Brief History of School

The Hamdard Dawakhana was founded by late Hakeem Abdul Majeed Saheb as far back as 1906. The credit for developing the Hamdard Dawakhana according to his dreams and even beyond goes to his illustrious son, Late Janab Hakeem Abdul Hameed. Impelled by a Seer's vision and assisted by a determination that recognises no hurdles, he utilized the nucleus he had inherited, for modernizing the Unani system of medicine and pharmacy.He used his influence to presuade the authorities to open up a country-wide network of colleges imparting education in the Unani System.

Hamdard Dawakhana Wakf that had grown phenomenally over the years attained in due course a position to support education and research activities. Hamdard National Foundation was established towards this end. It became the channel of developmental assistance by Hamdard Dawakhana Wakf to a number of institutions created for educational research purposes; the most important of these were the Jamia Hamdard and the Hamdard Education Society(HES). Under the aegis of the latter was opened the residential Hamdard Public School. It has a full Infrastructure and all necessary facilities designed to provide quality education in a congenial environment.

Our Founder

Our Revered Founder Janab Hakeem Abdul Hameed Saheb, a true Gandhian in spirit and simplicity was born in Delhi on September 14th 1908. No account of Janab. Hakeem Saheb can be complete without the mention of his illustrious father, Janab Hakeem Hafiz Abdul Majeed and his mother Rabia Begum. Janab Hakeem Hafiz Abdul Majeed received and improved the ancient system of Unani medicine and therapeutics.

Janab Hakeem Abdul Majeed wanted a large number of people to benefit from its efficacy and therefore gave the name "Hamdard" to his fledging venture.

The Unani system introduced by the father was rejuvenated all over the world by the illustrious son Janab Hakeem Abdul Hameed Saheb, and true to the name "HAMDARD" Janab Hakeem Abdul Hameed Saheb, grew up to be an epitome of sympathy. Janab Hakim Sahib lost his father when he was just fourteen, but he proved to the world that he had nerves of steel and muscles of iron and thus carried out the task of his father.

His mother was indeed a source of perennial strength to her children.

Janab Hakim Sahib had his early education in Madarsa Rehmani and in 1915 was admitted in a school. He obtained knowledge of English from an English teacher of the Anglo Arabic School named Aziz Ullah Begh and Persian from Maulvi Naseeruddin. In 1925 he was admitted in Tibia College from where he completed his education. Simplicity was the hallmark of his personality. He was a man of great poise who took every adversity in its stride, bearing a smiling face. He led an austere and disciplined life. All through he woke up before dawn, prayed and went for long walks. He ate simple food and led a simple life, sleeping on a plain cot. Even as India`s one of the fifty rich men, he continued with the same life style. He imbibed Islamic values in his life completely and was a model par excellence of Islamic code of conduct.He dedicated himself to the cause of Education, which alone, he thought, was the way to betterment of society. He founded many institutions including Hamdard Dawakhana, Hamdard National Foundation, Majeedia Hospital, Hamdard University, Hamdard Education Society, Hamdard Public School, Rabea Girls Public School and Ghalib Academy.
