Mission & Vision

Most of Islamic scholars graduating out of a religious seminary end up as Imams in Mosques, teachers and preachers. They exercise great influence on the life of the community. Each of them is the leader of his flock small or big. As such his own education and training contributes to the guidance or misguidance of the community at large. Instead of blaming them for economic and educational backwardness of Muslim community and the ills associated with it such as narrow mindedness, communal mindset or ghetto mentality etc. the society should invest in their training and education. Fresh graduates of Madrasas are in fact the potential future leaders and guides of the community. Each of them is likely to influence and illuminate thousands of minds at least.

Madrasas, producing religious officials, Moulvis, Maulanas, Hafiz, Qari and Imams generally don’t equip them with proper training or education in English language and basic natural and social sciences or job oriented technical and professional courses. This has been cause of much debate. As a matter of fact Ulama now themselves strongly realize that there is urgent need for Islamic scholars who have sufficient knowledge to deal with the complex issues of modern society and communicate with the educated class and especially with media in English language.

In his Darul Uloom Deoband’s convocation (1290 H) address Maulana Mohammad Qasim said: “If the students of this Madrasa (after completion of their syllabus) study modern subjects in Govt. schools it would refurbish their accomplishment”. (Qasmi Biography Vol.1 by Gilani quoted by Memoir of Shaikhul Hind By Mufti Azizurrahman Bijnori pg 203) Shaikhul Hind’s monumental effort to build bridge between Deoband and Aligarh and his call to building colleges on the model of great Madrasas of Baghdad and Qartabah while laying foundation of Jamia Millia Islamia still reverberates in our mind and inspires us once more to build the institution of his dream.
