MUI History, Ideology & Mission

Muhammad University of Islam was established in 1934 by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in the city of Detroit, Michigan, and re-established in 1989 in Chicago, Illinois by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.

The Muhammad Universities of Islam were born from the need to revive, reform, and redeem those who had suffered from the mis-education of and hostility towards blacks in the public school system. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad founded the University of Islam because he knew that only a universal education rooted in freedom, justice, and equality could reverse the problems and challenges in the American educational system.

Mr. Muhammad established a vehicle that has enabled us to control the education of our children and consequently the direction of our future.

At Muhammad University of Islam, our mission is to develop a new educational paradigm for the 21st century that begins with a God-centered education. Our children are taught self-mastery. Mastery of self is the key to the mastering of all disciplines. Our focus is on literacy, training a generation of students to become leaders through their ability to be excellent readers, and in addition, our children are taught civility, culture, refinement, respect for others, good manners, and good morals. We are committed to providing a superior system of education that will prepare our children to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world in the 21st century and beyond.
