Department of Arabic

The first Academic session of Islamia College started on December 28, 1926. Department of Arabic exists since the inception of the college. At the outset Arabic and Persian were taught under a single department. The eminent scholar Prof. Abdul Quadir was the first to teach Arabic and Persian in this department. In the year 1966, the renowned Prof. Masood Hassan became the Head of the department. After bifurcation Prof. A.Z.M. Harun-al-Rashid was the first head of the department of Arabic. During later periods Prof. Samiullah Asad and Prof. Maseehur Rahman served the department as it's head. In 2010 A.D. Dr. Syed Shah Marhoonul Irshad Alquaderi became the Head. He is running the department with two full Time teachers Dr. Syed Mustafa Murshed Jamal Shah Alquaderi and Dr. Md. Sadrul Islam.

We believe in imparting value based education and we foster literary sensibilities and the creative imaginations. We encourage and guide our students to develop proficiency of Arabic language and literature. The faculty members show their concern and care for those mainly who belong to minorities section and marginalized in society. Our vision is to enable them to come back into mainstream society. Most of the distinguished professors and lecturers of Calcutta University, different Colleges, Schools, Madrasahs are former students of this department.

Luminaries like Dr. Syed Manal Shah Alquadri, former Ambassador of India to Uzbekistan, Eminent scholar Dr. Md. Sahidullah, former Principal Madrasha-i-Aliah recipient of Presidential Award for his literary works, Dr. Md. Badiur Rahman, former Head, Department of Arabic and Persian CU were the students of this department.

The academic environment of the Department helps a good number of pass out students to take admission in the Central Universities like Jawaher Lal Nahru University, Aligarh Muslim University, Delhi University, Jamia Millia Islamia University etc. for studying in Master degree each year.
