    Assalamu Alaikum, may Allah bless you with good! How well the public gain access to the library, specifically the women and are the books translated or are these all Arabic selections? Will there be an official means to ‘check out books’ or are they to remain at the Masjid for their own(i.e.the books’ security?
    Jazakumullahu Khayr!.

      Wa ‘alaykis-salaamu. We are planning to have regular hours for ladies specifically, in shaa’ Allaah. However, as it is a research center more than a public library, the goal of the project does not include any opportunities to borrow. And the books are in Arabic. May Allaah bless you.

    Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu:
    Would it be possible to post where students of the Quran, who live here in the US, but not in your state can purchase these books and others? It’s very hard and expensive to purchase books from overseas, especially for us sisters. Do you know of organizations that will donate the likes of these books to individuals? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
