A Brief Introduction of
Jamia Haqqania Akora Khattak
In 1947, when Sheikh ul hadith Maulana Abdul Haq came to his village Akora Khattak on holidays from Deoband, the partition of India and Pakistan started to take place, which is why going back to Deoband was a problem for him. Even though Hazrat Maulana Syed Hussain Ahmad Madani (R.H) offered him security all the way back on governmental level, his father did not allow him to go back in such uncomfortable conditions. And because now he was known as a successful teacher in Deoband, Students from all around started to head to Akora Khattak. Which is why in 1947 (A.D) he started to teach in a small nearby mosque, this was the year of the foundation of Jamia Haqqania.
