I know of Darul Ulum and Deoband since my days at Aligarh Muslim University in early sixties.  I have followed the history of this great institution in my studies about Islam in India.  May you (DIIT) continue to prosper and serve the Muslim community all over the world.

Congratulations on the foundation of your new institute. I have read with pleasure the pages of the website. I would be grateful if you could convey my regards to Maulana Salim Qasmi Sb whom I met many, many decades ago when I came to Deoband in the course of my research.

I believe that you are sincerely working for the cause of Islam and the Muslim Ummah. I congratulate you for establishing Imam Muhammad Qasim al-Nanawtawi Institute of Islamic Thought; my father was a graduate of Darul Uloom Deoband and I wish that the noble Islamic literature of great Deobandi Ulama should be produced in front of the academic community of the entire world.
