In 1989 there were approximately 10 Muslim families living in West Auckland (Ranui, Henderson, &Massey). Regular weekly Tabligh programs were held at various people’s houses. Local brothers decided a prayer center was required thus brother Sahil Shah kindly gave his house and garage for use.During Ramadan the Tarawih prayers were led by Br. Imtiyaz Ali where approx. 20 brothers attended. Madrasa classes were introduced by Molvi Ramazan Ali whom at that time lived in Mt Roskill and would travel every Sunday to conduct Quran classes for children. Children’s Quran classes were held at Mohammed Ali’s house (Also known as brother Tora)

West Auckland Mosque & Islamic Centre founder members included: Br. Sahil Shah, Br. Imtiyaz Ali, Br. Mohammed Bashir, Br. Raja Dhoray, Br. Abdul Gaffer, Br. Abdul Wahab & Br. Naushad who has since passed away (May Allah grant him Jannah – Ameen). West Auckland Mosque & Islamic Centre is the 3rd Mosque in New Zealand.Planning for the Mosque commenced in 1991.
