THE HISTORY OF OUR COLLEGE

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

“Seeking knowledge is obligatory on every Muslim, be it male or female”, said Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon Him). Despite this unambiguous directive, the Muslim women have lagged far behind in education. Sincere and sustained efforts are needed to raise the level of education of the Muslim women. As education is the chief instrument of empowerment, it was felt that the best way to bring higher education to Muslim girls in general and Muslim girls from Melapalayam in particular is to start a college of arts and science exclusively for-girls. Accordingly, “As-Sathiq Educational Society” was fcVmed and registered as a society on20.09.2002

It is the great act of generosity that Haji S.K. Syed Ahmed, Haji. V.K. Mohamed Ghouse, and Haji. S.K. Kutha Mohamed willingly donated 3.05 acres of land owned by them for the noble Purpose of establishing Annai Hajira Women’s College. It is our duty to thank the Tamilnadu Government for sanctioning Annai Hajira Women’s College with Minority status through the GO.Ms. No: 306 dated 02.06.2004.

As the College fulfilled the requirements, the Manonmaniam Sundaranar University granted affiliation to the following courses B.Sc, (Computer Science) B.Sc, (Mathematics) B.Com., in the year 2004 and B.Com. C.A. (Computer Application) and B.A. English in 2011. The institution is indebted to our esteemed university.

It is a golden day in the history of Melapalayam when the Honourable Minister Mr. N. Nainar Nagendran inaugurated the college on 26-06-2004. The new building was inaugurated on 03.07.2005. The occasion was graced by the presence of Hon’ble Minister JanabT.P.M. Mohideen Khan,

We are extremely grateful to our former Centra! Minister Thiru. R.Dhanushkodi Adithyan MA, B.L, M.P. for his gesture of sanctioning Rs. 25 lakh for the hostef building.
