Copyright Policy

In the Name of Allaah, the All-Merciful…

 May Allaah’s Salaah and Salaam be upon His final Messenger, to proceed:

Bakkah.net offers, by Allaah’s Permission and Grace, original and precise translations from the scholars of Islam. 

Therefore, as much as we would like to see the information here at Bakkah.net spread far and wide, we have to be careful about letting our websites get watered down. I mean by this that visitors go from site to site seeing the same articles on each site and do not value those sites anymore.

So we ask that those who want to connect their visitors to certain information available at Bakkah.net, please do just that – link them to Bakkah.net. Use a small passage (like a paragraph or two) to draw interest to the article, and then provide a link to its source page here on Bakkah.net. This will accomplish the goal, and no one will be deprived of any Islamic information.

For those who would like to use material from Bakkah.net for newsletters or books, in a non-profit manner, then you are welcome to use our materials with the following conditions:

1 – That you quote the source (www.bakkah.net).

2 – That you do not change anything in the article. If you feel there are mistakes in the article, then contact us.

Needless to say, we do not give permission for anyone to put our material in newsletters or publications containing ideas contradictory to pure Islam based on the Book, the Sunnah, and the understanding of the As-Salaf As-Saalih.

We do not prevent anyone from printing out articles and information from www.bakkah.net for:

(1) Their own personal use;

(2) To share with friends or family;

(3) Or to post at their area masjid or Islamic center,

So long as reference is made to www.bakkah.net.

Other than what has preceded, we strictly reserve all intellectual property rights to all pictures, articles, or any other content found at www.bakkah.net.

We want to share the knowledge of the Quran and the Sunnah upon the understanding of the righteous Salaf with everyone. With this policy, we are only preserving the individuality of our websites, without denying anyone access to any information available on www.bakkah.net.

Furthermore, our the rights that we have reserved in this policy are protected by our Religion, wal-hamdulillaah. If you have any doubts about the legitimacy of these rights we have claimed, then please read up on the topic of intellectual property rights in Islam. [Read this article for example.]

May Allaah grant us Success.

  2. As-Salaam ‘alaykum,

    dear ustaadh, I would like to know how shaykh Muhammad Bazmool feels about his books/lectures being translated to a language and published as a book? (in terms of copyrights/permission etc.). I hope you’re able to provide me with an answer, since someone was thinking about publishing a book originally by the shaykh. Baaraka Allaahu fiek.

  3. Asalaamu Alaikum,

    Brother please forgive me. At my workplace they have a weekly jumu’ah newsletter and due to them providing incorrect and articles of innovators I decided to provide them articles from here and other salafi websites. However due to complaints of salafi material from readers at work I would provide it without the link so that they would not see the source website and complain.

    I have now stopped doing this for two reasons:

    1) The articles were being watered down and others were contributing non-salafi articles in other weeks when I didn’t contribute.
    2) By removing the links I can now see I am failing the copyright rules in place.

    I have stopped doing this and quit the newsletter as I see no benefit if one week my articles are salafi and the next week non-salafi articles are published. As well as having to hide due to complaints from sufis and having to avoid topics.

    May Allah forgive me and then I ask for you to forgive me.

    BarakaAllahu Feek

    • wa ‘alayk as-salaamu wa rahmatullaah. May Allaah reward you for discontinuing that practice, and may He bless you and accept your repentance. Indeed, Allaah forbids us from mixing the truth with falsehood in the Quran (2:42). The people need to hear about pure authentic Islam, not mixed with messages of deviant methodologies. May Allaah increase you in goodness!
