the masjid al-rabia library

Integral to Masjid al-Rabia's commitment to accessibility is accessibility of knowledge, the ability for anyone and everyone to have access to the tradition. At Masjid al-Rabia, we recognize how knowledge of the traditions is often rendered inaccessible by virtue of cost, geographic location, language barriers, as well as physical access barriers. Our library seeks to remove those barriers by providing access to knowledge for free.   

This includes: 

  • Qu'rans translated into several languages: We believe people should be able to access the Qu'ran in the language most familiar to them. 
  • Feminist interpretation: We believe people should have access to the scholarship committed to rethinking patriarchal interpretations of the Qu'ran, the Sunnah, Islamic law, etc. 
  • LGBTQ Muslim scholarship: We believe LGBTQ Muslims should have access to interpretations and other modes of scholarship that affirm the inherent human dignity of everyone. 
  • Sect-diverse scholarship: Our commitment to sect-diverse scholarship reflects our larger commitment to being a sect-diverse community and believing in the inherent goodness of learning from each other, among each other.
