The Name "Dar-e-Arqam"

In the 3rd year of the Prophethood of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W), a few
followers not more than forty gathered in the first ever Islamic
Institution established by the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) in the house of
Hazrat Arqam bin Abi Al-Arqam Makhzoami (R.A), situated in the lap
of mountain “Safa” in Makkah. It was known as Dar-e-Arqam (House
of Arqam). The 2nd caliph of Islam, Hazrat Umar Farooq (R.A)
embraced Islam there. The name of Dar-e-Arqam has been selected
keeping in view the first ever Islamic Institution of Makkah. It shaped
up the character of the Muslims under the teachings of Islam and
eventually emerged the greatest nation in the world.
