Field Guide to Digital Islamic Law Resources Roundup

The Field Guide to Digital Islamic Law, in the form of a Google document, is a collection of resource links and annotations to SHARIAsource and other Harvard resources, global online digital resources, and a robust “Digital Islamic Law Collection.” We recently added several exciting resources to this list:

  • Lane’s Arabic-English Lexicon is a site dedicated to Lane’s Lexicon. Users click on an Arabic letter and are presented with a list of words under it that they can choose from. This site is not searchable and covers contemporary lexicon.
  • The Hill Museum and Manuscript Library (HMML) is an archive of over 200,00o manuscript photographs in digital format that are selected from manuscript collections around the world in need of photographic preservation. Its Islamic manuscripts collection boasts tens of thousands of manuscripts already digitized or in the digitization pipeline. The database is searchable and includes Arabic, English, French, and Spanish texts.
  • Vajehyab is a Farsi dictionary that includes Dehkhoda, Amid, and Mu’in. It includes three Farsi-toFarsi dictionaries and one English translation.
