Ghamidi Center of Islamic Learning
Javed Ahmed Ghamidi formed Al-Mawrid back in 1983 in Lahore, Pakistan in order to propagate Islam in it’s purest form as instituted by prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). Al-Mawrid U.S. was established in 2014 in order to expand the reach of Ghamidi’s effort. In 2019, Al-Mawrid U.S. took on the initiative of establishing the Ghamidi Center of Islamic Learning in Dallas, Texas as a formal educational institute.
Since inception, Al-Mawrid’s aim has been to conduct research, educate people, and disseminate Islam based purely on Quran and sunnah, freeing it from external influences that have gradually clouded the religious thought of Muslims over the last 14 centuries.
We aim to teach students to explore, understand, discuss, and practice Islam on the basis of reason, rationality, and objective thinking.
Teach Islam as a form of knowledge rather than as a creed.
Encourage students to explore faith in a welcoming, open, and an inquisitive manner.
Equip students with tools necessary to understand Islam on the basis of evidence from Quran and sunnah.
Be open to all truth seekers without gender, age, religion, or any other discriminating factors.
Our mission is to teach people how to explore, understand, discuss, and practice Islam on the basis of reason, rationality, and objective thinking.
We teach our students to value research over blind belief, reason over tradition, evidence over opinion, rationale over dogmatism, and discovery over imitation.
