Islamic Faith Basics
A Message from the Muslim Faith Advisor

One should be mindful not to judge another, as faith is between a person and God. One must always think good of another; it is essential.

We encourage all Benedictine community members – students, staff and visitors – outside of the Islamic faith to review this information to help in our larger mission of promoting mutual respect and understanding for all religious groups represented on campus. 

This website serves as a primer on Islam, its traditions and sensitivities. Please note that it represents an overview of mainstream Islam only and that there may be other schools of thought or variations of details within the religion not mentioned here.
