Testifying that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, performing the prayers, paying the zakat, making the pilgrimage to the House, and fasting in Ramadaan.”
Hajj, the annual Muslim pilgrimage to Makkah, is the fifth pillar of Islam. It is an act of worship which not only involves the heart but also requires physical and financial ability and must be carried out by every able-bodied Muslim who can afford to do so once in his lifetime.
