Bimillah Ar-Rahmaan Ar-Raheem
Allah Subhaanahu wa Ta'ala says in His Book: "Truth has come and Batil has vanished. Surely! Batil is ever bound to vanish
" [Surah al-Isra (17): 82 - interpretation of the meaning]
Islamic-Life is a website dedicated to compiling a dawah database for Muslims and non-Muslims. Our objective is to cover all Islamic topics and have it available for readers at one place, insha'Allah. We've also started working on making the ahadith available in Arabic and English (side by side) - mainly the well known collections. The part which stands out from whole project is an onslaught attack on falsehood (Islamophobes, modernists, deviant Muslim sects, etc.). We'll be using a different approach than what you've already seen. The style, and presentation of Islamic response to falsehood is purely based on traditional understanding of Islam; our aim is tackle their arguments while exposing the core of their methodology. In other words, it is a pure Sunni response based on tawheed.
At the moment, we have initiated the first phase of our project and that is compiling the best arguments in very short responses for easy access for Muslims to answer falsehood, and non-Muslims can also refer to it to learn about Islamic misconceptions. We have labeled it as "iDawah Database - Refutations Compilation". This is a unique and something never seen before. More details can be found here (Dawah Database layout - Refutation Compilation)
and for current progress you may refer to iDawah database Responses & Brainstorming
. The second phase of the project is to compile, and write long responses, which will be linked to short responses so that readers may refer to them to learn more.
We are in need of various kinds of help from our Muslim brothers and sisters. Currently we lack man-power and it is hurting the progress of our project. Hence, we're advertising our project to recruit more members, and let people know what we are doing. We ask brothers and sisters, who can help, to please join us in this noble effort to spread the teachings of Islam. Allah Subhaanhu wa Ta'ala says in the Qur'an (interpretation of the meaning): "Invite (all) to the way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for thy Lord knoweth, best who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance" [16:125]
and "Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong: Such are they who are successful" [3:110]
The whole project is divided into two parts: gathering and compiling; a) gathering the resources or the already written responses and b) polishing the old responses, writing new ones and editing
If you want to help us with the part b) then you have to be athree/salafi/hanabli in aqeedah because the way of the Salaf is the key to refute falsehood. Moreover, our project inlcudes the refutations to those who devitaed from the way of the Salaf.
We have categorized responses to falsehood as:
- Islam vs no religion (atheism, agnosticism, etc.)
- Islam vs other religions (Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, etc.)
- Islam vs secularism (modernists, liberal humanists, west, etc.)
- Ahlus Sunnah vs deviant sects (shia, sufis, ash'aris, jahmis, maturidis, mu'tazilis, qadyanis, etc.)
So if you have any background in one of the areas, please come out and help with gathering or compiling the responses.
There are many other ways you can help us with:
- spread the word by telling other people, adding links to Islamic-Life in your email/forum signature.
- frequently visit the website and/or register on forum to improve website's visibility on internet (i.e., search engines)
- if you have an Islamic blog/website or you know a friend who has this then please add a link to our website. You can also request us to link back to your or your friends' blog/website
- help us with advertising and promo videos
Lastly, we would want to remind everyone that we want to keep our intentions clean and pure: solely to please Allah 'Azza wa Jal.
Jazak Allah khayran
