The interface is accessible in a number of languages including Persian, Arabic, English, and French, and some of the content varies depending on the language chosen. Most of the articles are related to Islam, Islamic sciences, and society, but general news, Iran and other topics are also covered. The virtual library provides searchable online texts of over 7,000 books in Persian, 3,000 books in Arabic and 3,000 books in English, most of them related to the Islamic sciences. The Persian library also includes Persian literary texts. The libraries are navigable by subject or through a search function. Major subjects include: Islam; the Qur'an; Hadith; hajj; biography of the Prophet; Islamic jurisprudence; Shiism; and Imam Ali and the Ahl al-Bayt (members of the Prophet's family).
