Dean’s Message

In the Name of Allah, Most Beneficent & Merciful.

As Dean, Faculty of Islamic & Oriental, I would like to extend a very warm welcome. Surah Al Zhumr Verse No.9 reveals

 إِنَّمَا يَخْشَى اللَّهَ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ الْعُلَمَاء

“Are those equal, who know and those who don’t know?” The Knowledge is indentified in Islam as worship and the main purpose of it to become closer to Allah,the service of humanity  and harmony in society. To develop the harmony in the society, the role of religion, literature and civilization is very much important and these should be promoted at educational level as well.  Because they build the nations in a meaningful way. The successes and failures of nations are based on them. The Faculty works on these areas which is the great blessing for Institutions. This Faculty is striving to become a beacon of thought and dialogue in all fields that relates to Islam, Muslims Culture and to promote the values and standard of languages i.e. Arabic, Persian, Urdu and Punjabi. We also believe that the conservation of the existence of our Islamic heritage and its ability to serve all of humanity through its dynamic contributions to all disciplines of the art and science is a critical mission of all Muslim Community. I warmly appreciate and encourage to the efforts of every member of our Faculty and staff which he is doing for its progress. I am also proud of our Students who are working hard to brighten the name of the Faculty. I with my Faculty members look forward to welcome the new students in all programs every year and to play an important role to explore the new angles and corners of research and knowledge to enlighten the name of University. Allah Ta ala may help us.
