  • On the religious plan, our mission is to transmit slamic knowledge on the right path to the school of AHL UL Bayt (AHS), and nurture the piety so we can empower children with spiritual autonomy .
  • On the culturel plan, our vision is to make our children active members and responsible citizens within our Khoja Shia Ithna Asheri community.

Aims and Objectives

To make our children the future citizens of our Jamaat, we strive to transmit our children the Gujarati as mother tongue and the values of our community (Equieta, Namrata, Sabieta). As the Madressah is in a close relation with Jamaat, every ceremony in Mehfile Zainab is an opportunity to educate and involve our children in its differents activities as much as possible.


Madressah was settled in 1989 at Mehfile Zaïnab, Nord Paris Jamaat, La Courneuve by one of his founder , Marhoum Goulamhoussen Naziraly, most known as “Moise bhay” in KSI Community worldwide.

The Madressah was runned during 6 years in a traditional way under the lead of Molana Seyed Imran Zaidi , origin from Lucknow.
However, activites of Madressah were very limited due the premises in rent.

In may 1994, jamaat has shifted toward actualy location were he has invested in a new property bulding for the future. During opening ceremony a new Madressah was born under its name of “Sanie Zehra Madressah” that means “to the image of Zahra ahs”. This new environment permited Madressah to perform a deep reformation of it system and organisation. It was running in a modern way , adopting the form of french secondary school (a teacher per topic and per hour etc..).

Thanks to the extension of Mehfile Zainab’s bulding during may of 2010, the current Madressah has reached a new step in his way of progress.
Sanie Zehra Madressah has his own area, and has strengthened its structure.
