What is Sunnah Publishing?

July 30, 2009

Sunnah Publishing

Aims and Objectives

The Arabic term, ‘Sunnah’ comes from the verb ‘sanna’, which means to enact something, usually a custom or habit.  Sunnah is commonly referred to in the religion of Islam as the customary or habitual tradition of the Prophet Muhammad in acts of worship.

So we believe that the term Sunnah accurately conveys what Sunnah Publishing wishes to establish, and that is: to provide services to the Muslim and non-Muslim community in Grand Rapids MI, based upon the established traditions of the Prophet Muhammad.

To further this goal, we have currently fulfilled the following projects:

•    We have published two books dealing with the Muslim belief in God (Arabic: Allah) and the importance of worshipping God alone and a book on issues pertaining to marriage and divorce according to Islamic traditions.  Both of these publications were translated by us from Arabic to English, and they were originally authored by esteemed Islamic Scholars.

•    For the last three years, we have established weekly Sunday school classes for youth, teaching the basics of Arabic language, Islamic creed and the rituals of purification and Prayer in Islam.  These classes have been attended by Muslims as well as the occasional non-Muslim.

•    For the last two years, we have established and maintained two highly popular websites, and which are filled with our translations in text and audio format.  They also serves as a message board of sorts for various traditional Islamic events throughout the country.

•    Due to the fact that we live in turbulent times, we believe it is necessary to make known our position against the violence, extremism, and terrorism that some wicked individuals have perpetrated in the name of Islam.  We do not support any such acts.  Rather, we are at the forefront of condemning such acts and rebutting their twisting of Islamic texts to justify their heinous crimes against humanity.  Many of our publications, audio recordings, and web articles are a testament to this fact.

So this, in short, is a brief overview of Sunnah Publishing.  For more information about us and our activities, products, and future goals, please feel free to contact us:
