Shaykh Muhammad Imdad Hussain Pirzada recently travelled to Pakistan to attend the two-day international alumni conference of Dar-ul-Uloom Muhammadia Ghausia in Bhera Sharif, Pakistan, that took place on 21st and 22nd April 2018. The conference saw the graduation of 480 scholars who completed their studies at the institution in 2017 and 2018, and hundreds of graduates of the institution were in attendance to mark 61 years of the institution’s service to knowledge and Islamic scholarship.
During the two days, Shaykh Pirzada paid his respects at the mausoleum of his teacher Zia-ul-Ummat, Justice Pir Muhammad Karam Shah al-Azhari (ra) and met the honourable Pir Muhammad Amin Ul Hasnat Shah (Leader of DMG Bhera and Pakistan’s Minister of State for Religious Affairs) as well as Sahibzada Dr Abul Hasan Muhammad Shah al-Azhari (Vice-Principal of DMG Bhera). Shaykh Pirzada delivered a talk reflecting on the past and current success of the institution and future challenges for Islamic scholarship in the Indian subcontinent.
The final session of the conference was attended by Pakistan’s Federal Minister for Education, Mr Baleegh-ur-Rahman. During this session, Shaykh Pirzada was awarded the Al-Hasanaat Award for his literary work. Shaykh Pirzada also visited the two elderly scholars of DMG Bhera, namely Allama Khan Muhammad Noori and Allama Malak Ata Muhammad, who were the first graduates of the institution and who have spent their entire life teaching at DMG Bhera with their services spanning half a century.
