Title : Shia books

Description :
The Shia Books website gives access to online text versions of over 3,000 books in Arabic, primarily related to Islam and Islamic Studies. Despite its name, it includes books in both the Shiite and Sunni traditions. It also has collections related to history and language. The books can be accessed through subject and author indexes or through a search function. Major subjects include: Hadith; biography of the prophet; Islamic jurisprudence; Qur'anic exegesis (tafsir); and men of the Hadith. The site also includes a fully vocalised online text version of the Qur'an. The site is available in Arabic and Persian, but the English version was not working as of July 2008. It will be of most use to advanced students and researchers in Islamic or Middle Eastern Studies looking for primary and secondary source material in Arabic. Users should note that the English version of the site was not working at the time of review.
