 1. Introduction .............................................................. 


    AssalaamOalaikum, 

    It is a pleasure to note  that  there  are  other brothers who have also
    done an excellent job  of  making  information  pertaining  to  Islam  &
    Muslims available on voluntary basis. 

    Each internet guide compiled has  its  own  unique flavor. Specifically,
    CyberMuslim informs us of Muslim  forums  and  organizations on internet
    while Islamic Resource guide emphasizes on the quran, hadith, prayer and
    miscellaneous software packages available. 

    In this section of FAQ, both  CyberMuslim  & Islamic Resource Guide have
    been included verbatim with permission from the authors. Both guides are
    also   available   independently    on    Caltech   MSA   FTP   Site-1-
    (ftp.cco.caltech.edu dir:/pub/calmsa). 

    Jazakallah Khairun.

After attending the Second International Conference on Computer
Technology in Service of Islam in San Jose, CA (April 1992), I decided
that there was a need to compile a list of various computing resources
available to the Muslim community.
 
This resource guide will serve as a listing for software and major
network resources such as electronic mailing lists, forums and newsgroups
related to discussion of Islamic topics.
 
I have limited the scope of the guide to software published in the
English language in order to maintain a focus and keep the guide at a
manageable size. I realize that there are many Arabic language software
packages available. I have consciously omitted them. Perhaps someone else
will pick up the slack in this area.
 
This guide is provided as a free service to the Muslim community, I did
my best to secure its accuracy but in no way do I guarantee its
authenticity. Please do not hold me liable for anything. I would also
like to thank the many individuals that provided me with much of the
information listed here, may Allah reward their efforts. You may
distribute this guide electronically as you wish, but if you wish to
publish it in any print media, e.g. newsletters or magazines, please
contact me first. I will most certainly grant you permission; I simply
would like to keep track of how and where this guide is used. Please send 
any additions, corrections or comments to me via e-mail at
hashem@netcom.com.
 
The latest copy of this guide is available via file transfer (FTP) from
the AMASS Software Library at Boston University. Thanks go to Abdelsalam
Heddaya.
 
Inshallah, you will find this guide useful.
