White Thread Press was first founded as Prudence Publications in the UK, with the publication of their highly acclaimed titles Reflections of Pearls and Fiqh al-Imam a decade ago. The company has functioned ever since as a publisher of traditional Islamic texts. Its mission is to aid in the revival of the true heritage of scholarship in the Muslim Umma and to fill the educational and spiritual needs of contemporary Muslims in the English-speaking world by presenting, in the English language, original works by contemporary scholars and translated classical texts of scholars past. To date, White Thread Press has republished its bestselling titles as well as a number of other texts.
White Thread Press is committed to ensuring the highest academic standards for its publications, paying special attention to many details, among which the most important are accuracy and reliability of information and professional and aesthetically pleasing presentation, design, and typography.

Enhancements are made to incorporate diacritics for transliteration of Arabic and other foreign-language terms into English. Among other benefits, this allows for a sophisticated, accurate, and easy-to-read transliteration system when rendering Arabic prayers in English.
