For those looking to take even greater knowledge and inspiration from their study of Islam, there are Islamic audio products with a variety of messages. Some review the primary tenets of submission to Allah, while others are more spiritual and may include prayers, poems, and songs. Scholars such as Hamza Yusuf frequently record their lectures and discussions, then make them available through tapes and CDs.

You may find Islamic audio products on the nature of Islam, problems confronting the religion, and debates within the various sects. A tape such as Islam: Myth or Reality dissects the religion's past and examines current vicissitudes. Products such as Purification of the Heart and Purification of the Soul, on the other hand, are meant to be more ecstatic and spiritual than historical.

How To Get Islamic Audio Tapes and CDs

As you undoubtedly know, religion is also big business. There are hundreds and hundreds of spiritual bookstores and learning centers that subsist through the sale of the aforementioned products. Likewise, you can find just about any Islamic studies product over the Internet.

Some merchandise is better than others. You may find, for instance, that you already know the basics of Islam and have little need for a primer. In that case, you'll want to search for products designed for more advanced students of Islam. At the same time, if you are new to Islamic study, it's worth buying audio tapes that aren't too specialized so that you can follow the basic lessons before moving on to more challenging material.
