JAMIA ANWAR UL ULOOM
The traditions set by Jamia Anwar-ul-Uloom are deeply rooted in the quest of Islamic and spiritual knowledge. The journey that spans over three quarters of a century started when a young man from Amroha, who had been treading the path to acquire knowledge, decided it was time to form a base in the city of Multan. And thus the foundation of Jamia Anwar ul Uloom was laid in 1944.
