About Reading in Islam

Our inspiration for publishing books and reading comes from the longstanding tradition and Divine Writ of reading and writing in Islam. In fact, the first 5 verses of the Holy Qur'an which were revelaed (and are now part of Surat al 'Alaq (96)) mentioned (ordered, in fact) reading and (the teaching of) writing by the pen, and it was due to this inspiration (and may Allah forgive us for saying something of which we know not) that the Islamic world has had such a long tradition of books, reading and writing.

We hope, with the will of Allah - to Whom all praise is due - to be able to follow this tradition and contribute to the enablement of others to follow that which has been ordained in the Holy Qur'an and in the footsteps of those before us who produced an immense body of knowledge and wisdom for us to learn from.
