Professor Yahya Michot:
Anyone who wants to know about Muslims needs to learn about the Islam that shapes their lives. Islam has a rich and diverse history, intellectual tradition and culture. This programme seeks to give a first introduction to Understanding Islam in some of its richness and diversity. It will be of benefit to Muslims and non-Muslims alike. It has been prepared under the direction of a group of Muslim scholars from both Sunni and Shi'a schools and it supported by quotations from the Qur'an in English for those who wish to take their study further. It is to be heartily recommended.
Dr Jabal Buaben:
I have worked together with my colleagues from different perspectives to put together a programme that we firmly believe is one of the best available.
We have endeavoured to be as fair and objective as possible and are convinced that it represents Islam faithfully. Without any hesitation, I fully endorse it and recommend it highly to all those who seek a comprehensive basic study of Islam.
Maulana Shahid Raza:
This programme of Islamic learning is the result of a joint academic effort by a group of experts coming from both Sunni and Shi'a traditions with diverse backgrounds of experience and insight on Islamic issues. It offers a unique opportunity of learning about Islam for both Muslims and non-Muslims alike. I strongly believe that this programme with portray an accurate and positive image of Islam and will help people to see the true face of Islam.
Shaykh Mohammad Bahmanpour:
As a group of scholars from both Sunni and Shi'a schools of Islam, we have worked together to produce this online learning package for the benefit of anyone who seeks knowledge. It is comprehensive and balanced in its approach yet written in a way that makes it accessible to everyone. If students work their way through it systematically, they will get a real insight into the Muslim way of life.
