The Rifai Thareeq Association (RTA) of Sri Lanka was founded in 1877 by His Eminence Seyyid Muhammed Yoosuf Rifai Thangal, at the Mohideen Mosque, Siripina Lane (now known as Rifai Thangal Lane), Colombo 12. He was the great grand-father of our present Rifai Moulana Al-Haj Muhammed Ashique Thangal. About 10 years later, his great grand-uncle established this Thareeqa at Kapuwatte, Weligama, where subsequently our Moulana’s grand-father built a Jumma Mosque.

Our Rifai Moulana and his forefathers, since 1877, have been rendering yeoman service to thousands of Sri Lankan muslims, helping them during their times of distress and difficulties by assisting them to seek solace in the teachings of the Holy Qur’an and in the traditions of the Holy Prophet Muhammed (on whom be peace and blessings). Thus, they have rendered 125 years of unbroken service to us through this Association.
