This book is an effective guide for our young readers in their quest to attain the truths of belief, Islam, and good character.


Growing in faith, and exemplary conduct, are essential for any Muslim on the path to intellectual, social, and spiritual maturation and perfection. My Guide to Understanding Islam is a three-volume compendium of rules and standards for today’s Muslim youth. It can serve as a self-study manual, and is suitable as well for the curriculum of Islamic education.

As the eminent Muslim scholar Bediuzzaman stated, “Belief is both light and power. Those who attain true belief can challenge the universe, and, in proportion to their belief’s strength, be relieved of the pressures of events…Belief requires affirming Divine Unity; affirmation of Divine Unity requires submitting to God; submission to God requires relying on God, and reliance on God yields happiness in both worlds.”

This is the definitive handbook for young readers seeking to learn and uphold the tenets of Islam.
