In the various studies and videos you will find here you see Islam as it is. Frankly the website is a bit weak on the positives of Islam (but they do exist) because I have pulled most such information. I do not wish to contribute to someone making a very bad decision, joining the deen the Islam.
The following is blunt and honest.

Islam: The Modern Religion:
Translation of the Meaning of the Holy Quran and more
"Note that any translation of the Qur'an immediately ceases to be the literal word of Allah, and hence cannot be equated with the Qur'an in its original Arabic form. All translations are considered commentaries rather than translations.
"This is a short beginners course on Islam. If you are not familiar with Islam, this is the place for you. Why should you want to learn about Islam? There are over a billion Mulims today and Islam is the fasting growing religion in the US and in most other countries. A global Islamic society would be a very different world and we must now acknowledge that this is a distinct possibility. Understanding what Islam teaches is therefore very important.

IslamiCity in Cyberspace:
This is another site that is loaded with information about Islam: The project's mission is to use advanced information and communications technologies to provide comprehensive religious, socio-economic and educational information related to Islam to a worldwide audience on the Internet.
The goals are to;
- promote Islam and its values in a positive manner to Muslims and non-Muslims alike;
- use Internet technologies for an efficient means of Da'wa;
- and provide community information services that enhances understanding and communications, both internal and
external, about Islam and Muslims.
As we enter a new century, we are also witnessing a turn of history. There are tremendous global changes taking place. In these ideological, political and informational upheavals are signs and opportunities, as well as challenges for the Muslim ummah to reclaim and restore the Islamic spirit and culture. Many Muslims in America are pious, affluent, educated, and have a great desire to build Islamic communities and educational institutions for themselves and for future generations. Unfortunately, the Muslim ummah in general, and Muslim communities in America, in particular, are divided and often at cross-purposes, resulting in a great waste of energy, time and resources, while opportunities for Islamic renewal and da'wa are being lost.
In view of this situation, As-Sunnah Foundation of America (ASFA) was founded by a group of concerned Muslims from a broad spectrum of Islamic backgrounds and specialties who are striving to promote a) The unity of Muslims, and b) Understanding and awareness through education.
Therefore, ASFA has assembled a group of scholars and professors to teach, write, and translate from traditional sources of Islamic knowledge by authentic scholars of the various schools of fiqh (madhahib).
ASFA's intention is to emphasize the well-known Islamic principle that as long as a believer follows any School of Thought (fiqh), he or she remains within the boundaries of the community (ummah) of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), provided he or she accepts the way of the Sunnah and Shari'ah. This is in light of the verse "and indeed, this your ummah is one ummah and I am your Lord, so worship Me." [Anbiya, 21:92]. Indeed, as Islamic history bears out, the Muslim ummah was never actually divided along the lines of these schools, but rather by selfish, political and national interests. The continuity of these schools provided the basis of stability for the ummah. Like life itself, the Muslim ummah is organically connected with its own geographical space and historical time parameters. When that connection is severed, confusion and division must result, as we are now experiencing as a community in North America.
