Ali Ibn Abi Talib Institute, Teen Batti Chawk, Gola Ganj, Lucknow:Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh, is a well-known historical city of India that has traditionally been the centre of multifarious religious, literary and cultural activities. It has long been home to all sorts of political, literary and social and welfare activities being carried out by the adherents of different religious organizations for the furtherance of their own objectives and missions. The city, however, suffered from the absence of one important element- an educational institution that would provide the pure teachings of Islam exemplified by the Salafi School of beliefs and thought. Abul Kalam Azad Awakening Centre, New Delhi realized the need for the founding of such an institution in the city. It lost no time and in the first available opportunity purchased a building in a central place of the city for the purpose. May 2005 (Rabi' Al-Thani 1426) was the date when the hopes of the Centre saw their fruition and the Ali Ibn Abi Talib (residential) Institute witnessed its birth in that building with the objective of pursuing a comprehensive program of education that would represent a fine mix of the teaching of modern sciences as well as religious education and upbringing based on the teachings of the Qur'an and Sunnah. The Institute admits post-primary students for a four-year middle course (i.e. Arabic system) from lower level to the third (Middle) level. The course offers excellent teaching in Arabic language, grammar, eye-reading of the Qur'an as well as the translation of its meaning, its memorization and rules of recitation, Hadith and its terminology, Islamic beliefs and the creed of monotheism, Islamic Jurisprudence ( fiqh ) and its Foundations, English, Hindi, science and mathematics etc.
On successfully completing the course the students earn the title of being admitted to Jamia Islamia Sanabil, New Delhi for higher education.
Allah be thanked that currently students from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Bengal and Nepal are pursuing their studies in the Institute.
