MMERC, a branch of Assam based Markazul Ma’arif (NGO) was established in Delhi in 1994 later shifted to Mumbai in 2000. Basking in the glory of success MMERC enters in the thirteenth year of its novel concept in the academia- to teach English language with other modern subjects of the age to the fresh Ulama—the madrasa graduates. It introduced a two-year course, ‘Diploma in English Language and Literature’ (DELL) first time in the world to educate the Ulama in a completely new environment and equip them with subjects hitherto unknown to them such as English language, Computer & Internet, Comparative study of religions, History, basic of Geography, Mathematics, Political science and other general sciences.
MMERC renders educational services for free. It also provides the students with basic amenities of life like lodging, food and medicine etc. In addition to its own trained teaching faculties the institution hires the services of the accomplished visiting faculties for the above-mentioned subjects. The institution aims at helping the students to demonstrate their skilful articulation of thoughts and presentations about their religion—Islam and to boost their confidence to face the challenges of the modern world and ultimately serve the nation with respect.
MMERC conducts a highly competitive entrance test with set of objective type questionnaires- at the end of the academic year (by the month of Rjabul Murajjab) of Darul Uloom Deoband. For every batch only 20 students are entertained in MMERC out of the several hundreds who face the test. The test divides in two phases—oral and written covering five subjects as a whole—Arabic Language & Literature, Hadith, Fiqh, Tafseer and general knowledge followed by interview. Having the degree of Alimiat or Fazilat from any known madrasa of India one is entitled to sit in the combined entrance exams for DELL in MMERC, Mumbai and Markaz-e Islami, Ankleshwar, Gujarat to make it to the final list. Application form with prospectus can be found and submitted at Dept. of English and Dept. of Computer in Darul Uloom Deoband on or before 20 August and at MMERC, Mumbai and Markaz-e Islami, Gujarat on or before 18 August only.
