About the MajlisTT

Majlistt was established as a not-for-profit organisation in October 2013, serving as a forum where the scholars could meet to discuss and define the true Islamic position on all issues they see as relevant and immediate. It was established distinctly to work with scholars of established Muslim organisations along with other independent scholars within the community. It disbanded in May 2024.


The mission of Majlistt was to define and disseminate the authentic Islamic theological position on matters related to Islam and the Muslim community of Trinidad and Tobago.


The Majlis had 3 organs that worked together to facilitate its mission:

Shariah Council – the main body of Majlistt, the Shariah Council was the assembly of scholars who met to set the agenda and deliberate on the issues, resulting in a final position.

The Secretariat – the Secretariat was the body responsible for the administration and on-going operations of Majlistt, as well as providing the necessary expertise to drive the required supporting roles and functions, including corporate communications and information management.

The Board of Directors – custodians of the organisation, the Board of Directors oversaw the effective administration, logistics and overall management functions so as to ensure a smooth and seamless operations of the other organs of Majlistt.
