MAJALLA is a repository of digital content relevant to the Islamic civilization. The site operates through the collaborative effort of volunteer Editors based in many countries around the world.

The site archives content in most languages. We accept content in languages in which some of our Editors are familiar. if you have a collection you want to make available through, or you would like to become an Editor of content in a particular language, please contact us.

If interested in collaboration or in submitting your work or a collection you own, please contact us. Your efforts help in creating an archive of knowledge about Islamic thought, events, and history.

This is primarily a public service and the initial founders would like it to be self-sustaining in the long run so that it remains freely accessible and free of influence and control by narrow interest groups. Your support can help achieve these goals.
