Dear Omar,

It is good to hear one more voice of a Muslim. Could you explain us what you meant by saying
"Learning about Islam is a difficult thing both for Muslims and Non-Muslims. " I can't imagine a Muslim could describe Islam as a difficult issue. We Muslims don't have many books, our messenger is not divine person, we don't regard him as a God, We don't have an amorphous concept like trinity. So, what is the difficulty?

In my opinion Quran is so pure, simple, and clear that it captures the hearts easily. Otherwise, Muslims should need a facility like church where some people declare themselves saints and overrule some the rule of God according to their agenda. You know some Muslims give fatwa but it is not compulsory.

The difficulty doesn't come from understanding of Islam. Being a Muslim or acting according to Quran is really difficult. That's why our messenger is called as big Jihad. Non-Muslim are not interested in practicing Islam so there is no difficulty for them.

At the same time, I don't recommend any Islamic or non-Islamic website for any reason. I left people to choose where to read. Of course there is no harm to recommend any website but it seems to me telling people where the buy a bread. If they are hungry they will get it anywhere they want.

Best Regards
Nuray
