A word from the author: There are many dictionaries concerning many fields of life, but we do not yet have an explanatory dictionary regarding Islamic terms. So I have tried to fill that gap with this dictionary and hopefully give the readers a sufficient ground towards a better understanding of Islam. In essence, I hope you readers will become enlightened.
As to the contents of this Dictionary; it contains various aspects about Islam, such as Qur'anic words (illustrated by some verses from the Holy Qur'an), the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h.), worship, marriage, divorce, our heritage, the terms of Fiqh, the permissible and prohibited in Islam, the sources of legislation of Islam and many other important issues.
How to use the Dictionary? This Dictionary can be used by Arabs and non-Arabs alike. The Arabs may use it as any dictionary from Arabic into English and from English into Arabic. As for the non-Arab speaking individuals, they may use it as a book or reference, in that it provides a transliteration for every word in the Qur'an. It will help the reader to read and understand the Qur'an.
