The purpose of this work is to provide factual unbiased information from Islamic sources concerning the essence and true nature of Islam. Most Americans have neither the time or desire to read and understand the Qur’an in a chronology within its historical context or strive to discern the significance of Muhammad’s tradition through the Sira [Muhammad’s Biography], Hadith [Traditions of Muhammad] and Tarikh [History of Islam]. Rather many, including those in government, find it far more expedient to draw their conclusions concerning Islam from the Executive Branch, news commentators or Muslim pundits. The prevailing popular commentaries include: Neither ISIS or Al Qaida are Islamic [False]; Muslims who we designate as moderate have no designs on a world dominated by Islam [False]; All Muslims are violent [False] and the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates have infiltrated American institutions with the intention of undermining the fabric of America [True].

Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam was a product of his 7th Century A.D. animistic upbringing. Prior to his birth in 570 A.D. his home town Mecca was the center for Arabian polytheism. His tribe adopted a black stone that was viewed as having come down from heaven. It was one of over 360 deities at the Ka’aba in Mecca. The prevailing belief system at that time was Sabianism. In this system the male moon-god Allah married the female sun-god. This union produced three goddesses Allat, Uzza and Manat. Fasting at the appearance of the crescent moon in the ninth lunar month known as Ramadan was adopted from this belief system.
