At the Bellevue mosque, there are printed copies of this book in the bookshelf in the kitchen (top shelf) along with the “Brief  Illustrated Illustrated Guide to Islam” and “How to Pray” booklets for those seriously studying/learning.

  • For the prayer, these videos are very helpful:
            For those learning how to pray, these videos – tailored for new Muslims -take you “word-by-word” through the different parts of the
            prayer we need to memorize in Arabic, allowing time for you to repeat. This is a way many people memorize the prayer or Quran,
            through repetition.
