The UK ISLAMIC ACADEMY caters for the academic and educational needs of Muslims in the West. The Academy is committed to the production of standard Islamic literature. Responding to the priority for producing works for Muslim children, the Academy has initially brought out a number of books written in Islamic terms of reference for Muslim children. The Academy proposes to carry out special studies on Hadith and Sunnah with a view to producing such works which may dispel misconceptions about Islam in general and these disciplines in particular. In pursuit of this aim, the Academy plans to publish works by both classical and modern Muslim scholars in the Western idiom.
