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 formed and registered as a society on 20.09.2002.
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 Tamil Nadu 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 in the year 2004 – 2005.
‘Little drops of water make the Mighty Ocean’ goes the saying, we are indebted to many a Philanthropists who have contributed generously for the welfare, growth and construction of this College. 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 and the new building on 03.07.2005. The occasion was graced by the presence of Hon’ble Minister Janab T.P.M. Mohideen Khan. We are extremely grateful to our former Central Minister Thiru. R.Dhanushkodi Adithyan M.A, B.L, M.P. for his kind gesture of sanctioning Rs. 25 lakhs for the Hostel building.
