Welcome to the Islamic Research Institute Website.This Institute is Pakistan's premier research institute established on 10 March 1960 "to organise research on Islam, to give it a rational and scientific interpretation in the context of modern age and to bring out the achievements of Muslims in the fields of history, philosophy, science and culture" (Notification of Establishment 1960).
It is my pleasure to introduce the Institute, its history, objectives, organisational structure and its activities. This website is an attempt to outreach scholars, students and researchers interested in research on Islam.
