   Message from S. H. Hadi


      Hadayatullah Hadi

Only those nations survive on this planet those who are actively engaged in preserving their heritage, history and civilization. Hafiz Muhammad Siddiq has written a concise article “ Ta’limul Islam High School Rabwah ki wajh-e-Imtiaz” in an issue of Daily Alfazal, Rabwah, October 27, 2005. In my opinion this should be called an initiative, and that is it is our duty to preserve our heritage, it should be narrated so that it becomes a lighthouse for coming generations. In my opinion there is no country in the world where a former student of T.I. College is not serving his country. I am delighted to find out that Germany is the first country in the world, which has taken on the task of preserving the heritage of T.I. College, Rabwah. They are trying to memorialize the services of former teachers, students and its employees. I would like to congratulate them on this initiative. I would like to appeal to formers teachers, students and to put their memories into writing and send it to the webmaster of www.ticollegerabwah.com. If you are in possession of old pictures, articles, Testimonials, I.D. Cards, or anything related to T.I. College send it to them so that it can be displayed on the website. They are trying to preserve our heritage, it’s a noble cause. May Allah bless their efforts. I have a suggestion to make: On the above website there should be space allocated to teachers and students where they can introduce themselves, reminisce about old times, what they are doing now, their email addresses, telephone numbers, in order an online contact can be established. This in turn will become a chapter in the “ History of alumni of T.I. College”. Hidayatullah Hadi, Toronto, Canada hhsayyed@gmail.com

HASAN MUHAMMAD KHAN ARIF

I was born in the City of Jullundhur, a town in East Punjab (India) eighty five years ago. When I was born, my father had already accepted Ahmadiyyat. He was employed in an office of Government of India and after serving in that office for about 35 years, he retired as Deputy Assistant Financial Adviser to the Government of Pakistan. Since I was five years old I saw him and found him a saint in every respect. He died when I was fifty years old and throughout my life, it was not even once that my opinion about him as saint wavered. A profound Mu’min who acted upon every tenet of Islam very faithfully. A devoted preacher of Islam and Ahmadiyyat. Briefly, I can safely say that dozens of people joined Ahmadiyyat with his tabligh. Converting non Muslims to Islam, it was my personal experience that in British Indian days, he converted two Englishmen to Islam. One of them was Mr. Hutchins and the other’s name I do not remember. Till my primary education, I was extra intelligent student of the class. It was a terrible shock of my life that I lost my mother when I was nine years old. Her death was the death of my academic career. A student getting top grades, slid deep down to the bottom. But somehow I climbed up the academic hill till I reached my graduation classes. During that period I had not flunked even once. But the last ladder, that is, my graduation was a hill I could not scale and flunked. My parents refused to shoulder my educational expenses any more and I had no other choice but to seek some job. This, I got without difficulty and was employed in the Government of India. In 1943 Hadrat Musleh Mau’ood came to Delhi. There I made the final decision of my life and decided to dedicate my life for Islam. It was a deep plunge. My father was extra happy to hear about it. But in warning tone he told me that it was a thorny trail with difficulties mountain high. The life will suddenly change from prince to pauper. My remuneration will be peanuts as compared to that of my job in Government of India. But I had taken the plunge and my decision was final. So, I went with my father to have an audience with Hadrat Musleh Mau’ood. It was a grilling interview half of me and half of my father. Hudur knew my father for the last thirty years. The final decision was that he will accept me as Waqif-i-Zindigi if I could get my B.A. degree. For me it was an uphill task. But I had firmly decided and had to move mountains for achieving the B.A. degree. I worked very hard and graduated in 1945 and humbly informed Hadrat Musleh Mau’ood about it. I received reply which said that I should report as early as possible. In complying with the orders of the Markaz, I resigned my Government of India job, terminated my tennis club membership of which I was a star player and finished other small and big engagements. Hudur was pleased to appoint me as Naib Vakiluttijarat just to say a “Gazetted officer” right from the start. At this job, I served for two and a half years when the great upheaval of partition of India took place and the country was split into India and Pakistan. I took another decision of my life and opted to become a Dervish to live in Qadian for the rest of my life. My request was granted. But just after a few months I received immediate orders to reach Lahore without delay and resume my job as Naib Vakiluttijarat. Our office was still at Lahore and had not moved to Rabwah like other offices. This job continued till 1951 when I was transferred to the office of Vakiluttabshir and I reported at Rabwah. While in this office, the great Punjab Disturbances of 1953 took place and during police search of Tahrik-i-Jadid offices, I was arrested also for committing the crime of sending a Newsletter to our missionaries around the globe every month. After the imposition of Martial Law in Punjab, we were freed and our work of sending newsletters to the missionaries continued. A few weeks after, I was transferred as Settlement Officer of Rabwah land where I worked for two years and it was during my tenure that the whole land of Rabwah was transferred to their owners. It was strange for me and a great honour that I was the highest authority to issue title deeds of all the residential and commercial property of that sacred town. After half a century some people still come and show me that title deed with my signatures for which I am proud but I see that paper with moist eyes. Again I was transferred back in Vakiluttabshir’s office and just after that, Hadrat Sahibzada Mirza Mubarak Ahmad was transferred as Vakiluttabshir and it is my great honour that I worked with him with great success for nearly three decades. Many Naibs Vakiluttabshir came and went but Hasan Muhamad Khan was not moved even once any where else. Again it was my honour that holding my original office, I officiated temporarily nearly all the senior posts of Tahrik-i-Jadid, like Vakilud Diwan, Vakiluttaleem, Vakiluzzaraat, Vakilul Mal etc. At times I think that I am a very humble person and how could I perform these heavy and onerous duties. Then I consider that it was all due the mercy and kindness of my God Who is Almighty. In 1963, T.I. College Rabwah was granted permission to start post graduate classes in Arabic. At the forceful instigation of my very dear friend, Sahibzada Mirza Naeem Ahmad, the younger brother of Hadrat Sahibzada Mirza Waseem Ahmad, Amir Jama`at Ahmadiyya Qadian, we both joined the premier Arabic M.A. class and successfully got my post graduate degree in Arabic. As a student of that college, I am proud to say that our Principal was Hadrat Sahibzada Mirza Nasir Ahmad, who later became our Syedna Hadrat Khalifatul Masih III (peace be upon him). I still cherish the degree which I received at the hands of that great saint. I am proud to spend those two years under the cool shade of that soft spoken principal who had loaded me with favour after favour. But it is a long story. I retired in 1981 and migrated to Canada in that year. Right after my arrival, I was entrusted with the job of Editor of “Ahmadiyya Gazette” which after twenty four years still hold and it is my honour that now this magazine is the leading journal among Ahmadiyya magazines of the World. I take pleasure to say that much of its credit goes to our Amir, Maulana Naseem Mahdi.

   A brief history of the college

 

From Hamid Ahmad Chaudhry, President TICOSA

<> TICOSA>

 

      Hamid Ahmad Chaudhry

Our alma mater, the esteemed institution - Talim-ul-Islam College, where we have all studied, was founded by Hazrat Mirza Bashir-ud-Din Mahmood Ahmad, Khalifatul Masih II, in 1944 at Qadian to fulfil the wish of Hazrat Masih-e-Maood Alaih-e-Salam, who wanted that people should not only learn true Islam, but also learn the so-called secular branches of knowledge, particularly the material sciences.This was a time when the then Muslim Ulema in India had alomst unanimously declared that acquiring Western Education leads to atheism. It was at in these times that Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, founded the Ali Garh Muslim University, in spite of vehement opposition from the Muslim clerics. Financial resources of the small Ahmadiyya community at the start of the 20th century were extremely limited. So the dream of Hazrat Masih-e-Maood could not materialise then.
But as soon as the finances of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat improved, the College started in the beautiful building that belonged to T. I. High School, for which a new building was erected. Most of the professors and the Principal, Hazrat Sahibzada Mirza Nasir Ahmad himsself, were Waqifeen (Life devotees). Hardly three years had passed, when the college had its first major crises. The sub-continent was divided and the college had to vacate its building at Qadian. The the homeless college had to migrate to Pakistan. The determined leadership of its founder, Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II, ordered that the college must resume its function immediately, whereever a shelter was found. So the college found refuge in an abanded building near the Forman Christian College. It looked like an animal shed, without doors and windows. An arrangement was made with F.C.College, whose principal permitted the use of his science labs and in return our professors taught their classes, since most of their own staff had left for India. The College authorities remained looking for a more suitable building. Soon an ideal place was found. It was the building vacated by the D.A.V. college, near Government College and District Courts Lahore. It was a good location, but since the buidling had been used as a refugee camp for several month, it was in ruins. It was adequately repaired and college had once again a comfortalbe campus.

Thanks to the charismatic leadership of the Pincipal Hazrat Mirza Nasir Amad and the devotion of his colleagues, the teaching staff, T. I. College attained a position of respect among colleges affiliated with the University of the Punjab. Its achievements, both in the academic and athletic fields, were beyond expectation of a young institution with limited resources that had been rendered homeless within three years after its inception. But the college had to undergo still another test. The father of the college, Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II, directed that the college be shifted to Rabwah. The financail means of the Jamaat were extremely limited, but the determination of its leadership was not. If I remember correctly, Hazrat Mirza Nasir Ahmad, used to say that the Khalifatul Masih II, gave him Rs 50.000 for construction of the building and told him to ask for no more money. That meant the Principal had to use every penny sparingly. He decided to personally supervise the construction during the summer vacation. He used to stand in the scorching heat of summer, that threatened his health. He therefore purchased a sun umbrella. When the bill went for authorisation, the auditor objected that an umbrella could not be bought for the principal with the funds meant for construction. So stringent were the checks on spending the money of the Jamaat. Anyway, the college shifted to its new campus in Rabwah in 1954. Some of its staff could not shift to Rabwah and decided to remain in Lahore. Professsors Maqbool Elahi, Faiz-ur-Rehman Faizi, Abbas bin Abdul Qadir had were teaching in the Punjab University, beside being permanent members of the T.I. College staff. They decided not to come to Rabwah. Professors like Mohammad Yaqoob and Motasim Himayatull (both non Ahmadis) shifted with the college. But the college maintainted the tempo of its progress at Rabwah. Some photographs of the opening ceremony performed by Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II are given on the website elsewhere. In mid-fifties, old students of the college, started coming to the college to take up responsibilities of teaching. Professors Mubarak Ahmad Ansari and Masoord Ahmad Atif, followed by Kunwar Idrees, Sahibzada Mirza Khurshid Ahmad, Chaudhry Haeedhullah, Rafiq Ahmad Saqib, Saeed Ahmad Khan Rehmani, Chaudhry Hamid Ahmad, Abdur Rashid Ghani, Munawar Shamim Khalid, Abdul Shakoor Aslam, Saeedullah Khan, Mohammad Sultan Akbar, Nasir Ahmad Perwazi, Aslam Sabir, Aftab Ahmad, Aziz Ahmad, Ijazul Haq, Arshad Tirmazi, Rashid Javed, Anwar Hassan, Mobashar Ahmad Khan, Abdul Jalil Sadiq, and many others taught in the college.

Autobiography
The year 1946 is the year when I entered in the realm of knowledge, as a student of “Kachhi” (prep) class of Talimul Islam Primary School, Qadian. My class was a “Tat” (sitting on mats) class, venue was under the shade of a large mango tree, one in the tree-line that marked the boundaries between Talimul Islam High School and Talimul Islam College. I tapped door of world of knowledge with words “Alif, Ba, Ta, Sa”, which were forced into my memory by the painful strokes of “miswak” on my fingers by our master Muhammad Baskh Solanghi sahib (marhoom). After partition my family moved to our native village Chaksan, District Gujranwala in Pakistan, then to Ghakkhar Mandi, where I did my matriculation in 1956. When I was in 8th class I offered myself for “waqf-a-zindgi” (devotee), which was accepted by Hadhrat Khalifa tul Messih the II (rz) (Alhamdolliah). I was advised to get admission in Talimul Islam College, Rabwah, and after doing master I was to report in the Nazarat-a-Talim. In Talimul Islam College I studied as a F. Sc. Premedical student. Then I left Talimul Islam College, because I was interested in Biological subjects, not offered there at that time.

I did B. Sc from Islamia College, civil lines Lahore in 1961, M.Sc. Zoology from University of the Punjab, in 1963, standing first in order of merit, and was awarded Sir William Roberts Gold Medal, and Roll of Honor (Alhamdolliah). I was advised by Nazarat-a-Talim to report to the Principal Talimul Islam College, where I joined the staff as lecturer in Zoology, in September, 1963. My first research paper was published in 1965. The calm and serene environments in Talimul Islam College provided me the impetuous to carry on my research there. I still remember very vividly, the college biological laboratory, its spacious demonstration tables and high stools, where I worked after college time. Often I use to gaze at the nearby hilly rampart across the lab windows, how majestically it stood there! It provided strength to my determination. As I sit all alone, Shadi’s oft and on shouts making his presence announced to the trespassers, were my only companion. For several of my subsequent published papers I owe support and determination to the tables and that hills, that still stand there! I completed my doctoral experimental work in the same laboratory, on the same tables, sitting at the same high stools in the Biological Laboratory, where I fist got instructions as an F. Sc. Student back in 1956. I received my Ph.D. degree from University of the Punjab, Lahore, in 1991. I taught subjects of Biology and Zoology to F.Sc and B. Sc classes from 1963-1999, retiring in September of that year. During my F.Sc I stayed in Fazal-a-Omar hostel. In college my English teachers were Ch Abul Latif (marhoom), M. H. Zaidi and Kanwar Indrees sahib; Biology: Dr Naseer A. Bashir (marhoom); Physcis: Masood Ahmed Atif (marhoom); Chemistry: Prof. Mubark Ahmed Sahib Ansari; Deeniat: Milk Muhammad Abdullah (marhoom). Later Atif sahib, Ansari sahib and Malik sahib were my colleagues. My research interest has been Herpetology (study of amphibians and reptiles). Very little was known about Pakistani species of these animals. I toured different remote parts of the country, studying these animals in their natural environments and collecting them for my research. Several M.Sc students from Qaid-a-Azam University, Islamabad; Government College, Lahore; Punjab University and Government college, Lahore and Faisalabad completed their research paper under my supervision. At the time of immigration to U. S. A. I donated my large collection of specimens to Zoological Museum Government College, Lahore; and collection scientific books to Khalafat Library, Rabwah. Alhamdolliah, I am still working on my data that I brought from Pakistan, and getting it published in different international scientific journals. I have gotten published over 300 research papers, have described several new species and discovering new records for Pakistan. I have published two books in Urdu, two in English, one in German (published in Germany and USA). I was recognized as “Zoologist of the year 2002” and awarded a certificate and a shield by the Zoological Society of Pakistan. When I look at myself, I am still a child, and remember and feel the pain I felt by the “miswak” strokes by my teacher of “Kachhi” class, who knows how sincerely that pious man was praying for his pupils at that time? May his soul rests in peace in heaven, Amen!
