The endeavour to propagate Islam requires a comprehensive
approach. Such an enterprise embraces modern initiatives in
education, training and social work. Unfort- unately the
stereotypical popular idea of religion,
as an enterprise of rituals, still
survives in the minds of the people who continue to
fail to associate this wider, and an all embracing
intellectual view of Islam as a corporate way of life.
In order to accommodate this traditional approach, we have
established the following Departments: -
This is for teaching proper recitation and memori
zing of the Holy book to younger learners.
Taleem-e-Deen (Deeniyat Centres): This
the basic teachings of Islam
Religious Short courses
Fahm-e-Deen (Religious Thought):
This initiative, sponsored by Jamia Imam Khomeni and Jamia
Seyedah Khdijatul Kubra, comprises of short courses, run
annually from 15th of April to 15th July,
for the benefit of boys and girls who wish to matriculate in
Religious Thought. Details regarding these courses are
available on the Internet.
Although this particular
program is based for Pakistani Residents, every Summer, we will
open our scheme for individuals from the west who wish to
benefit also from this scheme. During their stay, their every
need will be sorted out, including accommodation, food, and
medical. For more information, E-mail us by clicking the link
During the course of the year, institutions (Mdaris) organise
four Community Programmes, viz.,
Gathering): Every year, on 20th
Jamadi Al’Thani, Jamia Khdijatul Kubra holds a function called
‘Mother’s Day’ to celebrate Jashn-e-Masarrat (Celebration
Gathering). Local women and girl students and their
relatives take part in the proceedings and benefit from it.

‘Eid-e-Ghadir. Speakers, scholars and poets from all
over the country eulogise Hazrat Ali Aleyhissalam.
Yom-e-Gham (The Day of Lament): Every year,
on 10th of Safar, a function to lament the
martyrdom of Seyedina Hussain is held under the auspices of
Jamia Imam Khomeni. A variety of organisations, from all

raised on the occasion.

financing basis, visiting rural and adjoining tribal areas in
order to disseminate basic knowledge of Islam. Each tour
lasts for ten days and prior to their departue, each volunteer
