Dr. U. Bapputty Haji Library, named after
one of the three DHIU founding fathers,
is a spacious building, with marvel rich
collections of books and references in almost
all disciplines of education. With the inclusion
of ample digital and cyber facilities, the
DHIU library is gradually replacing the
old library systems with some of the state-of-the-art
library facilities at the international
standards. DHIU is determined to transform
this into one of the major Islamic Library
and reference centre in South India.
Initially named Al-Manhal, the DH library
started functioning in 1988. In May 2009,
the library was formally shifted to the
new three-story building and was inaugurated
by Sayyid Muhammad Ali Shihab Panakkad,
the late spiritual leader of Kerala Muslims.
The foundation stone of the building was
laid by Honorable Palestine Grand Mufti
Dr. Ekrima Swabri on 2nd March 2005.
