Ramadan Mubarak!

Posted June 17th, 2015 in General by rabab

Dear Al-Islam.org readers,

Salaam Alaikum!

As we get closer to the holy month of Ramadan, we would like to encourage our visitors to explore our resources to prepare for this beautiful month and make the most of it! This blog post will share select resources you can glimpse through from our site:

Gaining closeness to the Quran

The Al-Quran Project is a beneficial tool to get a basic English translation and commentary on Quranic verses.

We also host volumes of one of the greatest commentaries of the time – Tafsir al-Mizan authored by Allama Muhammad Husayn Tabatabai as well as many other Quranic commentaries!

Increasing Spirituality

A contemporary scholar and expert in Irfan/spirituality, Ayatullah Hasanzadeh Amuli has said, “An Irfan-less community is tantamount to a lifeless corpse”.

This month is described as the ‘divine banquet’ – an important month to work on our spirituality. A book on spirituality related to fasting in particular is “Spiritual Journey of the Mystics (Suluk al-Arifan)“.

There are many supplications we read during this month; understanding the depth and meaning behind those supplications is a great tool to increase our spirituality. A book in this regard is one by Shaykh Muhammad Khalfan that focuses on the inner meanings behind the popular du’a of the holy Prophet (saw) that we read after every Salaat in the month of Ramadan: Manifestations of the All-Merciful.

The Month of the Ummah

Let’s strive to develop a greater understanding of the Ummah through studying the present situation as well as history. The last Friday of this month, also known as “Yawm al-Quds” is a day to work towards the cause of the oppressed and become their voice – let’s make sure to participate in it in best way possible.

May we acquire the best benefits possible from this spiritual month!

Search Experience

Posted December 31st, 2013 in General, Search, Updates by abbas

Salam alaikum,

We’ve recently made some efforts to improve the search experience on Al-Islam.org

This includes support for

  • Exact text matches
  • Fuzzy matches
  • Some UI improvements
  • Ability to search with Google
  • New ability to search for organizations

However, we realize that there is more work to be done to make the search better.

Any feedback/suggestions are welcome
