Maulana Tariq Jameel, a well-known religious preacher, while explaining about the clothing brand started under his name, said that the brand has no business intention but its income was spent for the foundation. Maulana Tariq Jameel said that in the year 2000 It occurred to me that there should be an Arabic madrassa in which education should be given in Arabic, after which I founded a madrassa in Faisalabad called Madrasa Hasnain.
He said that later this madrassa was divided into ten branches where only our students are teaching and lessons in Arabic are being taught there, while the madrassa was being run with the help of friends.
“Last year, when the Corona epidemic broke out and businesses went out of business, I closed down co-operative madrassas and started online classes, but I was worried that people’s businesses would come to a standstill,” he said. If so, how will the arrangements of the madrassa work?

“I’m not doing business to make money, I haven’t made money all my life, we don’t have a business mind and we are landowners and I haven’t done business since I started preaching, just cotton once in 1984,” he said. The crop was planted.
“I don’t intend to do business with this brand, but I will invest it in the MTJ Foundation, through which we want to build schools and hospitals,” he said.
The well-known preacher said, “In the subcontinent, it is considered a defect for scholars to do business or trade. It is not known where this came from. The concept of Maulvi has been made of begging from the people.”
