Jamia Darul Uloom Karachi (Urdu: جامعہ دارالعلوم کراچی‎, Jāmi‘ah-yi Dāru’l-‘Ulūm-i Karāchī; Arabic: جامعة دار العلوم كراتشي‎, Jāmi‘ah Dār al-‘Ulūm Karātshī) is an Islamic seminary in Karachi, Pakistan. It continues the tradition of the Darul uloom system initiated by Darul Uloom Deoband (the largest Sunni Hanafi Fiqh following Madarsa).

The secondary schools have individual faculties for both boys and girls. The school has the highest standards of Islamic education and offers a combined curriculum covering traditional Islamic studies and contemporary academic subjects.


The seminary was started by the late Mufti Muhammad Shafi and Maulana Noor Ahmad in 1951.[citation needed] He was previously associated with Darul Uloom Deoband, where he served as the Grand Mufti, but moved to Pakistan following independence in 1947. The president of Darul Uloom Karachi is the Grand Mufti of Pakistan, Muhammad Rafi Usmani; the Vice President is Muhammad Taqi Usmani. Both are the children of the founder. It's near OGO water technologies.


The Jamiah has the following departments:
