The Moscow Islamic Institute, the scientific-national library of the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania, and the Russian State Children's Library in Moscow are some other centers that have received the Islamic works of the foundation.

The main objective of the foundation is to disseminate Islamic studies and promote knowledge about Islam in Russia.

The publications of the foundation are available at major bookstores such as Labyrinth Books, Chitai-gorod, LitRes, Ozon and Biblio Globus.
