Whatever assumptions and misconceptions about Islam prevailing among most of the people around the world today are due to lack of proper knowledge. Anti-Islamic ideology through propaganda and prejudiced media through twisted, and sometimes, fabricated news items/stories are relentlessly conspiring to defame Islam for their ulterior motives. Consequently, people tend to assume that Islam is a religion associated with aggression, dogmatism, cruelty and terrorism. The truth is diametrically opposite. This paper is an attempt to highlight a few important characteristics of culture and ideology of Islam. The primary sources to know about Islamic ideology are two. One is The Qur’an and the other is the guidelines given by the prophet Mohammed (pbuh). The trends set by the four Caliphs subsequent to Mohammed’s (pbuh) rule and the detailed guidelines (the fiqh) framed by the erudite scholars of Islam (Imams) for practical purposes and to facilitate the enforcement of Islamic laws are the secondary sources.
