Introducing Abul Hasanaat Islamic Research Center
This is the era of globalization. The world has turned into a global village. Internet had penetrated every nook and corner of the world. Within a moment, a piece of news can be sent around the whole world. Indecency is spreading in the society along with these modern means of communication. Because of misuse of these means, the young generation is being destroyed. Using these very means, the enemies of Islam are slandering Islam and are presenting it in a very bad light. Sometimes the laws of Islam are attacked and at other times Islamic culture is mocked and some other times, objections are raised to verses of the Holy Quran. In these volatile times, an acute need was felt to use the same means at a universal level to protect Islamic tenets of faith and to promote virtue and high morals and present the true picture of Islam to the world so that the Muslim Ummah is galvanized into reaching and even surpassing its past glory and turns away from falsehood for once and for all.
With these aims in mind, Mufti Syed Ziauddin Naqshbandi Qadri (May Allah protect him) founded Abul Hasanaat Islamic Research Center on 18th Dhul Hijjah, 1428 Hijri, which corresponds to 29 September, 2007. The registration number is 501/2008.
