asalamu alaikum rahmatullah wa barakatu


ok so i have a huge collection of islamic ebooks on my computer alhamdulilah but im wondering what is the ruling on reading them as i downloaded them all for free off various sites but some say that they are copyrighted. is it permissable to continue reading them for personal use or should i stop due to respecting the copyright. this has been worrying me for a while like subhannallah i want to read them to earn reward from Allah so id rather it wasnt a doubtful matter to me

and also can one copyright islamic ilm? like is that even valid as ilm should be shared with as many people as possible

jazak allah khair for reading
