Tariq Jameel (Urdu: مولانا طارق جمیل ‎; born 1 January 1953) (also spelled Jamil) is a Pakistani Islamic scholar from Tulamba near Mian Channu,Khanewal in Punjab.

Early life[edit]

Jameel's father was an agriculturist. It was only when he pursued his MBBS in Lahore that his focus shifted towards Islam. After completing his Higher Secondary School Education (also known as F.Sc in some regions of Pakistan) in Pre-Medical (equivalent to A 'Levels') from Government College University, Lahore, he took admission in King Edward Medical University in Lahore. He then received Islamic Education from Jamia Arabia, Raiwind (near Lahore, Pakistan)where he studied Quran, Hadith, Sharia, Tasawwuf, Logic And Fiqh.[citation needed]

Transition towards Islam[edit]

His interest in Islam grew during hostel life in Lahore and can mainly be attributed to group members of Tablighi Jamaat with whom he became friends during his college life.[citation needed]

He regularly delivers lectures and speeches encouraging people to follow Islamic values and principles and put them into practice in their everyday life.[citation needed] He emphasizes non-political, non-violent, non-sectarian Islam.[citation needed]

He has traveled extensively for this cause and delivered thousands of lectures all over the world. He mastered the ability to understand and speak Arabic and has traveled extensively to numerous Islamic countries.[citation needed]


Jameel has also been the main paradigm for Junaid Jamshed[1] since his turn towards Islam. Tariq Jameel is also a student of the late Muhammad Yusuf Ludhianvi and Jamshaid.[citation needed]
