I request you to listen to the lecture series by Sheikh Anwar al Awlaki, especially the life hereafter series. This Sheikh is unique. You will miss hugely if you don't listen to him. The audio lectures are available online for download at
The Hereafter (some 20 hours in length)
Lives of the Prophets
The Life of Muhammad (SAW) Makkan Period (around 20 hours)
The Life of Muhammad (SAW) Madinan Period (more than 20 hours, part1 and part2)
Abu Bakr As-Siddique his life and times (around 20 hours)
Umar bin Al Khattab his life and times (around 20 hours)
Salman Al Farsi (around 1 hour)
25 Promises from Allah to the Believers (around 1 hour)
Start with The Hereafter series. Those lectures are comprehensive. Once you are armed with the knowledge
of deen al Haq, it will give you much confidence when defending Islam, inshallah.
