Dars-e-Nizami is a curriculum used in traditional Islamic institutions known as Dar-ul-Ulums, which, although originated as an Indian sub continental phenomenon, can now be found in parts of South Africa, Canada, United States, the Caribbean and the United Kingdom.
Mulla Nizam Uddin al-Sihalwi (may Allah have mercy on him) from the Faranghi Mahall family founded the acclaimed Dars-e-Nizami syllabus. The family traces their lineage back to Abu Ayub Al-Ansari (may Allah be pleased with him), the companion of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him)

The authors of these texts, amongst others, Mir Sayyid Sharif, Imam Al-Taftazani, Ibn Hajib, Imam al-Quduri, etc (may Allah have mercy on them) were masters of these sciences in their times.
