Maktabah Mujaddidiyah has a goal to collect and present free Islamic books in every language of the world. We are continously trying to acquire Islamic literature in many languages, to enable the native speakers learn about Islam in their own mother tongue.

Available Languages

Currently we have Islamic books available in 82 languages of the world. Some of them have very few books, whereas others have hundreds of them.

Most of the languages have very few books, and we are always looking for new and better Islamic literature in such languages.

Arabic has such a large collection of Islamic literature (being the native tongue of Islam), that we have decided to present only important works in it. Other websites provide thousands of historical and contemporary Islamic books in Arabic.

Maktabah Mujaddidiyah is based in Pakistan, so naturally we have access to Islamic books in local languages such as Urdu, Sindhi, and others. That is one reason why we have more books in these languages. It is our aim to acquire working partners from other countries to enrich the contents of other languages.
