Jamia Binoria is an international Deobandi Islamic educational institute in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. It is regarded as one of the most modern madrassas.[citation needed] It should not be confused with the Jamia Uloom-ul-Islamia madrassa in Binori Town, Karachi.

Jamia Binoria was founded by Mufti Muhammed Naeem in Rajab 1398 A.H. or 1978 CE.[1] It is affiliated to Ittehad Tanzeematul Madaris-e-Deeniya (ITMD), a confederacy of five religious education boards.[2] At one time, Jamiah Binoria is said to have had the highest enrollment of foreign students in Pakistan. The international enrollment dropped following the September 11, 2001 attacks.[3] In 2005, it had around 3,000 male and 500 female students, including students from United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany and East Asia.[3]
