Welcome to Looh Press! Your one stop shop for all Islamic & Somali Studies Books.

ABOUT US

 

Great selection of Islamic Books Classical and Modern 
Looh Press Ltd. aims to provide an excellent selection of Islamic books from the classical works as well as most popular modern books written in various subjects. We stock three main languages; Arabic, English and some Somali in the Islamic genre books.

 

AFRICAN STUDIES BOOKS:
We have recently launched an additional section for African Studies books and are working on expanding this section. Initial objective is to stock and sell general African history and biographical works and then further expand on that. Please email us for any suggestions you might have for this section,

 

ARABIC BOOKS:

We specialise in sourcing the most academic and thoroughly edited works in the Arabic language. The specific sub-genre we focus on is in the field of;

  • Tafsir (exegesis); modern and classical works,

·       ‘Aqida (Creed/Theology); with special focus on the classical Ash’ari, Matarudi and Athari schools of thought, as well as modern critique.

·       Fiqh (Jurisprudence), with special emphasis focus on Shafi’i fiqh text books and encyclopaedic reference works,

·       Hadith; Classical hadith works with scholarly critique,

·       Other genre; Sira/Shama’il (prophetic biographies and characteristics), Tarikh/Tarajim (History and biographical encyclopaedias), and other books.

Usually we stock pristine and brand new books with scholarly editorial publications but sometimes there are few titles that might be short of that parameters or otherwise second hand copies. However we clearly and easily point out these deficiencies wherever applicable.

 

 

ENGLISH BOOKS:
The books in the English category are in Islamic studies field but written in English. In some print and copies there are dual languages which will be advertised as such. There is also few prints that are cheaper books because the publishers photocopied the original prints, which are also pointed out in the description of the book. However the overwhelming stock are of pristine and brand new, printed and published by some of the world’s largest publication houses.

          

 

SOMALI STUDIES BOOKS:
We also stock and sell books in the field of Somali Studies. This means academic and research papers on and about Somalis in the English language, and sometimes in dual languages. These are various subjects such as; History, Culture, Art, Poetry and Politics.

 

 

AF-SOOMAALI BOOKS:
In this category we stock and sell large number of books written in the Somali Language. The sub-categories are; Novels, Stories, History, Culture, Art, Poetry, Politics, Children books, Learning Somali Language tools and many more.

 

 

LOOH PRESS PUBLICATIONS:

We also publish books in Islamic and Somali Studies, specialising in English and Somali Languages. Please consult our publication section for further details.

 

 

TRUSTED PUBLISHERS:
In the left hand side you will a list of Publishing houses names with their logo’s scrolling up. If you click on anyone of them it will show you all the books we list under named publisher. We also regard them as some of the best publishing houses out there (with some of them enjoying less popularity and accuracy as others).

 

 

OUR AUTHORS:
Below the TRUSTED PUBLISHERS section there is a similar list of names of some of us regular authors, be they classical or modern ones. The names are ordered alphabetically. So for classical Imams and their names such as Ibn Daqiq al-‘Id are listed under ‘I’ as Ibn. While the imams of early generations such as  Imam Abu Hanifa, Imam Malik, Imam Shafi’i, Imam Ahmed, Imam Bukhari and so on are under ‘Imam’. Others like al-Arna’ut, al-‘Izz, al-Dhahabi or all the usual popular titles are organised under the first letter after the ‘al’. So al-Arna’ut will be Arna’ut al, Shaykh Shu’ayb.

 

 

POPULAR TEXT BOOKS:
In this section we have list titles that are popular because their frequent use in academic and study circles. These titles also enjoy enumerate commentaries and as such instead of searching them endlessly, we have eased the process whereby you click on the title and all the prints, commentaries of said title will be shown. So for example if you are looking for all that we stock on al-Arba’in al-Nawawiyah (the forty hadith compilation of Nawawi), a mere one click on the title will show all results regarding that title.
