UMT Grand Mosque

Founder's Message

UMT Mosque is not just another mosque in any locality. It is central feature of UMT design, architectural as well cultural, academic as well as community life.

Dr. Hasan Sohaib Murad

Founder, ILM Trust and UMT

UMT is perhaps the only modern university in the world built in the direction of the Qibla, yet relating to its surrounding in a harmonious manner. All UMT buildings are set in the direction of the Qibla. All classrooms and offices are set in the direction of the Qibla. The position of IMAM dominates the over all layout. This signifiesthe status of IMAM as not merely confined to leading prayers but as a source of inspiration and reverence for the community devoted to learning for life and leadership. The great symbiotic linkage is more clearly evident in the common root of the arabic word for university which is jamia and for mosque which is jamea.

Islam is a religion of knowledge based faith, truth driven life. Knowledge and character are intertwined in Islamic culture. The position of Mosque in UMT design further reinforces this key relationship.
