Here is a list of online resources that you can use along your journey. Whether you are a convert to Islam or someone recommiting to Islam no journey is sound without a guide. Not all of us have access to communities that heave the experience or resources to assist people through the process. In the absence of local resources we would like to provide these resources for you. It should be emphasized that nothin replaces a teacher. We encourage all people to find themselves a teacher that they trust and feel has a good grasp of Islam. (Characteritics of a trusted teacher- article)
