A Warm Welcome
Aljamea-tus-Saifiyah is the principal educational institute of the Dawoodi Bohra community. Its sole benefactor, His Holiness Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS, oversees and guides it in all its endeavours. The academy has been functioning from its present campus in Surat, India for over two centuries, with a sister campus inaugurated at Karachi, Pakistan in 1404/1983, a third campus established in Nairobi in 1432/2011. Our purpose is to provide young Dawoodi Bohra men and women with an education based on the principles of Fatemi philosophy. This philosophy encompasses tenets that have proven themselves over the centuries and also utilizes and incorporates advances in and understandings of contemporary, modern education. The eleven year program covers higher secondary, undergraduate, graduate and post graduate education. Though students specialise in select disciplines, our philosophy mandates that they acquire and appreciate a holistic view of different branches of knowledge. In this respect, we endeavour that our students are exposed to a range of subjects within the empirical sciences, social sciences and the humanities, as well as select modern languages.
For us, education is more than academics per se. It is a quest for excellence in all aspects of personality, imbibing morality as well as intellectualism. Furthermore, the fruition of the academy’s undertaking involves constant application of what is learnt, thereby bridging theory and practice.
Due to this philosophy, the academy is at once, ancient yet modern, focussed yet holistic in its outlook. It is this applied philosophy that gives us distinction. This website has been prepared to help visitors understand this philosophy and develop a greater appreciation of what it stands for.
