The college is managed by the Jamiya Mannaniya Islamiya Charitable Society, a brain child of Dakshina karala Jamiyathul Ulama. The Jamiyathul Ulama was born out of the strenuous efforts of a group of far-sighted Ulamas to form an authentic association for Islamic Scholars of the Southern Kerala in the year 1955. Since then it has been spearheading the renaissance movement of the Muslim community in particular and the people of the state in general. Its headquarters is situated in the historic town of Kollam.
The year 1986 was a turning point in the history of Dakshina Kerala Jamiyathul Ulama. It was in this year that Jamiyathul Ulama gave birth to Jamiya Mannaniya Islamiya Charitable Society with the objective of uplifting both educationally and socially Muslims and other weaker sections of the society, the Charitable Society has been in the forefront in helping the poor and needy and also lending an arm of support to orphans, widows and destitute. To translate its objectives and aims into action, the Jamia Mannaniya Islamiya Charitable Society has started a number of institutions in various parts of Southern Kerala with its headquarters at Varkala.
But the long cherished dream of the founding fathers of the Dakshina Kerala Jamiyathul Ulama and Mannaniya Charitable Society to enter into the main stream higher education sector of the State was realized only in 1995. The Mannaniya Society and its parent body Jamiyath became the first of its kind in India to establish an Arts & Science College. Thus the Jamiyyath sets an example to the Islamic reform movement in India. The word Mannaniya is a synonym to the Almighty Allah and it denotes Kindness. By selecting Pangode, an underdeveloped rural area, which is mostly inhabited by the downtrodden of the society, who had been denied the right to education for generations, the Jamiyyath and Mannaniya Society fulfilled its commitment to the weaker sections and realized the spirit of its nomenclature.
