Jamiah Arabia Ahsan-Ul-Uloom is an international Sunni[1] Islamic educational institute located in Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. It is regarded as one of the most established Islamic institutes[2] in Pakistan and has a huge following among both Islamic scholars and public. It mainly focuses on teaching Classical Arabic, Islamic theology and Hanafi jurisprudence fiqh by preparing scholars and experts in those fields through intensive Islamic law courses. It is known for following a strict code of refraining from innovations deemed unacceptable in Islam.

Jamiah Ahsan-ul-Uloom was founded by Maulana Mufti Zar Wali Khan in 1398 A.H. (corresponding to 1978 CE). It is affiliated to Ittehad Tanzeematul Madaris-e-Deeniya (ITMD), a confederacy of five religious education boards.[3] At 3 December 2012 its teacher of Daura hadith class Maulana Ismail was martyred by un known persons at abul hasan asfani road.
