Talha Mujahid

The fundamental goal behind the foundation of Darussalam is to present the Noble Qur’an and Ahadeeth of our beloved prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in their original and easy to understand way. The books published by Darussalam are designed in the best possible way that enhances the interest of the reader. These books contain the authentic content from the sacred sect of Salf As Saliheen under the light of Qur’an and Sunnah. Authentic references, latest trends of research and sect free publishing makes Darussalam significant in this field.

Darussalam came into being in 1992 as the result of efforts by Abdul Malik Mujahid. Currently serving the seekers of Islam in four (4) continents with zeal and zest, Darussalam has become a world famous Islamic publisher in 15 years by adopting the latest trends and technology. They are using all types of channels including print media, electronic media and information technology to spread the true sense of Qur’an and Sunnah. They are specialized in printing Qur’an, Tafseer, History of Islam, Ahadeeth and other Islamic literature. Darussalam also focuses on publishing the books for children and young seekers of Islam.

Translations of Noble Qur’an: To spread the true knowledge of Qur’an, it is a must to translate Qur’an in all major languages of the world. Darusalam started this project and till now has translated Qur’an in more than 25 languages. The prominent ones include English, French, Urdu, Spanish, Persian, Hindi, Pashto, Sinhala, Russian, Chinese, Bengali and many other languages. In addition to this, more than 600 Islamic books in English have been published, making Darussalam a market leader. A short but comprehensive Tafseer of Qur’an named, “Ahsan Al-Bayan” in Urdu has set new records. Another Tafseer named, “Ahsan Al-Kalaam” has been published by Darussalam, which was highly welcomed by the masses.

Seerat Encyclopedia: It is an honor for Darussalam that they have published the highest number of books on the noble life of Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him). Until now 64 books have been published on this topic in different languages. The latest publication, “Al-Lulu Al-Maknoon” (Seerat Encyclopedia) in Urdu is a big success and a milestone for the Muslim Ummah.
