The Islamopedia blog has been on the web and blogosphere for many years now. Since its beginnings in 2007 it has published hundreds of daily Hadiths, posted links to articles and websites, advertised events, published notes from talks and served (we hope) to increase the knowledge of its author and readers.
Through this blog we have developed a dedicated band of followers on emails, twitter and facebook who benefit from our posts regularly and we hope to continue increasing our reach via these mediums.
The primary aim of the blog has always been to share the ‘Hadith of the Day’ posts and this will remain the prime objective. We will also continue to share other beneficial material that we think will be useful to our readers.
We are also happy to publish articles and works by other authors. If you would like to publish something that you have produced then please get in touch with us.
