SUBJECT: TEACHING OF HOLY QURAN IN PAKISATNI UNIVERSITIES

social justice. In view of its importance and in line of the Senate Resolution No. 533 passed on the 16 of January
2023 (enclosed), all the Pakistani universities/Degree Awarding Institutes (DAIs) are advised to incorporate a
course on Holy Quran with translation, tajveed and tafseer for Muslim students as a mandatory degree award
requirement for all undergraduate degree programs with effect from Fall 2023 without making it part of the
