Aljamea-tus-Saifiyah is the principal educational institute of the Dawoodi Bohra community.

Its sole benefactor, His Holiness Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, oversees and guides it in all its endeavours. The academy has been functioning from its present campus in Surat, India for over two centuries with a sister campus inaugurated at Karachi, Pakistan in 1983. A third campus was established in Nairobi in 2011 with the official inauguration taking place in 2017. The latest campus in Mumbai was inaugurated by The Honourable Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi in 2023.

Aljamea-tus-Saifiyah provides young Dawoodi Bohra men and women with an education based on the principles of Fatimi philosophy.

This philosophy encompasses tenets that have proven themselves over the centuries along with the best of what contemporary disciplines have to offer. The eleven year programme covers higher secondary, undergraduate and graduate education. Although students specialise in select disciplines, the institute’s philosophy mandates that they acquire from and appreciate a wide spectrum of branches of knowledge. In this respect, students study a range of subjects within the empirical sciences, social sciences and the humanities, as well as select modern languages.

At Aljamea, education is more than academics per se; it is a quest for excellence in all aspects of personality, imbibing morality as well as intellectuality. 

The fruition of the academy’s undertaking involves constant application of what is learnt, thereby bridging theory and practice. Due to this philosophy, the academy is at once, ancient yet modern, focused yet holistic in its outlook. It is this applied philosophy that makes the academy unique.
