English-speaking Muslims have a dire need to connect with the sources of Islamic knowledge: the Qur’an and the traditions of Prophet Muhammad and the Imams who succeeded him. Effective translation is one step toward this goal. But without methodical, well-reasoned commentary, an individual text cannot be coherently placed in the larger context of Islamic thought and understood as it was intended. We strive to produce outstanding translation and commentary of these texts to fill this niche.
The Islamic Texts Institute is a 501(c)3 non-profit and has clearance for all its activities from the US Department of State’s OFAC.
To ensure sufficient funding to accomplish our mission and complete the 8 volumes of Usul al-Kafi and beyond, we have established an endowment fund. An endowment of $1 million, will ensure that ITI can cover its basic annual expenses and grow, in sha’ Allah.
We are calling on 10 individuals or communities to endow ITI’s 10 upcoming publications with $100,000 each. We will dedicate that title to the donor(s).
