An Outsiders Perspective on Islam: Conventions

October 21, 2006

I will try to use few conventions in this work. One that you will notice almost immediately is the addition of (pbuh) or (pbut) after the names of the Muslim Prophets. This is short for “peace be upon him/them” and is a common show of respect for the Prophets. As it is my hope to educate myself and to do this with the same respect I would show any religion, this honorific will be used throughout this work.

Also, there are a number of alternate spellings for many of the Arabic words. I will try to keep with one throughout this work.
