Chair man’s Message

Welcome to Al Irshad,

The first revelation of the holy Quran as given to Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) was “Read in the name of god”. It emphasizes the role of education in society. Vedas uses “Mrityoma amritangamaya” to mean the same in Sanskrit. Moreover, it is evident in a Hadith by prophet (ﷺ) that “the best of all in the world is a righteous woman”. Our arts and science college for women is an embodiment of all the aforesaid great thoughts. We make women who are able to transform the world. As a quality focused, value based and excellence oriented institution, Arts and Science College for Women is an initiative under Al Irshad Charitable Society that has all the potential to fuel in the women education at its best.

All the best for career aspirants,
