The Islamic Studies and Intercultural Cooperation (IFIS&IZ) launched with the support of KUDEM – Culture House of European Muslims magnificent project: the development of the most extensive and multilingual special library for Islamic theology within Europe, aiming 100.000 books. The project is carried out with confidence and determination. Last year the library has reached 25.000 books an important milestone in the development of the library. So far the library’s collection predominantly is consisting of Arabic and Turkish scientific literature. The current collection was successfully categorized, labelled and entered into the library’s database which has been carried out with a high level of discipline and commitment. In the next step the library’s collection will now enhanced with a focus on English and German literature. Our heartfelt thanks goes to all who have supported us so far in the development of the library…
Since the foundation of the library the works are accompanied by Prof. Dr. Hüseyin İlker Çınar (IFIS&IZ, Mannheim / Chair for Tafsir, University of Osnabrück) and a commission consisting of professors and academics from the relevant disciplines. Currently the work is focusing on the development of the book list with German and English literature primarily selecting academic books on Islamic theology. With its unique collection the library will be soon in service with literature in six languages (English, German, French, Arabic, Turkish and Persian) for students, scientist and other scientifically interested to support their studies and academic research.
For the next phase of the expansion of the Islamic-library we ask you for your support in order to accelerate the realization of this important project. Your support can take place by financial donation or by donating relevant literature. The Islamic-library was so far financed by the Culture House of European Muslims (KUDEM) exlusively.

In this sense, we greet all – students, scientists and scholars who share this passion and express our appreciation and respect for their work.
