Asalamu Alaikum

Does anyone know about books in hindi about basic shia beliefs, I know someone who has converted to Islam but totally unaware about Shia-school and Islam, it is fasting that attracts him towards Islam but he has not researched or read anything else till now, the only language he knows is hindi and I really don't know which book I should recommend him because I haven't read any book about Islam in hindi?? After talking to him it seems he has just recited Shahadah but in practical life he is far away from the teachings of Islam and not a practicing muslim at all, so please suggest some books that will really have a deep impact on him and he will get to know about the pleasure of following Allah's commandments, some books on Quran, spirituality, about the life of Prophet, Fatima, Zainab (peace be upon all of them) and Karbala.

Is he living near any major shia dominated city like Lakhnow or Hyderabad? There are plenty of book stores with vast hindi literature out there. Some book stores even send you books at your address(I think it was abbas book depot, not sure). http://alhassanain.com/hindi/index.php had collection on different languages including hindi, not sure if they updated.

No brother actually this is the problem that comes in my way language barrier, I couldn't help him because he only  knows hindi, anyways I know a scholar from Delhi who might help him if I don't find some brothers here on internet who can recommend me some books. 

If you have some contacts with hindi speaking religious people please ask them for help, websites, books, blogs etc anything that can be helpful. 

It is so unfortunate that there are so many shias living in India who are native hindi speakers yet there is not a single book or websites dedicated to those who want to benefit from Islam.

    •  @Mishael, Please read the thread shared by brother @Kazemi.

      I think you need this.
    • Salam. If you have one year before you start your Masters degree program, then there is no need to leave your family to go study Islam. Stay with your family and do as much independent study about Islam as you can. Do research on your own by reading and studying. After you achieve your Masters degree, inShaAllah you can take a break and reassess your situation to decide whether you want to take hawzah classes or other educational opportunities or if you need to work to pay off debts for yourself or your family.
