Al Jamiatul Ashrafia (Urdu: الجامعۃ اُلاشرفیہ‎, Hindi: अल जामियत-उल-अशरफ़िया) is the largest Islamic seminary of Barelvi Muslims of India. It is located in Mubarakpur, in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.

History[edit]

It started off as a madrasa called Misbah al-Ulum in 1898 in the town of Mubarakpur of what was then British India.[1] It was named 'Ashrafia' after the most prominent Saint of the subcontinent Ala Hadrat Shah Ali Hussain of Kichaucha. After struggling for many years and moving locations several times, a new building was constructed using funds raised by Hafiz Abd al-Aziz Muradabadi. This was the site for the school now known as Dar al-Ulum Ahl-i Sunnat or Misbah al-Ulum.[2]

Realizing that the site was becoming too small, Hafiz Abd al-Aziz organized an educational conference in May 1972 to discuss moving Ashrafiyya to a larger campus. Scholars of the Barelwi Movement like Mustafa Raza Khan son of Ahmad Raza Khan and Allama Arshadul Qaudri laid the foundation stone with the mission of making it a University for Sunni Hanafi Islamic Ideology in 1972 at a site outside the city of Azamgarh.[3] Key figures such as Allama Ziyaul Mustafa, Allama Arshadul Qaudri, Qamaruzzaman Azmi worked hard with Abd al-Aziz Muradabadi to raise the required funds to build the institution.[4]

Set up of Sunni Board[edit]

In 1992, under the auspices of Al Jamiatul Ashrafia, Mobarakpur, the Jurisprudential Board was set up as a body of Muftis. Though the body incorporated all the renowned muftis of the sect, it was not long before a number of such bodies started mushrooming in the length and breadth of Jahan-e-Riza (the world of the followers of Imam Ahmed Riza Khan).[5]
