By the Grace of Allah and the benign guidance of His Holiness Dr. Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin Saheb (RA), BURHANI TRUST (A.P.) was established in the year 1983. The Trust has completed twenty three years of fruitful existence and, under the guidance of his successor Dr. Syedna Ale qadr Mufaddal Saifuddin Saheb (TUS), continues to march ahead towards its goal of supporting economic progress and educational development in the state of Andhra Pradesh.
Dr. Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin Saheb (RA), eversince he donned the mantle of leadership as the spiritual and temporal head of the Dawoodi Bohras in the year 1965 (Hijri 1385), combined spiritual and practical wisdom to steer a path of economic progress and social amity for millions of Dawoodi Bohras all over the world. During his tenure charitable activity, too, received a great impetus. Syedna’s concern for humanity at large, irrespective of religion, caste and creed has been expressed in word and deed, through his sermons and writings as well as through the establishment of Trusts. As such, the number of Trusts established by Syedna for various charitable causes and important concerns like the environment is unprecedented. One of the beacons of his foresight and vision, the Burhani Trust Andhra Pradesh, is one such example.
During his historic visit to the Twin cities in December 1993, in an address to dignitaries of the state and his followers at the airport, His Holiness Dr. Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin Saheb (RA) expressed his desire to contribute to the development and progress of the people of the state. On December 12, 1993 His Holiness formally established the Trust at a glittering function attended by dignitaries at Hotel Krishna Oberoi, Hyderabad.
