Needs of Religious Institutions
The need for religious institutions has been the need of the hour
at all times. The light that has been emitting forth from the religious
institutions will, Insha Allah, continue to illuminate the environment
In the days of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him) the
nucleus of a religious institution existed in the shape of ASHAB-E-SUFFAH.
This was a group of
the Muslims dedicated to the cause of Islam receiving lessons directly
from the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him) and disseminated
the knowledge so gained in the name of Allah. In fact, they were
the fore runners of our religious institutions. The first teacher
was the Holy Prophet himself while his ASHAB (companions) had been
the students and the raised platform in the Holy Prophet's mosque
was the first Islamic Institute (Madrasah).
With the passage of time, the impartation of knowledge by ASHAB
took a definite shape and form and almost every mosque had a small
MAKTAB attached to it. Thus the knowledge of the Holy Quran and
Sunnah reached the people everywhere both in urban and rural areas
of the day to day expanding Islamic world. This field of Islamic
activity was entirely looked after by the Ulama-e-Karam (Islamic
Scholars), sometimes under the patronage of rulers and mostly under
their own arrangements with the assistance of ASHAB-E-KHAIR (generous
people). They did so scrupulously and facing all kinds of odds kept
the candle of HIDAYAT burning. A clear proof of their dedication
and untiring efforts can be seen in the shape of Islamic Universities
(Jamias) spread all over the world as well as the huge Islamic literature
produced by these madersah educated Ulama so that the Islamic literature
in all the languages taken together exceeds the combined literature
of all other religions of the world.
To mention one specific feature; is learning of the
Holy Quran by heart. History is a witness how Muslim children have
been remembering the Holy Quran by heart for the last 1400 years.
This is a unique feature for the Muslims and the children (HUFFAZ)
as well as for their parents who can rightly boast this learning
The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) is reported to
have said that "Study the Holy Quran as it would be your
intercessor on the day of judgment". He has reported to
have said further "Two persons are enviable; one who has
been bestowed with the wealth of the Holy Quran and he continues
to read it day and night and the other who has been gifted with
wealth and he continues to distribute it day and night".
Hazrat Ibn-e-Umer has reported "The reciter of the Holy
Quran will be asked on the day of judgment to recite the Quran
and go up and up and recite the Quran in the manner he did in the
world and the Ayat on which he will end will be his destination".
Holy Quran is the last and final scripture. It is the
complete and final code of life till doomsday. This last scripture
is the highest point of submission to the Al-mighty. If one recites
it, one gets ten virtues for every letter that he recites. On the
other hand its recitation creates a feeling of submission to the
Highest. So the Holy prophet has said: "One who does not have even
a small portion of the Holy Quran in his heart, his heart is like
a ruined building"
Foundation of Jamia Binoria
Jamia Binoria was founded by Mufti Muhammed Naeem in the
sacred month of Rajab 1398 A.H. (1978). Although at that time there
had been extreme lack of means but Mufti Muhammed Naeem wholly and
solely relying on the help of Allah Ta'ala started the work. The
price of land where now stands a magnificent mosque and the impressing
buildings of the Jamia was very high. The area teemed with big industrial
establishments but no industry was there for the development of
human mind and culture. Mufti Muhammed Naeem went so far in this
struggle that he collected funds through payable loans from his
friends and well wishers. Allah Ta'ala so much rewarded these sincere
efforts that the Jamia has got international status in a very short
span of time.
Jamia Binoria has been making every effort for the
dissemination of the teachings of the Holy Quran and the Sunnah.
Students from all over the world are getting education in this institution
and this they do after covering long distances and at considerable
expenses. Now there are about 1300 day scholars while there are
1000 resident students from many countries. Many American students
learnt the Holy Quran by heart and qualified themselves to lead
Tarawih prayers during Ramazan. How impressive the scene would have
been when these students lead Tarawih prayers impress some Muslims
to the extent that they offer their children for admission in Jamia
Binoria while some give donations.
May this Institution live long to keep the cause
of Islam. May Allah reward all those who are cooperating in this
