In 2001, AISA was founded by Sheikh Khaled Bentounès in Drancy, France. Taking effect on the 19th of January, 2014, the 'special consultative status' was attributed to AISA by a committee of 60 UN member states. It thus became an officially accredited partner of the UN, with the right to participate as an observer in ECOSOC meetings.
