THE DARS-E-NIZMI DIVISION
Madarassah

This is the branch of studies withies madarassahs, upen ample ion of which, a student becomes an "Alim", or in other words, a "Scholar of Religion." The books that are taught in this division are those which were divinely inspired chosen by Hazrat Molla Nizam-ud-din (Allah's mercy be upon him).

These books have stood the test of time, and ever after centuries, the benedit of these books is undisputed although, with changing times and trends, need is at times felt to modify the syllabus somewhat, a task that is impressively achieved by a board of expert scholars.

It is very unfortunate that some government circles and extremist oriented scholar today target the Dars-e-Nizami syllabus with baseless accusations ,calling for its complete overhaul , because the current system , accordiry to them , is "out of date" Howevers , this issue is not open to only sort of debale or discussion according to our illustrious scholars.This (branch division) comprises a total of 4 stages, each stage being duration of 2 years. At the end of each stage an exam is conducted under the Wifaq-ul-Madaris board.

The first exam is equivalent to a degree in Metric , the second being equivalent to an Inter degree, the third exam being equivalent to a B.A degree , and the fourth exam being equivalent to an M.A degree in both Arabic and Islamyat, with the approval of the university grants commission .so, a student who gradates from the Dars-e-Nizami course effectively obtains a double-Master's degree .

This division was started in our institute on the 8th of Shawwal 1423ah, 1 class being added each year, last year, we managed to start the 7th year class. A total of 163 students studied in these classes last year.
