Assalamu Alaykum,

Dedicated Book Section Here

This section was previously the "Hajj & Umrah Packages" category which was not used at all. It's now been changed to "Books"

Please post downloadable or online Islamic books here.

Please post each book as a new thread
This is so if an index is created, it can easily be done using topic titles as each book.

If there's other topics with books, please PM me so I can move it here. Authorizers please feel free to move previous posts with books into this category.

Jazakumullah

Salam,

If the book is in a different language (other than English). Please put the language in capital letters inside brackets similar to:

Book title (ARABIC)
Book title 2 (URDU)
Book title 3 (+ARABIC)

The plus in book 3 indicates that it's a book in both English along with Arabic

This will help also help the index when added in the near future inshaAllah.

PS. Credit for this section goes to a suggestion by the member 'aaa' who request a book section similar to the Halaal Videos. That was too much work but it did inspire this section which will prove just as useful inshaAllah.

Wassalam

The books category will go live here soon
www.muftisays.com/books.php

All the data on that page is retrieved from this forum category and from the first post only. Books submitted as replies will not show up.

It must be in the first post.


Authors can be posted in the following formats:

Author: NAME HERE (letters and hyphens only)
or
By NAME HERE (letters and hyphens only)


Pages can also be stated as NUMBER followed by the word pages. e.g. "25 pages"


Simple really.


InshaAllah once there's a larger collection, further categorization can be done such as by language, by letter and maybe with a simple search feature.

Jazakumullah

MashaAllah a very good selection of books now.

Is it worth having a search feature just yet?

I think it could wait as a glimpse does the job at the moment.

I haven't checked the home page yet, but maybe there should be a dedicated subsection for the books so people are aware.

Jazakallah for everyones contribution.

Jazakallah
Links added main menu and top menu

If another "latest update" is available, inshaAllah the latest books can be added to the other "latest" blocks on the homepage.

Both are fine. On the books page, it'll show up as a html icon.

If you have a book to upload, attaching it will make it viewable to members only so try using the open drive account we made. For username and password, please send me a PM.

www.opendrive.com/ (I had to add this link here to enable hotlinking)

Microsoft SkyDrive is maybe a better option.


Microsoft SkyDrive has 7 GB free storage vs Opendrive 5 GB storage.

Microsoft SkyDrive has (free) 2 GB Large file support vs Opendrive has 100 MB File Size and 1 GB/Day Bandwidth.

Opendrive has limited 200 KB/s Speed.

Skydrive has Edit online at the same time as others vs Opendrive allows 1 User.

Skydrive also has Get a link to copy and paste, Online viewing for Office files, View and edit online for free and Track versions.

Skydrive allows you to sign in with your Hotmail account.

Jazakallah. Does it allow hotlinking? As in direct download?That was the main reason as viewing online is not the best option with handhelds.
