1986: IED Trust was established. It had a very humble start with the establishment of the home-schooling cooperative. Parents and caregivers brought their children to provide education by way of supporting each other. The aim was to establish a foundation for the establishment of an Islamic school to be.
1992: This led to the registration of Al-Madinah School (AMS) on 17 Aug 1992 as a private FULL Primary (years 1 to 8) school with only nine students. It received its full registration on 17 December 1992. All of these happened at the ground floor of the Community Corrections building in Station Road, Otahuhu, Auckland where Br Jalal was working as the Probation Officer.
The current land on which the AMS is operating was bought in 1993 with funds raised in Saudi Arabia and the school was built in 1994 through funds raised and received predominantly from South Africa.
In 1995, AMS added the secondary section in its educational provision and hence got its status changed from a Full Primary to an Area School which caters for Years 1 to 13 students. The school was accepted into state integrated system on 25 March, 1996 and hence the operational and maintenance cost was fully funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Education.
Today AMS has 550 students with well over 500 students on its waiting list.
2000: The land for Masjid Al-Makhtoom (Airport Masjid) was bought and the masjid itself was built around 2002. This is about 2 km from the Auckland International/Domestic Airport. This masjid caters for around 600 to 700 Musallis and has around 500 Muslim families staying with a 5 km radius.
2001: The 5 acre land was bought to establish Zayed College for Girls (ZCG). The ZCG was built and started to operate around 2002.
2006: The Te Aroha Islamic Center was bought in Te Aroha, which is just over 100km from Auckland towards the South and is now fully operational. It is anticipated that a Masjid will be built in near future to replace the current old building.
2016: The Favona Islamic Center was established in a rental premises. It has been running and fulfilling all the needs of a typical Muslim community including 5 times prayer, Jumma and Taraweeh prayers, children’s education and ladies program.
2021: Land has been secured for Favona Islamic Centre to be permanently housed. This land now needs to be fully paid before the planning and building an Islamic HUB to cater for the needs for an active Islamic Community.
