Dars-e Nizamiyyah

Dars-i Nizami (Urdu: درسِ نظامی‎) is a study curriculum used in traditional Islamic institutions, particularly those in the especially in the Indian subcontinent. It was standardized (and named after) Mullah Nizamuddin Sehalvi (died 1748) at Firangi Mahal, a famous seminary belonging to a family of Islamic scholars (ulema) in Lucknow, India.

The Dars-i-Nizami system originated in early 18th century India.[1] There is some controversy regarding the "reform" of the Dars-i-Nizami system, with some calling it "an 'anti-Islamic' conspiracy, alleging that these are a means to secularise madrasas and rob them of their Islamic identity"—though reformers generally contest that they do not want secularization and that they are not a conspiracy.[1]
