This document presents the complete (proposed) master plan of Farooqia Islamic University. The plan incorporates all those educational, social and utility projects which are essential for a modern educational complex. 

Jamia Farooqia is a renowned University of Islamic learning and busy to impart Islamic education since 1967. Being a well known institution for Islamic learning in all over the world up till now thousands of people have been acquiring Islamic education from with in and outside the country, after acquiring education in Jamia people are establishing their prestige in the fields of education, Teaching and journalism today. And these services are not only in the field of education but the medical centre, computer literacy and managements of food, scholarship, accommodation and treatment for the students are also the parts of Jamia's social services. Three thousand students are enrolled in Jamia and their educational Degrees are credible in all over the world. Here in Jamia magazines of highly standard in four languages (Urdu, Arabic, English are Sindhi) are being published. In future to render these services in high level Jamia is presenting the project of Farooqia Islamic University, in order to use its approaches and experience for the future enlightenment and educational progress of the country.

Allah has granted uncountable abilities to Hadhrat Shiekhul Hadeeth Mualana Salimullah Khan Sahib. He is the Rector of Jamia Farooqia and also holds the position of the President of the vast network of Islamic universities and religious Madaris (Wifaqul Madaris Al Arabia Pakistan) since long. And he has performed a historical work in the reformation of madaris. Taking pride in the guidance of Hadhrat Shiekhul Hadeeth Jamia hopes that this future plan under the supervision of Hadhrat Shiekhul Hadeeth would be a reason of benefits for the whole country.

Although in view of contraction, many important and needful objectives have not been mentioned in detail, but it is obvious, that no sagacious person can deny their gravity. Hence this future plan of Farooqia will be a rarity for Pakistan, particularly the backward and outlying areas of Karachi, such as the area of this project, where is a domination of ignorance and poverty. Disappointed youth resort to commit different types of crimes and also use so many abominable means to cut their lives. This results in destruction of young generation. Due to its limited sources the City Government is unable to solve these problems. 

In above mentioned situations it is unavoidable for those institutions with certain fame for their best policy and experience, come ahead, utilize their approaches for the well being of ailing humanity. Farooqia is ready to use its man power and approaches for this grand purpose, and considers it a title of honour to supply these services. May Allah grant us ability and accept our efforts. (Ameen)

Masjid (Mosque) is the essential part of any institution. After reaching Madinah Rasoolullah (SallAllaho alaihe wa sallam) constructed Majid, and considered the whole world as Masjid. This is why considering the Masjid as the centre of virtues we are commencing this grand project with the construction of Masjid. At our place besides Salaah Masjid is used for many other important and essential purposes also, such as congregation place and examination hall. After construction this central Majid (Mosque) of Jamia would be a parable in Karachi.

    Central Jamia Masjid for 5000 persons along with toilets, store and ablution (Wudhu) place.

      Small Mosque for Farooqia Medical Hospital for 200 persons along with all the facilities.

In view of the significance and dignity which Allah has bestowed upon Pakistan in the Islamic World, the provision of Higher Islamic education in this country has become imperative to preserve this unique identity.

At present, the prevalent negative concepts regarding Islamic education in the world demand that those Islamic institutions with certain fame in the world impart even better and more refined education which should reflect Islam and Pakistan in the true sense.

Therefore Farooqia has thought over a policy of making the highly effective education available to all seekers in future for which the curriculum is being designed comprising the subjects such as economics, banking, insurance and history etc.

Unlike other religions the most prominent heritage of the Muslim world is the learning of their Holy Book 'Quraan'. Muslim children learn Quraan with great enthusiasm, and are known as Hafiz Quraan.

For this purpose the construction of a building (Darul Quraan) has become very important. Therefore to meet this requirement we need the following buildings.

For the time being we are constructing a building with 100 rooms, according to the given below plan, to provide teaching and accommodation facilities to the students.

We request you to pray Allah Almighty for its early completion and for those people who have participated in the project.

First Floor Plan of Darul Quraan

Front Elevation of Darul Quraan

The need of science in related with tradition i.e. Hadeeth (Ilme-Hadeeth) holds great importance in Islamic knowledge. Pakistan is the only country, where the efforts to impart ilme- Hadeeth are still being made. And these efforts should continue to preserve this knowledge for the entire world. In view of this need, Farooqia wants to construct a big hall as Darul-Hadeeth, to impart the teachings of prophet (SallAllahu alaihi wasallam). The size of the hall is given below.

    One large hall of 50 X 100 ft. with all the facilities

The Muslims all over the world keep in touch with ulema for inquiring about religious problems. And through this guidance they strive to spend their lives according to Shariah. And this right of Muslims to spend their lives according to their religion is accepted internationally and also a part of international charter. Darul Ifta of the entire Islamic world work for these purposes and the Muslim jurists fulfill the responsibility of religious guidance. Making this sacred management a part of our plan we need these following buildings for Darul Iftaa.

    4 large size rooms for Darul Iftaa with all the facilities.
    10 rooms for specialization classes in Islamic learning with all the facilities.
    5 large size rooms for meeting and consultations with all the facilities.

In the passing era, worldly education is playing a pivotal role in the worldly progress of any country. Similarly Pakistan also badly needs highly qualified people for its economic and industrial growth. Our new generation depends on us for its future growth; therefore we are to take some solid and serious steps to quench their future thirst. In view of the future requirement of our young generation, Farooqia has resolved to establish Farooqia Model Secondary School.

For this we need to construct the following buildings.

    Class rooms for 1000 students.
    Laboratories for Science students.
    All the necessities and facilities, e.g. toilets, water cooler etc.
    5 rooms for offices of teaching and non-teaching staff with all the facilities.

In the current modern era, computers have secured an overwhelming position in almost every field of life and it won't be unjustified to mention that computers and development process are inseparable and closely related to each other. Ignoring or giving less attention to computer education in today's modern world would mean taking the nation backward and plunging it into the darkness of ignorance and illiteracy.

Therefore to equip the upcoming generation with all the modern tools of education and their future enlightenment, Farooqia has made the establishment of Farooqia Computer Institute an essential part of its agenda where higher computer education would be imparted to seekers.

For this we need to construct the following buildings.

    20 rooms for computer lab for 500 students.
    5 rooms for teaching and non-teaching staff with all the facilities.

Books and knowledge can never be parted from each other, and they should not be considered two different things. No matter how much the society has progressed, the importance of books and libraries is never going to decay. A good and well-equipped library has always been a dream and an eternal need of an Alim and a research scholar. But unfortunately the deteriorating interest shown by the people towards libraries and venerating books has resulted in the libraries become extinct and insipid in our city. Farooqia has firmly decided to patch up this deficiency. So for this purpose we need to construct the following buildings. 

    Spacious building for 500,000 books.
    10 reference rooms for research scholars with all the facilities.
    5 store rooms.
    One office for Chief Librarian.
    Photostat shop.

As we can see in the current era that very less number of people seem interested in the acquisition of Islamic education. Therefore there has been a dire need to form a committee of such dedicated, pious and devoted people who can make the welfare Services, rendered by Farooqia, easily available to all the people and propagate the message of Islam. To achieve the very purpose, Farooqia has initiated the training programme for some technical people belonging to different fields of life and the need of the establishment of Farooqia technical college has been much stressed for acquiring the same goal.

For this we need to construct the following buildings.

    Class rooms for 500 students
    Laboratories for 500 students 
    5 rooms for teaching and non-teaching staff with all the facilities.

Tibb-e-Unani is highly associated and deeply rooted with Persian and Arabic knowledge and their scheme of things and many renowned physicians of the past came to be known as Ulemai Islam. Taking the same past reality of Tibb-e-Unani into consideration, Farooqia has stressed the need of establishing a Unani Tibbi College. Hakim Muhammad Saeed can be considered as a good instance in this connection.

For this we need to construct the following buildings.

    Class rooms for 500 students of 4 years course.
    Laboratories for 500 students.
    5 rooms for teaching and non-teaching staff with all the facilities.

To train a teacher is to help shape the right world. Good teachers represent a good society and vice versa. Without good and effective teachers, thinking of making a good society is just a futile work and will bear no fruit. Here we need to ponder over some important questions like how the teachers can become good and effective teachers and how well and meaningfully they can perform their concerned responsibilities. These are some very essential aspects for which teacher-training programmes are being organized all over the world. Realizing the same need, Farooqia has also made the teacher- training programme an essential part of its agenda. So for this purpose we need to construct the following buildings. 

    10 large size rooms for teacher's training 
    One mini library.
    5 rooms for teaching and non-teaching staff with all the facilities.

Arabic language enjoys a distinctively important position in the world. This fact can be known by casting a glance on the world map, which tells us how important Arabic language is, because, at present, in around twenty big countries of the world Arabic is being used as the official language. According to the Islamic point of view the importance of Arabic language with references to Quraan, Hadeeth and Fiqah speaks for itself, and being at home in Arabic language is considered to be the sole objective of the faculty of Maahadut Lughatul Arabia. In Farooqia, Karachi this faculty has rendered its services for the last nineteen years and produced such qualified teachers who have earned a good name not only in Pakistan but abroad as well which is no doubt a big credit for our country.

Serving the afflicted humanity bears a momentous position in Islam. The life of human's benefactor Prophet (SallAllaho alaihe wa sallam) is full of human and social services.

Keeping this in view a medical centre has rendered its services for the last many years, under the supervision of Liaqat Medical hospital, (a renowned medical hospital).

To meet with even larger medical needs, a big hospital of Farooqia is under consideration. Establishment of this hospital must be a great service for the poor inhabitants of Hub River Road and suburbs, which have remained deprived of proper medical facilities for ages.

The praise worthy efforts of Hamdard Laboratories is the best example in this connection. And a separate building will be provided for this project.

Today the scarcity of room is a big problem faced by many educational institutions in cities. Due to this problem the villagers cannot acquire education in cities, and it has also been a reason of perturbation for city governments since long. To solve this problem such educational institutions should be established out side the city, where the facilities of education and accommodation should be provided. Along with these facilities, moral trainings should be given to students to keep them away from the bad effects of the society. That's why the facility of hostel has been considered a big part of Jamia's future plan, where accommodation and food facilities will be provided. A detailed map of this project is attached.
