IMAN Mission Statement
To enrich our community by providing great contents and products through curious minds, innovative technologies and collaborative partnerships.
IMAN provides the ‘essential nutrients’ in developing our products through these four attributes:
In 2012, when Founder of IMAN, Dr Aisyah Zainordin came back to Malaysia after studying and working in the UK, she realized that there were not many easily accessible good books for the public.
Imanshoppe was then founded as an Islamic retail and e-commerce bookstore, aimed to become the platform for readers like her to reach out for great books.
As the market expanded and demand increased, the needs to provide more great books for the audience has reached its calling. Thus, came in IMAN Publication in 2013, founded as the publishing arm for IMAN. Since then, IMAN publication has grown and covered not only Islamic genres but general group as well.
IMAN has since expanded its market nationwide and won many awards in the publishing and book industry. Our partnership with agents and retail bookstores both in Malaysia and global continue to expand.
Since 2020, IMAN has ventured into digital content and platform to explore new market. With the same objective in mind, an online content platform was created under IMAN+ as an extension from the content published in books where they focus on audience who prefer content through digital means.
