About Us:

Darul Ishaat UK ( House of propagation) was started in 2006 after realising the need and to meet the demand for Islamic books In English.

Darul Ishaat UK is dedicated in presenting to the readers authentic books on wide range of Islamic subjects.   


It is for over 50 years now that Darul Ishaat (Karachi Pakistan) is catering to the reading public. It was my revered grandfather, Mufti Muhammad Shafi, who founded Darul Ishaat wat tadrees some 65 years ago at Deoband in India. With the creation pf Pakistan, that publication office was left behind in India and Darul Ishaat was re-established at Karachi by my late father Muhammad Razi Uthumani, because Maulana Mufti Muhaamd Shafi was occupied with Allama Shabbir Ahmad Uthumani in work on the constitution of Pakistan.

Sayyid Sulayman Nadvi performed the opening ceremony of Darul Ishaat along with Mufti Muhammad Shafi in 1950. my father began publications of books on Islam under the able guidance of Mufti Muhammad Shafi although he faced severe trying circumstances.

Gradually, however, Darul Ishaat gained fame because the promoters were sincere in their intentions; soon more than 450 titles were published.

Fifteen years back I decided to venture in to the translation of English books. The great works f our respected elders were thus made available to the English speaking people who had remained deprived of them. By the grace of Allah, we have been able to publish more than 400 titles in English ob varying topics, translated by different people. Many are on the verge of publication and many more are on the translator’s desks. In selecting these titles we have received valuable guidance from scholars and our elders.

At the same time we have also published translations of Arabic works into Urdu and new Urdu titles, we encourage our respected Ulamas in this regard. Besides, we have not neglected rare and out of print books. Among the books we have published and are under variouse stages of publication are works on religious obligations, like Quran, Hadith, Fiqh, Seerah, Sufism, History, Salah, women’s guidance, like Gift for women and Bahisti Zewar, classical works of Imam Ghazali etc.

In this connection, we have been much encouraged by our friends, patrons, and institutions all over the world. We hope to receive their continued cooperation in this noble cause of disseminating knowledge.
