  1. I recently downloaded the Shamela but the menus and text is garbled (ie not in Arabic). Can anyone help? I download from islamport, version 2.3 which took 3 days.

  2. As Salaamu ‘alaykum, brother Abu Zayd.

    Maybe it has to do with your computer’s language settings. Depending on your system, go to your system’s language options and change the language settings to Arabic. In Windows XP and Vista:

    1) Go to “Control Panel” and open “Regional and Language Options”
    2) Change all the language related list boxes to Arabic (the one that is most important is the language for non-unicode programs which is found in the last tab in XP while in Vista it is in the Administrative tab labeled “Change System Locale”. In any case, change all available language-related options to Arabic and restart your computer. Inshaa’Allaah that will fix your problem.

    Note: In case you can’t find the language Arabic in some of the lists, you will need to install them from your Windows CD.

    If after the restart the problem still persists, you can try downloading the software from the official link which is provided in this blog, and this is the link which the developers’ website has posted.

    If even after downloading and installing this version the problem still persists, you can try contacting the developers’ website for more support. The following link is a page on the official website that contains many links related to the Shaamila:

  3. alhamd lil LAH,SWT, This is a great feat. i believe it will be best if thousands of it s soft copies are given to libraries for an OFFLINE DATA BASE with the instructions.setveral works had (still does) found the ways to poor countries this simple way. PLEASE THINK ABOUT THIS! FROM THE HADITH”BALLIGUU ANNI WA LAW AYAH” Thnx

  4. Wa ‘alaykumas Salaam wa Rahmatullaah, haroun.

    I am afraid I’m not aware if it is available on CD. You can use the download if you have proper means to do so.

    Was Salaam.

  5. Assalamu alaikum,

    Please I’ll be glad if you will send me a copy of the Maktaba Shamila on CD plate or DVD as the case may be. May Allah bless all your effort. My postal address is PMB 102077, FAAN Makurdi Airport, Benue state, Nigeria.

    the pack will help me tremendously in d quest of seeking knowledge and for me to know the religion well and in turn you will be answering the call of the prophet who says “BALLIGU ANNI” Juzeetum Khairan wa Kufeetum Sharran.

    AlhamduLillah,

    Muhammadu Auwal T.

  6. Wa ‘alaykumas Salaam wa Rahmatullaah, dear brother.

    I would have loved, from the bottom of my heart, to send you not only one copy but tens of copies only if I could. But I’m really sorry to say that I don’t have good means to send materials to the outside of my country.

    For the current time, I recommend that you either ask a brother in your location or an Islaamic center to check if they have it; or, you could download it from here as explained above in the post.

    Was Salaamu ‘alaykum.

  7. Marhaban

    I am trying to install al-shamila to my computer. Before final installation the following instruction appears and says
    من فضلك حدد قواعد البينات
    I appreciate if someone could help please!

  8. Ahlan wa sahlan, Himmet.

    1) When you install the package, choose a location to extract the files to. Let us assume you extract it to X:\Folder

    2) Then go to X:\Folder and run the file “setup.exe”

    That should go without any problem.

  9. Assalamu Alaikum.
    Do u any one know how to install shamela in linux? am using ubuntu 10.04.
    Jazakumullahu Khairan

  10. Wa ‘alaykumassalaam wa rahmtaullaah, brother.

    I received your comment early but was busy installing Ubuntu on a virtual machine on my Vista to try it myself before answering. It seems that I need more time to download certain packages so I will give you the suggestion and you try it:

    Try installing the software Wine for your Linux and then try running the Shaamila through it. I saw on the Shaamila’s blog that these last versions can be run using Wine:

    http://www.winehq.org/

  11. assalamu alaikum,
    may allah bless u brother for doing this service for the muslim ummah.i would be grateful if u could upload the maktaba shamila latest version,i have download all the version in this website.

  12. i practical muslim but cannot be able to purchase islamic books because lack of finance i want to downlord but cannot do it what is ubutu

  13. Assalaamu ‘alaykum, dear brother jibril.

    May Allaah reward you and grant you steadfastness on His religion. Brother, you don’t need Ubuntu for using the above the software. I was explaining something for the brother who asked before you.

    Please follow the steps in the post above to download and install the library.

    Wassalaam.

    You can also download Arabic books from:
    http://www.almeshkat.net/
    http://www.waqfeya.com/

    And English books from:
    http://www.kalamullah.com/

  14. our connection is too low,so if possible send ARABIC MAKTAB SHAMILA 3 by email.
    May Allah reward you.

  15. Assalaamu ‘alaykum, brother.

    If you mean the library itself, it is too huge to be sent by e-mail (789 MB). If you mean the update, you can download it from this link:
    Update

    Plus, if your connection is slow, you can use the torrent method. Sending it by e-mail will not make the situation any better but rather worse.

  16. Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah!
    Please i need help from anyone who could assit me. I downloaded Maktaba Shamila and everything seems to be ok but when i open it i can’t read anything because all the arabic writing changed to some kind of symbols which cannot be read,i don’t know what is wrong.
    Please any assistance whatsoever is highly appreciated.
    Shukran.

  18. Well, this library is only for Arabic books. Check kalamullah.com and islamhouse.com for English titles.

  19. Alhamdulillah i was able to install shamila on my computer, but there seems to be one problem and that is when i try to search any particular text in any particular book the search dosent seem to start, can anyone please notify me as to how i can overcome this problem? Jazaakallah

  20. Assalaamu ‘alaykum, al-‘abd.

    You can search an open book by clicking on the icon in the toolbar that reads “بحث في القرآن الكريم\ الكتاب الحالي” and then enter the search term(s) you like.

    You can search single or multiple books at the same time by clicking the on the binocular icon titled “بحث”. Then select the book(s) that you like to search in, by checking their checkboxes and then type in the search term(s) you want.

  21. Salam alaikum warahmatullah I did all the steps in to getting this software but the problem is when I go to library I dont see setup.exe im at the last step in getting the software but I dont see this setup exe can you help me jazakullah khayr

  22. Wa ‘alaykumassalaam wa rahmatullaah.

    Brother as it is illustrated in the image when you open the Library folder it should contain the Setup.exe file and three folders along with it. If you see the folders but don’t see the Setup.exe file then it could have been deleted by an anti-virus software falsely.

    You could try extracting the file again to another location and if the anti-virus asks to delete the file ignore it. If you still don’t see the Setup.exe file then try it on another computer to see if there is the same problem. If there is not then it could indicate that there is a problem in your computer.

  23. Assalamu alaikum wrwb,

    I would like to ask if there is aversion that can run in android smart phone or Android Tab or Ipad?

  24. Wa ‘alaykumassalaam wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh.

    Actually this program is in (.exe) format and can normally only run on Microsoft Windows. I don’t think you can find an alternative to it on a mobile device like the Android or the iPad.

    What you can do instead is to download books that you want to read in PDF format or TXT or any other format and read it on those devices. It is better than nothing.

    Barakallaah feek.

  25. salamu alaekum brother
    i almost send a message to you for guiding me to install this program,but fortunately for me I do the installation my self through the illustration given above.جزاكم الله خير جزائه فى الدنيا و الإخرة

    muhammad tariq

  27. Wa ‘alaykumassalaam wa rahmatullaah.

    Well, just follow the steps described above to get what you asked for.

  28. i want to download the part 26 and 27 and 28 of the maktaba tu shamila or the most latest version of which contain more than 5111 books if you can guide me.i will be obliged to you of your this kind action.

  29. I don’t know about a version which has 5111 books. This version is only 1800 books. You can use the links above to download. There is also the 8333 books in the other post where you can use the links to download them.

    Sometimes, the links may not work temporarily. In that case, try again at a later time.

  30. Assalaamu ‘Alaikum waRahmatu(A)llaahi waBarakaatuh
    Just came home after Fajr Salât-ul-Jamâ’ah.I wanted convenient download without some registration process which I encountered last time I tried to download Shamela.

    May Allaah give us Tawfeeq(Allâh’s special grace) of learning ‘Ilm(Knowledge of Deen(Religion)) as well as ‘Amal(Acting upon ‘Ilm)

    If a person grows in ‘Ilm, and his greed of Dunyâ also increases, such a person is hated by Allaah more and more, and he becomes away from Allaah more and more.

    Akhi. you did a great job. Allah bless you.

  32. asalaamualaikum can any one provide me information about can i use the sahamila on my phone and if itr is posible then in which phone model it can be used adn from where i can get the maktaba

    jazakallah khair
    maa’salaam

  33. Assalamu ‘alaykum sister Zaynab.

    In order to to change the language of your Windows system, go to the Control Panel (which you can find in my computer or the start menu) then open the Regional and Language Options. Then change all the language options to the language you want.

    If your question is about having difficulty viewing the conents of the library, simply enable support for Arabic in the Language Options in the Control Panel which I pointed to above.

  34. Wa ‘alaykumassalam ‘Ali.

    I have already written a post about the Maktaba Shamila for mobile phones. Visit that post and you will find that all the books are available as text files in zip packs. All you need on any mobile phone is simply a text reader with Arabic support to view any of the books.

    Insha’Allah I will update that post or write a new post about this issue in the near future if time is available by Allah’s will.

  35. Wa ‘alaykumasslaam wa rahmatullah brother Ahsan.

    I have not worked with converting PDF files to BOK before and honestly don’t know how it can be done. It depends on the nature of the PDF file that you want to convert.

    For the time being, forgive me for not being sble to provide more information but I can recommend searching for it in the Shamila forums or in Google.

  36. Sir,
    I’m glad that I’m reading your maktaba shamila,
    Sir,
    Here is One problume that Setup file in Labrary Folder is infected with virus and a Avast antivirus isrunning in my computer so he was not accept this file.
    please inform me about this problum as soon as possible.
    otherwise reply me any other web that I’ll downloading this file.
    with regards.

  37. Mr. Naman,

    This has been reported to me before. However, at best guess it is simply a false positive warning from Avast. I have scanned it with Avira AntiVir and it finds no virus in it.

    If you are not feeling safe about installing it, you can instead download the other version from the following page:

    http://shamela.ws/index.php/page/download-shamela

  38. salam
    dear brother . i install shamaela in my laptop. i changed the languse from control panel but i could not read now it is grabled.i am using windows 7.
    CAN ANY BROTHER SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.JAJAKALLAHO AHSAL JAJA.

  39. Asalam Alykum,
    my copy of the “setup.exe” seems to be infected and corrupted, i would be grateful if i can given a link to get it downloaded or probably mailed to mailbox address

    Jazakallahu Khairan

  40. Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullah, Lawal.

    If the setup.exe file is detected as having a virus inside it according to Avira or some other antivirus, I highly think it is a false-positive (meaning that it is not really infected). If still you don’t want to run it, you can download the latest setup file from this link:

    http://d.shamela.ws/downloads/upgrade3.42.exe

  42. ALHAMDULILLAH…I HAVE INSTALLED SHAMELA & I OVERCOMED FONT PROBLEMS BUT WHEN I OPEN SOME BOOKS LIKE عمدة القاري شرح صحيح البخاري IT SAYS
    “الكتاب غير موجود وينبغي حذف اسمه من غرفة التحكم”
    WHAT TO DO ….PLZ HELP

    جزاكم الله خير جزائه فى الدنيا و الإخرة

  43. I liked all books included at Al-Makataba ul Shamila , but there is some deficiency of books regarding some science subjects like Physics chemistry , Biology , English Grammar as wll as Medicine / Medial and spiritual books of Imam buni , amam razi , Aflatoon , suqraat , etc.

  44. Dear brother,
    can you give a suggestion about the link to Shamila forum?
    another thing: I want to export several books from shamila into independent .bok . How to do it?
    thank you

  45. Brother the following website is completely dedicated to the Shamila:

    http://shamela.ws/

    Regarding export, open the Shamila. In the toolbar containing different icons, click the icon which reads “تصدير الكتب” which is in the form of a blue arrow pointing to the left with two small documents. In the dialog box that opens, select as many as you need and specify that you want to export them in .bok.

  46. as-Salamu ‘alaykum,

    Brother, I currently use Shamela on Windows XP, but I wanted to buy a new laptop that comes pre-installed with Windows 7 64 Bit Home Edition. Does the Shamela program work properly on Windows 7 64 Bit Home? Or Does it only work on the 32 Bit version of Windows 7?

    Also, do you know if there are any plans to release it for Linux and Mac OS X?

  47. As Salam u Allaikum

    Dear Brother

    I have just installed Maktaba Shamila But it language is not read able. I think it requires a particular font or language plug-in. Please guide me where to download it.

    I am using Windows 7 home Premium 32 bit.

    Regards.

  48. The following error message appears when I click on ” tarqeeh hai “, 6th option on the menu bar. under it – I clicked Ctrl+U. At this point I get this message :

    Run-time error ‘372’;

    Failed to load control ‘FileDownloader’ from . Your version of may be outdated. Make sure you are using the version of the control that was provided with your application.

    Please help. – Jazakallahu khair.

  49. Assalaamu alaykum,

    Is it possible to download all of the books from the Islamport and Meshkat all at once rather than individually??

    JazaakAllahu khayran

  50. Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullah brother.

    When I first read your comment I decided to consider it later because I didn’t know the answer right away. I just checked through the official Shamila website and there doesn’t seem to be anything about it. However, I have read reports from users about successfully using it on Windows 7. I don’t really know about 64 bit. I hope it works without problems. As for Linux, you can try running it with Wine, or with an application called Thwab that is made to import Shamela .bok books. For Wine, you may Google how to add support for Arabic fonts. I haven’t used any of these myself.

    As for Mac, I do not know of any version for it. However there is a group that say they are currently working on converting the format of the Shamela books for their free iOS application iShamela and that they aim to make an app for Mac, for Android, and for Linux in the near future insha’Allah. Here is their website:

  53. @ Afroz:

    Well, try clicking on the menu item itself rather than pressing Ctrl+U. If the problem is still there, try installing the VB runtime files:

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/vb60pro/Redist/sp5/WIN98Me/EN-US/vbrun60sp5.exe

    Microsoft support pages say that error 372 occurs when you install an application for a certain user only, then you run the application from a different user on the same computer. May be you can try re-installing the application on your user.

  54. Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullah, Wali.

    I don’t know of a way to download ALL the files the at once. You can, however, do this:
    1. Install a download manager like Gigaget.
    2. Then download the Firefox extension FlashGot to link Gigaget with Firefox.

    3. Then you visit the IslamPort website. Open the section of books you like (e.g. أصول الفقه).
    4. Right-click an empty space. Choose FlashGot All (Ctrl+F3).

    5. A dialog box will pop up from Gigaget allowing you to choose the files you want to download.
    6. Deselect everything except for the rar files.

    There you go, you just put the entire section of أصول الفقه on download. Do the same for the other sections.

  55. Assalam u alaiku

    Barakallah feek for sharing the website. I like the design and insha’Allah I will navigate through the contents more when I have time.

    @ Atta Muhammad
    Wa ‘alaykumassalam brother. For the language issue, please look at the above comments. Other people have asked similar questions and I have tried to provide answers above.

    And this is the upgrade: http://www.almeshkat.net/books/archive/books/upgrade.exe

  59. @ Anwar
    There is no official iPad version. There is, however, an application called Shamela in the App Store and they are trying to develop it further and port more books into it. Maybe you could try that out.

    Another option is to export the Shamila book that you want in .txt format and read it on the iPad using a txt reader. If you search in Google, you’ll see that there is also a collection of Shamila books in PDB to read in iSilo on iPad or iPhone.

    @ DANA
    I’m sorry I haven’t tried Shamila on Windows 7 but I think other people I know have installed it without problem. Maybe it is an administrator issue?

    @ Sulaimon Shaheed
    I’m sorry I really don’t have a good idea about which Arabic learning service is the best at the mooment.

  60. The search function of my المكتبة الشاملة is somewhat broken can someone help?for example I try find some hadith eventhough I know it is there but the software do not show any result

  61. Maybe you are not doing the search properly. To search for a word (or words), you must first select the books on the left-most panel (by checking individual books or selecting the whole collection, but making sure that the book names are checked), and entering the search words on the right panel. Then do the search.

  62. أحييكم تحية الإسلام
    السلام عليكم والرحمة
    بارك الله فيكم على هذا العمل الصالح وجزاكم الله عن الإسلام والمسلمين وفقكم الله عز وجل لتوسيع هذه المكتبة النافعة ولمزيدها في المستقبل

  63. وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله.

    وفيك بارك الله. أسأل الله عز وجل أن يوفقني وإياك إلى ما يحبه ويرضاه عنا.

  64. Can you tell me the licence for the books contained in the database – we would be interested in making them available in a different format for disabled and blind Arabic speakers in the middle east

  65. That is an interesting question.

    I would have a hard time believing that the the Muslim scholars were worried about the content of their books being made available to as many people as possible. They would actually endorse it outright. The last they would have on their mind is the money. Plus sharing Islamic knowledge among Muslims has always been a sacred obligation.

    The only real issue would be with the companies that publish their books (i.e. for the modern writers). But again that would be when some other company would just want to make money out of publishing it again. Again I would have a hard time believing that they would be worried about somebody converting the book into a .bok or .txt format for other Muslims to benefit from.

    So, for the purely Islamic books in the library in this post, I wouldn’t worry about redesigning them in a different format and making them available for people with special needs. Plus, you have all the right to ‘sell’ this work because you are putting effort into it by doing the processing and conversion.

    As for the other books in the library that have to do more with general literature, history, or others, I really cannot speak on that. Maybe you can consult the original owners and designers of this library, at the following address:

    http://shamela.ws/

  66. Many thanks – we would be making the books available in Braille and Daisy format (a talking book for the blind) our partners will follow up with the original creators to make sure that all are happy with the library being made in this way

    Al Hamdulillah, i installed the shamila, i currently using windows7.
    but i cant complete it. because i cant find “the option of extended support for eastern languages”.
    now the fonts are some icons only.please help me ,
    and i didnt find upgrade option in library page.
    please assist me
    i will be thank full to you.

  71. Asslamu alaikum : Please help me with the procedure to follow to download recent Maktabatul Al-shamilah or any way that you can help me to get it. Lillahi i want to get it on time. [NATAMANNA LAKUM KULAL KHAIR]

  72. Assalamu alaikum. Jazakumullahu Khairan. I have long had problem with the non- Arabic language appearing in my installed Maktaba. It is today I found this comment you suggested for someone- date: March 14 2009-. I followed it and it help me so well. Now I can access everything I want to have in The Maktaba, everything is now displaying Arabic. I am very very Happy. Jazakumullahu Khairan. May Allah absorbed you in Jannatul Firdaous. Assalamu alaikum.

  73. Assalamu alaikum, when I was adding new books using the first method above, I mistakenly uncheck all boxes except one just to try the download. But when I came back to download all, I couldn’t see those I unchecked. please what is the way out?. Jazakumullahu Khairan

  74. @ Muhammad Hashim:
    Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, akhi.

    When you open the dialog box for updating “الترقية الحية”, does it proceed to display a list of books or does it get stuck on the screen waiting for an internet connection? If it persists on that, maybe you can try closing/opening the Shamila and trying again?

    If it still doesn’t work try installing the latest update to the Shamila at this link:

    http://d.shamela.ws/downloads/upgrade3.44.exe

    On a side note, if you really seriously need any of the books, you can download it individual at the shamela.ws website and import it into the library.

  75. Assalm dears, i have download the shamila liberary into my PC and after that i have extracted the file, when i start the file it is in Turkish language, i m not familiar with Turkish language,
    kindly anybody who knows about this software, tell me how to change the software language into English, send me information on this ID ziaudin88@yahoo.com immediately, in advance thanx,

  76. @ zia:
    Wa ‘alaykassalam wa rahmatullah, dear.

    I believe you mean it is in the Arabic language. This software is not meant to be in the English language, and all the books that it contains are in the Arabic language. If you want to see the Arabic properly follow the steps in the comment above.

    If you want English books, you can find a lot at site like:
    http://www.islamhouse.com
    http://www.kalamullah.com

  77. Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullah, kamoludeen.

    As far as I know, there is no other free library out there. I would, however, wonder at what else would somebody need from a library? The Maktaba Shamila provides an excellent set of features.

    By the way, the official Shamila website says that they are currently redesigning the entire library so that it can run on Windows, Mac, and Linux and so that it would run faster. So you may keep a look out for that.

    Plus, if you need individual books, you can always download them from:

    http://waqfeya.com/index.php

    http://www.islamhouse.com/

    Or search through Google.

  78. Assalamu alaikum! i want the reseach of Shaikh albani(silsalhtul sahi wa zaeef ) in software( not in pdf etc) so kindly help me if it is available. i wana see which ahadiths are sahi or zaeef. any one help me .
    jazakullah.

  79. Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullah, m badar.

    This is as-Silsilah as-Saheeha in (.exe) format:

    http://www.alalbany.ws/alalbany/books/ebooks/exe/albany_sahiha_exe_ebook_01.zip

    This is as-Silsilah ad-Da’eefah in (.exe) format:

    http://www.alalbany.ws/alalbany/books/ebooks/exe/albany_daefa_exe_ebook_01.zip

    But the Maktaba Shamila makes it very easy to search for any Hadeeth you want in all the books of Shaykh al-Albani and not just the two above, so I recommend that you use the Maktaba Shamila instead.

  80. Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah. jazakullah for ur kind rply. but problem is that, that i am none arabic(Ajami) and i have very very low level of understanding with arabic. And i want whether a specific Hadith is Sahi or Zaeef (at least). i am downloading maktaba shamila as well but i heard that this in only Arabic. Kindly Help me. jazakullah.Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah

  81. Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.

    In that case I would suggest that you try improving your Arabic more and more, since it is very important in learning the sciences of our Deen.

    In the meantime, can also try searching through the IslamQA which is a big Fatwa website whenever you have a certain Hadith in mind and perhaps you may find the answer to the subject there.

    Simply follow the steps in the post above on how to download and install Shamela. You don’t need WinRAR.

  85. Salaams brother – do you know or have you tried loading Makthab As Shamil on a tablet (I-pad, Galaxy, Blackberry) etc? would be inerested to know if it works?

  86. Asalaam alaikum.

    I have upgraded my shamela from 3.42 to 3.46 …

    Problems: Cant open it even though it shows the version to be 3.46

    upgraded it to 3.42 again (but still showing the new features)…

    ( Iam only able to open it from the (programs files) section and not from the icon at the desk top…

    CANT ADD BOOKS ANYMORE…

    plus the settings have changed …the following procedure:

    Now go open the library itself. Click the menu item “شاشات” then click the submenu item “استيراد ملفات“.

    is now different….

    Any suggestions bro?

    wasalaam and bless.

  87. Wa ‘alaykassalam wa rahmatullah, brother Mohamed.

    There are unofficial ways to do that (I myself have tried it on iOS devices). But the method is mainly about using exported text files of the Shamila and reading them by a txt reader on any of those devices. There are ready packs on the internet where people have exported each set of books in the Shamila into a zip package of txt files which you can download and read on your device by a txt reader.

    The above method obviously lacks almost every feature that the real Shamila offers. The official website (shamela.ws) says that they are currently working on making the Shamila available for other devices (like Mac, Linux, iOS, and later others) so insha’Allah we will be waiting for that.

  88. Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullah, brother Hussain.

    Most likely, you opened the update file in the wrong place. When you download the update file, you have to put it in the directory where you have the main files and folders of your Shamila. After putting the file there, then you open it.

    So, I would advise that you put the update file (3.46) in the main directory of your Shamila folder and then run the update file there. Insha’Allah this will fix it.

  89. @ Mohammad
    Well, maybe you can try extracting the files on a faster computer and then transferring them by an external HD to your computer? The results would pretty much be the same.

    The only way to get the files is extracting the contents of the zip file that you downloaded, so I believe there is no other way.

    Dear fellows , I am much happy that u introduced such sort of Islamic software, I left question but u people did not reply.
    1. Is it possible that Al Maktaba al shamila menu , sub menu and command may in English language so that many people may comprehend and understand.
    2. I have some Arabic books in pdf , doc and rar format, is there any way so that I may include / add into Maktaba al Shamila software after or before installing 8333Library. exe. file .

    please reply me as soon as it may posiible.

  92. Dear Muhammad Abdul Rauf, here are the answers:
    1. As for changing the menu items to English, I believe that is not possible.

    2. As for including books in pdf, doc, or rar format, that also is not possible. You can, however, download .bok books and include them in the library after installing it.

  96. @ Ameen:
    Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullah.

    The Shamila allows you to choose a standard font for viewing the content of the books. So only one font is used throughout the whole text, and it cannot be possible that you have a different font for different parts of a book.

    For this reason, I believe that you may have a problem with your system language settings of your computer. You can try the steps mentioned at this link to correct that:

    http://shamela.ws/help.php/page/33

    If that doesn’t fix it, please try to specify what exactly is not showing right.

  97. @ Ahmad
    Avira has been giving this alert for a long time now. I don’t believe that such a website with such a problem would really have the intention of injecting some evil code in their user’s computers.

    It is a false positive Avira is giving. You can prevent it from annoying you by adding the shamela.exe file in the bin folder to your Avira exceptions list.

  102. Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullah, brother Ahsan.

    I personally do not recommend that you download the 8333 version because it is not an official version. Furthermore, you should really think about whether having an extra 2000 books or so is really useful for you not.

    Anyways, here is the link in case you want to download them (it is on MediaFire, fragmented into 26 files):

  112. Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.

    May Allah reward you for your intention, and may He show you the correct path to obtain correct knowledge and spread it for the sake of Allah.

    Sister, if you want to become a Da’ee, that is wonderful. Your first step is to get a good foundation of understanding Islam, first to instill a firm and knowledge-based belief in yourself, and then to be able to spread this to others.

    If you have scholars in your area and if it is possible for you, I would highly suggest that you ask them to start giving you lectures on basic sciences of Islam. I also recommend that you benefit from this website:

    http://www.islamhouse.com/

    As for CD of Shamila or lectures of Ahmad Deedat, I cannot provide that in CD because I live in Iraq. But you can download the Shamila library from this link:

    http://www.archive.org/download/ShamelaLibrary_20101109/ShamelaLibrary.rar

    Please note that this library is only useful if you already have good background knowledge of Islam and also good understanding of Arabic.

    dear admin:
    thank you for this library. i have advaned my understanding of my religious duties with proofs so much. i have since tried to download tese books and share them with my brother, but now my virus founder saids that it has a virus and will not let me upload. and i have been advised not to try and upload. so is it me and my computer or is there some truths in this virus warning?

  121. assalamu’alikum,
    dear admin, i am doing a case study on maktabah shamelah, it is being widely used nowadays and i am a very big fan of this…my case study’s objective to inspire ICT based Islamic learning among Muslims…
    as part of my case study, i need a basic bacground of Maktabah shamelah like when this software built, whose enthusiasm worked to come up like this kind of software, what was the main objective of maktabah shamelah when newly opened up for all, what is the role now and what is the future target of maktabah shamelah and so on…..

    please, i have been searching and searching and searching to know the organization behiind this, or the history behind this but didn get any….only got the objective in ‘anil barnamiz’ in software help option..but few more things i need to know as i mentioned…so,if you kindly let me know those a bit, that could be so kind of you…
    jazakallah

  122. also amount of books now in the latest version, and the first version when it was newly built..

  123. Assalamu ‘alaykum, salid abdus-salam.

    What are you trying to upload? If you are trying to upload the Maktaba Shamila then there is no need to do this because you can already download it from many online servers. If, however, you are trying to upload individual books then again there is no need to do this because the books are available for download at:

    http://www.shamela.ws/

    So just give your brother the link to the site above and he can download the books there. As for the virus warning, if your antivirus is Avira then this is a known issue and it is a false-positive. This means that there is no real virus but Avira is thinking that there is a virus inside the application, and this doesn’t really have any weight because the people who built this Maktaba Shamila are building an Islamic software and the content of the software testifies to this, so how can they think about putting a virus inside? This doesn’t make sense. So just ignore Avira on this warning.

  124. Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, Sanaullah.

    I myself cannot provide these accurate details because I don’t know them. But you can ask these questions at the official website of the Maktaba Shamila which is this:

    http://www.shamela.ws/

  126. bismillah
    thank you for your info. i did’nt mean that i was trying to upload anything. what i meant to say was once i have saved the files and then extract them or run them my avg virus want let me do anything but delete it. i am not all that good with computers but i do ok. if anyone can download it and foward it to me that would be fine with me and know that you would be helping a brother help brothers who really want to take advandage of this knowledge. i am now trying to open these files . i am sure that the brothers that started mektabah are not putting a virus. but that what i keep getting everytime i try to download.

  127. Go to AVG’s settings and put Maktaba Shamila in the exclusion list for scanning, i.e. so that AVG doesn’t scan Maktaba Shamila or doesn’t recognize it as a virus. You can learn how to do this in AVG’s help documentation.

  128. A very good and advantageous site.please we shall appreciate minimisation of the maktaba shamila to the fit mobile phones.

  129. Asalamu’alaykum:
    May Allah bless you for this site.
    I recently downloaded Shamela but I can’t seem to add books to the program. Whenever I download a book (from the Shamela website) I can only open up the file on its own rather than in the Shamela program. I followed the directions listed above and on the official website listed here:

    http://shamela.ws/help.php#7

    but to no avail. After I hit the lightning rod to add a book, the program says I successfully added the book, but when I search for the title, it’s not found.

    On the other hand, books that are included in automatic updates are able to be added to the program.

    Second: During installation, a few sections (e.g. ‘Aqeedah’) were corrupt and did not install. Is there anyway way to download that entire section or do I have to choose each book from the website one at a time?
    Thank you

  130. Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullah, brother NHUSAYN.

    As for the book importing problem, may the program does in fact add the book but it is being categorized in a different category in the book list? When viewing the book categories dialog box after adding a book, try scrolling down to see if the book is in a new category. Also try re-starting the Shamela after adding the book.
    If none of these things work, maybe you can try re-installing the Shamela? It is weird that an error occurred during installation of the program. You can also review the steps for adding books at this link:

    http://shamela.ws/help.php/page/21

    As for the ‘aqeedah books, if these are not installed at all, you can just use the automatic update in the program and just select the entire ‘aqeedah section for the books to download. If, however, the old books are not in the automatic update, then probably you need to all the books one by one. But an easier way to download them is to visit this link:

    http://www.islamport.com/isp_eBooks/aqd/

    and use a download manager like Gigaget to download all the rar links on the page. You can use the FlashGot extension for firefox to directly send the links to Gigaget to download them.

  131. Aoa.
    I seem to be having some problems here.
    when i downloaded the rar file and extracted the files from within, there was no option for installation. These are the files that were extracted.

    when i click on the “shamela” application, the program starts running…. however, the arabic options are not showing. I believe this is because my computer is unable to comprehend the language even though I am using the option of “arabic language”.

    please let me know what i am doing wrong here.
    jazakallah.

    Well, if you mean that the language interface of the software is garbled then try fixing it in Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Support for Middle Eastern languages and other similar options to enable support for Arabic language programs.

    If you mean something else please clarify.

  143. Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, brother.

    As of now there is no official version of the Shamila working on Mac. It has been many months now that the official website of the Shamila has stated that they are working on developing a faster and improved version of the Shamila working universally on Windows, Mac, and Linux. So far they haven’t released it.

    For now you can use the online version of it.

  149. Another problm brother i added a kithab in .bok format. But it showing when try to view the book الكتاب غير موجود و ينبغي حذف اسمه من غرفة التحكم pls help me

  150. @shameer
    Assalamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullah, brother.
    As for converting a book into .bok format, I don’t know how to do that. You may ask the Shamila forum about it.

    As for importing books, I have explained it in the post above so please read it there. As for deleting I believe it is from غرفة التحكم panel.

    You can try looking for your desired book in .bok format on the http://shamela.ws/ website so that you don’t get this headache.

  151. Asalam o alaikum ! i want to know that are there all the sihhah sitah available in this library and also history books like tabri , tabqat ibn saad e.t.c

  153. Wa ‘alaykassalam, syed.

    I think you don’t need any other books software after the Maktabah Shamila. But there are exe collections of many books which you can find by searching in Google.

    Sunan Abu Dawud is present in this library. Just download the software in the above post.

    You can download the book in PDF format from this link:

    You can download the English translation of it from this link:

    You can download its commentary in Arabic in PDF format from this link:

  158. @ mohamed ali

    Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullah.

    When you add the book, open the book list dialog box, and type the name of the book at the bottom text box to find it.

  159. @ md. jaber hossain

    Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullah.

    Well, at what stage does it show that? In the zip file or after installation? Try changing your system locale language from the Regional and Language options dialog box in Control Panel.

    Also try re-downloading the file.

    how can i remove unwanted books from shamela and how add pdf books in shamela other than arabic

  162. Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullah, mohamed ali.

    I don’t know if you can delete books from the program. As far as I know only Arabic books are available for this program.

  163. As salaam alikum brother… I have downloded the free version of shamela from google apps. Please let me know how can I download the 14000 books version of shamela for android tablet. I am using micromax tab.

  164. Assalam Alaikum akhi,

    JazaakAllaah Khayr!

    Do we have english version of Shamela? or is there any update that some brothers are working on it?

  165. Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullah, brother shoeb khan.

    Up to this date there is no official version for android devices. They released the official version for iOS a few weeks ago, and they may release a version for Android soon.

    Check their website every now and then:

    http://shamela.ws/

    Wassalam.

  166. @ nasr

    Please open Control Panel ~ Regional and Language Options ~ then enable the support for unicode programs. Also try changing system locale to Arabic, which is not needed though.

  167. When I perform step two (extracting the .exe file) no dialog box appears after that.

    I have tried twice so far, it extracts the file (which takes about 15-20 mins) but then nothing. I am using XP. Jazakallah khairan

  168. There is a new version for android from the team behind iShamela the iPhone/iPad version:
    goo.gl/lrqGU

    It has built-in forums for each book, to enable readers to ask/answer questions, discuss topics etc. within the book itself!

    Spread the word!

  169. asslmkm…dear my brother..
    I’ve a problem when I want to open Shamela program, the file “shamela” in bin always detected as virus by AVG Antivirus..
    how I can solve this problem?

  170. @ abdullah
    Brother the Shamila file that you download is a zip archive. Use a zip archive software to extract the files to a certain location that you choose, and after the extraction is complete go to that folder to open the _shamela.exe file to run the software. You can use 7zip for the extraction:

    http://www.7-zip.org/download.html

  171. @ Jinaan Inc

    Jazakallah khair for mentioning the software. Insha’Allah I will add these articles in the future if I get hold of an android device and get to test them myself.

  172. @ Anwar Hussain
    This depends on whether the book was typed with tashkeel (harakat) or not. If it is written with harakat, then you should have a checkbox at the bottom of the text which reads (إخفاء التشكيل). Uncheck this checkbox to show the tashkeel. Look at this image:

  173. @ hafizhullah
    Wa ‘alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah, dear brother.

    This warning by AVG is probably a false positive (this means that the antivirus mistakenly thinks the program contains a virus while in reality it doesn’t). The Shamela group have clarified this in an article on their website:

    http://shamela.ws/index.php/page/false-positive

    To overcome this problem, please open your AVG antivirus software, go the section which deals with ‘Exceptions’, and add the shamela.exe in the bin folder to the list of exceptions so that it doesn’t recognize it as a virus.

    Can you please clarify what exactly is the problem? The links are available on the page and the instructions are written.

  185. @ Frenzy786
    Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullah, brother.

    Well, I really haven’t tried installing the Shamilah on Windows 7 myself. Other people have also reported problems with it. Maybe you can try changing the language and system locale from the Control Panel? Try adding support for Arabic language from the Regional and Language Options in the Control Panel.

  186. @ saalim ahmed
    Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullah, brother.
    Brother there should be no need for WinRAR. You just need to download and run the file and it will ask you to choose a place to extract the files to. Once the extraction is done you can run the _shamela.exe file and the library will open.

  187. @ noufalc
    That is a good idea brother. But I’m not involved in designing/programming the software. The team responsible for it is at http://shamela.ws. Maybe you can send the suggestion to them.

    Jazakallah khair.

  188. Assalamu Alaikum.

    “AbuAbdilla, Do u any one know how to install shamela in linux? am using ubuntu 10.04. Jazakumullahu Khairan”
    answer:
    there is no shamela’s for linux OS.
    but you still can open shamela’s bok’s in linux via “thawab” program.
    you will find it in ubuntu software center. or synaptic.
    anyways ,thawab is not as good as shamela’s but it works :-).

  189. @ indah

    thanks

  195. Wa ‘alaykumassalam wa rahmatullah.

    I’m afraid I don’t have access to Windows 8 to try it myself. Try looking through the help files of your Windows or on the microsoft support base for how to enable support for unicode programs or support for right-to-left languages.

    You can also browse the Shamilah library online if you still can’t get it to use offline. You can access it here:

  200. @ zahraddeen
    Wa ‘alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah, brother.

    It depends on the type of your mobile device. If it is an iOS device (iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch) then there is an app for that in the AppStore:

    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/almktbt-alshamlt/id551207128?mt=8

    If it is an android-based device then so far there is no official version for it but I have come across some apps for that in the Google Store. Search for it and you should be able to find it.

    If it is none of these, then you can put the text files of any of the books you want on your mobile device and use any simple text reader to read the books. Refer to this post for more info:

    The process of downloading and installation is described above.

    As for the language issue if it is present, try to find the option of extended support for eastern languages and turn that on. If it asks for the Windows 7 installation CD, insert it and restart.

    Take a look here:

    http://shamela.ws/help.php/page/33

  214. @ both rabee’a and Anjum

    Wa ‘alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah.

    It depends on which phone you have. There is a specially-designed app for iOS devices:

    http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/almktbt-alshamlt/id551207128?ls=1&mt=8

    And there are many renderings for Android devices available in the Google Play store (search for shamila, or الشاملة, or similar terms).

    As for Nokia devices I am not sure. If you cannot find a specific software for it you can still extract the book as txt files and read them on the phone using a simple text reader. See this post:

    I just thought to help the admin brother in answering to some of the queries.

    ===============

    How to run Shamela Islamic Library (ﺍﻟﻤﻜﺘﺒﺔ ﺍﻟﺸﺎﻣﻠﺔ) in Linux (e.g. Ubuntu, Fedora)?

    I, myself, had tried to run Shamela in Fedora 14 and Fedora 17 a long time ago.

    The major problem, perhaps that’s the only problem, with Linux is that Windows executable (EXE) files are not executed in it.

    Many attempts have been made to solve this issue, and as a result you have Wine (i.e. a Windows program loader) and Crossover.

    I had tried to open Shamela using both of them and found that it opened, but it did not open the way it does under Windows and the way it should. I mean to say that the problem with Arabic letters and correct rendering was still there.

    Since, I think, Shamela is a non-Unicode program, the language for non-Unicode programs [found under Regional and Language settings in Control Panel] selected under Windows should be Arabic. But unfortunately the option, according to the poor knowledge I have, is ‘not’ found in Linux (here Fedora).

    I also installed various Arabic and other Unicode fonts (though they are already installed) but no use.

    Wine and Crossover are still under development and hence, cannot run each and every Windows program.

    ===============

    Shamela for Android

    Yes. There is now an Android Shamela for you. All you gotta do is download it from Google Play or some other websites (e.g. 4shared.com) in APK format.

    The application has good features, but sometimes it becomes irritating.

    Obviously, it won’t come bundled up with those thousands of books. You have to download them via the app or from the link .

    You’ll also need an Internet connection for the app to download some required database to your SD card.

    ===============

    BOK Reader for Android

    Yes. There is a BOK reader app for your Android phone. Just download it from Google Play.

    But congrats yourself if you succeed in opening one. I mean the app is not good, and many would not even be able to open the BOK file.

    ===============

    My self is md sajid khan and I am a graduated but there is a problem that before two days I was trying to download shamila liabrary and I installed but the problem is that in list some file working or some not and I also set language from reginole and setting so please give me any solution that support all books
    thanks in advance

  220. @ Nouredddine, abdulla, Ahnas
    Wa ‘alaikumassalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.

    I don’t have information about whether Shamela works for Windows 8 or not. I can only recommend general advice as for other versions of Windows (including the language problem which has been discussed many times before in the previous comments.)

    If you can’t get the software to work on Windows 8 you can use the online version at this link:

    http://shamela.ws/browse.php

  221. @ m.s.khan
    Wa ‘alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah.

    Brother what exactly is the problem? What operating system are you using? Could you install the Shamela properly? Does the language show properly? Where exactly is the problem?

  222. @ Fauzi
    Wa ‘alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah.

    As far as I know it is not yet officially available for Mac. They mentioned around a year ago that they were working on it. I don’t know if unofficial versions are available for it.

    You can use the online version, though:

    http://shamela.ws/browse.php

  223. @ Muhammad Anwar Iqbal
    Wa ‘alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah.

    Brother I don’t understand your language. If you have a question or comment please put it in English or in Arabic.

  224. @ Shaikh Shees Hassan
    وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته

    Barakallah feek for mentioning those points.

  225. Assalamu Alykum
    I wish to reveal you that I appreciate this site so much. Excellent, keep it up.

  226. @ affan khan nadvi from india

    Brother try to find the option of extended support for eastern languages and turn that on (in Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options). If it asks for the Windows 7 installation CD, insert it and restart.

    Take a look here:

  227. as salaam alaykum brother! can you please send me a direct link for downloading the maktaba onto windows7 without any problems??? jazakallah ahsanal jazaa!!!

    وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله.
    أخي أنا لا أفهم لغة الأردو، هل يمكن أن تتكلم بالعربية أو الأنكليزية؟
    Brother I don’t understand Urdu; can you write in Arabic or in English?

  230. No it will not affect the speed unless you are low on disk space in the first place. Second, if you have a very slow computer then it will only slow down if you run the program and not if the program is not running.

  231. i want to buy nokia lumia 520 windows phone 8.. is it compatibel with maktabah shamilah…what is the best smart phones for maktabah shamilah..

    Please look at the previous comments on this post in which I have discussed some possible solutions for this.

  235. @ mohammad ali raza
    Brother when you extract the zip file it should contain the setup.exe file. If you can’t see that open the _shamela.exe file.

  236. @ Tayyaba
    As Zeeshan has already answered it depends on the speed and status of your computer itself.

    @ Zeeshan
    Jazakallah khair for answering.

    Wa ‘alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah.
    The change that you have to make in the Regional and Language Options in Control Panel is not about the system language or the keyboard language but rather the support for unicode languages, and that is a separate option in that dialog box. Please try changing that.

    Brother you don’t have to install it as a Windows 8 App. Rather just install it as a Windows program (ie on the Desktop) like you would on any other version of Windows.

    I want to ask Brother Admin about those books included in Shamela Islamic Library which have copyright notices on them.

    And how did Shamela.ws get a copyright/patent for Shamela Islamic Library when it still contains copyright works?

    Reply soon, because copyright on Islamic works (especially Hadith books) had been a great issue for me.

    Brother you can check out the website of the developers. They are people on the Sunnah, insha’Allah.

  266. @ mussa ali

    Salam brother.

    Just read the post above and you should understand how to save it to your PC.

  267. @ Shiyas

    Wa ‘alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah, brother.

    I really couldn’t find the system requirements for running the Maktabah even on their website. So I would recommend that you at least download and install it to see for yourself whether it can run on your computer or not.

  268. @ Shaikh Shees Hassan

    وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله!

    Jazakallah for posting that link brother.

  269. @ Shaikh Shees Hassan

    Wa ‘alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah, brother.

    I believe the issue of copyright in terms of Islamic books is mainly a problem when the people who do breach it do so to gain money. In the case of the Shamilah this is obviously not the case. Another issue is that there is no copyright on the original works of the scholars themselves, but only on re-publications done by different printing companies.

    If you want to get a satisfying answer you may contact the Shamela team themselves at this link:

    Wa ‘alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah brother.
    I don’t understand Urdu brother. If you can explain in English it would be better.

  271. @ 1235

    Brother try closing the software and opening it again. Make sure that you haven’t opened the sub-tree of that section alone so that you are seeing only books from that category and that the window is showing all the categories.

    If you still cannot solve it try contacting the Shamela team:

  272. @ Ibrahim

    Wa ‘alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah brother.

    You can download and use Maktabah Shamilah for free without having to buy it.

  276. @ شيخ زاده
    Alright brother. Insha’Allah it will end in khair and may Allah put barakah in it.

  277. @ Elthani Arabson
    Wa ‘alaikumassalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.

    Brother look through this blog and you will find some Islamic java applications.

  278. @ khurram
    Wa ‘alaikumassalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.

    Brother I haven’t seen an Urdu version of the shamela. But you can search for Urdu Islamic books in Google (as .pdf or other extensions) and find many insha’Allah. You can also add books to the shamela and read it there as explained here:

    http://shamela.ws/help.php/page/21

  279. @ SHaikh.Zada

    Wa ‘alaikumassalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.

    Brother just simply download and install the shamela software and insha’Allah it will work. If the text is garbled you can add support for Arabic in the Language settings in Control Panel to fix it.

  280. @ abdur
    Brother I don’t think it is available as an app for Windows 8. But you can download and use it on the desktop just like on other versions of Windows.

    Dear admin, I’ve been searching for the book ‘Musnad al-Firdaus’ by Abu Mansur al-Dailami since years, but no success. I downloaded a book allegedly named ‘Musnad al-Firdaus’ but it was not that book. In fact, it was the book ‘Al-Firdaus bi-Ma’sur al-Khitab al-Mukharraj ‘alaa Musnad al-Shihab فردوس الأخبار بمأثور الخطاب المخرج على كتاب الشهاب’ by his father, Abu Shuja’ al-Dailami.

    I also found some books namely ‘Tasdid al-Qaus’ and ‘Zahr al-Firdaus’ both by Ibn Hajar.

    I know that the book ‘Musnad al-Firdaus’ has been published, as I found referenced to it in Shaikh al-Albani’s works.

    So can you provide any link to the original book ‘Musnad al-Firdaus’ whether published version or handwritten manuscript?

    It will really be great help to me.

    ﺟﺰﺍﻛﻢ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ ﺧﻴﺮﺍ!

  286. ﺍﻟﺴﻠﺎﻡ ﻋﻠﻴﻜﻢ
    Brother admin, I agree with what you said that there were no copyright on the works of the scholars, but only on their republication.

    But why aren’t these companies trying to understand that it is we Muslims obliged to propagate Islam to others, which we call da’wah (invitation), but can da’wah (inviting someone) be with money?

    I know that it takes money to publish those books, but they should not be hungry for money – at least not for educational purposes.

    May Allah guide us to and through His way of mercy and forgiveness, amen!
