Surfing Islamic web sites

Well, Ramadhan is coming to a close and the semester will start in a few weeks. My students will thus start their assignments that will require them to surf Islamic websites. But how to choose which website is the best?

For people wanting simple and more entertaining material, the Deen Show is pretty good.

For people wanting a variety of speakers on different topics, Audio Islam,, Islam way and Islam web are good

For good explanations of the meaning of the Qur'an, Bilal Philips site is good. The talks are short enough not be a burden but with enough detail to make you appreciate the meaning.

For a more detailed explanation, Yasir Qahdi's explanation of Surah Yusuf on Sunnah on Line is excellent ... but it is in 8 parts!

Currently, the most detailed and comprehensive explanation of Qur'an, Hadith and many other aspects of Islam is on Understand Islam. For example, there is a very detailed tafsir of surah Ya Sin. However, he talks for 1h just about two or three ayat. That level of detail is not suitable for everybody.

In short, different people are interested in different things. Once you have found the Islamic web site for you, make the most of it!
