Graduation of 45 Alims & 19 Alimahs at Jamia Al-Karam

On Friday 8 July 2022, Jamia Al-Karam held a ceremony to honour 45 male and 19 female graduates of the institution, who completed their Dars Nizami and Islamic Sciences courses in 2020 and 2021 as well as this year, 2022. Due to the covid pandemic, no such gathering was possible during the past two years.

The day was filled with celebrations, reflections and blessings, and a very large number of relatives and friends of the graduates attended the ceremony from across the country. For this auspicious occasion, Jamia Al-Karam was fortunate to host a great scholar, orator and leader of the Muslim community who has coordinated many religious projects in many countries and served for nearly half a century, Mufakkir-e Islam Allama Qamaruzzaman Azmi of Manchester (UK). Senior graduate of Jamia Al-Karam from the early years of the institution, Allama Hafiz Muhammad Arshad Misbahi (Manchester), also attended the ceremony accompanying Allama Qamaruzzaman Azmi during his trip.

Other guest scholars included Sahibzada Pir Zaheeruddin Siddiqui (Birmingham), Imam Qari Khalid Mehmood (Nelson) and a number of other Imams whose children also graduated on the day. The Friday Sermon and Prayer was led by Allama Hafiz Muhammad Arshad Misbahi, which was followed by the graduation ceremony for the male graduates held in the Masjid hall as well as for the female graduates held in the sister’s faculty.

The Founder and Principal of Jamia Al-Karam, Shaykh Muhammad Imdad Hussain Pirzada, whose efforts over the past 37 years have brought the institution to the success it enjoys today, delivered his reflection and warmly welcomed the guests particularly Allama Qamaruzzaman Azmi. Both scholars share the same year of birth and also arrived in the UK during the same year in 1974. The keynote graduation address was delivered by Allama Qamaruzzaman Azmi, who shared his reflections, thoughts and words of counsel for the newly graduated scholars.

We remain grateful for the many blessings and achievements that Allah Almighty has granted the institution of Jamia Al-Karam, and we pray for the graduates as they embark upon the next steps in their journey of service.
