    Default How do you open a .Bok File?

    Assalaamu Alaykum,

    Many religious works in Arabic available on numerious sites (such as almeshkat) are .bok files. Anyone knows how to open them?

    Like for example Taj al-'uroos by Imam Zubaydi: http://www.almeshkat.net/books/open....t=45&book=3279
    And if he were to ask for a gentle lady in marriage, he would be refused, and when he leaves the world it does not miss him, and if he goes out, his going out is not noticed, and if he falls sick, he is not attended to, and if he dies, he is not accompanied to his grave.

    Those are files meant for al-Maktabah as-Shamilah.

    For details about the Shamilah and to download it, see here.

    It is the best Islamic Encyclopedia, nothing can rival it.

    You can use the Shamilah online here

    The Shamilah program seems a bit complicated for me, couldnt open a book, and i mostly got to see weird signs.

    And the Recon software didnt quite work.

    hmm...

    Anyone found a way to open the taj al-arus .bok? or have an e-copy of it?

    The e-shamela didn't work for me either?

    What error message did you get with the Shamilah?
    It is very simple to install and use.

    Brother pls download Maktaba Shamela from this link. These .bok files r designed for Maktaba Shamela as far i know. And yeah, its the best Islamic turath book software i have used. May Allah reward those who created this software and distributed it for free. جزاهم الله احسن الجزاء Amin.

    The brother who made it is a Salafi student of knowledge, he is a member of Arabic Multaqa ahl al hadeeth and he has some brothers who help him in preparing the books.
    There is a special section in the Arabic Multaqa just for that program.

    May Allah reward him and everyone working on that program greatly, it benefit many students of knowledge including myself.

    I disagree that it is the best Islamic software, since - it is very slow in searching for key word results. Also, it has many Wahhabi books in it that the Sunni reader should be aware of. It has 6688 books in it now, but the following one has some 12,000 books in it:

It has 6688 books in it now, but there is one called al-Jami al-Kabir which is said to have some 15,000 volumes in it and it is much faster. The latter is not free unlike shamela.
    It is slow in searching because you have to do fahrasa to the books (under khidamat menu), then it will be much faster.

    And we are sorry that the program is too "wahhabi" for you.

    May Allah reward the brothers for their hard work to benefit students of knowledge.
