“To help individuals and families learn life skills and develop moral and spiritual values through education, worship and recreation”

Karimia Institute was founded in 1990 with the support of the local community in Nottingham by Dr Musharraf Hussain al-Azhari OBE.

Karimia Institute is a national charity working across the United Kingdom. We are an innovative and dynamic Muslim organisation. We have developed centres for worship, education, training and self-development in various locations around the UK. The scope and variety of our activities are focused on bringing about a personal, spiritual and moral awakening in the individual.

Our headquaters are located in Nottingham where we deliver services and a range of projects. We offer wide range of services from our centres. In addition to the daily prayers, we have advice and counselling; education for children and adults; services related to marriage and death and more.

Karimia Institute, its volunteers and staff are driven to serving others, especially those that are underprivileged and vulnerable in our society.

We work in partnership with many organisations including Nottingham City Council, the local Primary Care Trust, Interfaith Forum, Nottinghamshire Police, Nottingham Citizens and others to help contribute towards improvements in education, health provision, environment, and community cohesion.
