UMT is aware of the challenges being faced by Muslim communities today. Islam, undoubtedly the top religion of the world, is labeled by its opponents and orientalists as a religion of depravity, injustice and terrorism. This misrepresentation needs to be addressed and presented in national and global platforms through dialogue. The exigency requires us to develop such course of actions which includes advancement of education system and initiating programs that could meet the desired standards in multi disciplines. We have to prepare such intellectuals who are skilled at research and have knowledge of Seerah & Sunnah accompanied by contemporary education to represent the real identity of Islam according to the eminent characters it possess. We must have to incorporate and vivify the golden message hidden in the books of Seerah and Sunnah and from the lessons of history which is available in various spheres of practical fields of real life like business & trade, property rights, leadership & governance, human rights & social justice, global peace and women rights etc., to avoid any ambiguity and uncertainty. Our primary purpose is to align and brighten up the minds of youth by giving them a platform where they can acquire knowledge through utilizing modern and latest educational facilities backed by sate of the art infrastructure to enlighten their innate abilities towards the development of society through academic research, spiritual development and human welfare. In order to strengthen and transform the education from traditional to contemporary requirements, UMT has established the department of Seerah (Seerat Chair) particularly for promoting Seerah education for initiation and acceleration of research. We have launched recently a program named M.Phil. Islamic Studies (Major in Seeratun Nabi SAW).

  2. To organize and dissemination of message through translation and compilation;
