Malta was under Islamic rule for over 200 years during the Arab Conquest in 870 CE. Islam was reintroduced in the latter half of the 20th century. In present-day Malta, the Muslim community is limited to a few thousand, mostly people who are ethnically linked to North Africa and the Middle East. On the island of Malta, there is one mosque and an adjoined Muslim school.
Mariam Al-Batool Mosque is a mosque located in Paola, Malta. The first stone of the mosque was laid by Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in 1978 and its doors were open to the public in 1982, and officiated in 1984. Wikipedia
