Title : IslamiCity

Description :
The IslamiCity - Islam and the Global Muslim eCommunity - website is an Islamic portal that provides information on Islam and the Muslim world appropriate for a wide range of audiences. General introductory pages on understanding Islam, the hajj, the pillars of Islam, and Islamic history will be useful for students and others with little or no previous background in the study of Islam. The site also provides more in-depth articles on the Qur'an and other Islamic texts; access to the text of the Qur'an in Arabic and in translation; and an English translation of an important collection of Hadith (the Sahih Bukhari). Search functions for the Qur'an and Hadith include a search of the Qur'an in six languages and in phonetic Arabic. The site also serves as a resource for the Muslim community, with features like prayer times calculators, a mosque finder, a question and answer section (Ask the Imam), and members-only content. More general news and a host of other content (multimedia, shopping, travel services) will be of less academic interest, but the site's resources, especially the texts provided, remain a useful tool for students and researchers in Islamic studies.
