Imam Mohammad Ali Elahi established the Islamic House of Wisdom in 1995. In 1996, the congregation was moved from its original Schaefer location to a larger mosque on Ann Arbor Trail in order to accommodate the growing membership. This new building originally housed two Christian organizations, the Fairlane Assembly Church and Detroit World Outreach. The mosque is devoted to its outreach and community service programs, and holds several community and interfaith events.
