Welcome to Darul Hijrah Books! 

Darul Hijrah is a locally run business in Aotearoa (New Zealand). We are known to be New Zealand's largest Islamic bookstore. We work with over 40 Islamic publishers globally. This allows high-quality Islamic resources to be available right here in New Zealand. Darul Hijrah is an online store; we do hold stalls at events regularly around New Zealand.
Alhamdulillah, from humble beginnings back in 2020, we now stock over 1000 different titles on a vast range of topics! We have books, educational games and learning resources for adults and children. 
 
Our collection has been curated for Muslims who live and/or have grown up in the West. Quite a few of the Islamic publishers we work with are based in Western countries, thus they are aware of the challenges faced by Muslims growing up here as well as the type of material that is relevant to this audience. 
“Are those who know equal to those who do not know?”

- The Noble Qur'aan, Surah Az-Zumar (the Troops), 39:9

Knowledge strengthens our imaan. Having authentic and thought-provoking knowledge of our deen is essential for the development of strong, successful and productive Muslims. The Qur'aan, sunnah and seerah are cornerstones of Islamic knowledge.

Keeping this in mind, the underlying goals of Darul Hijrah have been:

  • to create an awareness of the importance of authentic Islamic knowledge
  • to make good knowledge more accessible
  • to make Islamic learning enjoyable, easy, relatable and inspirational
  • to nurture a love of Islam in our hearts so that we have a strong bond with our Creator

Darul Hijrah is run by a husband and wife team. Our backgrounds span IT, medicine and Islamic studies as well as a lifelong experience in New Zealand.  We regularly consult a scholar in New Zealand to check our work. We can provide you with customer service that is skilled and well-informed as well as tailored to your needs. Please ask us anything - no question is silly! 

Our sincere du'a (prayer) for Darul Hijrah is that it will be a lasting resource for the New Zealand Muslim community and a sadaqah jaariya for us too, ameen.

Final tips:

  • try to finish reading one book before buying the next!
  • Read at least 25 pages a day; this greatly decreases the time it will take you to complete a book
  • Nurture the love of learning in yourself and your family

Last but by no means the least, we thank Allah subhanawata'aala for His mercy, help and guidance in running this bookstore. Any good you may find from our store is from Him alone. Any mistake you may find is of our doing and may our Lord forgive us. 

May Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى bless you on your pursuit of knowledge & put barakah in your efforts. Ameen.
