Khatim-ul-Ambia University (Hausary Madressa) Karachi - katrust@ymail.com  02136052446

The merit of a successful society is that it allows its people to prosper; accomplish individual, material & spiritual goals and grow under the guidance of scholars. On the other hand, the scholars themselves should be driven to assume the revered responsibility in order to successfully lead the society to immense heights.

Keeping in view this objective and the broader needs of Pakistan, especially Karachi, the resident scholars of Hauza-e-Ilmia (Qom) gathered a committee, to collectively address this vacuum. The committee later came to be known as the Khatim-ul-Ambia trust. Rising to its responsibilities, the said trust laid the foundation of the Khatim-ul-Ambia University (Hausary Madressa) in 2006. The primary purpose of this University is to produce scholars capable of directing the society toward the right path, one that is in accordance with the preaching and principles of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) and His Pure Ahl-ul-Bait (A.S.).
