A Brief History Of Darul-Uloom London.
Darul-Uloom was established in 1989 and was founded by (Hadrat) Mufti Mustafa (Sahib). As a distinguished scholar of Islam he willingly sacrificed his time and effort to help the younger Muslim generation.
With little money and funding Mufti Mustafa ((sahib) bought two properties in forest gate London with the intention of establishing an Islamic institute. This was the first step towards improving the Muslim Ummah (nation) in London. Firstly with the help of Allah and through the support of devoted Muslim parents, within a scope of a year Darul-Uloom attracted 40 young enthusiastic students.
As with the tight financial situation, the students had to also bear hardships and difficulties, but they remained firm on their sincere zeal for knowledge. As a determined person Mufti Mustafa (Sahib) tolerated all ordeals and made an earnest effort to improve Darul-Uloom as a whole.
With in a short period of time Mufti Mustifa (Sahib) collected a sufficient amount of funding to move a step ahead. In early 1994 Mufti Mustafa (Sahib) paid a visit to Co-ed bell hostel. In the outer suburbs of London this small town Chislehurst, was to produce the foundation of the new Darul-Uloom. To achieve this goal was not an easy task. Despite all this, Mufti Mustafa (Sahib) never lost confidence and carried on striving. Once again with the infinite grace of Allah and the great support of local Muslims, the institute was bought.
After several months, in August 1994 the house of knowledge (Darul-Uloom) held its opening ceremony. This also became the first truly established Darul-Uloom in London. All this was achieved by a dedicated handful of individuals, who had devoted their lives, energy, effort and time for one sole purpose, to spread the knowledge of Islam.
