Darul Hadis Latifiah (formerly Madrasah-e-Darul Qirat Majidiah) is an Islamic school based in Bethnal Green, London.


Madrasah-e-Darul Qirat Majidiah was established in 1978 by parents and community leaders under the guidance of Abdul Latif Chowdhury (Fultali Saheb). Classes were originally held at a rented property in New Road, London, E1. Through private donations local community leaders raised funds to buy the property. Since 1981, the present building at 1 Cornwall Avenue, London, E2 0HW (previously 46-48 Cannon Street Road, London, E1 0BH) were purchased.

The madrasa delivered Bengali and Qur'anic classes, on average to students; in excess of 200 and aged between 5 and 16. The classes were weekdays from 5 pm to 7 pm, and weekends from 10 am to 1 pm.[1]

Present day[edit]

In 1998, the institution was renamed Darul Hadis Latifiah, and established as a secondary school and college, where students receive a full secondary education in line with the National Curriculum as well as being educated in Islamic Studies, Bengali and Urdu.[1]
