Research and Publications Department

One of the main objectives of the Academy is to promote Islamic legal philosophy, and Islamic concept of justice, through production of Islamic legal literature and make it accessible to the members of legal fraternity. Keeping in view the objectives of the Academy, an independent Department of Research & Publications has been established in the Academy. This department is responsible for carrying out research and translation work and to produce Shari‘ah related material.

The Department of Research and Publications has so far published a total of 122 titles which include books, monographs, translations and units of various correspondence courses in Islamic law. A brief overview of Academy’s publications is as follow:

The object of the project is to produce original research works on different topics of Islamic law in order to provide reading material to the students of Shari‘ah, law and other relevant disciplines and also to produce research based original books on issues of the day.
The objective of this project is to produce research oriented booklets on different topics of Shari‘ah/law in Urdu/English. Average volume of each monograph is up to 100 pages.
To provide the common readers with an access to the original sources of Islamic law and to the work of Arab scholars on contemporary issues, the Academy has undertaken its translation programme. The focus of this programme is on two main categories viz. Urdu translation of multi volume reference books and Urdu translation of modern publications of Arab scholars on current legal issues from Islamic perspective. Some significant books of Islamic law were selected in this regard and some of which have already been published, where as work on others is in progress.
