Title : Al-Islam : Ahlul Bayt digital Islamic library project

Description :
Al-Islam is one of the more comprehensive Internet sites presently available on Islamic culture and religion. Maintained by members of the Ahlul Bayt Digital Islamic Library Project (DILP), users are able to browse through a wide array of topics ranging from modern ethical issues to historical outlines. Though much of the material is directed towards students or people without a strong knowledge of Islam, the inclusion of easily accessible electronic editions of journal articles, image galleries, and glossaries may make these pages equally appealing to academics and teachers. However, perhaps the site's best feature is the ever-expanding Digital Islamic Library Project, which contains a healthy selection of English articles and monographs. Through the quick links at the top of the home page, one may also access a multi-lingual Qur'an (Koran), as well as documents on Islamic law, and information on textual alterations (Tahrif) in important Islamic primary texts. Users should, however, note two things: first, although there is much useful information here, not all the material available is scholarly in nature, and secondly, many of the pieces are written from a Shi'a Muslim perspective, and hence should not necessarily be taken as representative of Islam as a whole.
