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.
