Dr. farhat hashmi taught is the international Islamic university Islamabad for some time and she also continued her dawah work side by side. The best thing about her dawah work was that she used to attract the females of elite class who are particularly know for their distance from islam. She was invited to diliver daras for the ladies in Islamabad and she also gave lectures to the Saudi royal family females.

Her aim was to promot the message of islam to the common muslim females who otherwise remain ignorant of their religion and also from their religious duties. For this, she established an internation institution called “alhuda international” which became an easy source of access to the females of Pakistan who otherwise could not trust any other institution for that matter.

Dr. hashmi is now the  head of the alhuda international and also has her website drfarhathashmi.com and a website  for kids.

Unlike the modern day well learned scholars, dr. hashmi chose to remain the dawahtist of the fundamentals of islam. She does not promote the modernism like the people do today, instead she promotes the islam which people, especially ladies must follow.
