In 1904 a devoted, determined, yet unworldly man, Hakeem Kabir Ahmad Sadiq Sahab — started his matab (clinic) in the sub lanes of Sambhal. With a simple tenet that no one has ever become poor by giving, Hakeem Kabir Sahab let his patients find compassion in him. Unfortunately he passed away and Hakeem Sageer Ahmed Sadiq Sahab walked on the footprints of his father- a very well-known practitioner, who was always committed in making quality healthcare an affordable and accessible reality throughout. Hakeem Rais Sahab took his legacy further and started his practice in 1941. He made a remarkable name in the field of Unani practise and earned many laurels against his name
The founder of Hakim Rais Unani Medical College and Hospital, Hakim Zafar Ahmad Sadiq, is one of the most renowned Unani Practitioner of his day. A famous philanthropist, the Hakim’s main intention was to break away from old tradition and bring in a new way of practice. He started practicing in 1982 and has more than 40 years of experience in the sphere of Unani and is one of the fore-runner in promoting Unani globally. Today, he has become a synonymous with integrity and high quality treatment in the field of relatively inexpensive unani medicines.
Leaving no stone unturned Hakeem Zafar Ahmad Sadiq Sahab further carried the mission and vision laid down by his father, it is the trust of the patients in him that in today’s date he cures and treat at least 400 patients daily.
His sons Hakeem Bukhrat Ahmad Sadiq and Hakeem Rushed Ahmad Sadiq with their extraordinary drive have made a little mark in no time. Both the brothers took responsibilities of curing and treating people which led them to start their respective matabs in Karnal and New Delhi.
Hakim Zafar sahab’s mission is to lessen the suffering and to provide health and educational services to all. Keeping this thought in mind Hakeem Zafar Sahab along with his sons Hakeem Bukhrat, Mr. Luqman and Hakeem Rushed with a great vision of spreading the Unani method of Medicine have established Hakeem Rais Unani Medical College and Hospital in 2010 in the name of Late Hakim Rais Ahmad Sadiq, an eminent Unani Physician of Sambhal (U.P.).
Hakim Zafar Ahmad Sadiq established Hakim Rais Unani Medical College and Hospital with the great vision of spreading the Unani method of Medicine and to produce competent Unani graduates of profound scholarship, having deep basis of Unani with modern scientific knowledge, in accordance with Unani fundamentals with extensive practical training so as to become Unani Physician and Surgeon and research worker fully competent to serve in the medical and health services of the country
