Jamia Tawakkulia Renga Madrasah is located in Mogla Bazar,[2] about 13 km south of district Sylhet, Bangladesh. It is one of the largest Islamic institutions in Bangladesh and the biggest in Greater Sylhet district.[3] It was founded in 1919 by maulana Arkan Ali; later ran by his son khalifa Madani Allamah Badrul Alam (Sheikh-e-Renga), a graduate of Darul Uloom Deoband and disciple of Husain Ahmed Madani. The present principal is hazrat maulana Shamsul Islam Khalil, an alumnus of Darul Uloom Karachi and the vice-principal is hazrat maulana Muhiul Islam Burhan.

The Jamia provides primary, secondary, as well as higher Islamic education and has been serving the needs of people both locally and nationally.[4][5][6] Currently more than 1900 students are enrolled in Nazara, Hifz and Alim classes. Furthermore, in academic year 2008–2009 the Jamia has produced 100 Ulamas and 50 Huffaz.
