Duroos (Muqadamat to Dars-e-Kharij)

In book library we have more than 2000 books on different topics, especially books related to Ilm-e-deen & Ijtehad. Books are also issued on membership basis to students.
CDs of all duroos including Asfaar (Philosophy), Bidaya tul Hikmah, Sharh-e-Tajreed (Aqaeed) are available at our CDs library. At many times to fulfill the teacher’s unavailability, different Madaris and students from all over the world get benefit from these CDs.
