The thought to set up a special centre for Quran studies was the brain child of a few of goodhearted brothers, who were looking to contribute something exceptional in the field of Quranic education for the benefit of children as well as adults by giving importance to recitation, memorization of the Quran and to the sciences derived from the book that could prepare a generation armed with thorough knowledge on Islam.
Leading this initiative was the late Aslam Mohiddeen, who presented the idea in front of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and the Ruler of Dubai. Aslam worked towards translating the idea into reality to his last breath. On his part HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum granted an ideal location, a land in Alqouz area for purpose of building the centre. Al Maktoum family promoted and did not squander a single chance for spreading the Holy Quran and its Sciences. Sheikha Hind Bint Maktoum Bin Juma Al Maktoum took care of all expenses to build a state-of-the-art building. Sheikh Ahmed Bin Mohammed Bin Rashi Al Maktoum inaugurated the centre on 2 Dec 2006 that coincided with national day celebration of UAE.
