“Jama’at-ud-Da’wah is a multi-purpose movement that aims to spread the true teachings of Islam, and to establish a pure and peaceful society by building the character of individuals according to those teachings.  It is necessary to improve not only the belief of an individual but also his or her deeds and actions, only then an individual can become a truly good citizen. The word “Islam” is derived from the word peace, therefore when an individual, society, government or state conforms itself to the teachings of Islam, they are automatically enriched with the blessing of peace and security.”  Professor Hafiz Muhammad Saeed.

Family Background

Hafiz Muhammad Saeed’s ancestors hail from Kashmir while his father was settled in Simla, India before migrating to Pakistan after the partition of the sub Continent in 1947. It was during this thorny journey of migration that Hafiz Muhammad Saeed was born on route to an independent Pakistan. This migration also resulted in numerous sacrifices on the part of Hafiz Saeed’s family as various members of his family lost their lives while migrating to Pakistan.

‘Saeed’ is his given name, while ‘Hafiz’ is a title bestowed upon him by his teachers because he had memorized the whole Quran by the youthful age of only twelve years. Hafiz Saeed comes from a family which has produced eminent and noted Islamic scholars throughout the ages, and he therefore received his early education from members of his own family and relatives.

Hafiz Saeed’s whole family is well-known for their devotion towards acquisition of knowledge. His father, Kamal-ud-Deen, was a scholar, while his uncle and father-in-law, the late Prof. Hafiz Abdullah Bahawalpuri, rahmatullah alaih (May Allah have mercy on him), was a renowned and distinguished Islamic scholar and has a very famous and respectable reputation among the masses and scholars alike. Hafiz Saeed’s mother too, was a well educated lady and thousands of women used to come and learn from her.

Similarly, Hafiz Saeed’s maternal grandfather, the late Maulana Noor Muhammad, rahmatullah alaih, was also a prominent Islamic scholar and several famous Islamic scholars of Pakistan were his students. All of Hafiz Saeed’s cousins and brothers are well-known scholars in their own right too and have been learning and teaching at various universities of America and Pakistan. In short, his whole family comes from a well-educated and scholastic background. Hafiz Saeed has two daughters and a son. His daughter too, is a graduate, while his son is a professor at a university, as well as studying further for PhD.

While he was there, he also enhanced his knowledge of Islam from various well-known Saudi scholars and became the favorite pupil of the most distinguished Islamic scholar of Saudi Arabia, Shaykh Abd-ul-Aziz ibn-e-Baz, rahmatullah alaih. Another source of enhancing  Islamic knowledge for Hafiz Muhammad Saeed were the wealth of books in several libraries of Saudi Arabia, where he was able to study a huge selection of books on Islam while being employed there.
