Maulana Tariq Jameel express his plans earlier to set up a fashion brand this year, in a hope to use money collected from the business for his Madrassahs, building schools and hospitals in the country. The intention results in a reality while he launched his flagship store in Karachi.
The Maulana was accompanied by his associates and the executives running the show. He cut the ribbon and offered a dua to kick off the launch of MTJ.
At the end of the launching ceremony speaking to media officials Maulana said, “the thought first came to me in 2000. I always wanted to run a madressah without using zakat money. But I couldn’t find enough resources for it. So, when the pandemic happened, the Almighty put this thought in my head to start a business and use that money to run the Islamic institutions”.
“That was my intention and a few of my friends collaborated with me. Hence, we launched a brand with my name.”
The store features a complete collection of eastern wear, ranging from formal to casual, from wedding attire to breezy lawn pret. The products are priced in the range of Rs2,000 to Rs5,000, competitive with the general market.
