HISTORY

From its inception to date, the MAI Institute represents a new phase and the culmination of efforts of Maulana Dr. Waffie Mohammed – author and missionary – who has been active in the local and global Muslim community for over 4 decades. Growing out of a core Islamic Worker Training programme, the Markaz al Ihsaan began as part-time religious classes on the weekends at the Edoo’s Welding and Industrial Supplies Company training facility, where it quickly utilised full available capacity.

The MAI Institute moved to its current main campus at the Al Ihsaan Centre, located in the scenic Hermitage Village, La Romaine, and adjoining the Hermitage Mosque.Today, the MAI Institute has moved beyond its national borders, and has opened its first overseas branch in the Republic of Guyana, based at the Anna Catherina Islamic Complex. Classes are also conducted at the Cumuto Mosque, in the north-eastern part of the island of Trinidad.
