the "Islam - The Modern Religion" website founded and why?
It was founded
on March 28th 1998 by a teenage girl. She wanted to share with others everything
that she loved about Islam - she was just a learning then and so the first
version of ITMR was just a page with a link to the English translation
of the Quran. Today, ITMR has grown with its webmaster - it has over 2000
Why is it
entitled "Islam - The Modern Religion"?
The use of
the word modern is not to connote changing Islam to suit modern times.
Is it called modern because the Islam, revealed 1400 years ago is still
applicable as a solution to modern problems of today like AIDS, single
parenthood, poverty, violence, racism and sexism. Islam is the way of life
that continues to remain suitable because the values and prescriptions
are timeless and universal.
