Established in 1993, the Al-Mahdi Institute is committed to providing an open platform for critical Muslim scholarship through its education, research and outreach initiatives. Its unique approach to training future generations of thinkers assimilates traditional seminary scholarship with modern approaches to the study of Islam, leaving students well-equipped to contribute meaningfully in both academic circles and grass-roots communities. Through its long-term commitment to both intra and inter-faith dialogue, the Institute’s activities provide a platform for diverse religious voices to learn from one another.
