Education – QJSP

طلب العلم فريضة على كل مسلم ومسلمة

It is compulsory for every Muslim Man and every Muslim Woman to seek knowledge

Rasulullah SA

Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin RA strongly believed that education is the key to a society that is peaceful, respectful of differences and forward looking; and education is essential for communal harmony and religious tolerance.  He founded the The Qutbi Jubilee Scholarship Program (QJSP) in 2011 on the eve of the Golden Jubilee celebrations that commemorated the 50 years of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin Saheb RA as Dai al Mutlaq, and Syedna Khuzaima Qutbuddin’s as his Mazoon (second in hierarchy) and Mansoos (successor).

Zahra Hasanaat aims to help students fulfill their educational goals and to achieve their full potential — ensuring that financial incapacity would never stand in the way in way of their success. Inculcating the values of good character, education and community service, that guide and nurture students, while appreciating and rewarding the commitment of good teachers and encouraging good schools — form its key mandate.
