Islam is a world religion with followers spread around the globe. Beyond dealing with questions of 'life' and 'after life' Islam encompasses all aspects of daily living. Aside from the specific religious duties, Muslims are also to adhere to Islam's other commandments which concern virtually all facets of personal, family and civic life. These include matters such as diet, clothing, personal hygiene, interpersonal relations, business ethics, individual, familial, and societal rights and responsibilities.

Islam comprises of four elements; principles, moral values, laws and traditions. These are the essential elements that form the religious life of any Muslim community. The principles, values and laws of Islam are derived from the divine revelations in the form of the Quran and the Sunnah. External factors, such as the geopolitical situations and social realities may strongly influence and shape the way a Muslim understands and practices Islam. Muslims must therefore take upon themselves to define and shape their religious life; such an example is to understand one's duty as a citizen and responsibilities towards his country and his fellow countrymen. Islam develops Muslims to be pious and calls upon them to do good and contribute to the general well-being of mankind and the world - 'Love for the homeland is part of one's faith.'

The Quran is the Book of God. It has preserved in its entirety for all time to come. Besides the noble Quran, the second most important book for a Muslim is the Hadiths. By holding the Quran and the Hadiths as a guide, one can attain God's pleasure and be certain that God will guide one to the straight path.

By the grace of God, this book of 360 quotes from the noble Quran and Hadiths is produced to help the reader to understand that the essence of Islam as a religion of peace and humanity. The quotes cover righteousness, forgiveness, opportunities, guidance in life and human relations. These quotes are short and easily grasped and can be even practiced in one's daily life.

This compilation is the work of group of volunteers under the guidance of Eminent Muslim scholars who asked to remain anonymous.
