Muslims are called upon to use this month to re-evaluate their lives in light of Islamic guidance. We are to make peace with those who have wronged us, strengthen ties with family and friends, do away with bad habits -- essentially to clean up our lives, our thoughts, and our feelings. The Arabic word for "fasting" (sawm) literally means "to refrain" - and it means not only refraining from food and drink, but from evil actions, thoughts, and words.
IslamQuest was first introduced in “The Year of the Great Prophet”, on the day of Mab’ath, in three languages – Farsi, Arabic and English.
The objective was for the website to be a reference for Islamic questions on the internet.
The first version of the website was designed by talented and religiously devoted Iranian youth.
