The visionary behind it was Hakeem Hafiz Abdul Majeed, one of the most renowned Unani practitioners of his time. A notable philanthropist, Hakeem Sahab's primary intention was to break away from old traditions and introduce a new way of practice.

True to its name and the originator’s intentions, Hamdard has always been fully committed to quality and compliance, meeting the highest quality standards. It began to thrive and grow, driven entirely by a commitment to quality and perfection.

Unfortunately, Hakeem Hafiz Abdul Majeed passed away in 1922 and could not witness his efforts take a multidimensional shape under the able leadership of his illustrious sons - Hakeem Abdul Hameed and Hakim Mohammed Said (who undertook the development of Hamdard Pakistan).

Old and traditional yet warm and friendly, energetic yet sensitive, Hamdard (India) is the reflection of the exemplary life of Hakeem Abdul Hameed. Through unending perseverance, imagination, innovation, and a strong will to adapt to the times, he brought the dynamism of a new age to the philosophy and operation of Hamdard. Their pool of medical experts with extreme calibre propelled the organization forward with ever-evolving innovations. As a result, not only did Hamdard become a premier pharmaceutical house but also represents our nation on a global medicinal platform.

Hakeem Abdul Hameed revived Unani at a time when it had stagnated beyond belief. Not restricting himself to his innumerable contributions to the field of Unani medicine, he is also credited with preparing a definitive edition of Ibn Sina’s ‘al-Qanum fi’l-tibb’ and translating it into English. This work advanced under his supervision for over four decades. For his contribution, he won accolades from all over the globe and was also the recipient of the Padma Shri & the Padma Bhushan.

The mantle was further passed down to his sons, Mr. Abdul Mueed and Mr. Hammad Ahmed. Mr. Abdul Mueed was appointed the First Chief Mutawalli and is credited with making Hamdard what it is today.

Hamdard Laboratories India (Medicine Division) is now managed by Hakeem Abdul Hameed’s oldest grandson, Mr. Abdul Majeed Sani, and it stands as one of India’s leading Health and Wellness companies, boasting a portfolio of over 600 natural and herb-based products. This organization holds a special place in Indian hearts.

Mr Abdul Mueed

The First Chief Mutawalli/Trustee of Hamdard

Mr. Abdul Mueed, the eldest son of Hakeem Abdul Hameed Saheb, joined Hamdard in 1964 and was appointed the Chief Mutawalli in 1974. After the sad demise of his father, Janab Hakeem Abdul Hameed Saheb, he took over as the Chairman of Hamdard National Foundation. He held this post until his demise on 19th March 2015.

His untiring efforts to modernize Hamdard Laboratories, in terms of standardization of Products & Packaging, and the establishment of modern facilities at Manesar and Ghaziabad, earned many feathers in his cap. The facilities were successfully audited by the US FDA, earned ISO 9001 and ISO 2200 certifications, and were approved by the Export Inspection Agency (EIA). He is credited for laying the foundation of professionalizing Hamdard Laboratories with the assistance of Ernst & Young during the period from 2009 to 2014. The success of this transformation bears testimony to the increase in the turnover of Hamdard Laboratories, which doubled during his tenure with a 150% increase in profits.

Beyond exceptional financial performance, Hamdard was able to establish the highest standards of corporate governance and digitization through information technology. Robust systems and procedures were put in place to achieve these objectives.

Due to his vision, Hamdard was able to establish HIMSR – the only private medical college in Delhi on the campus of Jamia Hamdard. This institute has emerged as one of the leading medical colleges in India, continuing the visions of the founders for creating institutions for educational excellence.

The HAHC hospital connected to the HIMSR medical college provides the best medical care at subsidized rates.

Here at Hamdard, we pay homage to his vision through our continued efforts to strive for excellence.
