Jamia Al-Karam
A LIFE OF SERVICE CONTINUES...Many may not be aware of the humble beginnings of Jamia Al-Karam which started with a small class of only 5 students in Milton Keynes over 3 decades ago. Since the very first day of its establishment in 1985, numerous individuals have contributed so much towards this service in the way of Allah Almighty, none more so than our Founder and Principal, Shaykh Pirzada, and his noble wife, fondly called 'Auntie' by the students.Running any institution, especially one whose purpose is to serve Islam and the next generation of Muslims, is not for the faint-hearted. There have been many challenges, struggles and sleepless nights for our Principal no doubt, but behind the scenes Auntie has always been there to support and serve this centre of learning in any way possible.Our elder graduates will remember their student days in Milton Keynes when at certain lengthy periods of time, we did not have any full time chef to cater for the students. So Auntie took it upon herself to personally cook the daily meals for the students who would come to eat at Shaykh Pirzada’s home, while at the same time being a mother to her own children, who were very young at the time.Nurturing the students as well as their own children in having the passion to serve others has been the hallmark of Shaykh Pirzada and Auntie throughout their lives. A similar circumstance with memories of old has risen once again at Jamia Al-Karam where the institution has ended up without a chef since the vacancy has not been filled. In order to ensure continuity, Auntie despite her age is spending considerable hours in the main kitchen daily cooking and preparing meals for the students. Our Vice-Principal, his wife and children are accompanying her in the spirit of #LearnAndServe.Only Allah truly knows the sacrifices each person has made in their path towards Him, and without doubt He has prepared a tremendous reward for His loyal servants. We ask you to pray for Auntie and Shaykh Pirzada, may Allah bless them with long and healthy lives so we may continue to benefit from their presence. Amin.For anyone interested in the chef job opportunity, please contact us at info@alkaram.orgPhoto: Auntie leads the preparation of the evening meal yesterday at Jamia Al-Karam accompanied by her son and grand children.Video in comments section below: Memories of the opening ceremony of Jamia Al-Karam where we faced a similar situation and Shaykh Pirzada vowed that his own home will cater and serve the students until full time staff is found.Watch the speech of Shaykh Pirzada at the opening ceremony of Jamia Al-Karam, back in 1985, here: ...

The monthly Shabb-e Karam (Night of Benevolence) gathering was held at Jamia Al-Karam on Saturday evening, 13th November 2021. Students, teachers, graduates of the institution as well as other guests attended the evening, which was filled with complete recitals of the sublime Qur'an and odes in honour of the sublime Messenger (Allah bless him and grant him peace) in both the brothers and the sisters faculties of the institution.This particular month marked the passing away in the Islamic month of Rabi’ al-Thani of the grand Gnostic, al-Gawth al-A’zam Shaykh Muhy al-Din ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani (ra), and the gathering featured a detailed discourse from the Vice-Principal, Maulana Bakhtyar Pirzada al-Azhari, examining the spiritual as well as the intellectual tradition and legacy of al-Gawth al-A’zam (ra). The evening concluded with a meaningful discussion with the honourable Founder and Principal, Shaykh Muhammad Imdad Hussain Pirzada.In addition to the learned teachers of Jamia Al-Karam, a number of Imams and graduates of Jamia Al-Karam from across the country attended the gathering with their families including Allama Abu Awais Muhammad Zahoor Chishty al-Azhari (Oldham), Imam Qari Muhammad Zia al-Azhari (Oldham), Imam Hasnain Shakeel (Leeds), Maulana Mubashir Iqbal (Birmingham), Imam Mansoor Mahmood (London), Imam Kesser Hussain al-Azhari (Middlesbrough), Imam Hasan Patel (Bolton), Imam Qari Muhammad Ali (Rotherham), Imam Tasawar Hussain Monawar (Reading), Imam Iftikhar Daad al-Azhari (London) and Maulana Hafiz Musaddaq Shaheen al-Azhari (Peterborough) amongst others.The gathering was sponsored by the family of Usama Rasool, a student of Jamia Al-Karam, with prayers for his late mother as well as the family of Maulana Hafiz Mahboob Hussain al-Azhari, a senior teacher of Jamia Al-Karam, with prayers for his late father-in-law. Shaykh Pirzada led the prayers during the sessions supplicating for success in both worlds for those who are alive, and for elevation of ranks in Paradise for those who have passed away.The monthly Shabb-e Karam gathering takes places on the second Saturday of each month at Jamia Al-Karam.#ShabbeKaram #JamiaAlKaram ...
