Hazrat Maulana Tariq Jameel (born 1953) is a well known Islamic scholar and speaker of the Hanafi school of thought from Pakistan. His native town is Tulambah near Mian Channu. Tariq Jameel was born and raised in Mian Channu and is the son of a feudal agriculturist also referred to as "Mian" (Lord) in Pakistan. In his childhood he lived a relatively modest life but religion was not a major part of his life and his family in particular. It wasn't until he pursued his MBBS in Lahore that his focus shifted towards Islam. After completing his F.Sc in pre-medical (equivalent to A 'levels') from Government College University Lahore, he took admission in King Edward Medical College in Lahore. He intended to do his MBBS, but his leanings towards spirituality soon urged him to switch to Islamic education. He then went on to receive Islamic education from Jamia Arabia, Raiwind (near Lahore), Pakistan where he studied Quran, Hadith, Sharia, Tasawwuf, logic and Fiqh.
