Introduction

Hamdard University is the culmination of the vision of Shaheed Hakim Mohammed Said, Founder Chancellor of the University, President of Hamdard Foundation Pakistan and Founder President of Madinat al-Hikmah.He symbolized the ethos and aspirations of the Pakistani nation and their fulfillment as enshrined in the creation of the country by Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah and ideals set forth by poet-philosopher Allama Mohammad Iqbal. Hakim Said, in essence, carried forward the spirit, which guided the Muslim renaissance in the sub-continent through education, started by Late Sir Syed Ahmad Khan. The idea of Pakistan, according to Hakim Mohammed Said could only come to fruition if education became the hard rock of its foundation, harmonizing the imperative of modern life and the quintessential values of Islam.

Hamdard University is a giant step forward toward realizing the holistic perspective of higher education in which there is a well-rounded development of an individual, in which values of higher knowledge and advancement, material progress and prosperity are tempered with moral, spiritual, social and cultural norms and propriety.

Hamdard University ever since its inception is striving to achieve the highest standard of excellence in teaching and research, comparable to any international University and institute of repute. It has endeavored to mobilize enough resources to build the requisite infrastructure for imparting the latest knowledge and information in the diverse fields of science technology and professional disciplines.

The University attracts the best academic faculty of the country, who are not only competent in their fields but are models for students to emulate, who ignite the spirit of quest and inquiry and lay heavy premium on creativity and innovative thinking. The University doors are open for students of all strata of society, irrespective of faith and creed, but without compromising on merit, quality and competence the hallmark of our academic culture. We are committed to tolerance for others’ views and ideas and for preserving the values that sustain a pluralistic society.

The Founder

Shaheed Hakim Mohammed Said (1920-1998) established Hamdard Pakistan in 1948. Within a few years, the herbal medical products of Hamdard became household names. The phenomenal business success of Hamdard brands is a legendary part of the business history of Pakistan.
The name Hamdard, however, acquired a still wider meaning, when Hakim Mohammed Said founded Hamdard University in 1991. The establishment of a university which could enliven the intellectual tradition of the educational institutions of the golden era of Muslim civilization had always been his most cherished dream. In fact, it was the central point towards which all his endeavours were directed.

The actual appearance of the university was just the culmination of a long dedicated and continued effort spanning his whole life. However, apart from being a great educational leader, Hakim Mohammed Said was also one of the finest exponents of Eastern medicine, who had treated millions of patients from all over the world including Pakistan, Europe, Africa and the Middle East by the time of his martyrdom (Shahadat) in October 1998. In the fifty years of his active career as a practitioner of Greco-Arab medicine par excellence, Hakim Mohammed Said also achieved international renown as a scholar and researcher in medicine in recognition of his meritorious services and scholarly achievements when he was awarded Nishan-e-Imtiaz (Posthumous) by the Government of Pakistan in 2002.

As a prolific writer, he had to his credit a large number of books and articles. He edited many research journals and periodicals on medicine, history and Islam. Hakim Mohammed Said also created two very widely attended national for a: Hamdard Shura (for leaders of public opinion) and Naunehal Assembly (for children). He attended and read papers at numerous conferences all over the world and organized a number of international conferences for the promotion of science in Pakistan in collaboration with national and international organizations including UNESCO and WHO. He also held important offices and memberships of dozens of national and international organizations related to education and health care, the fields to which his contributions are universally acknowledged.

A man of Herculean intellectual and organizational capabilities, Shaheed Hakim Mohammed Said will be remembered most for creating Hamdard University, which he stewarded to appear as one of the top institutions of higher education and learning in Pakistan.

The Chancellor

Madam Sadia Rashid:

As I write this to you, Dear student – Prospective or Present – I will pay you the compliment of presuming you want an education – not just a Degree.

For those unfortunate enough to belong to the second category, there is little, if anything, to say. They would be satisfied with scraping through or even cheating. Then there‘s the ultimate low: A fake degree.

But for those who realize that there can be no true respect without self-respect, for those who want to learn, not just add a few initials after their name: Welcome to Hamdard University.

lts Founder-Chancellor, Shaheed Hakim Mohammed Said, wanted for its University – as for everything in Hamdard – a combination of the best of both worlds: the old and the new, the traditional and the modern, the principled and the pragmatic. Continuing to aim for his goals, we do our utmost to provide the best we can: of facilities, environment, faculty.
But as always and everything in life, it is a two-way street. Only a good student can truly value and gain from a good teacher. As the old adage says: “There are none so blind as those who will not see”. We can provide classrooms, computers, libraries, equipment, teachers; but only you can make use of them, only you can study, learn, prove your worth – not your parents, not your professors.

And the prize is well worth the effort. For true education is absorbed, assimilated, and enriches you. And these are riches no one can ever steal from you. Whatever you choose to do with your life, know that your Alma mater- and 1- wish you well, and pray for your success.

The Vice Chancellor

Prof. Dr. Syed Shabib Ul Hasan:

Hamdard University was envisioned by Shaheed Hakim Mohammed Said as a public-spirited Institution in order to expand educational opportunity in the country and at the same time to promote and pursue excellence in higher education. Since 1991, Hamdard University has developed a reputation for academic excellence and a firm commitment to its Founder Chancellor’s mission of making the continual contribution in the development of a pool of enlightened professionals committed to the service of others.

In pursuit of academic excellence, the University developed its core values at Islamabad Campus. Through its well-designed curricula, the Campus seeks to provide value-centered undergraduate and graduate education in the broad fields of engineering, pharmaceutical sciences and management sciences. With a focused approach, we are educating young men and women of different social and economic spectra to take leadership roles and to make a positive impact in a changing society. It provides an enabling environment for quality teaching, learning and research through its state-of-the-art facilities and renowned competent faculty to inculcate a vision in its graduates for attaining the inner freedom to make intelligent choices in their professional lives.

At all our Campuses, a diverse range of clubs and societies cater to many interests and students’ activities from debate competitions to sports. All our academic and co-curricular activities are rooted in the real world, ensuring that our students gain relevant learning experiences and knowledge that will put them at the cutting edge.

Mr Imtiaz Haider:

I warmly welcome all the aspiring students and their parents at Hamdard University Islamabad Campus. Following the vision of our founder, Chancellor Shaheed Hakim Mohammed Said Islamabad Campus is providing the best quality education at an affordable cost to its students for the last two decades.

Hamdard University Islamabad Campus (HUIC) located at 4-Park Link Road, Chakshahzad, Islamabad is a constituent of Hamdard University Karachi. HUIC is dedicated to excellence in the acquisition of knowledge and technological skills & enables its students to meet the challenges of the future in the global market. The Management strives for cultivating a spirit of dedication and commitment for which Shaheed Hakim Mohammed Said relentlessly struggled throughout his life; and to achieve the prime objective of his mission, he succeeded in establishing such remarkable institutions.

In line with the vision of its luminary Founder Chancellor, we are committed towards the moral grooming of our students not only to disseminate theoretical knowledge to them but also to make them good communicators, managers, collaborators, researchers and scholars in their respective fields of study. Nevertheless, our strength lies in our faculty and with our renewed pledge and resolve, we have strengthened and updated our programs and have concentrated upon offering new courses so as to keep us abreast of the rapidly changing market demand.

Further, with the spirited efforts of our team members, we have been able to enhance the quality of our value-based education and research in the fields of Pharmacy, Engineering and Management Sciences in order to produce a skilled workforce capable of contributing effectively by being part of the modern stream of organizations. Labs and libraries have been upgraded with the latest equipment to transform the learners into educated and responsible citizens for a promising future. It gives us immense pleasure and satisfaction when we see that our graduates are more conveniently absorbed in professional organizations at home and abroad. I am also pleased to announce that we have shifted to our own purpose-built campus at Chakshahzad, Islamabad.

I wish you all the very best in your academic pursuit and pray to Allah Almighty that your decision wins everyone around you.
