|About the Book|
Ahlulbayt Organization (www.shia.es) is a registered non-profit Organisation that operates and is sustained through collaborative efforts of volunteers in many countries around the world, and it welcomes your involvement and support. Its objectives are numerous, yet its main goal is to spread the truth about the Islamic faith in general and the Shia School of Thought in particular due to the latter being misrepresented, misunderstood and its tenets often assaulted by many ignorant folks, Muslims and non-Muslims. One of its goals is to digitize and post on the Internet quality Islamic Shia literature, this way you know about this faith from its adherents, not from those who feel it threatens, perhaps undermines, the shaky foundations of their beliefs. Topics its publications and other types of information tackle are: history, especially Islamic history, law (Sharia, Islams legislative system), practice and society as the Islamic faith wants them all to be, with emphasis on the beliefs of Twelver (Ithna-Asheri) Shia Islamic School of Thought. In other words, our message is directed to the open-minded people, not to fanatics, extremists or close-minded people. Our purpose is to facilitate the dissemination of knowledge through a global medium, the Internet, to locations where such resources are not commonly or easily accessible or are resented, resisted and fought! In addition, Ahlulbayt Ltd. aims at encouraging scholarship, research and enquiry through the use of technological facilitates. Our web site anticipates to serve as a modest instrument for introducing Shia Islam to all interested people, again, to the openminded folks. Efforts have been exerted to introduce well-documented materials which meet the requirements of an objective study of this subject which some people, for one reason or another, view as being controversial- we find no controversy in knowledge, in seeking and/or promoting it. Our Internet-posted articles as well as printed books cover articles related to different issues: Islam in general and Shia Islam in particular. Our multimedia tools include: lectures, stories, films (documentaries), TV, Quranic studies, Nahjul-Balagha, etc. Our books cover a wide spectrum of Islamic topics from different sources You can reach us via this email: [email protected] or call us on: +44 020 8798 0406.
