All praise is due to Allah, the almighty who is the creator of the universe including the smallest as well as biggest creatures, heavenly bodies, forests, mountains, water bodies and everything else which a human mind can and can`t think of it. Allah, who made human beings the supreme creature on earth, put everything of the universe under his control and authorized him to use all types of resources judiciously in order to the best possible extent. He bestowed the humans with a supreme mental capacity and thus designated them as “Asraf-ul-Makhlookat”. To become a real “Ashraf-ul-Makhlookat” man needs to develop his mental and intellectual abilities to the maximum. For this he needs education or enlightenment which can be brought in through an educational institution, Jammu & Kashmir Anjuman-e-Sharie Shian made an attempt in this behalf by establishing Maktaba-ta-Zahra (s.a.) at Hassan Abad, Rainawari, Srinagar a renowned intellectual centre of District Srinagar.
Maktaba-ta-Zahra (s.a.) came into being some sixteen years ago with the main objective of providing educational facility to the female-children of Muslim community who were deprived so far of the same. The foundation of this prestigious institute was laid by Esteemed Hujatul Islam Wal Muslimeen Aga Syed Mustafa Almosavi Alsafvi in the year 1999. On seeing the educational backwardness of the female-folk of the Muslim community and enthused with a commitment to over come the same, he made a beginning by opening a Primary level institute in the Imambargah at Budgam in which at first 14 female-students were receiving education. With a view to provide a congenial and peaceful atmosphere and to provide better accommodation to the inmates, this institute was shifted to the present location. Hujatul Islam Wal Muslimeen Aga Syed Mohammad Taqi Mosavi, a veteran Islamic scholar was appointed as the first principal of this Institute. Though female-students came on their own from every knock and corner of the State to receive education and get enlightened, Aga Syed Mustafa Al-Mosavi, knocked at every door in Kashmir Valley to bring in and enroll the children in this institute. His sincere efforts bore fruit in terms of the responses from the public in general and the Muslim community in particular.
After the demise of Aga Syed Mustafa Al-Mosavi Al-Safavi, Aga Syed Hassan Al-Mosavi Al-Safavi was appointed as the President of J&K Anjuman-e-Sharie Shian and the responsibility was put on shoulder as Chairman and Patron. During his tenure as Chairman, Aga Syed Hassan Almosavi Alsafvi insisted upon Aga Syed Mohammad Taqi Al-Mosavi to act as as Principal of the Institution. The Institution is affiliated with University of Kashmir & Al-Mustafa International University of Islamic Republic of Iran. The Institution is also registered with Sub Auqaf Trust under Jammu & Kashmir Anjuman-e-Sharie Shian Darul Mustafa Shariatabad Budgam Kashmir.
