Wazir Mansion or official Quaid-i-Azam Birthplace Museum is a former family home in the Kharadar district of Karachi,Sindh, Pakistan which is considered the birthplace of the country's founder, Muhammad Ali Jinnah.


Wazir Mansion may be the birthplace of Quaid-e-Azam, Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan. Once, it was misunderstood to be Jhirk, which was later revealed to be untrue. The reality was disclosed in the book My Brother written in the 1960s by Muhammed Ali Jinnah's sister, Fatima Jinnah in his biography wherein she described the salient features of her brother's life. She mentioned their ancestral village, Paneli, in the state of Gondal, Kathiawar, in the province of Gujarat, in present-day India. Their father, Mr. Jinnah Poonja, had settled in Karachi because of a business partnership with an English Merchant company named Grams Trading Company, whose office was then located in Karachi. Jinnah's ancestral family and their progenies including M. A. Jinnah's daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren have been residents, to this day, of the province of Gujrat and Bombay. Muhammed Ali Jinnah's father got the house for rent in 1874 and settled here for some time. By 1900, he again returned to his native state.


The house now serves as a museum and national archive.


The house has been declared a protected national monument by the Government of Pakistan.
