Nashiri also aims at offering -electronically- diverse materials free for everyone" according to Hayat Alyaqout the 24-year-old founder and editor-in-chief.

Nashiri was launched on July 4, 2003 and quickly grew up to include more than 120 e-books, 100 writers from all over the Arabic speaking countries, and over 2000 articles.
