Our Story

We live in an increasingly fast paced world.

Acquiring knowledge is the duty of every Muslim throughout his or her life. However, for many folks nowadays juggling work, family and social commitments, this is becoming a lot tougher. The sheer scope and depth of Islamic scholarship is unmatched by any other faith, and yet the amount of time that we tend to get for reading and studying these jewels of knowledge sadly reduces by the day.

However, authentic Islamic audiobooks in English authored by knowledgeable and practising Muslims are not easy to find as you can see from the selection available at Audible. In fact, it could even be argued that they hardly exist at all! With this in mind, we launched Islamic Audiobooks Central.

Our audiobooks are platform independent and optimised for all common devices – mobile phones, tablets and computers. You can therefore listen to, enjoy and learn whether at home or on the go. Our aim is to provide top quality, authentic and professionally narrated Islamic audiobooks in English so you can learn first hand what Islam’s true sources contain without having to disrupt your normal routine.

We have a kick-off plan to record around a few dozen books covering the major Islamic genres, such as Aqeedah (beliefs), Fiqh (Islamic Law), Islamic History and the Seerah, Qur’aan and Tafseer, Hadeeth and Sunnah, Islamic Education, Children’s books and Islamic Fiction for both adults and children. However, we are prioritizing da’wah books since they are relevant to the widest audience being aimed at non-Muslims and Muslims alike.

Our ultimate goal, after Allaah’s pleasure and His reward, is to reach the point where we can release several Islamic audiobooks every month inshaaAllaah.

We have decided to provide all of the audiobooks absolutely free of charge on our website. However, in the future, we might have to sell select audiobooks if we are not able to fund the production ourselves.
