“The university will produce scholars who will emerge as leaders of tomorrow and will counter the western influence and negative propaganda against Islam. “It has been named after Abdul Qadir Jilani, who had linked science and spirituality. We consider spirituality a super science; it needs research, which will be conducted here.
He further added that:
“Al-Qadir University will focus on science and technology and contemporary studies of religion with an emphasis on Sufism in order to revive Islamic research to educate our youth in meeting future challenges,”
