Past Book Awards

A PDF of each Book Award publication is available to scholars outside Yemen, since it is not possible to ship copies outside Yemen at this time.  Individuals outside of Yemen may obtain a pdf copy of the text by making a donation of at least $25 to AIYS. The proceeds from the donation will be used to support future book awards.

If you want to order a pdf copy, please do the following.

1. Make your donation here:

2. Notify the AIYS Webshaykh ( that you have made a donation of at least $25 and provide your name and email address. You will then receive a copy of the pdf directly from the AIYS President.

3. We ask that you do not distribute the pdf but let others know that they can order their own copy with a donation. This will ensure that we can continue to provide funding for future book awards to Yemeni scholars in Yemen.
