Teaching and curriculum of Darul Uloom

 
 
By Manzar Bilal, TwoCircles.net,

Part 3 of the seven part TwoCircles.net series on Darul Uloom Deoband

After the failure of 1857 freedom war, the British East India Company started to target especially Muslims as the commanders of the movement were mostly Muslims. The government hung thousands of Ulema and shut down many madarsas.

Under these circumstances, a group of learned theologians led by Maulana Qasim Nanotvi established Darul Uloom seminary on 15th Muharram, A.H. 1283 (May 30, 1866) in Deoband, UP , in order to train the youth with the necessary Islamic knowledge. They deliberately decided to keep it aloof from political or government participation.

At that time no one could imagine that the seminary whose foundation stone was laid down in a small village would be famous all over the world because of its educational services. Many illustrious personalities rose up from this teaching institution, innumerable scholars were fostered in its laps, and thousands of Ulama, Shaikhs, traditionists, jurisconsults, authors and experts of other arts and sciences were produced here.

The products of this historical educational centre , besides in this sub-continent, are busy in performing religions and academic services in various other countries also, and everywhere they have acquired a prominent status and have provided the service of religious guidance of the Muslims.

Darul Uloom Deoband curriculum based on the 12th century Hijri Indo-Islamic syllabus prepared by Mulla Nizamuddin Sahalvi which is known as Darse Nizami. More attention was being paid to Quran, Hadeeth, Islamic jurisprudence, Islamic law or Shariah, traditional Islamic theology. The current syllabus consists of four stages: Primary, Middle, High, Masters (Post-graduate stage). Primary is from first year to fourth year of Arabic, Middle from fifth year to seventh year and High is eight year. After the successfully completion of these eight year student becomes eligible for receiving the graduate degree (Sanad-e-Faraghat) of Darul Uloom.

The post-graduate class is not compulsory; if the student wants to acquire expertise in any subject or topic, he can take admission in the post-graduate class and continue his education but these classes are only for Darul Uloom graduates.

Darul Uloom conduct entrance test every year immediately after Ramadhan where thousands of students from across the country as well as from some other country come to participate. In this year over 10,000 students appeared in the test. Of them 1000 were selected for different classes. Recently, around four thousands students are boarding at hostel of Darul Uloom. The institution boasts a library of around 67,000 printed books and manuscripts in Arabic, Persian and Urdu in different arts and skill where students quench their thirst of knowledge.

 
 

Historic conf. of Jamiat Ulema begins in Deoband; Darul Uloom keeps aloof

 
TCN in Deoband

By Manzar Bilal, TwoCircles.net,

Deoband: Deoband is a place where programs and symposiums are not new. Because of South Asia’s greatest Islamic seminary Daraul Uloom on its land, Deoband has witnessed several kinds of religious and other programs time to time. But it is first time in the 90-year-history of Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind (JUH) when it is organizing its 30th Ijlase-Aam (general conference) in Deoband. But the seminary is officially keeping itself aloof from the program, making it clear that it does not want to take side of either faction of the oldest Muslim organization in India.

A large number of people especially Ulema and dignitaries from across the country have gathered here at the call of JUH to deliberate and find out the solution of the problems of Muslims in India and all over the world.

The national president of JUH Maulana Qari Usman inaugurated the first session of three-day program in the evening on Ist November by hoisting Jamiat’s flag followed by recitation of its song.

The conference formally began with the recitation of the Quran by Qari Shafeeq sahib, teacher of Darul Uloom Deoband while Maulana Usman Muzafferpuri recited some copulates in the praise of Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him).

The president of the reception committee, Maulana Haseeb Siddiqi who is also the chairman of Nagarpalika Parishad of Deoband presented the welcome speech. He thanked the delegates from across the country for their cooperation with JUH.

“During last days of his life late president of Jamiat Maulana Asad Madni handed over leadership of JUH to his son Maulana Mahmood Madni and presented him as a future leader of JUH. I remember that after the demise of his father when he took responsibility of JUH he said that he dreamed to see the Muslims to live their lives in the country with dignity and respect and he has been trying much to get his dream true” said Maulana Siddiqi.
.
The senior leader of JUH and MP Maulana Mahmood Madni said: “JUH has been guiding Muslims and will do the same. It worked for the welfare of the community and country since its foundation and will be doing in the future. We are here to decide what to do in next.”

He also said that JUH is not only a platform of Muslims but also a sign of proud for the country.

“JUH is not a political organization and nor will it be so in future but it will be taking decision for the welfare of the community and making efforts to solve the problems” he added.

Maulana Hakeemuddin, the general secretary of JUH, presented the annual secretly report.

“To serve their wrong purposes and greed some extremist elements tried to link Muslims with unlawful activities, so, Jamiat Ulema-e Hind has been defending on the behalf of Muslim community. For that it has been holding conferences in different part of the country which have left positive impact.” said Maulana Hakeemuddin adding “Last year Jamiat held its 29th ijlase-e-aam on 8&9 November in Hyderabad which was attended by then AP chief minister YS Reddy who announced to remove the problems of constructing of masjids in the state. Afterwards Bangalore, Mumbai and Bhoneshver conferences were organized that created peaceful environment and sent positive message to the world.”

Maulana Qari Usman, president of JUH urged the people to come with Jamiat to defeat communalism and terrorism and to promote secularism.

“After the discussion with Ulema and leaders we will put the problems of the community before government and will appeal to them to solve as soon as possible” he said.

An especial issue of weekly ‘Al-Jamiat’ Ydgar Majallah was also inaugurated on the occasion by the JHU president.

It is to be noted that Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind has special relation with Darul Uloom Deoband because most of its founders and presidents as well as officials from the day of establishment till the date have been products of Darul Uloom. That is why when any program was held by Jamiat in the past, whole Darul Uloom participated in that actively.

But after the death of ex-president of JUH, Maulana Asad Madni dispute was erupted between two products of Deoban – Asad Madni’s brother Maulana Arshad Madni and son Maulana Mahmood Madni – for the presidential post. Since then both have claimed the leadership of the organization and eventually caused faction in it. It was time for Darul Uloom to take strong decision to separate itself from this infighting. Executive committee of Darul Uloom in a landmark decision issued notice to both to accept either post of Jamiat or Darul Uloom. Thus it separated itself from the dispute.

Now today when one group of JUH is holding the conference in Deoband, Darul Uloom once again took a good decision to separate itself from that. Though teachers and any individual were not banned to attend the program there is no changing in daily routine of educational activities in the seminary. Consequently, teachers and students are busy in academic schedule as usual.

This must have hurt the organizers if they had thought that holding of this program in Deoband will send a message across that the seminary is with them.

A tour of Deoband: a city of global importance

 
 
Deoban series- first part

Deoband is on the world map thanks to a famous institution that was established here in 1866. Manzar Bilal of TwoCircles.net, a Darul Uloom’s graduate visited Deoband recently to give us a glimpse of life in this city and its famous madrasa. First part of the seven part series.

By Manzar Bilal TwoCircles.net,

Famous for all the wrong reasons, Deoband is a city in the district of Saharanpur, Uttar Pradesh. It is located at about 150 km North of Delhi. Deoband used to be surrounded by thick forests called Devi Van, or 'the Forest of the goddess' and with the passage of time it became Deoband.

Deoband is one of the ancient cities in the country. Maulana Zulfiqar Ali counted it in his book among those towns which came up after the deluge of Noah. The presence of Muslims in the city is since early 13th century. According to the census of 2001, the city has a population of 1, 61,706. Muslims constitute 65% of the population. It has an average literacy rate of 70%.

There are hundreds of mosques in the city. Some of them were built during the Delhi Sultanate and Mughal rule. Masjid Qila reminds us of the time of Sultan Sikander Lodhi (1488-1517 A.D.), Masjid Khanqah came up during the regime of Akber (1555-1605 A.D.) and Masjid Abul Ma’li during the reign of Aurungzeb (1657- 1706 A.D.).

Deoband is on the world map because of Darul Uloom, one of the most important and influential schools of Islamic Studies. It is best known all over the world for contribution of great Islamic scholars and authorities of Islamic jurisprudence and also for the centre of publication of books and publishing houses. The adjoining areas of Deoband have a large number of relics and tombs of great figures of Islamic history of the Indian subcontinent.

Besides Darul Uloom, Deoband has several other educational institutions. Among those- Darul Uloom waqf, Madrsa Asgharia, Jamia Imam Anwer, Jamia Tibbiya, College of Unani Medicine, Inter College, Tehsil School, Islamia Higher Secondary School, Sanskrit Mahavidyalaya, Public School, Vidya College, B.ED College and Madani Technical Institute deserve special mention.

When you get down from the train at Deoband station, you will be welcomed by rickshaw-wallahs crying ‘Darul Uloom, Darul Uloom, Darul Uloom’ and sometimes your luggage will be snatched and a rickshaw selected for you. When you sit on the rickshaw, they will drive it so fast in narrow streets that if you are new you will be scared but fear not as they are the experts.

After some minutes traveling by rickshaw from the station you will reach Tehseel office where the main market of the city called ‘Mina Bazar’ is located. Here you will find both Muslims and non-Muslims shopkeepers sitting in their shops. From right here you will encounter a sea of young men with skull caps. These are Madarsa student who have come to market for their needs.

When you proceed further, you will see a number of book stalls, publishing houses and shops of other things related to education on both sides of road where daily students of madrasas throng. Books worth of lakhs of rupees are dispatched every day from here to different part of the country as well as abroad. Presence of thousands of student not only of Darul Uloom but also of a large number of madarsas patronize several garment shops, hotels and tea stalls providing business opportunity to residents of the area.

Though Deoband is a world famous town and it has succeeded in drawing people form across the global still it is not a developed city though for the last few years it is getting better. Many new colonies are coming up. The pucca roads have been constructed from streets to streets and some parks are also built where people can take in fresh air but there is a lot to do concerning hygien and cleanliness as you will find garbage on the roads at several places including near Darul Uloom.

If you go to other side of the city, there are bus halts, hospitals, banks, telephone exchange and offices. This is Muzaffarnagar-Saharanpur road, which divides the area into Muslim and Hindu majority population on either side of the road.

Thanks to the Muslim population, Muslims have been occupying the chairman post of the municipal board of the city. Years back, late Maulana Habibur Rahman Usmani, the ex-rector of Darul Uloom was the chairman for several years and now it is headed by Maulana Haseeb Siddiqi who is a product of Darul Uloom.

“Muslims are financially in moderate position in the city as by the virtue of many educational centres literacy rate is good here but there are also a number of those who are working on daily wage and pulling rickshaws” said Nadeemul Wajdi, editor of Urdu monthly Tarjuman-e-Deoband.

“Muslims and Hindu are living here have friendly relations and they are busy in their own works. Some years back Praveen Togadia visited the city and try to spread the poison of communal tension but local Hindus did not give him positive response. Hence, the environment of the city remained calm and peaceful” he added.

Noted Urdu journalist and grandson of Allama Anwar Shah Kashmiri, Maulana Azhar Shah Qaiser said: “This historical city has been an example of communal harmony. In 1992 when violence spread out in several parts of the country a student was gunned down by police as he came out of Madarsa campus which angered the students but administration of Darul Uloom controlled them. In my opinion, it is because Muslims and Hindu are living in almost separate areas and also it is a place of Sufi saints and religious personalities who always made efforts for the cause of good relation between the communities.”

Daily life of Darul Uloom students

 
 
By Manzar Bilal, TwoCircles.net,

Part 4 of the seven part TwoCircles.net series on Darul Uloom Deoband

Hosting thousands of students, Darul Uloom Deoband has plenty of living rooms for boarding students in numerous hostels. These rooms are of different category; rooms of single bed, two, three…till twelve beds. Dare Jadeed, Ruwaq-e- Khalid, Shaikhul Hind Manzil, Shaikhul Islam Manzil, Hakimul Ummat Manzil, Afriqi Manzil and Darul Quran are some of the magnificent building in Darul Uloom campus.

Students are given the places in hostels on account of their marks they get in finals and if new then in the entrance test. Better marks in the exam translate to better room. Thus if a student was in room of sixth bed ,for example, last year and he gets good marks in annual exam, he is eligible to change his bed and get place in a room with only five beds.

Daily instruction in this world famous Islamic seminary is divided into six periods, four in the morning session and two in the afternoon session but in Daur-e Hadeeth (final year of Arabic) there are two additional periods; one is after Maghrib prayer and second is after Isha prayer.

Fifth year student Shafqat Ali is from Araria, Bihar. His day starts with offering Fajr prayer followed by recitation of some verses of the glorious Qur’an.

“Between Fajr prayer and class time, we do not have much time. Therefore, after finishing recitation of Qura’n, we become busy in preparation of breakfast with my friends. We try to reach class before period bell is rung because if teacher enter the class room before us, he would mark me absent and next day he may punish,” Ali said.

“After completion of fourth periods, we have three hours hiatus. After getting lunch from the mess, we eat with our friends, then we find some time for siesta. Having offer Zuhar prayer once again, we are ready for classes,” added Shafaqat Ali.

“Only between Asr to Maghrib we have time to go out of campus for a walk otherwise whole day busy in academic activities, after Maghrib we revise our lessons while after Isha we prepare for next day classes” said Shakir Azam, a sixth year student from Nepal.

Students of first to fourth years revise their lessons after Maghrib and Isha under the watchful eyes of their teachers at Masjid-e-Rasheed. Teachers also take attendance every day and the absent students are accountable before the director of education while students of fifth year to seventh year tend to their lessons on their own by group discussions. Final year students attend the classes not only after Maghrib but also after Isha till late night. They are so busy lives that they do not find sufficient time to sleep.

“Hum log Daure Hadeeth(last year of fazilat course) main hain isliye daurte hi rahte hain .. From first period we start to attend the class and take breath of rest in late night” told Sarfaraz who came here on educational visa from Bangladesh.

This is Zaki Anwar standing in queue for receiving lunch from mess. He seems somehow embarrassed.

“I do not have enough time for completion of my homework but it is not less than a tragedy that I have to spend my valuable time here every day. I think Darul Uloom should take immediate positive decision regarding two things; first for ending the queue system for food and launch new style as in other institutions because this system kill our precious time, second for changing the food items as we are provided with the same thing every day for lunch and dinner. Therefore, we have to cook additional items which take much time,” said Zaki Anwar from Bijnor, UP.

It is to be noted that Darul Uloom provides lunch and dinner to all boarding students. In both lunch and dinner they are given breads and Qorma and also Biryani three times in a month.

Educational environment at Darul Uloom is high. Not to speak about class time, students are busy in studying and memorizing their books every time even a number of them after Asr which is free time for enjoy. To study till 12pm is daily routine for students but in exam season there is no difference of day and night.

“During class days we concentrate on our current lessons but when exam schedule is declared, we have to make extra ordinary efforts for covering previous lessons to perform well in exam. This is my final year so we want get good marks because we want to take admissions in post-graduate class here and it depends on good marks as only some students are selected on the basis of marks obtained in final exam,” expressed Ghufran from Darbhanga, Bihar.

 

 

Though students have busy lives here but they do find some times for their extra curricular activities. They take parts in Anjuman activities to improve their speaking and writing skills. There are many Anjumans (clubs) almost for every district’s students a separate one which have libraries. These Anjumans hold weekly programs on every Thursday for their members and also publish wall magazines where they practice their writing ability. Several elocution competitions and essay competitions during the year are also organized by the Anjumans to increase the interest among student.

 

Masjid –e-Rasheed: A magnificent mosque at Darul Uloom

 
 
By Manzar Bilal, TwoCircles.net,

Part 5 of the seven part TwoCircles.net series on Darul Uloom Deoband

Founder and administration of Darul Uloom were fond of simplicity. Since its inception, they have been emphasizing on ground works and not on ostentation. Therefore, if someone would have gone to Deoband 15 years ago, he would have been surprised to see that the place that produced legendary Islamic scholars, authors, and thinkers has all simple buildings within its campus.

Like the changes happening all around, many new buildings have been constructed here, the old and famous buildings are being renovated. New library is also under construction as old building of library does not have any more room.

Among four mosques of seminary, newly constructed Jam-e-Rashid is distinguished and worth noting. The beautiful Masjid with charming dome and sky-scraping splendid towers attract the visitors. At first look, one can consider it as constructed in Islamic advent. Vast ground, long gallery of either sides of central gate and enough space at outside made it more attractive.

In moonlit night, white stone tiles used in mosque present scene of Taj Mahal which calls visitors to sit there for sometimes. A small but neat cistern and garden with carefully tended flowers outside make this very beautiful. Not to speak about students, a sizable number of people are always found there who come to see the mosque from far and wide.

When administration of Darul Uloom decided to build this mosque they did not even think that mosque would end up such beautiful but no sooner the construction began than community started to donate to unexpected amount which caused them to change the earlier plan. However, it took 20 years and much money to arrive at present structure.

The mosque has 120 feet soaring dome, 180 feet tall minarates and five doors. It has space for 20 thousands namazis at a time.

Late president of Jamia’t Ulema -e- Hind Maulana Asad Madni, had been doing etakaf (meditation with seclusion) with his hundreds of disciple during the Ramadan till his death. Now his son Maulana Mahmood Madani is doing the same.
