About Navigate Islam

Our Vision And Mission

Navigate Islam is a site designed to provide some of the best video answers available online to faith-shaking questions about Islam.

After paying attention to all of the videos on this site, viewers should be more able to:

  • Know why Muslims have conviction in Islam
  • Convincingly clear a good number of misconceptions about Islam
  • Be intellectually vaccinated against misconceptions and confusions regarding Islamic teachings
  • Be prepared to successfully understand and manage differences of opinion within the Ummah
  • Appreciate the importance of proper methodology in deriving religious opinions
  • Be equipped with the necessary self-confidence to practice Islam with a reduced degree of bias
  • Demonstrate mutual respect and positive partnerships within a plural society

We aim to keep adding videos and blog posts to this site every week so make sure you bookmark us and subscribe to our newsletter to be sent a notification whenever a new video gets added!

We aim to reverse the inferiority complex Muslims face when ill-equipped to handle the storm of confusion and misconceptions surrounding Islam and Muslims. Navigate Islam believes that this inferiority complex is removed by providing the tools for thought and well-researched responses to the most common questions Muslims face in their lives. Without good answers, a Muslim often succumbs to despair or frustration rather than embracing their relationship with their Creator and the rest of humanity.

Most people now seek their answers through Sheikh Google or Wikipedia, sources that may not always be authoritative when it comes to Islam. Indeed, it is known that several seemingly Islamic sites have been set up purely to propagate distortions and harmful untruths. This initiative is thus, first and foremost, a resource to solve real problems of understanding and conviction in the ummah (Islamic Community) rather than to provide deep academic studies.

The best way to study Fiqh is to differentiate in a balanced way between the divine revelation and the human understanding, the fixed principles and the variable fatwas, what should be taken literally and what could be critiqued, and matters of true consensus and matters of different opinions. This book does exactly that.
This is an excellent piece of pedagogy, made in a simplified yet a very accurate, very illustrative, and very comprehensive way. I sincerely greet everybody who participated in producing this course and teaching it. May you be blessed.
