This paper (presented at the Caribbean Muslim Forum 2005) is based on the era of East Indianship Indentureship to Trinidad in 1845 to present day. It largely leaves out the period of African Slavery due to a lack of readily documented accounts of that time. Also the early account of the Indentureship period is not presented in detail as the focus is on institutions that exist today. Time availability did not permit for a detailed account of the present day Islamic Educational Institutions. Mere reference is made of some operations through a personal involvement in the field. It would be fitting if statistics on enrollment, number of teachers, percentage of Muslim students, examination results, graduates who have moved on to leadership positions etc. could be presented.
