BA History

The foundation for Bihar Anjuman was laid on 11th March 1999, with some people joining hands to help those who may be in need of financial help, or in need of job.

The driving motto was to urge the people to join hands together and pool their resources for maximizing the benefits to the Muslim society in general and to the Bihari and Jharkhandi society in particular.
Review Anjuman's objectives.


"If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich."
- John Fitzgerald Kennedy, from his Inaugural speech, January 20, 1961.

Existence of Yahoo Group

Its Yahoo! Group came into existence, on 14th June 2004, with an intention to take the movement beyond the borders of one country, to bring in its fold people who feel like belonging to the family of Muslim brothers and sisters from Bihar and Jharkhand, living anywhere in the world. The successful model of one place could thus be implemented anywhere on the globe where some of these family members lived.

In its current form, Bihar Anjuman is not an organization, but simply a network of individuals and organizations whose hearts beat for Bihar and fellow Muslims worldwide.

Why is this Group formed?

"Let there arise out of you A Group designed to carry out Allah's order in inviting people to what is good, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong. And it is they who are The Successful." (Qur'an, 3:104)Bismillah

Bihar Anjuman has been able to bring many active, kind, knowledgeable and resourceful people together, from all corners of the world, to interact and act jointly to educate, motivate, inspire and instill confidence; to remove disappointments, eradicate miseries, and help the needy. Subhanallah! The Objectives are just the abstract of ideas that float in the minds of many of us who desire to serve the community but don't find an appropriate channel to do so.

It's time to take note, and stand up, dear brothers and sisters!

Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned.

Although it is not possible to list all that the Bihar Anjuman has been able to do till date since its inception, a few of the efforts in serving the community are presented as Case Studies on this website, just to serve as example of what Anjuman has been doing.

Broad categories of major activities undertaken in the past:

  • Prepare and maintain a comprehensive directory showing complete names and addresses of all Biharis/ Jharkhandis living anywhere in the world. [Register now]. 
  • Anjuman does not maintain any funds, but only raises funds, on a temporary basis, solely from its own member community with a view to encourage genuine participation-by-all and nurture a culture of mutual help and respect in order to get rid of the charity mindset.
  • Offer aid and assistance to the people of Bihar/ Jharkhand badly affected by natural calamities and other disastrous incidents. An example can be seen by clicking here.
  • Establish close contacts with other organizations and extend full support in promoting welfare activities outside Bihar for Muslim brethren affected during calamities. An example can be seen by clicking here .
  • Provide financial support for (a) marriage of economically weak Muslim girls from Bihar, and (b) for technical education to economically weak Muslims of Bihar/ Jharkhand. For details, please click here .

  • Awarding scholarships to eligible, talented and economically challenged Muslim students of Bihar/Jharkhand pursuing technical education. For details click here.
  • Propagating Islamic values and participate actively in the reforms leading to betterment of the Islamic society, removing of misconception from our own minds and from those of others - propagate the concept that Muslims have to be MODERATES only, and extremism of any kind is not acceptable in Islam. This may be achieved through regular meetings where Islamic scholars provide guidance. It is propagated internationally through Quran Section of the website, Hadith-Seerah section, sharing views and documents which are published in the articles section of this website, or in the monthly e-magazine (BaKhabar), or in the Islamic Articles section, or in the Islamic videos section.
  • Organizing religious, literary, social and cultural get-togethers. In any city, whenever a scholar (supporter of moderation in Islam) is on visit, meetings are organized both at the level of Biharis and Jharkhandis and at the national level.
  • Helping community members in getting decent placement through daily job-postings. Click here for details
  • Maintaining a data-bank of prospective employers for the new entrants. List of recruitment agencies with their contact numbers are made available online. Click here to view .

The saddest places on earth are graveyards. Not because people are buried there, but because dreams, talents and purposes that never came to fruition are buried there. Graveyards are filled with books that were never written, songs that were never sung, words that were never spoken, things that were never done.

You have talents and gifts that no one else can offer. There are things you can do that no one else is capable of doing quite the way YOU can do them. Don't rob this earth of your purpose by taking it to your grave.

You see, we all have a purpose, a reason for living, breathing and existing. We all have unique talents and gifts that were created and given to us to be shared. Our task is to understand this and figure out what our purpose is.

You can become as small as your controlling desire, or as great as your dominant aspiration.
