Al Jamiatul Ashrafia (Urdu: الجامعۃ اُلاشرفیہ‎, Hindi: अल जामियत-उल-अशरफ़िया) is the largest Islamic seminary of Sunni Muslims of India belonging to Barelvi school. 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 not only the subcontinent but the world 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]
