Where we are?

Brief History

Madina Institute USA is a private, nonprofit institution in Duluth GA, the idea of which came about nearly thirty years ago, in 1989. Since its inception in California as the Ahlus Sunnah Association of North America, Shaykh Muhammad al-Ninowy has been committed to making the traditional Islamic Sciences accessible to the next generation of American Muslim scholars on U.S. soil, and calling American Muslims and Muslims worldwide to go back to the basics of the religion: the Qur’an and the Authentic Sunnah, in addition to teaching tolerance, peace, and compassion.

Shaykh Ninowy has been an integral part of the Atlanta community since 2000, when he began teaching students on the weekends as well as delivering sermons at Al-Madina Islamic Center and Institute in Norcross, Georgia. It was during this time that his popularity in the Atlanta area and abroad began to grow due to his ability to apply Islamic teachings to contemporary Western societies while reviving traditional approaches to the study of Islam. It was the increased interest from several dedicated students, which led him to officially found and register the Madina Institute in 2012.

Throughout its history, Madina Institute has encouraged understanding, appreciation, and compassion for the multicultural heritage of humankind while inspiring its students to be active and contributing members of our world and their respective local communities. Through a rigorous, Prophetic-centered education, we enable our students to grapple with and engage in the spiritual, intellectual, ethical, and cultural issues of our time, their implications, and applications to everyday life.
