Maulana Tariq Jameel is a well known Islamic scholar from Pakistan. His native town is Tulambah near Mian Channu. His father belonged to the Muslim Rajputs community , was an agriculturist and was a respected person in his field and the local area.
Tariq Jameel was born and raised in Mian Channu and is the son of a feudal agriculturist also referred to as "Mian" 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 M.B.B.S. in Lahore that 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 College in Lahore. He intended to do his M.B.B.S., 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.
