Talim-ul-Islam College (also referred to as T.I. College) is a government college located in Rabwah, Pakistan. Originally founded in 1898 in Qadian, India by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the college was the inspiration of the community's founder Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. Originally starting out as a middle school, the institution traces its roots to two rooms in a guest house located in Qadian. It was established to provide an Islamic-based curriculum in a town that had a small number of schools where most teachers taught with a bias against Islam. Inaugurated on January 1, 1898 as Madrassa Talim-ul-Islam, the school quickly became a high school within a three-year period. With a call from the community's founder, several of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad's followers sacrificed positions in established institutions to dedicate their teaching skills to the recently established facility. This attracted students from various backgrounds including both Muslims and Hindu from all over India without charging tuition. In 1903, the school transitioned to a college, renamed to Talim-ul-Islam College. It operated as such for only two years when it was forced closed due new regulatory criteria requiring that each college have adequate financial resources, qualified permanent faculty, and established facilities. This resulted in the school's closure until 1944 when the community was able to meet the requirements. The completion of the school year in 1947 proved to be the last year Talim-ul-Islam College remained open Qadian. On August 14, 1947, partition created two sovereign states of India and Pakistan. As a result, the majority of faculty and students made the migration to Pakistan, resulting in the permanent closure of the facility in Qadian. After a short time in Lahore, Talim-ul-Islam College permanently established its location in Rabwah, Pakistan.
