An Introduction to Islam PDF Print E-mail
Dennis Wholley meets Imam Hassan Qazwini, leader of the Islamic Centre in Dearborn, Michigan, to discuss the fundamental beliefs of Islam, and remove any misconceptions the general public may have. Many non-muslims have the idea that the Islamic clerics and leaders are hostile and unapproachable, however Dennis Wholley shows that the Islamic leaders (Imams) are normal people like you and I, striving for a better future for upcoming generations.
Imam Qazwini starts the conversation by talking about the meaning of the terms "Islam" which is translated to mean "Submission", and "Muslim" which is translated to mean "One who submits". Qazwini then goes on and gives an example of Prophet Abraham(pbuh), in which the Quran states was a Muslim, in the sense that he submitted himself totally to the way of God when sacrificing his son Ishmael (or Isaac according to the Jews).

Hassan Qazwini then goes on to talk about 5 fundamental principles in both sects of Islam (Shia and Sunni), which are "Shahada"(Declaration of the Oneness of God, and that Mohammed is God's last messenger), Prayer, Fasting, Charity and Hajj. 

Imam Qazwini then gives Islamic Perspective on 3 predominant issues which arise between inter-faith debates, these are: Creation of God, Sources of Good and Evil in the world and Heaven/Hell.
 
Qazwini finally concludes the discussion by condemning the people who have "hi-jacked" Islam, and use it to their own personal benefit and gain.
