The present reference tool, which is a humble attempt to place before the English-speaking Muslim children, contains a number of basic Islamic teachings and concepts. Primarily aimed at the children of age ten (10 years old) and over and presents topics in an easy-to-use alphabetical format. It also covers a wide range of topics and features cross-references which draw attention to related subjects. Given the fact that some of these Islamic teachings and concepts have been forgotten by many Muslims and given the fact that some of them have been given wrong definitions or interpretations by some non-Muslims, either deliberately or out of ignorance. An effort has been made here to present these teachings and concepts in their true light and clear picture. The definitions cover a wide range of concepts as well as some of the well-known Prophets and Messengers of Allah (Peace be upon them all) the significance of certain important Islamic occasions, the benefits of the observance of certain practices and a short biography of the four rightly-guided caliphs who helped shape the destiny of the new faith. Even though the present reference guide is designed specifically for Muslim children, readers and students off all ages and different faiths who wish to learn more about the world's fastest-growing religion will certainly find it enlightening and highly informative.

Grounded in nine years of ethnographic research on the al Muhajiroun/Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaah movement (ALM/ASWJ), Douglas Weeks mixes ethnography and traditional research methods to tell the complete story of al Muhajiroun. Beginning with three core events that became a primer for radical Islamic political thought in the UK, Al Muhajiroun, A Case Study in Islamic Activism traces the development of the movement form its incipient beginnings to its current status. Based on his extensive interaction with the group and its leaders, Weeks contextualizes the history, beliefs, methods, and differences between ALM/ASWJ, al Qaeda, and the Islamic State so that the group and the threat it poses is comprehensively understood.
