  Salman book Centre:  

Salman Book Centre has seen the light of the day in the year 1988 and the person responsible for it was Aijaz. Who has started from selling religious Banners, Stickers, headbands, having the ensigns of Panjetan-e-Paak & the martyrs of Karbala. Subsequently the sale of books which contain the elegies Martyrs of Karbala. Besides it other religious books were also sold.

Over the years the Quantum of religious printed matter has increased day by day and presently a sizeable stock is there. Publication of renowned publishers of religious books including Holy Quran, Nahjul Balagha is readily available. Of late the centre is also dealing in Cds, DVDs, Cassettes, of majalis & nauhas.

Now the centre is a place which has become very famous for all the above material & people are flocking to the centre to purchase what all is available & sending all over the world.

NRIs who come to Hyderabad will also make a point to visit the centre for various purchases according to their needs.

The centre is also bringing out a multi-colored calendar Title Salman Calendar. Since 12 years. It is giving the minutest details of good & bad dates of the month. Birthdates & Shahadath Dates of fourteen infallibles a.s.

Salman Book centre has become the landmark in Hyderabad and it is the last word for religious books and also for the audio cassettes of majalis which are held not only in Hyderabad but also in Dubai, Pakistan & other countries. It is nothing but the blessings of Mohammad & aale Mohammad & patronage of the shia community of Hyderabad into which the centre has flourished and hope to do the same in future god willing.(Inshallah)

It is because of Salman book centre the people haved inculcated the habit of reading religious books. In addition to it renowned Ulama, poets & zakireen, who come to participate in the religious gatherings of Hyderabad will make it a point to visit the centre.

Hence it can be said that the sapling planted by Late Aijaz has grown up into a shady tree which is being use by one & all.


Aijaz was a Clement and religious personality. He was very popular not only among his friends but also in the whole Shia community. He was a versatile artist and has to his credit many paintings and works of calligraphy which presented verses from Holy Quran. He ventured making very attractive and artistic names of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) He was expert in miniature creations of art.

He presented to Dr. Zakir Hussain, the former President of India, a grain of rice on which he engraved Bismillah Ir Rahman Ir Raheem. & Nasru Minallahi Wa Fat’hun Qareeb. When Dr. Zakir Hussain came to Hyderabad, Mr Aijaz had the honour of having audience with him for considerable time.

He opened a shop 15 years ago opposite to Ibadath Khana-e-Hussaini. Where in he kept different artistic toghras and many people acquired them after offering their Hadiyas to be exhibited in their homes as a mark of obeisance towards Ahlul Bayt (a.s.).

Mr. Aijaz was very much impressed by the majalis of Allama Rasheed Turabi and had a large collection of his majalis in the form of cassettes and printed material. He was so much taken away by the majalis recited by Allama Turabi for disciples & companions of Hazrat Ali (A.S.), Hazrat Salman Farsi (r.a) & Hazrat Ammar-e-Yasir (r.a) that he named his sons Salman & Ammar and the book shop opened was named as Salman book centre. The shop by the grace of Allah and the blessings of fourteen Infallibles (A.S.) has become a unique centre for all the leading religious books. It is like beacon for the whole Shia community to get itself trenched in the heavy showers of knowledge emitted from Salman Book Centre. It is a small shop & is like Diamond in the ring of which every customer is proud, as he was lucky enough to procure the book from it. Momineen coming from all the seven shores of the world are anchoring themselves at Salman Book Centre to avail the facility of the unique collection of religious Books, Cassettes, CDs, & Toghras before going abroad.

The fame of book centre has brought into its fold almost all the renowned and learned Ulemas and Zakireen like Allama Irfan Hyder Abedi, Allama Taleb Johari, Professor Abdul Hakeem, Moulana Sadiq Hasan, and Moulana Shoukat Raza who graced the majalis of Hyderabad. They not only visited but also penned their valuable views about his book centre.

It was due to devotion and total dedication of Mr Aijaz to Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) which made Salman book centre flourish by leaps and bounce. It has become a household name for the Shia community as a whole their requirements of religious books.

I request one and all to pray for Mr. Aijaz who joined heavenly abode in the service of Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) whom he served in this world for all his life.
