Islamic College of Malaya (Malay: Kolej Islam Malaya, KIM) was founded in 1955 (1374 AH). KIM was built on a plot of land measuring approximately 14.3 acres located at Jalan Kota Raja, about a half mile from Klang.
The college was originally a palace, which was later donated by Sultan Hisamuddin Alam Shah al-Haj. He hoped that the college will produce scholars who fear Allah and this in turn illuminates the Malaysian society with spirits of Islam and to eliminate all forms of unbelief and ignorance there.
In 1966 (1386 AH), the college moved to a new building in Petaling Jaya (the current International Islamic University Malaysia Centre for Foundation Studies) and Bangi (the current National University of Malaysia Faculty of Islamic Studies), yet still continued its preparation courses in Klang.
In 1967, the college was taken by the Ministry of Education and had been made a government-aided school named Klang Islamic College (Malay: Kolej Islam Klang, KIK). Finally, in 1972, it was turned into a fully residential school with great facilities until today.
In 1989, KIK was renamed Sultan Alam Shah Islamic College (Malay: Kolej Islam Sultan Alam Shah, KISAS) by Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah al-Haj. Until now, the former Sultan's palace is still standing.
