Keep up with the latest in Arabic and Quran with Studio Arabiya!

​Islam is one of the largest religions in the world, boasting just under two billion adherents. It also holds the distinction of being the fastest growing religion in the world. Studies suggest it will have surpassed Christianity as the leading faith by 2070. But despite the ever-increasing number of Muslims, Islam remains arguably the most misunderstood of all religions. This is particularly true in the West, where Islam has been wrongly associated with terrorism and other heinous crimes. Even in Middle Eastern countries, where Islam is more often than not the national religion, the laws and teachings of the Quran are sometimes misunderstood. They are misinterpreted, if not intentionally maligned, to justify the questionable antics of the country's leaders. In this article, we're going to be looking at common mistakes made by Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Here are ten misconceptions about Islam.

Sha'ban comes immediately before the month of Ramadan and serves as a connection between the two sacred months of Ramadan and Rajab.There is a range of reasons why Sha'ban holds great importance in Islam and Islamic parenting and why it is an anticipated month by the community (Ummah). Let us understand this importance and how this month can be favorable for every Muslim. 
​Monotheism is the most important aspect of the Islamic faith. It is the very foundation upon which all of the religion's teachings are built. If one does not believe in a singular God, they cannot possibly consider themselves to be a Muslim, no matter how steadfastly they hold to other pieces of Islamic doctrine. Despite Islam's belief in a single God, the Quran uses a plethora of names to refer to Him. The most prominent of these names is, of course, Allah. However, most leading Islamic scholars point to an additional 99 names used to refer to Allah throughout the Quran and Hadith. In previous articles, we have discussed 50 of these names in detail. This article, the third in our series, will examine an additional 25 Names of Allah according to the Quran in an attempt to provide a definitive compilation and dissection of each. Let's get started!
