The Organization was established in Rabat, Kingdom of Morocco, on 12 Rajab 1389H (25 September 1969) when the first meeting of the leaders of the Islamic world was held in the wake of the criminal Zionist attempt to burn down the Blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque on 21st August 1969 in the occupied city of Al-Quds.

Six months after the historical event, i.e. in Muharram 1390H (march 1970), the First Islamic Conference of Foreign Ministers was held in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia during which the OIC General Secretariat was established to ensure coordination among Member States. The Conference appointed a Secretary General for the Organization and chose Jeddah as the city to house its temporary Headquarters pending the liberation of Al-Quds Al Sharif to which the General Secretariat will then be transferred, as the Permanent seat of the Organization.

In order to coordinate and boost its action, align its stand, and achieve concrete results in various fields of cooperation, politics, economy, culture, social, spiritual and science among Member States, the Islamic Summit Conference, which is the supreme policy and decision making body of the OIC, convened for the first time in Rabat, Kingdom of Morocco on 22-25 September 1969. Science that historic date, the Islamic Summit Conference has convened for nine times with the last (the ninth) conference held in Doha, Qatar on 12-13 November 2000. Putrajaya, Malaysia has been chosen as the venue for the Tenth Session of the Islamic Summit Conference to be held on 11-18 October 2003.
