The Burah Jame Masjid, located in the capital city of Guwahati in Assam, has operated a hostel for financially challenged students for seven years. This initiative includes students from diverse backgrounds, including non-Muslim communities. The mosque, which is the oldest in Assam, is named after Burababa, a spiritual leader who came to the Ahom Kingdom during the Mughal invasion in 1615.
After his death, his grave was converted into a dargah. His legacy continues to live on through the Burah Jame Masjid and its mission to provide education to underprivileged students.
