بِسْمِ ٱللَّٰهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

The birth of this project began on the 30th of Ramadan 1443, which coincided with 2 May 2022.

The inspiration for the name comes from the classical Arabic word: تُرْجُمَان

This word can be translated either as: interpreter, translator or the old English word: dragoman

The word dragoman referred to translators or interpreters in the Middle East. It therefore felt most appropriate to use this ’lost’ word for a project dedicated to translating Classical Islamic(Arabic) texts.


This project began with the efforts of Kentoseth. The initial concept was discussed here and then further discussed here.

A pertinent issue was then raised on the arabic-for-nerds blog regarding the sourcing and digitization of Classical Islamic(Arabic) texts.

These three articles collectively form the foundations or inspiration for this project.
