Ibrahim Khan Raja (deceased)
The Foundation of Madrasah Ibrahim was laid by Mr Ibrahim Khan Raja (Late), a British citizen originally from the village of Tatral, where he was born. In 1999 he envisaged the need to provide religious education to young children in Tatral and the surrounding villages. He started the project to establish a Madrasah in Tatral by building on his family land. Unfortunately in February 2007, before completing the project, Mr Raja passed away. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un(انا لله وانا اليه راجعون ). However Mr Raja’s death the family continued and completed the project. The Madrasah was officially opened in 2008, catering the need for the religious education and memorisation of Qur’an for boys aged 5 years old or over. Since opening, the Madrasah has produced 40 Hafidh-al-Qur’an many of whom now provide religious education to other children in the local villages. On 1 January 2012 Mr Raja’s family handed over the management of the Madrasah to Mr Fida Chaudhary, the Son in law of Mr Ibrahim Khan Raja.
