History & Governance

It was on 2nd February 1976 that the Jamia Darussalam Al Islamiyya was established. It was a time that, those who wanted to get a religious degree had to go outside Kerala, because there weren’t adequate upper institutions for higher studies. Most of the students were compelled to stop their higher studies in half way. Hence, the establishment of Darussalam marked itself as a mile stone in the history of Islam in Kerala. It was under the leadership of Nandiyil Muhammed Musliyar, an eminent scholar. And by the remarkable great services of Shamsul Ulama EK Aboobacker Musliyar, who led Kerala Islamic community for more than half a century, it has been broadly accepted by Islamic societies around the globe.
Darussalam Arabic college committee was constituted to run and supervise a number of Islamic and Academic educational institutions. Jamia Darussalam Al-Islamiyya is the headquarters of the committee. It situate at Nandi nearby Koyilandi in Kozhikode district of Kerala state. It has won a key status in global Islamic society and became a top graded non-governmental educational and cultural centre in the world.
