One of the primary objectives, amongst several others, of IFA is to highlight the contemporary issues vis-à-vis Islam in this present modern era through publication of books, Journals, periodical and comprehensive reports on the subject concerning the Islamic World in general and Muslim in particular.
Its mission has never been confined to one single domain of simple publication but it goes much beyond that where it is constantly engaged in the translation of precious and rare books of different language into Urdu and other vernacular with sole objective of making its reach wider and deeper.
The idea of IFA publication was conceived to achieve the large objective of Islamic Fiqh Academy and to commit this noble mission not only to study Islam, jurisprudence with a Quranic prism but also to provide a lasting solution on some of the complexities troubling the common intellectual landscape of educated section of the Muslim society.
