Online Searchable Dictionaries for Islamic Studies: A Preliminary List

A short list of dictionaries well-known in Islamic Studies, that are now digitally available online. There are of course a lot more dictionaries out there on the web, but I have included here only those resources which scholars would be inclined to trust and use, and are freely accessible.

Please leave other websites in the comments – I will update this post if there are some good suggestions.

 

baheth.info – gateway to Classical Arabic-to-Arabic dictionaries.

ejtaal.net – a bundle of currently used dictionaries (note: unclear whether copyright has been honored.)

Lane’s Arabic Lexicon

Steingass Persian Dictionary

Hayyim Persian Dictionary

Online Dictionary of Arabic Philosophical Terms – conglomerate of scholarly glossaries.
