At the Zia Ul Ummah Foundation, we take pride in offering a comprehensive 3-year course designed to deliver high-quality Islamic education to underprivileged children in Pakistan. Recognising the limited access to education for many children from low-income backgrounds, who often find themselves confined to traditional religious schools, our program seeks to bridge this gap. Our mission is to provide a holistic education that encompasses both religious studies and academic subjects, aiming to empower these children with the knowledge and skills essential for success in life.
Our commitment to a well-rounded education goes beyond religious studies, incorporating vital academic subjects such as English, math, and science. While traditional religious schools may excel in providing a strong foundation in Quran, Tajweed, and Islamic studies, we believe in the importance of a diverse curriculum that equips students with the necessary skills and qualifications for higher education and future employment. Our unique blend of religious and academic studies is strategically designed to empower children, breaking the cycle of poverty through education and offering them a pathway to a more prosperous future.
In essence, our 3-year course is not merely about instilling religious knowledge but about fostering a comprehensive understanding that prepares students for success beyond the confines of traditional education. By offering a curriculum that combines religious teachings with essential academic skills, we aim to break down barriers and open doors to opportunities that empower these underprivileged children to thrive in their educational journey and beyond.

With your help, we’ve created generations of well-rounded students who know and understand Islam, and who also have the knowledge they need to escape poverty and provide for themselves and their families.

We give all our 30,000 students the option of studying Quran, Tajweed and Islamic studies alongside traditional subjects, so they don’t have to choose between their worldly and afterlife.
Our 3-year memorisation course advances students’ knowledge and understanding of Islam. It’s structured so they’re able to take their studies to university level and enter the world of Islamic scholarship, while also giving them the option to study traditional subjects at a higher level too. We’ve managed to create a balanced curriculum that offers the best of both worlds.
Our small classes of 15 to 20 students per scholar means students are given the close individual supervision they need for a quality education.
By the time they graduate, they’re modern beacons of Islam who are able to represent both their religion and country.
