Apart from Maulana Tariq Jameel and Senator Faisal Vawda, the event was also attended by other celebrities from various fields. Many eminent personalities of Pakistan were also there to pay their wishes.

On the occasion, Senator Faisal Vawda conveyed Prime Minister Imran Khan’s good wishes to Maulana Tariq Jameel.
In a video message shared on his official page on Facebook last month, Maulana started the clip with a background of the scenario. He mentioned that he established Madrasa tul Hasnain, a seminary for students to get whole education in the Arabic language in the year 2000.
Now expanded to 10 branches, it was not effortless to manage financially.
He mentioned that some of the prosperous friends took the responsibility to run these religious schools. In the year 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic caused huge losses to the business and it turned worse for Madrasa tul Hasnain branches as the administration have to shut down the operations due to lack of finances.
Tariq Jameel then expressed his long-time desire to run all these seminaries to run without aid and he thanked some of his close friends who contributed to the noble cause and helped him started the MTJ brand. He also wished to enhance the project and form a hospital with it.
Clarifying about the gossips, he mentioned that he never desired to make any profit out of this business. The whole idea was to support the seminaries in the financial crisis.
He also opposes the dilemma in the subcontinent as people criticize religious personalities for doing business although it Sunnah. The fashion brand is meant to break stereotypes and sell clothing defined by Islamic scholar’s principles.
Even though Maulana Tariq is a great influencer but he faces backlash from people for spending a huge amount of money. People were disturbed over Maulan’s saying and doings.
I will definitely judge a religious cleric who give sermons by referencing Quran “O my people! Only this, the life (of) the world, (is) enjoyment, and indeed, the Hereafter – it (is the) home, (of) settlement” & then launch their brands by spending millions on the launch 🤷🏾♀️

#MTJ brand launch in Karachi, no SOPs being followed, no masks.
Sad to see a person who preaches Islam showing utter disregard for the essence of real Islam.

No doubt, many are supporting Maulana and calling this event a part of the business which he wants to do for a great cause. But surely, there is more to talk about except a business inauguration event.
I dont understand the jabs at MTJ launch. If you want a premium brand, that is exactly how to launch it. He wants to support his madressahs through his brand and that is a much more sustainable way than donations. We can disagree with his ideas, but this makes sense to me.

Atleast he has done all this launch my his own money. Not a foreign funded campaign. Judge all you can but the fact remains MTJ is an honourable person. May Allah give him strength to expose people like you.

Throwback of Maulana’s Life
Furthermore, Maulana Tariq Jamil was born on 1 October 1953 in Mian Channu, Pakistan. He completed primary education from Central Model School, Lahore. Jamil is an alumnus of Government College University.
He received his Islamic education from Jamia Arabia, Raiwind, where he studied Qur’an, Hadith, Sufism, logic, and Islamic jurisprudence. In 2019, the religious scholar stood 40th on a list ranking the world’s most “influential” Muslims.
Of course, the pure purpose of Maulana’s business is for charity but did this event have to be so extravagant?
