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. In 2021, the Amir of Trinidad and Tobago is Maulana Ibrahim bin Yaqub, he has been the Amir since 1991 when Mirza Tahir Ahmad appointed him after the death of Maulana Muhammad Ishaque Saqui, who had served as Amir and missionary-in-charge for almost 40+ years (Ahmadiyya Muslim Mosques Around The World – A Pictorical Presentation. Ahmadiyya Muslim Community; Khilafat Centenary Edition. 2008. ISBN 978-1882494514). Maulana Ibrahim Bin Yacoob was appointed as Amir and Missionary -in-charge from 1991 to present day (2022).
Underneath him is Maulana Talib Yacoob (who is a native of Trinidad and Tobago), and he served in Trinidad from 2004–2020 (when he died).

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.
