Our major publications
April 24, 2000
Dear brothers and sisters
You will be happy to know that we have started
the work of putting our literature on CDROM. All the CDs will
have full search capabilities with linking of table of contents
and index with the book pages, Note pad (for making your own notes),
placing your own Book marks etc. There will be print facilities
but with a backround water mark.
At appropriate places graphics and multimedia clips
will be used. The following projects are underway:
1) We are putting 12 major books of Maulana Muhammad
Ali on general Islam on CDROM.
The Religion of Islam
A Manual of Hadith
Muhammad the Prophet
Living Thoughts of the Prophet Muhammad
Introduction to the Study of the Holy Quran
Muhammad and Christ
The Antichrist Gog and Magog
The New World Order
The Muslim Prayer Book
History of the Prophets
Islam the Religion of Humanity
The Early Caliphate
"The Teachings of Islam" by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam
Hopefully Inshallah this CDROM will be completed
by our Convention in Columbus, Ohio in August.
2) The entire Urdu writings of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam
Ahmad Sahib and those of his books which have been translated
into English. This CD Inshallah will be completed in eight months.
3) All the writings of Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din.
4) The rest of the English and Urdu literature
of our Jamaat including the works of Maulana Muhammad Ali and
our other scholars.
Several separate companies are working on these
projects. We have most of Maulana Muhammad Ali's books on computer
disk already, and no keying-in will be necessary.
Alhamdolillah, the demonstration CD disk
of the English Translation of the Holy Quran by Maulana Muhammad
Ali (with the footnotes, introduction and Arabic text) has been
delivered to us and we are adding additional features to it which
will take a couple of more months to complete. The delay in the
production of the Holy Quran CDROM has been due mainly to the
scanning and proofreading of the Arabic verses.
