There are three institutions,home,school and environment of society,which are responsible for building of character and personality.A child whatever he learns,either learns at home, schoolor form the environment surrounding the society if there is no religious atmostphere of religious education at home, the environment is un-islamic , the course being taught in schools consisting of wordly affairs only and there is no character building and no idea about the world to come then a child instead of become such a marching of earning wealth which revolves around desires.
In india the Shias were passing through such atmosphere for long years.At homes, the last destination in western system of education, was recitation of Quran only.The environment was fully supressed by un-islamic thinking and actions.The Schools and colleges were the centres of propagation of un-islamic and worldly teachings. The intellectuals of the community who considered polytheism as aim of life,were pleading for Marx and Haigal.
There were a few Arabic schools in the country but their number was too small.The ulema of future who obtained education in these madaris under troublesome and difficult conditions, had considerd their future as dark. They had limited their performances onlt up to conducting Nikah,funeral prayers, Nazar, Fateha etc. “Amir-Bil-Maroof ’’ and “Nahi-Anil-Munkar” which are obligatory and the creation of religious sence and feeling amongv the community, were considered to be over-stepping the limits. The numbers of such ulema was much less and momineen in bastis used to take the advantage of Tohfatul Awam. This state of affairs continued to remain in existence for long.Then there was an attack by a new calamity in the shape of divison of the country.Majority of ulema migrated from india. The business men and intellectuals thus become victims of confusion, fear and uncertainty.On the other hand religion was treated as crime. Keeping no connection with religion,was not only the necessity in politics but had become a fashion. Thereafter there was third misfortune in the shape of oblition of zamindar which made the community victim of poverty.This proved as the last nail in the coffin.
This was the time and turning point in the history when the Founder of the Tanzeemul Khateeb-e-Azam Late Moulana Seyd Gulam Askari (PBUH) come forward and unfurled the flag of religious movement. This was the reason that the Founder of the Tanzeem, had devoted his whole life with all his capacity and capability for preliminary religious education for children. In the beginning he started this work. alone and opened sixty schools in various bastits of momineen. As there was no proper management,the schools used to be closed down.Finally he decided to begin this work on all india basis in the shape of a movement. The makatib (school) all should be organised and the momineen who are scattered all over the country should be put together through such an institution which should be attached to a centre. This movement become a religious movement (Tahreek-e-Deendari). Finally he gave it the name of Tanzeemul Makatib. By the grace of Allah it has now spread not all over the country but its existence can be felt abroad.
