Jaffar e Tayyar Library, which is a subsidiary of Anwar Al-Quran Academy, was established on 13 Rajab 1437 Hijri with about 800 books in a small room located in the sub-section of the main mosque under the patronage of Maulana Dr. Syed Naseem Haider Zaidi.
Considering the burden relief and other difficulties with books at home, it was decided on the suggestion of Maulana Dr. Syed Naseem Haider Zaidi to build a study hall on the upper floor of the mosque to provide a better and calm environment for students to study.
Therefore, after a year, on the happy occasion of Mola Imam Ali’s (AS) birthday, 13 Rajab 1438 Hijri, to implement this decision, a spacious hall equipped with the best facilities for the study was inaugurated on the upper floor of the main mosque.
The administration of Jaffar e Tayyar Library realized in a short time that the study hall is proving inadequate and also due to the lack of facilities for women students in the mosque, they find it difficult to use the study hall, so again Jaffar e Tayyar Library On 13th Rajab 1439 it was moved to a relatively better and larger location on the main road where the library’s opening hours were 9-14 for female students and 16-23 for male students respectively.
On the auspicious day of 10 Rajab 1442 Hijri, Jaffar e Tayyar Library moved to its new building. Jaffar e Tayyar Library’s new building is equipped with modern facilities and is also a fine example of architecture.
