Invitation Introduction (1) Introduction (2) And Now Let us Explore the “Journey to Explore Islam” Islam, in the specific sense, refers to the faith based on the Scripture revealed to Muhammad (S), the Arabian Prophet, 14 centuries ago. This scripture is known as the Quran. Allah, or God, described the Quran thusly: ‘And We have made the Quran easy to remember, so are there any who will take heed?’ Islam, in its general sense, means submission to the Will of the One, All-powerful Creator. It is the same essential religion followed and preached by the Biblical Prophets beginning with Adam and Noah, and through Abraham, Moses, and Jesus (A). Though Islam is the fastest growing religion in the West, many in the West are unaware of treasures Islam has to offer. Start your journey with this CD and explore Islam for yourself.
