Intro
Ahmadiyya arrived in Trinidad and Tobago in 1952 (see mosques around the world). Our Foreign Missions (by Mirza Mubarak Ahmad) states that the Ahmadiyya mission was started in 1950. The first Ahmadiyya missionary sent to the island was Maulana Muhammad Ishaque Saqui. The Lahori-Ahmadi’s are also on the island and have had a jamaat for some years, they were also nearby in Guyana. By 2021, we estimate no more than 200 Ahmadi’s on the entire island.

1921

There are no records of Ahmadi Muslims in the Caribbean until 1921 when Maulana Durrani, an Ahmadi missionary from India, arrived in Trinidad (Samaroo ). After being bitterly opposed by the local leaders, he soon returned to India. He was nevertheless instrumental in persuading a Trinidadian, Ameer Ali, to take up a scholarship at an Ahmadi institute in Lahore in 1923.
