"Books are the gardens of the scholars" it is called in a personal quotation of Imam Ali (Peace be with him.), and so this library therefore does not dispose only various literature on Islamic sciences, but of course also documents of other world religions, cultures and furthermore about the interfaith dialog carried on the library.

The 220 s. qm. presence and lending library is used among others also as a cultural hall for smaller groups or for example for young people to film shows.

Today the library contains almost 6810 titles and 10288 books. Under these there are many original documents with dedications of the authors which are donated generously to the library. Among others Ayatollah Seyyed Muhsin Hakim and Ayatollah Taleghani left a dedication in her editions and dedicated these to the Islamic Centre Hamburg. The spectrum of the Islamic titles is very various and ranges from documents about Islamic right, tradition sciences, mysticism, Islamic philosophy of life to Islamic history and Arabian language and literature.
