The Religion Of Oman — Ibadism

by Reema Singha  :  

While most of us have heard this word, we understand its meaning, correctly so, to be a sincere prayer (ibadat). And it is mostly in reference to Islam.

The Medical Benefits of Taraweeh Prayers

by Ibrahim B. Syed, Ph. D.  :

In Search Of Believers in the House of Islam

road right pathby Rashid Samnakay  :  

Although there are reputedly some 1.7 billion people who claim to be Muslims (Who and how they were counted?) but are there any Believers-Momins in the House of Islam today? It is important therefore to establish how the Book Quran defines Momin and Muslim. Believer-Momin is a Quranic term. The definition of a Believer is given in the first few lines of Chapter 2, which is the actual beginning of instructions; for those who had sought guidance and had proclaimed Unity of the Creator of the Universe and pledged obedience to Him in the first and opening Chapter.
