Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatoulahi wa Barakatuhu.

I am super excited to introduce you all, If you haven’t already heard of them, to Bukhari Publications.

Dedicated to translating, expounding and disseminating Hadeeth literature in plain English, Bukhari Publications is the first of its kind in North America. In my opinion, The Rolls Royce of Islamic Publishing House’s. Bukhari Publications ‘has been named after the famous Persian scholar, Muḥammad ibn Ismāʿīl al-Bukhārī, who was undoubtedly a leader in the field of ḥadeeth studies.’ Authentic transparent Islamic scholarship: the cornerstone of Bukhari Publications.

Not only does Bukhari Publications run it’s own Islamic publishing house but they also have their very own Academy that focuses on helping people learn how to apply hadīth literature in their social context. You can view their courses and seminars on their website.

Some works from Bukhari Publications consist of:




rethink your world

You can find and read samples and buy of all these and more at:

You can also find these amazing books in and around the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) at:

  • Modah
  • Salam Shop
  • Hijab Fashions
  • The Date Palm and
  • North American Islamic Fashion.

You can also order them online World wide through Amazon.

I absolutely love what Bukhari  Publications does. I love how the books are translated into real time English. Very easy to read and understand. Masha’Allah. Now people who do not read / speak Arabic have the ability to read and learn some of the famous works from the past and gain an obscene amount of knowledge. Alhamdulillah.

My favourite book from Bukhari publications has got to be all of them. There is not one book I did not fall in love with but I have to say the book that personally spoke to me the most was  ‘Rethink your World’ This book really spoke to me Masha’Allah. It taught me how to rethink my world in every aspect of my life. Subhan’Allah.

The Founder, CEO and President of Bukhari Publications is Mohammed Omar Subedar. He was born in 1977 and grew up in the Greater Toronto Area, Canada. In 1990, he enrolled in the Institute of Islamic Education in Dewsbury, United Kingdom, where in 1993 he became a ḥāfiẓ of the Qurʾān. In 2001, he graduated from a seven year program on Islamic Theology offered at the very same institute, earning the title of Scholar of Islamic Sciences and Arabic Literature with a final grade of A. He is now the Imam at Brampton Makki Masjid.

I, myself, have had the honour of working alongside of Shaykh Omar Subedar and have had the amazing opportunity of being a part of Bukhari Publications. Alhamdulillah. I highly recommend everyone to check out their books. They make great gifts, especially for our new Muslim brothers and sisters.

Show Bukhari Publications some love. Please visit their website at and follow them on twitter at @bukharibooks.

I pray Allah continues to put Baraqah in Bukhari Publications. Ameen Thuma Ameen.

Until my next post.

    Wow, thanks writing about Bukhair publications. Ahadith can be very difficult to navigate without a scholar/shaykh to consult, although that’s true of all religious texts. ‘Rethink your World’ certainly sounds intriguing. And yeah, fellow Torontonian! 🙂

    I love these initiatives! I remeber a time, just a few short years ago, when one would struggle to find Islamic Literature, its so heartwarming to see the numerous new publishing houses. May Allah take them from strength to strength. Thank you for this post

    These are awesome to have! I know most mosques get them in bulk to give out, also you can contact publications to get copies. You can get so many kinds, for children, answering specific questions or topics even duas! My favorite is the duas, I think every Muslim should have a copy of the duas, sunnah and also welcome to Islam or get to know Islam sort of books with them at all times, to just pass around 🙂 ( and

    Thank you for sharing! I’m particularly interested in the ‘How to Live the Life of the Prophet’ book – I wonder if these are sold here in the UK – I think they would make lovely Ramadan/ Eid presents. Would you happen to know if they are? x
