In the following pages we shall discuss a number of topics related to Islam. In our endeavour we shall have recourse to the oldest and most reliable Islamic sources, avoiding inventions or distortions that might bolster our arguments, and without taking liberties with the truth. In instances where we proffer our own interpretations, we acknowledge their personal nature and welcome any alternative views the reader may wish to submit in response.
Within these pages the reader will find a number of diverse articles and references to other websites with interesting and instructive texts about Islam. The articles are complementary to the web page “How to Study Islam” and are meant to familiarize the reader, through case studies, with Islamic principles, as they are equally an incentive towards gaining a deeper understanding of the nature of “Islamic logic” and a stimulus to delve more deeply into the sources of Islamic faith. Islamic logic and its applications are, indeed, generally a completely novel field for the Western mind, and this unfamiliarity allows Muslims to imbue the precepts of Islam with an aura of moderation – not always, as will be seen, deservedly. This website serves as a preliminary step towards a deeper probing into Islamic thought, eventually leading in turn to greater insight into, and understanding of, what Muslims actually mean when they speak of Islam.
