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 Supeme 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-Makhookat”.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 byestablishing Jamia Babul Ilm (JBI) in the midst of Budgam town a renowned intellectual centre of erstwhile District Srinagar.
Jamia Babul Ilm Budgam came into being some six decades ago with the main objective of providing educational facility to the 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 Yousuf Almosavi Alsafvi when he returned from NAJAF ASHARAF (IRAQ) In 1370 H i.e;1949 A.D.On seeing the educational backwardness of the muslim community and enthused with a commitment to over come the same,he made a beginning nby opening a Primary level institute in the main town of Budgam in its centre.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 in 1998.
Hujatul Islam Wal Muslimeen Aga Syed Mustafa Mosavi Alsafvi,a veteran Islamic scholar was appointed as the first principal of this institute in the same year.Though students came on their own from every knock and corner of the state (& even from outside the state viz;meerut and lucknow) to receive education and get enlightened,Aga Syed Mustafa knocked at every door in Kashmir valley to bring in and enroll the children in this institute.This remarkable fruit interms of the responses from the public in general and the Muslim community in particular. After the demise of Aga Syed Yousuf Mosavi Alsafvi Najafi,Aga Syed Mustafa was appointed as the President of J&K Anjuman-e-Sharie Shian and the responsibility was put on shoulder as Chairam and Patron.During his tenure Aga Syed Hassan Almosavi Alsafvi was appointed as Principal of the Jamia Babul Ilm Oriental College Budgam. The College is affiliated with University of Kashmir & Almustafa International University of Islamic Republic of Iran.There are more than 200 other branches in Valley registered with Sub Auqaf Trust Under Jammu & Kashmir Anjuman-e-Sharie Shian Darul Mustafa Shariatabad Budgam Kashmir.
