The Jamia Islamia Minhaj-ul-Quran is the Sharia faculty of the Minhaj University, Lahore, and it has been training Islamic scholars and faith leaders since 1986. Many of its graduates have been posted around the world providing spiritual and religious services to Muslim societies and minorities.

    Through the eff ort of its scholars, publications and educational programmes, the Minhaj University, Lahore, has been an active force for the revival of classical and traditional Islamic learning in the Muslim world. The graduates it has produced have

    become a beacon of light in their communities, propagating the true Islamic teaching and beliefs.

    The Minhaj College Manchester aims to provide Islamic scholarship to meet the many challenges faced by 2nd and 3rd generation British Muslims. The MCM is committed to teaching to the highest standard of Islamic education with its Intermediate Diploma in Islamic Studies (IDIIS), which will draw on both traditional and contemporary texts for its students.

The college curriculum is carefully monitored and designed under the guidance of Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri.

Author of over fi ve hundred books, he is currently working on writing his exegesis of the Holy Qur’an and a compendium of hadith consisting of thirty volumes, among many other works. His extensive, scholarly research serves as valuable resource material for enhancing classical and traditional learning while providing a modern contextualisation. Scholars and students alike are highly appreciative of his eff orts and greatly value his revivalist and forward-looking approach, including his contemporary presentation of the classical Islamic teachings.
