It is regarded as one of the most established Islamic institutes[2] in Pakistan and has a huge following among both Islamic scholars and public. It mainly focuses on teaching Classical Arabic, Islamic theology and Hanafi jurisprudence fiqh by preparing scholars and experts in those fields through intensive Islamic law courses.
