What is the Islamic New Year?

Featured Prophet: Ibrahim

He is considered the Father of Monotheism because he is the earliest prophet, aside from Adam (as), which Muslims, Christians, and Jews agree upon. The lineage of most of the prophets and their people can be traced through Ibrahim’s (as) 2 sons, Ishaaq (as) or Isaac and Ismael (as) or Ishmael. Ishaaq (as) was the father of Yaqoob (as), also known as Jacob or Israel. Yaqoob (as) had 12 sons, which are known as Bani Israel, or the 12 tribes of Israel.

Dear Iqama Magazine

In the months since I have converted to Islam I have met many Muslims and learned so much about my new faith.  I firmly believe this religion is perfect, although not all of its followers are. I think that is one of the things that makes it difficult for a new Muslim to learn about Islam.  Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with learning “how to be a good Muslim”. I see different Muslims who practice the religion in different ways, and I think I need to do everything in order to be “the perfect Muslim”.  However, there is no such thing and I need to be reminded of that from time to time.

Featured Quote About the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH)

“If greatness of purpose, smallness of means, and astonishing results are the three criteria of a human genius, who could dare compare any great man in history with Muhammad? The most famous men created arms, laws, and empires only. They founded, if anything at all, no more than material powers which often crumbled away before their eyes. This man moved not only armies, legislations, empires, peoples, dynasties, but millions of men in one-third of the then inhabited world; and more than that, he moved the altars, the gods, the religions, the ideas, the beliefs and the souls.
