An Online Islamic Library

This project is a new endeavor by a few Muslim students to develop an online repository for all the Islamic books, texts and manuscripts. Following are some of the objectives this project is aimed to achieve, along with the requirements for that:

Aims and Objective

  • To catalog all the Islamic books freely available on the Internet.
  • To put more Islamic books online, specially early authentic manuscripts and classical texts.
  • To diversify the knowledge of Islam by presenting books in every language of world.
  • To allow users to be able to create personal libraries, where they can create personal copies of the books and make notes in them.
  • To assist researches to take notes and create references to books as well as individual pages.
  • To present all the stuff free of cost, to all users, and always. This project will only catalog and host free books, which either have no copyrights, or the copyrights allow free reading. Most of the Islamic content remains free today. But we will also focus on purchasing the copyrights of valuable books, for the benefit of readers.
  • This project is open to books related to any sect, school of thought or organization related to Islam. But we will not allow any books that contain hatred, and try to create differences among Muslims.

Requirements

Funds

This project requires financial support in order to make it a realistic online Islamic library, where users can browse, search and read Islamic books, as well as create notes and references for their personal use or research.

We request you, whether a person, organization, company or government body, to donate to this project. We specially request those Islamic organizations which aim to promote Islamic books, to fund this project and promote the Islamic knowledge in all languages of the world. Every human being, whatever language he/she speaks, deserves to know about Islam and its teachings. This is the place where this objective is to be achieved.

Volunteers

This project fully depends upon volunteer work from the people who really want to achieve this objective. Hence we request you to work for us. Whatever field you specialize in, you may prove yourself to be a valuable asset for this project, and the Islam.

 

History

Maktabah.org was started on 6th November 2008. The domain name maktabah.org was registered in a hurry, as no other proper domain name existed for this purpose. Maktabah is an Arabic word meaning library.
