Al-Huda International Welfare Foundation was founded in 1994 in Pakistan. It is striving to enlighten people with the knowledge of the Qur’an and Sunnah of the Prophet (saw) while serving the people through diverse social welfare programs. Alhamdulillah, not only in Pakistan but in many countries of the world, branches of Al-Huda are actively working to attain this objective. Following departments operate under this foundation. AlHuda International School (AIS), an aspiration of Dr. Farhat Hashmi, and a dream shared by thousands of Muslims within Pakistan and abroad; is a one of a kind school that provides excellent academic education based on Islamic guidelines. Founded in September 2010 in Islamabad, with a small team of dynamic, sincere and passionate individuals, AIS has grown into a well-recognized educational system within a short span of time. Born in Sargodha, Punjab, Pakistan in 1957, Dr Hashmi is the daughter of a well known Islamic scholar, and thus had her initial Islamic learning at home. Her father (Late) Abdur Rehman Hashmi was a prominent religious scholar and ranked 53rd in the noble generation of the companion, Ibn Abbas (r.a). Her father was responsible for instilling in her the desire to spread the word of Allah. Her innate genius and sincerity was coupled with a supportive and likeminded husband, Dr. Muhammad Idrees Zubair, also a scholar with special interest in “Hadith”.As a student, Dr Hashmi excelled throughout her academic career, winning numerous medals, prizes and scholarships. After completing her Bachelor’s degree from Sargodha Degree College, she did her Masters in Arabic from Punjab University, Lahore. Dr Hashmi started her career as a lec- turer in Sargodha Degree College. Soon after, she joined as a faculty member of the International Islamic University Islamabad. She was awarded with a merit scholarship to proceed for her Ph.D. in “Hadith Sciences” from the University of Glasgow, Scotland, which awarded her the title of “Doctor”.On her return, she again resumed teaching at the International Islamic University. While teaching at the University, she simultaneously continued conducting Quranic study circles for women. After realizing that there is a strong need for promoting the deeper understanding of Quran, she decided to establish a center of Islamic learning. This is how her brainchild, “Al-Huda International”, came into being in 1994 in Islamabad. Dr. Idrees Zubair is currently the Director of Al Huda International Welfare Foundation. In 1983, he began his career as a lecturer at the International Islamic University, Islamabad in the Department of Usool-ud-Deen. In 1985, Dr. Zubair went to the University of Glasgow, Scotland to pursue a Ph.D in Hadith Sciences with his wife Dr. Farhat Hashmi. He has previously held the position of Associate Professor in the Islamic Research Institute and also served as the Chairman of the Hadith Department at Allama Iqbal Open University. Dr. Zubair has lectured in different parts of the world and has taught diverse courses in Islamic Sciences. Dr. Zubair and his wife established Al Huda in 1994 with the aim of educating Muslims about the meanings of the Qur’an. Over the last two decades, Al Huda has expanded across many countries around the world with students numbering in the thousands.
