 ﻢﻴﺣﺮﻟا ﻦﻤﺣﺮﻟا ﷲ ﻢﺴﺑ PREFACE Islam is one of the main religions in the world today. However, Islam is not clearly known to millions of people all through the world; it is even not known at all to many millions of people or often known in a distorted manner, owing to biased media or biased education or mere ignorance. This book is an attempt to give an idea about Islam, to clarify the Islamic position with regard to many issues such as faith, pillars of Islam, ethics, family, education, behavior, and many other areas of concern to the reader who may know a little about Islam. I hope that this book will satisfy people curious to know the truth about Islam. P.O. Box 818 Dr. Muhammad Ali Alkhuli Swaileh 11910 Amman, Jordan Jordan

 Question 1  God’s Pure Word  Which book has God’s pure word, undistorted and uncorrupted ?  The Revealed Book, the only one, which has God’s pure word now is theHoly Quran,the Book of Islam. It has had only one version since it was revealed by God to Prophet Muhammad about fourteen centuries ago. It is in Arabic, the same language of its revelation. The text is still as it was, with no single word more and no single word less . You can trust this book as God’s pure word becauseother books such as the existingOld TestamentandNew Testamentare just translations of lost originals. TheHoly Quranis the last revelation because Prophet Muhammad is the last Prophet as God tells us in theHoly Quranmore revealed books: no after theHoly Quranno more prophets after and Prophet Muhammad.  God says in theHoly Quran, “We have, without doubt, sent down the Message, and We will assuredly guard it ( from corruption ).”(Al-Hijr : 9 ).1
