The only Islamic organisation in the country founded in April 1981, that won its recognition from the government in November 1982.

The first person to embrace Islam on the soil of Papua New Guinea was Brother Sadiiq Sandbach, then a Scottish national – now a Papua New Guinean, who entered the fold of Islam in October 1982.

The first Papua New Guinean to embrace Islam was Alexander (Bilal) Dawia who declared Shahadah on the 18th of February 1986.

The number of people entering Islam since then is growing steadily and the organisation now have four branches operating in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea.
