University of Peshawar Revives Seerat-un-Nabi Department After Seven-Year Hiatus, Offering Free Admissions

The University of Peshawar has breathed new life into its Seerat-un-Nabi (SAW) Studies Department after a seven-year hiatus. This department had been closed down in 2016 due to low enrollment numbers. The revival ceremony was presided over by Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor Haji Ghulam Ali, who was accompanied by prominent religious scholars and other dignitaries.

In a significant move, the governor not only oversaw the reopening but also announced free admissions for the department. Additionally, he reduced fees by 30 percent for programs related to Arabic and Islamic Studies. This decision aims to make Islamic education more accessible to students.

This development is not only a revival of an important academic department but also a significant gesture towards promoting the study of Islamic teachings. By offering free admissions and reducing fees, it encourages more students to explore and understand Seerat-un-Nabi and related subjects. The presence of respected religious scholars and government officials at the inauguration signifies the importance of this department in promoting religious education and values in Pakistan. The move has garnered attention as it combines academia, faith, and accessibility, fostering an environment for the comprehensive understanding of Islamic teachings.
