We would like to bid you a warm welcome to the second edition of Explore Islam, a new quarterly magazine which aims to cover a
broad spectrum of contemporary issues as well as highlighting the life and true message of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
who is revered by Muslims as the final Messenger sent to mankind. It is strange that despite being voted the most influential person in
history (The 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History by Michael H. Hart), and with Islam being the fastest growing religion
in the world, many misconceptions still continue to circulate about the Islamic faith and its most prestigious and most famous personality.
It is a little known fact that Islamic civilisation has played an integral role in the history of Europe, Asia, and Africa. Muslims have contributed
significantly to the scientific and cultural development of humanity.
