HISTORY

University of Lahore

Modern times have brought many new challenges for humanity and especially for Muslim world. These challenges are both at home and at international level. But it is unfortunate that traditional institutions have failed in genuine contribution for the solution of prevalent problems and proper response to the contemporary challenges. Furthermore, the traditional religious institutions have created a divide in the society.

The new generation educated through modern educational institutes and universities and those who are trained in traditional religious madrassas are poles apart in their understanding of Islamic teachings and their approach towards contemporary issues too. A comprehensive course which may have merits of both of these systems can bridge the gap. The University of Lahore has established the Department of Islamic Studies with the same vision and objectives that we may produce such learned scholars for society who have grip on the tradition and may have a mature understanding of the contemporary issues with a clear and perfect skill in the modern thoughts and academic approaches. These scholars will be able to present Islam in accordance with its real spirit before society.
