Assalamo Alaikum Warahmatullah,
With extreme pleasure and happiness I have learnt that a website has been opened which aims at recording memories relating to the Talimul Islam College in a collective form. Being one among the first batch of students joining the college in 1944, I have appreciated very much the idea and wish the organising committee every success in their venture to revive the memoirs connected with the college in one way or the other. It is a pity, however, that the college, from its very infancy, had to pass through odds and adversities. First, it was started at a time when the second word war was at the zenith of its horrors and holocaust and, on account of that, there prevailed dearth of every thing- of basic necessities of life, of money, of material and even of staff and students.

Then, hardly two years had elapsed, when it had to migrate to Lahore as a result of the partition of Indo-Pak subcontinent, leaving its beautiful building at the mercy of non.Muslim refugees settling in Qadian. There, at Lahore, the college was restarted as if from a scratch, first in a forsaken house of Dr. Khaim Singh in the Canal Park; then in the utterly ruined building of D. A. V College, Lahore. I , a student of the third year, still remember how each and every window was reconstructed to give the totally devastated building the shape of a house worthy to live. When, after the Jama'at had spent enormous wealth on it, repairing every inch of the building and establishing science laboratories etc., then orders came, all of a sudden, to vacate the building for another purpose.. T.I. College was then shifted to Rabwah in an altogether newly constructed building. In 1974 it was taken, nay confiscated by the then Government of Pakistan in the name of the so called "nationalisation". The college still exists but with little effort to restore it to its past glory. Fazal Elahi Anweri

It is a matter of great pleasure to know that finally, the "Association of the T. I. College Old Students" has been formed. Thanks to Professor Chaudhry Hameed Ahmad Sahib and other friends who worked strenuously to achieve this goal. The main purpose of this organization is to keep the luminous traditions and high values of this great institution alive. I joined T. I. College Rabwah as an F. Sc. student in 1966. Although by that time Hazrat Mirza Nasir Ahmad, Khalifa tul Masih III was not the Principal of the college anymore, nevertheless the high moral, ethical and educational standards that were achieved during his leadership were still there. Since the majority of the professors were Waqifin, they did their job with a missionary spirit that was apparent from the extremely good results that were achieved every year.  

One always felt a family like atmosphere in the college because the teachers were caring and generous, always ready to support the students whenever they required help. At that time Professor Qazi Mohammad Aslam Sahib was the principal. Some other names that I remember are Professor Chaudhri Mohammad Ali, Professor Naseer Ahmad Khan, Professor Sultan Mahmood Shahid, Professor Mian Ata ur Rehman, Professor Chaudhri Hameed Ullah, Professor Chaudhri Hameed Ahmad, Professor Abdur Rashid Ghani, Professor Mirza Khurshid Ahmad, Professor Basharat ur Rehman and Professor Masud Atif.
In 1970 the T. I. College, Rabwah was granted permission by the University of Punjab to offer M. Sc. degree in Physics which was a great step forward in the history of the college. It was the tireless and sincere efforts of the late Professor Naseer Ahmad Khan under the auspices of Hazrat Khalifa tul Massih III that made such an important thing to happen.
I obtained a B. Sc. degree from the T. I. College in 1970 and was interested in doing an M. Sc. in Physics. In those days, the University of Punjab Lahore and the Government College Lahore were popular places for doing a Masters Degree as they were well established institutions with good reputation. On the other hand, at the T. I. College, this facility was only one year old. However, due to the excellent experience I had during my four year stay, I decided to join M. Sc. Physics courses at T. I. College, Rabwah. This opened a new chapter in my life. Although over thirty years have passed since I finished my studies at T. I. College, I still cherish the sweet memories of those days. During my professional life I have had the chance to work at numerous very good universities and excellent research centers all over the world which helped me to improve my worldly knowledge tremendously. However, nowhere in the world I could find the high moral and ethical standards that I experienced at the T. I. College, Rabwah.
Professor Naseer Ahmad Khan who was the Head of the Physics Department, took personal care for the wellbeing of every student and did everything possible to provide the students with all the necessary means and facilities to achieve success. His aim was twofold. First to encourage the students to show excellent performance in M. Sc. exams and do better than students at other institutions and second to prepare them for higher education abroad after they finish the Masters. Until the college was taken over by the Government of Pakistan, the students from the T. I. College always showed excellent performance compared to the University of Punjab and the Government College Lahore. Most of those students later obtained higher education abroad and now have responsible positions in different European Countries and the United States. I would also like to acknowledge the support and generosity of the late Professors Mian Ata ur Rehman and Masud Atif who were very kind and helpful to all the students. Late Professor Dr. Abdus Salam also visited the college a number of times and in his speeches he always urged the audience to excel in different fields of science and technology. His advice and encouragement was instrumental in shaping the future of many of the students. Finally, I would like to mention that all the success that was achieved during those years was made possible due to the full support, guidance and prayers of Hazrat Khalifa tul Massih III. wassalam Naeem A. Tahir

My Dear Prof. Chaudhry Hamid Ahmad Sahib,
May Allah grant you a long life of health and peace of mind. It was a long standing desire that a platform should be provided, where the old students and teachers could somehow reunite together. This was not an easy task. Years passed by, but this desire remained unfulfilled. Thanks to your efforts, that dream has been realised. May Allah bless your efforts and enable you to carry this difficult task further forward. I hope all of us shall give you full support in this noble work. Formation of the T.I. College Old Students Association is a historic event, like the founding of the college itself in 1944. I have seen the website and found it extremely interesting and inspiring.

The college has produced several heroes in all walks of life, and the website provides a glimpse of the fact. I assure you my full support and hope many others like me will love to provide you the assistance you need. May Allah bless you for that. After having matriculated from T. I. High School, I joined T. I. College in 1970 and participated in most of the extra-curricular activities of the college. I was an active member of the Students Union and held several offices in the Union and Bazam-e-Urdu. I represented the college in many All Pakistan Inter-collegiate Debates and wron trophies for the college. I was also President of the College Economics society from 1974-75. I was a member of the college Rowing team that won the Punjab University Championship in 1974. In 1976 I migrated to Germany, where I am comfortably settled and am running my own business. Alhamdo Lillah.

It gives me a great pleasure to express my feelings about my Alma Mater and its respected teachers for whom I can not find words to extend my thanks. Who took me from crayon to perfume and taught me right from wrong. I sometimes hum the hindi song” Ko’ee lauta day mairay Beetay ho’wee din”. It took us years to cross the wall which separated Talim ul Islam High School and College. Though, we could get few glimpses from the Boarding House windows opened towards the College and always wished to be in the premises one day wearing a black “gown”. At last the day came when we were filling in the admission forms to join the first year of the college. It appeared as if all the 10th grades from from all over Pakistan had moved over to this new premises with some exceptions to obtain the best education and discipline.  

There was no “ First Year Fooling” like in most of the other colleges, but a warm welcome from seniors. Although the building itself wasn’t all that grandiose and spectacular but inside, we had the best teachers who in spite of all financial constrains did their utmost to maintain a standard which was a peculiarity of the college and a matter of pride for parents and students. This esteemed institution produced intellectuals who attained key posts and ranks in civil and judicial services of the country as well as in Armed forces of Pakistan.
Even in games like Basketball and Rowing College kept a name for years not only at college level but at University level also. 4 years went like a wind, and we were out of the premises again with tears in our eyes, For which we dreamed for years. But the slogan “ Ilm-o-Aml” remained with us and will be our integral part till our last breath. I owe a lot to this institution. I salute all the members of Talim-ul-Islam College. HATS OFF FOR Talim-ul-Islam College.
I wish all the best for the hardworking team behind this website.
Mahmood A. MIRZA ( Frankfurt, Germany)
