About the
Al Isra & Mi'raj Sufi Bookshop

The bookshop is the largest specialist Sufi bookshop in the southern hemisphere. Located in Tasmania, the only island state of Australia, the Al Isra & Mi'raj bookshop started life in one of the carriages of a steam train which was part of a tourist attraction at Margate, a small town south of the Tasmanian capital, Hobart.  

 After two years of trading on the train the Al Isra & Mi'raj bookshop moved to its current premises in the centre of Hobart where it is housed with the Al Isra & Mi'raj Sufi Study Centre.  

 While specialising in Sufi books and tapes we also stock a large selection of books on Islam and comparative spirituality.
