Pastor Terry Jones in Florida has his congregation convinced to burn copies of the Quran in commemoration of September 11. Ironically, his approach is no less extreme. The question is how should Muslims and America’s leadership react. We can find a number of precedents in scriptures and prophetic traditions in response to his stated intention. Read more...

Explore the Islamic Sites page which contains some of the best links on Islam. The third link there is new pointing to the Tanzil Quran navigator - a page dedicated to make Quranic text available online accurately. According to the Tanzil Project page in Wikipedia, since the appearance of the first digital copy of the Holy Quran, there have been substantial efforts to produce an accurate Quran text in a simple script, but due to some difficulties, these efforts have been unsuccessful in many of the cases, and unfortunately, the simple Quran texts currently used in the majority of Quranic websites and applications have lots of errors and typos.
The erroneous Quran text has been so rapidly spread over the Internet that nowadays finding the correct form of Quranic verses has become almost impossible without referring to a verified printed manuscript.

This is the first time this website has been modified in format since 2006. Our hope is that you can easily navigate throughout the site. Additionally, we wanted to add enough value to the site to attract repeat visitors. To that end, we have created a blog page which we plan, ﺇﻥﺸﺄﺍﷲ , to keep populated with submitted articles by community members on various topics of interest. Our blog page will further allow you to post your own comments and to interact with other community members and posters. The blog page is RSS - -enabled. That means you can configure your RSS reader to receive broadcasts of the new posts and comments from the Masjid's blog site automatically.
We hope and pray to be able to provide our visitors with rich and dynamic content. We need your help and ask that you give us a helping hand.
