Named after the Late Ustaz Syed Ahmad Semait for his many contributions to the literary collection and translation of Islamic books, Syed Ahmad Semait Reference Library serves as the resource centre for works on and about Islamic heritage and thesis collections from the local Asatizah.

To date, our library collection houses more than 2000 titles. We are also constantly on the search to obtain more scholarly publications to grow our library collection and knowledge of the Muslim community. In order to raise public awareness on the availability of our collection of thesis research, we have organized a program called Knowing Our Thinkers – A platform for our local Islamic researchers to present the contents and results of their theses to the public.
