Title : Beliefnet.com : Islam

Description :
Part of the Beliefnet.com website, the section on Islam pertains to religious issues and contemporary questions relating to the difficult relationship between Islam and the West. The site consists mostly of journalistic articles and opinion pieces about Muslim lifestyles and religious subjects, often written in response to recent events, or on topical issues such as politics, women in Islam, and so forth. The site also features a discussion forum, and a number of blogs. The material is targeted primarily at the American public, and as such is unlikely to be useful for advanced research; it does, however, include some interesting articles from a variety of perspectives, offering a good source of news and opinion about contemporary Islamic issues, and hence may be of interest to those wanting to learn more about the religion. Some may find the presence of advertisements a little annoying.
