Maulana Tariq Jameel (Urdu: مولانا طارق جمیل ; born 1 January 1953) (also spelled Jamil) is an Islamic scholar in Pakistan. His native town is Tulamba near Mian Channu in Punjab. His father was an agriculturist and was a respected person in his field and the local area. Tariq Jameel was born and raised in Mian Channu. 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 then his focus shifted towards Islam. After completing his Higher Secondary School Education (a.k.a. F.Sc in some regions of Pakistan) in Pre-Medical (Equivalent to A 'Levels') from Government College University, Lahore, he took admission in King Edward Medical University in Lahore. He intended to do his MBBS, but he soon switched 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.
