The Preporod is the informative newsletter of the Islamic Community in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is published by the Riyasat, is issued bimonthly in Sarajevo, and is distributed throughout the territory of the Islamic Community, both within Bosnia and Herzegovina and abroad.
The aim of Preporod is to provide the community with all the important information relating to the activities of the offices and institutions of the Islamic Community, as well as to the activities of its leaders, announcements of activities in the jamats, madjlises, muftis, current news regarding Muslims, and other issues of interest to Islam and Muslims, as well as to provide information on current events in the Muslim world.
Preporod plays an important role in the Islamic Community, and among the Muslim population as a whole. Many Muslims, as a tradition, consider Preporod as their religious magazine, and subscribe to and read it regularly.
The magazine was first published in 1970.
Its editor-in-chief is Aziz Kadribegović.
The Takvim is the almanac and official calendar of the Islamic Community in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and consists of a series of texts and a calendar with all the official holidays, important religious dates, as well as exact times of the daily prayers. The Takvim is issued once a year, and is published by the Riyasat of the Islamic Community.
In late 1933, the Supreme Office of the Islamic Community in Belgrade decided to issue a calendar- taqwim for the hijri year 1352-1353 i.e. for the year 1934. Until 1942, the Takvim was published by the Islamic Community Supreme Office. These issues were published in three alphabets - the Latin, Cyrillic and Arabic text- in one issue.
From 1943 to 1948, the Takvim was published by the Hajji Ahmed Kujundžić Bookstore. In 1949 and 1950, it was published as an addendum to the official Gazette of the Islamic Community, and constituted a calendar with Ramadhan prayer and meal times for several years.
From 1951, the Supreme Islamic Office for the former Yugoslavia conceded the publication of the Takvim to the newly-established Ilmija (Religious Servants) Association. It is, in fact, from this time that texts and articles were published in the Takvim alongside the actual calendar, which made the Takvim a unique annual review.
As of 1997, the Takvim has been published solely by the Riyasat of the Islamic Community, based in Sarajevo. Every issue of the Takvim has contained a calendar, either as part of the magazine or as a special supplement.
New Muallim is a quarterly magazine that deals with problems in the field of pedagogy and education. It is issued by the Ilmiyya society.
