    Price of Printed Copies

    Please note that given the wide variance in shipping cost to different locations, we have not specified any fixed price for the book. For actual price, please get in touch with your nearest contact from where you might want to collect in person (or from where you might choose to mail-order).

    Those interested in obtaining a large number of copies (say, 20+), please send your order request to


    When the idea of printing the book was first mooted, the primary objective was high-quality print production (befitting the content quality) at the lowest possible price. At the same time, plans are also afoot to distribute a large number of copies for free to mosque/public libraries, ulemas, academia etc. For various reasons, this title will be distributed through above contacts instead of established retail/online channels (although we might make some copies available through few like-minded booksellers). These coupled with very high shipping cost (at least to non-UK destinations) make the venture feasibility extremely challenging.

    Please note that all sale proceeds will be used to fund the printing of the forthcoming title (in order that the printing venture becomes self-sustaining).


    All said, the copies are available at significantly lower price (50%-70%) than that of books of comparable print quality.

    Please note that the book has been printed in two colours (with the Qur'anic Arabic typeface and translation in colour).

    Given that this was a maiden printing venture, there are likely to be few shortcomings in the final output quality. InshaAllah, future publications would aim to improve upon any shortcomings.

    This print venture owes a lot to the untiring effort of brother Riaz Shahid (of, who helped arrange and co-ordinate all the necessary printing logistics. Many thanks to all the brothers who have pitched in to help with distribution. Please refer to the colophon page of the book for more acknowledgements.

    Of course, none of this would have been possible without abu Hasan. May Allah (azza wajal) reward him immeasurably and give him taufeeq to continue his excellent work.
