Department of Arabic

Arabic is taught in Maulana Azad College since its inception as Islamia College, December 9, 1926. At the outset Arabic, Persian and Urdu were under a single department. The eminent teacher Prof. Abdul Quadir was the first to teach Arabic in this department. During later period, Prof. Mahfuzul Haq, and Prof. Quneyet Hossain served as the departmental faculty. In the year 1966, the renowned Prof. Masood Hassan became the Head of the department. Prof. A.Z.M. Harun-al-Rashid was appointed as the head of the department in 1973 and he performed his duty till 1996. Prof. Samiullah Asad became the next head and held the post till 1998. After the retirement of Prof. Asad this department ran for almost eight years without any regular teacher. Only few part time teachers could manage the department under the headship of the Principal of the college. In 2006 two full time teachers Md. Maseehur Rahman and Syed Shah Marhoonul Irshad Alquaderi were appointed in the post of Lecturer. Md. Maseehur Rahman was made Head of the Department. In 2010 Md. Maseehur Rahman left the Department and Syed Shah Marhoonul Irshad Alquaderi became the Head. He ran the department with two Part Time teachers for four years, and finally three full time teachers were appointed in 2014- Syed Mustafa Murshed Jamal Shah Alquadri, Md. Sadrul Islam and Shafiqul Islam. Four full time teachers are serving the Department now.
