Islam is a religion of peace, moderation, and progress, yet the Western media portrays our faith in a negative light and as synonymous with terrorism. Muslim seminaries, which educate students to classical Islam while isolating them from the modern world, have not met the challenge.
In light of the religion class’s rigidity, this university intends to introduce students to Islam teachings in a moderate setting so that they can accurately reflect the belief.
A BS in Islamic Studies is a rigorous degree that provides a complete understanding of Islamic beliefs and ideas. It fosters curiosity among students by involving them in Islamic research projects.
The department seeks to realize the long-held dream of establishing a balance between the pristine values of Islam as expressed in the Holy Qur’an and Sunnah and the practical realities of current times.
This department strives to develop a spirit of dispassionate investigation, resulting in chiseled brains steadfast in belief yet endowed with tolerance, without, of course, apologizing. Highly qualified academicians have been engaged to focus on achieving excellence in teaching and research. The faculty will help the university grow intellectually, culturally, and socially.

Eligibility requirements for BS Islamic studies are not high. Students can easily get admission. The general eligibility requirement for BS Islamic studies is an intermediate degree (F.A/FSc) or equivalent. Universities admit students for BS Islamic studies using an open merit-based approach. The eligibility criteria for BS Islamic studies vary year after year in all universities, based on the students’ grades.
Islamic Studies is a compulsory subject up to graduation level in Pakistan, hence MA Islamic Studies degree holders have far more employment chances in the education sector than Master degree holders in any other field. Islamic studies also prepare you for CSS, PMS, PCS, NTS, and departmental recruitment tests. Islamic Madrassas and schools also recruit higher degree holders in Islamiat. You might potentially acquire a job in any Muslim country. Islamic centers in Western countries may also hire your services, but this is entirely dependent on your job search technique. The Pakistan Army, Navy, and Air Force also hire religious lecturers. However, I respectfully beg that your primary goal in studying Islamiat be to get as much knowledge as possible about your beloved faith, Islam.
