Maulana Shah Mohammad Abdur Raheem Mujaddedi with his determined efforts and dedications succeeded in acquiring a vast area of land for the construction of Jamea of his dream and twenty second of Shawwal 1396 A.H. i.e. 13th October, 1976 was fixed for laying the foundation stone of main building of Jamea. On the same day a group of dedicated persons from all parts of the country assembled together for the scared cause at that fascinating place surrounded by hills.
