Note From Us
The catalogue now in your hands testifies to our declared objective of coming out with good books on Islam for the English speaking readers. Many new titles have been lined up, and these are not a regurgitation of the familiar subjects on Islam flooding the bookshelves of Islamic bookshops. Most of the over hundred books listed in this catalogue are a result of painful editing and reformatting. Such tedious process to ensure only good books make their way out of us has not been of help in fulfilling our publication schedule. Hence releasing a title is not a bi-weekly or monthly affair for us. For these reasons, unlike many other large publishers, including Islamic publishers, our catalogue did not grow in bulk. Yet, we have almost steadily gained a reputation for our quality books at affordable prices–exactly the agenda we had in mind when we first started. One thing that distinguishes us from the rest of the publishers in Malaysia, as well as many other publishing houses around the world which specialise on Islamic subjects, is our concentration to what is known as ‘slow moving’, ‘serious’ books on history, contemporary politics, law and religious sciences. Neither have we paid too much attention to one particular thought of the Muslim scholarship. Our titles are not attached to any particular sect or scholar: sitting next to each other in this catalogue are works of scholars whose followers would not talk to each other because of their sectarian differences. This year’s catalogue not only gives the complete list of our publications, but also introduces readers to the scope of our work, current projects and topics covered. A book is not only judged by its cover; it is sometimes judged by its author. With that in mind, we have included short biographies of various authors, in the hope that readers will have a better understanding of the works we publish. You will also find in this catalogue a new category called Malaysian Interest. Being a homegrown Malaysian publisher, we cannot avoid books which deal with topics that have a local and regional flavour, in spite of them fitting in one of our other categories. These books have now found a new home and we hope to add more into it so that scholarly local or regional works can be presented in a way that they also can cater for the international audience. As we publish more books from a variety of topics, we hope to introduce more categories that will cater for specific interests. More updates on our publications can be found on our website and online bookshop, We also hope you will introduce us to relatives, friends and colleagues. On that note, Happy Browsing!

Know the Author

Abdullah Yusuf ‘Ali (1872-1953) is most famous for his monumental English translation of the Qur’an, The Holy Qur’an: Text, Translation and Commentary, later published, printed and distributed on an unprecedented scale. Born in Gujrat, India to a Bohra family (a mercantile community in India), Yusuf ‘Ali belonged to both East and West, had an abiding faith in the British, acting as a publicist for the Allied cause. In his childhood, he became well-versed in Arabic, and later went to an English school. At 19, he obtained a first-class degree in Classics and that won him a scholarship to England, where his relationship with the British Empire began. He wrote extensively on social, political and historical issues, as well as articles and reviews on Islam, in various journals. But it was his translation and commentary of the Qur’an now available in countless editions which stands out as the most widely circulated work of twentieth century Islamic scholarship. Despite his public acclaim, Yusuf ‘Ali died a lonely man, according to his biography, Searching for Solace. He was found on a cold winter as a confused old man outside a house in Westminster, England. The police took him to a home for the elderly, but days later, on 9 December 1953, he died of heart attack.

One of the Muslim world's most well-known converts, Marmaduke Pickthall is also remembered as the first Englishman who was a Muslim to translate the Qur’an into English, The Meaning of the Glorious Koran. He was also a prolific writer on the issues that concerned Muslims during his lifetime–Turkey, India, Islam–as well as a novelist and short story writer. Born into a devout Christian family in England, and whose father was a clergyman, Pickthall converted to Islam, declaring his new faith in dramatic fashion after delivering a talk on 'Islam and Progress' on November 29, 1917 to the Muslim Literary Society in Notting Hill, London. When a propaganda campaign was launched in the UK in 1915 over the massacres of Armenians, Pickthall rose to challenge it and argued that all the blame could not be placed on the Turkish government. At a time when many Indian Muslims in London had been co-opted by the Foreign Office to provide propaganda services in support of Britain's war against Turkey, Pickthall's stand was considered one of great integrity and courageous given the war climate. He enamoured of the Islamic world by living and working in India. Pickthall died on May 19, 1936, and is buried at Woking, England.
