Chairman's Message

  • “Seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave”
  • “Seek knowledge even if it is as far as China”
  • “Seeking of knowledge is a duty of every Muslim”
  • “Wisdom is the lost property of the believer, he should take it even if it is in the mouth of a Mushrik.

The distinctive mark of humans among the entire creation of Allah (SWT), including those in the angelic realm is knowledge. Quran’s very first revelation starts with the word:
“Read. Read in the name of thy lord who created…..(96:1-5)
And Allah taught Adam all the names ….(2: 31),( indeed all the names implies all the knowledge).
Are those who have knowledge equal to those who do not have knowledge? (39: 9)

According to Quranic perspective, knowledge is a prerequisite for the creation of just world in which authentic peace can prevail. Further, the concept of knowledge was all encompassing, without the division of secular(duniawi) and religious(deeni) education. During the early centuries of Islam, Muslims were master of both in light of the Quranic prescription of excellence and well-being in this world and the hereafter.

It was a considered fact that both science and religion(spirituality) are the two faces of the same ultimate reality and the real success will come only if we, as a Ummah, strive to excel simultaneously in both fields.

The establishment of the AZAM WELFARE & EDUCATIONAL SOCIETY and HERA PUBLIC SCHOOL is an earnest endeavour to achieve those higher purposes in the path of Allah through sincere and selfless service to humanity, indeed to all creations. May Allah SWT give us the strength, perseverance and bestow his mercy to keep striving, come what may.

JazakAllah Hu Khairan
