All praises be to Allah -Lord of the Worlds- prayer and peace be upon the Leader of the Prophets and Messengers -Muhammad Bin Abdullah- and his family, companions and upon those who follow them with sincerity until the Day of Judgement.
Assalamu ‘Alaykum Wa-rahmatullahi Wa-barakatuhu,
And very good day to all of you. May you be well throughout the year. I am pleased to welcome you all to our BIU website.
Islam is the comprehensive system of life. It offers legitimate rights to both man and woman to acquire knowledge from cradle to grave. Moreover, it is the obligation of a state to make arrangements for the education of every individual irrespective of gender, race, caste and creed. Alhamdulillah, our BIU is one of these arrangements.
Bangladesh Islami University (BIU) is a private university launched in 2005 in Dhaka. Since establishment, BIU has been facing so many challenges both internal and external. Nevertheless, BIU is one of the top renowned private universities in Bangladesh.
- BIU’s Vision: The University authority firmly aims at disseminating holistic and modern education through integrated learning and state-of-the-art training method. The authority strives to produce professionals with self-confidence, versatile skills and ethical standard to meet the challenges of the contemporary world and sow the seeds of economic, spiritual and cultural growth.
- BIU’s Mission: The mission of BIU is to impart education to interweave the two educational streams-religious and modern in the light of Islam. The Supreme Reality, Allah the Almighty, Who wants spiritual consciousness, gives freedom to human intellect and imagination. There are four sources of knowledge that are used in propounding the basic concepts of a human being and his or her relationship with Allah S.W.T. and the rest of the universes. These sources are; Revelation, Intelligence, Reason and Consciousness.
- BIU’s Goal: To inculcate the young men and women with the universal principles of Tawheed (the Oneness of Allah S.W.T.). To make practical steps for the moral, intellectual, economic, social, scientific and technological development in accordance with the principles of Islam and to take appropriate steps in finding out practical solutions to the problems of the new millennium. In-Shaa-Allah BIU’s authority is confident that they will be able to reach their goal.
I expect that the students, teachers and officials of BIU will try their best to fulfill the hopes and aspirations of our nation by creating skilled manpower and future leaders.
Let us pray to Almighty Allah S.W.T. for accepting all our ibaadah and efforts and grant us peace, prosperity, progress, and above all, the tawfique to continue to serve humanity with all the means. May Allah S.W.T. be our constant Guide and Protector at all times. Aameen.
Thank you all & Wassalam.
