hi! I am new to this site, and I look forward to learning about Buddhism as I find it very fascinating and that it inspires me, but I just want to know, is this site only for Buddhists? because I am a progressive muslim

Welcome sinan. Good to see a muslim here.

Maybe you're interested in meditation. It can be non-sectarian and will deepen the practice of any religion.
My first formal meditation training was with Shunryu Suzuki in the 60's and later with Kobun, Robert Aitken and many other teachers (mainly zen). However, I've spent the most time practicing on my own, which is all I do now. I'm living in a rather isolated area so I miss connecting with other practitioners. Despite my interest in zen I've made an effort to remain secular. You can visit my website at http://www.frogzen.com
