About ISRA

Conveying the message of Allah to the servants of Allah is the basic reason for raising the Muslim Ummah. For achieving this goal, Qur'an has given some basic principles. A very important principle among them is Hikmah. Hikmah means wisdom and strategy. Wisdom bly demands that the message and call (Da'wah) should be in accordance with the person's surroundings and their mental and educational level. Da'wah should be so appealing that people get attracted towards it and come closer to listen and understand it. To serve this purpose, ISLAMIC STUDIES RESEARCH ACADEMY (P) LTD. (ISRA) has been established under the guidance of Maulana Mohammad Yusuf Islahi, a renowned Islamic scholar and Da'wah expert and under the supervision of his son Dr. Salman Asad, a Islamic scholar and a computer and media expert. ISRA is dedicated to provide authentic Islamic information in the form of Books, Interactive Multimedia CD-ROMs, Audio and Video Cassettes and DVDs. Use of Internet and broadband to deliver this information is also under development. ISRA provides Islamic information in Urdu, English and other languages all over the globe.

We, at ISRA, are dedicated to bring out authentic Islamic literature at the earliest. The work is in full swing and we are heading towards our goal. We need your encouragement and help at every stage.

We, at ISRA, are working with limited resources. This overwhelming project needs a lot of resources. This project is not only a dream which is about to come true, but it is also a call of the time and a duty on our shoulders. We have to perform this duty and obligation; otherwise, we will be in total loss in the life after death.

Completing this project is not an easy job. This needs a lot of resources and support. This also needs team-work. This all could only be possible with the help of well-wishers.

We need your cooperation and encouragement at every stage of this great project. May Allah accept our services, Amin!
