The DTI Publishing House was born of the aspiration to make the Islamic history of Cape Town known to the world. However, by the guidance of Allah, Exalted is He, this aspiration has crystallised into the aim of making sacred knowledge available to the world. Inspired by this objective, the Publishing House has gone from strength to strength. Our first publication, Imams of the Valley, brought the biographies of the scholars of Hadramaut whose works have been seminal in the transmission of sacred knowledge to the attention of the global community. It has been followed by a whole range of valuable publications authored by Hadrami scholars and others focusing on the ways of the Ahl al-sunnah wa al-jama’ah and the importance of traditional knowledge.
