I recently came across a website that has Islamic books you can read online without downloading. It is formatted very nicely so it fits in most screen sizes whether that be from your mobile phone or large screen PC / Tablets.
If you’re like me and you enjoy reading books from your phone then you’ll love this website. It looks like a new website and it has a fair amount of books around 10-15 all you can read online, chapter by chapter.
I find it very annoying when I can’t read PDF books on my phone because it isn’t formatted correctly and I have to scroll horizontally whilst zooming in, this definitely takes the fun out of reading and strains your eye in the process!
I’ve read some books from there without any of the above mentioned problems it was a very pleasant experience I must admit. It could do with more functionalities such as bookmarking chapters etc but for now I guess it is decent. Why don’t you check it out and bookmark it? You’ll find it at http://balagha.net. Come back and let me know how you found it.
Here are some of the books that are available online to read at balagha.net.
