I urgently need information regarding madrassas throughout Pakistan. As you know the admission for Darse Nizami starts 1 week after eid, I need to make a swift decision.
I have already graduated from a very prestigious world ranking English university. Have now decided to pursue whole 8 year darse nizami programme in a traditional madrassa. I have good grasp of written and spoken urdu as I had my schooling in Pakistan. I will very much appreciate if knowledgeable brothers on this forum can provide me with some information and/or hints and any experience they would like to share.
From what I have gathered, I am interested in Jamia tur Rasheed. They have two streams: Darse Nizami (being my first choice) and Maahdul Rasheed (arabic medium darse nizami), however the maximum age limit for 'Maahdul Rasheed' is 16yrs (myself being in mid-twenties). I have heard praise for Jamiatul Husnain (managed by Maulana Tariq Jamil) especially due to there strength in arabic language, again there's age-factor going against me. As of now, I am considering the following madrassas:
Darul Uloom Karachi
Jamia Ibn Abbas ---> if they allow mature student
Jamiatul Husnain (Faisalabad) ---> if they allow mature student
Please note that I have absolutely zero understanding of Arabic language but, I wish to become proficient init to enable me to engage in Tahqeeq/Research and Tadrees, inshAllah, once I graduate.
I will be grateful if brothers here can help me with regards to madrassa and education system.
