In the name of Allāh, the most Compassionate, most Merciful

When our journey began with the establishment of the Alawite Islamic Library website in 2010, we followed the approach of knowledge and investigation, whose foundations were laid by the honourable scholar Sheikh Maẖmūd Murhij (may the mercy and pleasure of God be with him) who was one-of-a-kind scholar and religious reference.

We have followed his guidance inspired by his experience in establishing a scholarly religious approach based on documentation and authentication of all branches of knowledge that confirm the deep roots of the Alawite school in the Muhammadan1 truth.

So, Our work was a mission aimed at achieving sustainability of this approach, which Sheikh Maẖmūd Murhij has dedicated his life and knowledge to.

Building on that, we have committed ourselves to make this approach based on trust and credibility to show the true picture of the Alawite madhhab, and to manifest the Alawite identity, which is rooted in the Muhammadan truth, through the adoption of agreed sources and references authenticated by consensus, which in turn fortifies this fact and highlights its characteristics, depth, and originality.

In order to do so, intellectual and virtuous gentlemen of the original free Alawite thought have been contacted.

And so our journey has begun with the honourable scholar Sheikh H̱usayn Muẖammad al-Mad͟hlūm (Tripoli-Lebanon), the author of many books that were supported by the scholars of Alawite thought due to the authentication, depth, solicitation, and knowledge they found in them.

His works include:

And other works that highlight the Alawite identity and refute slanders, and prove charges false of this madhhab2 which has always been plagued by accusation and ignorance.

Then, the journey was continued with the honourable scholar Sheikh Tammām Aẖmad, known for the depth and authenticity of his knowledge, and the matchless religious and cognitive status.

Many studies, researches, lectures, speeches and high-quality literary participation, of which the Alawite library page has been honoured to publish.

The administration of the website also heads for and always welcomes to be the page for all gentlemen of intellectual, scholarly, and religious virtues of the highbrow and renewed pillars of the Alawite thought.

As for what we have or what will be added of books and writings of the Alawite Islamic Library, such as those of Sheikh Yūnus H̱amdān, Sheikh Maẖmūd Murhij, Sheikh Maẖmūd as̱-S̱āliẖ, Sheikh ʻAbd ar-Raẖmān al-Khayyir and other ancient authors, it is part of the unanimous Alawite heritage, and that is why we have undertaken publishing some or parts of them, taking into account the academic honesty required by the scholarly, religious and moral standards keeping communication with the heirs of this rich heritage to obtain the rest of the works and to obtain approval for publication.

The Prince of believers3 has said:

“Whenever you convey a speech, link it to the one who narrated it to you. So if it is true, it would be in your favour, and if it is a lie, the narrator will get the penalty”

  • In view of the spread of sectioning off, distortion and libel in the electronic media, particularly the external disinformation and incrimination campaigns this noble madhhab has been subjected to, and the internal consequences of ignorance, what formed a kind of continuous crime against the madhhab,
  • ِIn order to ensure that this website is an official website based on commitment and authentication, and presents its contents honestly and solemnly,
  • Starting from self-commitment that this website should be a message that counts on truth in highlighting the Alawite identity and thought,
  • Keeping the religious, scholarly, and literary honesty, and the honour that the Alawite intellectuals have given us by authorizing and  entrusting us with preserving their intellectual properties;

We have formulated what should be a legal, moral and ethical basis in dealing with the content of the website, and applies to anyone who extends his hand to the website with the intention of plagiarism or distortion.

And despite the fact that all possible legal actions will not prevent those who have despicable goals and bad intentions from tampering attempts, we consider that the moral and religious statement imposed by the responsible souls is the bulwark that surrounds the contents of the website with care and preservation.

However, we do not prohibit or monopolize the use of content published on this website provided that the academic honesty is fulfilled and that the quotation (for only a few lines) is attached to the link to the original site.
The door is always open to coordinate with website administration.

This website is a great responsibility and working on it is an honour and jihād4 wished by every soul lit with the Muẖammadarn truth and the Alawite walāyah; thanks God we have been lucky to undertake it.
