About The Islamic Publishing House

عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللّٰهِ عَنْ آبَائِهِ(‘a) : قَالَ جَآءَ رَجُلٌ إِلىٰ رَسُولِ اللّٰهِ فَقَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللّٰهِ مَا الْعِلْمُ؟ قَالَ أَلإِنْصَاتُ. قَالَ ثُمَّ مَهْ؟ قَالَ أَلإِسْتِمَاعُ. قَالَ ثُمَّ مَهْ؟ قَالَ أَلْحِفْظُ. قَالَ ثُمَّ مَهْ؟ قَالَ أَلْعَمَلُ بِهِ. قَالَ ثُمَّ مَهْ يَا رَسُولَ اللّٰهِ؟ قَالَ: نَشْرُهُ.

Abu ʿAbdillah narrates from his ancestors(‘a) who said the following: “A man once came to the Messenger of Allah and said, O’ Messenger of Allah, what is knowledge?’ The Prophet replied, ‘It is silence.’ The man then asked, ‘Then what?’ The Prophet said, ‘It is listening.’ The man asked, ‘Then what?’ The Prophet replied, ‘Then it is remembering.’ The man asked, ‘Then what?’ The Prophet said, ‘Then it is to practice (according to what one has learned).’ The man then asked, ‘Then what O’ Messenger of Allah?’ The Prophet replied, ‘Then it is to disseminate (what one has learned).’2

Established in early 2001, gaining inspiration from the above quoted statement from Prophet Muhammad (S), the Islamic Publishing House has developed into Canada’s premier publisher of high quality Islamic literature for Muslims of all ages. Our mission is to ensure that the authentic teachings of normative Islam — in all aspects of life — as exemplified by Prophet Muhammad (S) and his immaculate family, the Ahlul Bayt (‘a), are made available for everyone in a clear and easy to understand language.

Over the past several years, we have been fortunate to publish 30 full length texts which have been distributed throughout the world in print; released 7 ePublications; and authored hundreds of articles - all thanks to the blessings of Allah (SwT), the grace of the Prophet, and the Ahlul Bayt (‘a) and the continued material support from donors all over the world.

With the ever changing landscape of how and where we consume information, we have embarked upon the creation of what we term, ‘Visualations in which we fuse together audio, video and the written word to develop a unique educational experience – videos which are uploaded to our YouTube channel, ShiaTV and other platforms – garnishing over one millon views to date.

Our publications and video productions are all financially supported by the generous donations of individuals and non-profit institutions in North America and Europe, for whom we are eternally grateful.

As we continue to produce English publications and unique and original video content, we continually appeal to all of those people who have a passion for the spread of the faith of Islam, as taught by the family of the Prophet - to assist us in any way possible in promoting the teachings of Islam as taught by Prophet Muhammad (S) and the Ahlul Bayt (‘a).
