Maulana Tariq Jameel (Urdu: مولانا طارق جمیل ; born 1 January 1953) (also spelled Jamil) is an Islamic scholar in Pakistan. His native town is Tulamba near Mian Channu in Punjab. His father was an agriculturist. Tariq Jameel was born and raised in Mian Channu. In his childhood religion was not a major part of his life and his family in particular. It was not until he pursued his MBBS in Lahore then his focus shifted towards Islam. After completing his Higher Secondary School Education (a.k.a. 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 intended to do his MBBS, but in the last year he switched to Islamic Education as he realized the significance of a great cause. He then went on to receive Islamic Education from Jamia Arabia, Raiwind (near Lahore, Pakistan)where he studied Quran, Hadith, Sharia, Tasawwuf, Logic And Fiqh.
Transition towards Islam
His proclivities for Islam grew during hostel life in Lahore and can mainly be attributed to the group members of Tablighi Jamaat who he became friends with during his college life.
He regularly delivers lectures and speeches encouraging people to follow Islamic values and principles and put them into practice in their everyday life. He emphasizes non-political, non-violent, non-sectarian Islam.
He has traveled extensively for this cause and delivered thousands of lectures all over the world. To quench his thirst for knowledge, he mastered the ability to understand and fluently speak Arabic and traveled extensively to numerous Islamic countries. His charming appearance combined with a strong voice and a fine ability to deliver religious lectures soon catapulted him to fame and within a few years he became one of the most profound and inspiring preachers of Islam in the Urdu language.
Jameel has also been the main paradigm for Junaid Jamshed since his inspiring volte-face towards Islam. Tariq Jameel is also a student of the late Maulana Muhammad Yousuf Ludhianvi and Maulana Jamshaid.
