The Canberra Islamic Centre after vandalism attack The Canberra Islamic Centre was extensively vandalised on Sunday 13 April 2014. Members of the Canberra Islamic Centre discovered the centre had been broken into by intruders for the second time in the past eight days after they arrived for evening prayers about 5.30pm. The attack took place some time bewteen 7am and 5pm on Sunday. The Police were called and along with forensic experts examined the damage. The Canberra Mulsim Community were in shock after the inside of the centre had been completely trashed. It appears it was a targeted attack by the perpetrators who had knowledge of the fact that that Sunday there were no planned activities taking place at the Centre. From the extent of damage done it would appear that there were a number of indviduals involved and their aim was to cause as much damage as possible in order to make

the Centre non functional. The perpetrators had smashed all five television screens, extensively damaged the main power board for the centre, and smashed computers, photocopiers, phones, fans and audio visual equpiment. They also punched holes in walls and smashed glass pains in doors through out the building. The kitchen was also targetted and crockery and cutlery was smashed, the deep freezer and bain marie. Flour, oil, sugar and sauce was

This joint campaign was initiated by Turkish Humanitarian NGO, IHH Insani Yardim Vakfi. Amongst the containers being distributed are flour, rice, water, milk, baby packs and the Help Syria Move Forward mobility aids donated by the Australian Muslim community. Muslim Aid Australia, Queensland’s Muslim Charitable Foundation and the Al-Imdaad Foundation are amongst the local Australian NGOs who have joined forces to help the large numbers of distressed Syrian families..

Islamic paintings were riped off walls and damaged and bookshelves inside the Australian National Islamic Library were pushed over causing hundreds of books to be crushed and thrown all over the floors. Following the event, an ACT Policing spokeswomen said forensic officers examined the site but it was too early to speculate on who the offenders were. The severity of the attack and the extend of the damage attracted much attention by the media. There was national reporting of what had occured including daily coverage by the Canberra Times but it was also reported across all national papers and on all commercial TV channels as well as ABC and SBS. With this media coverage came an immediate outpouring of support and concern from the

entire community. The Centre also received calls from New Zealand, and Dubai as well as hundreds of local phone calls, emails and offers to donate towards the cost of damage which has been estimated to be over two hundred thousand dollars. The Ambassador of the United States of America Mr John Berry was one of the first to contact the Centre’s President Mrs Azra Khan. He visited the Centre to offer his support and to see first hand the damage done. A clean up day was organised on Wednesday 14 April which saw over a hundred people from the wider community who come to help clean up. A contingent of Ambassadors and High Commissioners from 18 foreign missions also came to condemn the targeted attack and to offer their support to members of the Canberra Islamic Centre. A media release condeming the attack was issued by the Archbishop of Canberra and Goulburn Archbishop Christopher Prowse.

2014 Interfaith Cup More than 50 students from a variety of religious and cultural backgrounds have taken part in the 2014 Interfaith Cup at Visy Park. The Interfaith Cup is in its second consecutive year and was held on Thursday 20 March. It’s a collaboration between the Carlton Football Club and the AFL Multicultural Program, that encourages open forum discussions surrounding faith and traditional practices. The schools that participated included Australian International Academy, The Some of the students who took part in the 2014 Interfaith Cup at Visy Park. King David School, Scotch (Photo: Carlton Football Club) College and Simonds College. An array of topics were discussed including Aboriginal culture, history and tradition. In particular, students The following students were involved: were given a unique insight into Marngrook, the Surname First Name (year level) Aboriginal game which is believed to have played a fundamental role in the birth of Australian Rules WARDAK Roya 7 Football.

OBEID Nada (10) “We don’t evangelise or promote any one faith, but MALLOUK Rima (10) rather share the faith, tradition and practice of all those represented in the room.” The final two students were students mentors who help facilitate the faith based dialogue session between participants.

MELBOURNE CITY COUNCIL GRANT HELPS YOUNG AFRICANS VIA SPORT African Think Tank &Team Africa “Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to unite in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.” - Nelson Mandela A grant from Melbourne City Council is helping young, disadvantaged people of African descent increase their self-worth and societal integration via sport. The MCC grant, along with help from North Melbourne Football club, the Huddle and local businesses and the work of a number of African-Australian communities Leaders, and mainstream volunteers has helped Team Africa become established and to receive professionalgrade training and coaching. The team, which has been established for the last three years, also receives encouragement and assistance from North Melbourne Football Club, the Kangaroos, where prominent African-Australian player Majak Daw assists with participation. The Australian Football League (AFL) Multicultural program recently honoured the Eritrean and African Community leader Mr. Yasseen Musa with the title of Community Ambassador of the year 2013. Team Africa includes young people from a wide range of African-Australian communities, including Zimbabwe, Congolese, Eritrea, Sth Sudanese; Sudanese, Somali, Ethiopian, South Africa, Botswana, Egypt, Kenya and many other communities. This also brings parents and supporters from many communities together. Team Africa recently competed in the annual Unity Cup and Harmony Cup with outstanding results. Both competitions seek to use sport to enhance fair play, discipline, and cultural harmony and

understanding. The Unity Cup, which has been running since 2008, has been jointly established between Essendon Football Club and the Australian Federal Police (AFP), and is now supported by Western Bulldogs, North Melbourne; Melbourne; and Hawthorn Football Clubs; The Malka Lawrence group and other local businesses with other Multicultural communities. The seventh annual Unity Cup championships and family day – which featured a ninea-side Aussie Rules competition that includes teams from local Muslim, Jewish, African, Indian, Pakistani and Indigenous communities – was held on Sunday 16 March 2014 in Melbourne to coincide with the Kensington Community Festival. Unity cup aims to create better understanding between AFP and multicultural communities, and between communities following different religions, especially Muslim, Christian and Jewish. This year, there were nine teams from Melbourne’s Muslim, Jewish and Indigenous communities including a mixed Muslim/Jewish team. The event was held at J.J. Holland Football ground at Kensington. Team Africa boys was successful in winning the competition.

Harmony Cup, which was created in 2007 by Aussie Rules International, brings together eight teams from Lebanon, Ireland, Israel, Albania and Greece, along with an indigenous team (Australia), Team Africa and Team Harmony. The competition was won by Team Lebanon (congratulations), but Team Africa achieved a fantastic second place. A first and a second place did wonders for community morale, especially since the program has been running for such a short time. Such results also increase the school acceptance and community acceptance of the African-Australian members, and encourage their own community programs. The sense of pride reduces antisocial behaviour. Altogether a wonderful result. The African Think Tank and Team Africa thank Melbourne City Council; North Melbourne Football Club, Essendon Football Club, Australian Federal Police, AFL Multicultural Program and numerous other supporters, businesses, and parents for their assistance. Our special thanks also goes to Team coaches, managers, players and Team Africa committee members for their dedication and commitment.

Final draw revealed for biggest football tournament on Australian soil Oman and Kuwait join South Korea and hosts Australia; three Gulf countries in one group

Younis Mahmoud (who captained the Iraqi national side to victory in the 2007 AFC Asian Cup) and Takashi Fukunishi (who played in the Japanese team that won the title in 2011) bring the cup to the Sydney Opera House for the final draw of the 2015 event Photo: AFC Asian Cup

The Socceroos will clash with two-time champions the Korea Republic, Oman and Kuwait in the group stage of the AFC Asian Cup. Organisers say an estimated 40 million people across Asia watched the tournament’s final draw at the Sydney Opera House on 26 March 2014. Australia’s coach Ange Postecoglu believes his side’s Group A rivals won’t be pushovers. “Every opponent in our group needs to be respected,” he said. “The beauty of having a tough group as we do is that if you get through it you know you’re a serious contender in the knockout stages of the tournament.” Australia will face Kuwait in the opening game on 9 January 2015 at the Melbourne Rectangular Stadium. Saudi Arabia ended up in what’s being called the most ‘open’ group with no clear frontrunner. The Green Falcons face off against Group B opponents Uzbekistan, the People’s Republic of China, and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. With three Gulf nations in Group C, the draw was a bit of a disappointment for United Arab Emirates coach Mahdi Ali. "I did not wish to have three [Gulf] nations in the same group to give more chances for them to qualify,” he said. That group consisting of the UAE, Bahrain and Qatar is rounded off with World Cup finalists Iran, who have won the Asian Cup three times. The AFC Asian Cup’s current reigning champions, the Samurai Blues, were drawn in Group D along with Jordan, Iraq and the as-yet unknown winner of the AFC Challenge Cup. Japan Football Association General Secretary Hara Hiromi is expecting strong competition from both Middle Eastern sides. “We have played both teams (Iraq and Jordan) in the World Cup qualifiers, and both matches were tough, so we expect these matches will also be tough,” he said. Japan, Iraq and Jordan are Asian football heavyweights, so Group D is considered one of the hardest in the tournament. The AFC Asian Cup begins on 9 January 2015 with matches in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Newcastle.

Nasya Bahfen is a senior lecturer in media at the University of New South Wales and a community ambassador for the AFC Asian Cup 2015.

Malek Fahd Islamic School is the largest Islamic School in the country with enrolments of more than 2500 across the three campuses. In 2013 we had 134 students sitting the HSC in a variety of subjects at the Greenacre Campus and we had 45 students getting an ATAR of more than 90. The school was ranked 62nd in the State and number 1 in the Bankstown region. We have proven our results and existence time and time again in the community. Our students succeed in the HSC because of the hard work from teachers and the untiring support from parents and a lot of perseverance from our students. The highest ATAR was 99.65. We would like to congratulate Dialah Hamadan El Madi for the achievement. Since the first graduation of the first year 12 in 2000, majority of Yearr 12 students secured University entry. Our school is proud of all the post graduates as we have a number of doctors, lawyers, accountants, engineer, architects, teachers and an ongoing list of professionals who are humbly serving our Australian community. We encourage our students to do well by offering them some scholarships at Malek Fahd every year. We are pleased to announce 21 scholarships ranging from full year to one term for students who were outstanding in maths and science. These students go on to do extension 1 and 2 mathematics. The school has a very rigid teaching timetable where students are given maximum benefit of time during the day, so all the content is thoroughly covered and we have teachers available before and after school and during the school to help students with their learning. Not only has the school grown in size and number but it has also cultivated a reputation for delivering academic excellence within an Islamic atmosphere. The school motto is ‘knowledge is light, work is worship’.

Hajj Hafez Kassem In the name of Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful God Willing, from now on I will address the Islamic community through Al Wasat Newspaper on a monthly basis to communicate and inform you of AFIC projects and updates. I would like to begin by saying that the AFIC Executive Committee is open to discuss any idea or suggestion that might be useful and helpful to the Islamic community. All suggestions are most welcome. From the first day we assumed power at AFIC, our primary aim was to focus on working towards developing the performance of AFIC and make its role more effective in terms of serving the community in a better way, and alhamdullilah I am pleased to announce that we have reached an advanced level in this regard. One of our biggest achievements in the education field was recently increasing the capacity of Malek Fahd Islamic School – Greenacre campus to 2100 students and restoring the state government funding to this school. In addition to that, construction works are underway for two new campuses of Malek Fahd at Hoxton Park and Beaument Hills with each school having the capacity and potential of becoming as big as the main Greenacre campus Also, our other schools are also advancing and progressing and we are receiving positive feedback from all schools and states. AFIC currently operates 8 schools throughout the country. In addition to that, AFIC continues to provide financial support to rural mosques and Islamic centres around Australia. Finally, I want to stress that your brothers and sisters in the AFIC leadership are open to cooperate with all societies, organisations and volunteers for the betterment and benefit of the Muslims community and the wider Australian community.

AFIC HISTORY In 1963 the Australian Muslim community adopted an organisational structure for the cause of Islam in Australia. At the grass roots level local Muslims formed Islamic Societies to serve their basic needs in terms of education and prayer facilities. The building of Mosques and providing religious education became the primary objective. The Islamic Councils of each State and Territory united to form State Islamic Councils representing their respective Muslim communities at the peak State level. At the national level the State and Territory Islamic Councils formed the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils Inc (AFIC), as the national umbrella organisation for Australian Muslims representing Islam and Muslims at a national and international level. AFIC has its head office in Sydney with branch offices in Melbourne. As a democratic organisation, AFIC holds Federal Council Meetings with all State and Territory affiliates quarterly and an Annual Congress with all State , Territory Councils and Societies participating. The AFIC Committee of Management is elected every three years by the Annual Congress.

Life lessons 101 By Maryam Omran (Hume Islamic Youth Centre (HIYC))

Experience is a great teacher. It gives you the test first and the lesson after. But what does Islam teach us about dealing with these tests? Fortunately for us, whatever the test is, Islam has an answer for it that has been vocalized and practised by our great Prophet (p.b.u.h.) . There isn’t a single scenario that could happen to us that we are its sole inheritor. We all suffer from some sort of loss in our life- the great scholars (May Allah bestow his mercy upon them all) say life is based on loss not gain, so we should live our lives accustomed to this principle. Strength comes from living through this loss, understanding it and accepting it. Islam teaches us that all trials are good for believers. The worst setbacks will appear trivial once we understand this concept. If we lose and we are patient with Allah’s(SWT) decree our patience is rewarded. If we become better people because of it, we have gained more than what we have lost. Allah (SWT) tests us to bring us closer to him, to remind us that this life is not meant to be all fun and games. To remind us there is far better awaiting us if we are patient and steadfast. Allah (SWT) says in the Quran which similarly translates to: “And certainly we will test you with something of fear,

hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to Al-Sabireen (the patient ones) who, when afflicted with calamity, say: Truly! To Allah we belong and to him we return” Surah Al-Baqara Ayah 155-156 So, why is it when calamity befalls us we are so quick to doubt ourselves and question the test as if we could prevent it or change what Allah (SWT) has written for us? Well, one theory is that the human being is an intricate creature and as such, we are more reactive to visual situations than auditory. If we were to hear that our house has been set on fire, our hearts would start beating, our minds would go into panic, but as soon as we arrive at the house and actually see it engulfed in flames that’s when we break down and cry. It is the nature of the human spirit- we hold on to the last strings of hope, wishfully thinking perhaps it was just a dream and when we wake up in the morning it will all go back to how it was. Denial seems a less painful option than reality- but nonetheless, one we must face. What happens in the case when it is a believer that has wronged us? How do we react and what are the neccessary steps one should have in his heart and with his actions? Ibn al Qayyim ‫ رحمه اهلل‬has a philosophy with such instances: he states that if a person comes to you and makes a sincere apology upon wronging you, if you

are truly a person of humility, then you are obliged to accept that apology. Although, in practice this is a view that we should instil within us as a basic principle and moreover general approach to our fellow muslims. Of course there are situations that forgiveness is not an option and justice needs to be sought. But Islamic principles are based on circumstances and individual cases have their precedent set. In conclusion, whether it be divorce, death, betrayal or an ailment: point of view can make all the difference in the world. Hold on to your Islam with the belief that Allah (SWT) has decreed this for you as a source of benefit whether you see it or not, and the struggle that seems like a mountain on your shoulders, will shrink to the size of a small mound like that of ants nest. In Surah al Ankabut Ayah 2-3 Allah (SWT) says in the Quran which similarly translates to : “Do men think that they will be left alone saying,’We believe’, and that they will not be tested? We did test those before them, and Allah (SWT) will certainly know those who are true from those who are false.” [29:2-3] Oh fellow believers, keep this in the back of your mind always and within the surface of your heart as a shield and trials will find a place in your life that seem a little less difficult to comprehend as we struggle through each day. Wassalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarkatu.

A Neglected Journey ”I have the largest crown ever seen, Though I don’t wear the pomp of a queen, My roots are strong, My limbs are long, I do no wrong, I am surrounded by all these loud birds, Yet our subtle songs are unheard, They say I am the loveliest of sights, So why is it that I am accorded no rights” Every day she cries like this. She stands with her regular stance, being pushed around by external forces. She remains stoic in her silent calls for help as she never wants to bother anyone and just hopes that for all she does for others that maybe her hard work would be recognised and her efforts reciprocated. You see she has many jobs. She has many who are reliant on her. From childhood she has been helping others, oh what a charitable being she is. She is a distributor of sorts. She supplies farmers, manufacturers and even Building companies. From childhood she was ever so helpful. She sprang to life in the most elegant of manners and just her existence was a breath of fresh air for everything and every person around her. Every year she paints a beautiful canvass under her feet. Her domain does not need to be cleaned by others, she is a queen who sets a beautiful scene. Eventually though, she was neglected. It was only everyone else who got to taste the fruits of her labours. At times she would just stand still as others would attack her crown, yet still she wanted nothing less than to help others. Her services began to become overused.

Her place was all of a sudden open to abuse, and she became sick as the fossils of her ancestors’ fumed to become for human desires nothing more than a cheap fuel. All of her facilities were being utilised by others whom she didn’t even know and it was continually being invaded by creatures. At times she would be pecked at by birds. Even her crown, which should be a cause for respect, often housed birds’ nests. Even still she was happy to help and continued to provide her essential services. One day though, she could feel her roots being tampered with and as her hairs began to detach, she knew that no one cared for her existence anymore. She was sure that this was going to be the end of her life. She was right. Everyone was so used to using her, even in her death they tried to find use. They mutilated her. They ignored her beauty, but after killing her, they never had to hear her cries again. Her home was soon bought by a businessman to do as he pleases. She never got a say as to what would happen with her life while living and in death she had never been respected enough to be allowed even the typical “Rest in Peace”. As for her body, it was carefully processed. The useable parts were determined then recycled for commercial items. Her dead body was separated just to be subject to graffiti and what the children refer to as ABC (already been chewed). She was unique in ways but she wasn’t the only one who experienced this. He was under similar circumstances. His resources weren’t used so much during

his life but once he was dead he was completely exploited. His body was also mutilated. It was transformed to a particular shape and size, desirable to his new manufacturer. It is then dipped and dyed and designed to be sold to consumers. These consumers are currently vandalising him. They tear him into pieces. They may cut him down to different shapes and sizes to please them. At times they do this just to reattach his limbs with stick substances then firmly press them against him to make sure he will be stuck permanently. Stripping him of his identity they give him a personality that they have created themselves. He is converted to diaries and forced to be subjected to a little girl’s personal problems. He is home to inappropriate images and messages. He is stuck with other people’s mistakes. If those mistakes are to be corrected he is scribbled on and crossed out. There is no respect for the dead. They were of the most noble of beings. Throughout their lives they did nothing but try to help everyone, and in death they were robbed of the peaceful ending they deserved. Instead of being able to determine their own lives, they have their whole journey dictated by other living organisms with their self-proclaimed superiority. So many have died. If everyone just listened they would hear the cries: “You need no one more than me, Let us live, Save the trees.”

Al-TABARI

By: Hakan Çoruh

Abu Ja’far Muhammad ibn Jarir al-tabari wrote a commentary on the Qur’an which is a major tradition based exegesis from the classical period. His landmark work has been considered as a key source of exegesis from the classical period up to the present. In addition, he was an expert and a significant writer in a variety of Islamic disciplines such as history, jurisprudence. Al-Tabari was born in Amul, the province of Tabaristan, Persia in 224–225/838–839 during the years of Abbasid Empire. He received an early education in his native city of Amul, and he travelled far for further knowledge. He memorised the full text of the Qur’an by the age of seven. He travelled for his education throughout the Abbasid areas, from Rayy in Persia to Baghdad and then to such places as Basrah, Kufah, Cairo, and parts of Syria. Al-Tabari settled in Baghdad in 256/870, and he remained there until his death. Baghdad was the city of culture and learning. Until his arrival in Baghdad , there had been intense ideological confrontation during the first half of the third/eighth century between Mu‘tazila, the rationalist theological school, and ahl alhadith, the traditionalist movement. The latter triumphed over Mu‘tazila on account in large part of Ahmad ibn Hanbal’s (d. 241/855) efforts, and the rationalist Mu‘tazili movement lost its political power. Al-Tabari arrived in Baghdad in that time, when the Mu‘tazila had declined, and he took an anti- Mu‘tazila line in his Qur’an commentary. He was a leading authority and great scholar in his time, so much so that a separate madhhab (law school), named the Jaririyya, was established after him. Al-Tabari’s introduction of a new school of law caused numerous debates. There was an antagonism and opposition from followers of Ahmad ibn Hanbal because of Al-Tabari’s rival school of thought. Al-Tabari had not made any reference to Ibn Hanbal in his book Ikhtilaf al-fuqaha’ (The Differences among the Jurists), and later arguing that Ibn Hanbal was a scholar of Tradition, not a jurist. Here it should be noted that Al-Tabari’s school of law did not survive for a long time; it quite disappeared from Baghdad by the end of the eleventh century. He was one of the most prolific scholars and of great minds of his era. The extent of his erudition and a large number of his written works impressed his biographers. His disciples divided his total works by his years of life, concluding that he had written an average of fourteen pages a day. While he produced numerous works, many of which have not survived. He engaged with various fields of scholarship: exegesis, history, jurisprudence, recitation of the Qur’an, grammar, lexicography as well as various other disciplines. Two works are of particular significance among his collection: Ta’rikh alrusul wa-al-muluk (The History of Messengers and Kings) and Jami al-Bayan an Ta’wil Ay alQur’an (The Comprehensive Clarification of the Interpretation of the Verses of the Qur’an).

regular income, so that such income could be utilized to help other Masjids in Melbourne. - As the Muslim community is growing, demands for old homes, religious education centres for adult/ children,funeral services for low income earners are also growing. Alhamdulillah, we have organized number of free funeral services and currently owing ten burial spots at Werribee Cemetery and one at Springvale Cemetery. We plan to buy more in near future for the benefit of common Muslims. - Currently we are facing huge problem for car parking in Huntingdale. Several incidents had occurred between the neighbors and attending Mussallies on Fridays. Therefore, we need the adjacent properties for building car parks; otherwise the City Council would not permit us to do any further developments of the Masjid. As part of our Master plan, once we would acquire “C & D” (in the above

Moreover, we intend to build small apartments in property “B & C”; with car park facility on the third floor and the roof panel. If the council permits, large underground car park also may be built in future. We now need 1000-2000 members to contribute $10-$20/month ($5/ week) at least for fiveten years; which will give us opportunity to acquire the remaining properties as shown in the photo above.

ACCESS Ministries Cross Cultural Training ICV ICV was delighted to contribute to the ACCESS ministries Cross Cultural Engagement training for first-year Chaplains and Student Wellbeing Workers. The training took place on Thursday 17th April from 12:00-1:00pm at Camberwell Sister Lina Ayoubi coordinator of ICV Pastoral care presented to approximately 40 people, currently working as ACCESS ministries Chaplains or Student Wellbeing Workers in schools around Victoria ,who were eager to learn about respectful pastoral engagement with young people and families, especially when working with people from a cultural or faith group they are unfamiliar with. The presentation touched

on some key questions about Muslim community representation around Victoria: population, location, cultural groups, what cultural or relational elements that Chaplains/ Student Wellbeing Workers would do well to be aware of when offering pastoral care to a young person or family

from an Islamic background ie. modest clothing, contact between genders, Halal food, etc about rituals and festivals important to Muslims. and how Chaplains and Student Wellbeing at schools may respond on behalf of the school when there is a happy or tragic occasion such as death or

significant trauma in a family/community and how to reach out to a grieving family. The feedback from participants and Access ministries management was extremely positive: bridges and friendships were sure to stay.

BUNYIP KNIGHTS AND DAMES One of the ongoing struggles in Australian society has been the conflict between the notion of social hierarchy and that of an egalitarian society. Under the early governors, Bligh and Macquarie, the struggle was between Emancipists (freed convicts and their families) and Bilal Cleland the Exclusives (free settlers). ilal42@bigpond.com The latter felt inherently superior to those who had been in bondage, who they insisted, should be denied civil rights. Governor Bligh did not bend to the will of the free settlers and officers of the NSW garrison. They overthrew him in the Rum Rebellion coup in 1808. My great great great grandfather, an emancipist and a constable in Van Diemen’s Land, signed the petition against the traitors. Several of the petitioners were flogged by the administration of Van Diemen’s Land, which supported the Rum Rebels and their leader, John Macarthur. Macarthur and his cronies formed the backbone of those greedy few who saw themselves as born to rule over their inferiors. They were also enthusiastic supporters of the free slave labour provided by the convict system. His son, along with political ally William Charles Wentworth, a progressive Emancipist who had turned extreme conservative by the 1850s, sought the creation of an hereditary aristocracy in the Australian colony, which would control a NSW version of the House of Lords. This major threat to the future development of a democratic constitution was eventually defeated. One of the major contributions to its defeat was a speech in 1853 by republican Daniel Deniehy. He showed that this ‘bunyip aristocracy’ would mean a feudal society for Australia: “We were not permitted to form our own Constitution, but instead we were to have one and an Upper Chamber cast upon us, built upon a model to suit the taste and propriety of certain political oligarchs, who treated the people at large as if they were cattle to be bought and sold in the market, as indeed they were in American slave states, and now in the Australian colonies, where we might find bamboozled Chinese and kidnapped Coolies.” Cheap Chinese labour, probably kidnapped to work in slave like conditions, was now favoured as a replacement for convict labour, by these pretenders to nobility. Deneihy savaged them mercilessly: “Next came the native aristocrat James MacArthur, he would he supposed, aspire to the coronet of an earl, he would call him the Earl of Camden and he suggests for his coat of arms a field vert, the heraldic term for green, and emblazoned on this field should be a rum keg of a New South Wales order of chivalry.” The rum keg was reminding the pretentious fool of his family origins, in the Rum Rebellion. The democratic spirit was already so strong in the colony that this proposal was abandoned. Not until the Order of Australia was introduced in 1975 was an Australian honours system introduced. Until then British honours were awarded to Australians The egalitarian, republican spirit remained strong throughout the 1800s. The most famous of all Australian writers, Henry Lawson, in 1887 wrote “A Song of the Republic” in which he called for a new society in Australia, distinct from the old world with its injustices, class system and monarchy, which threatened to make “a hell in a Paradise”. He contrasted the dead land of the old country with the young green “land that belongs to you”. Sons of the South, make choice between (Sons of the South, choose true), The Land of Morn and the Land of E’en, The Old Dead Tree and the Young Tree Green, The Land that belongs to the lord and the Queen, And the Land that belongs to you. Here we are in 2014 with an echo of the imperial British honours system of “knights and dames” introduced by an English immigrant Prime Minister, who apparently hankers after the ways of his aristocratic superiors in the old country. As Deniehy reminded the aristocratic pretenders of the colony in 1853: “The stately aristocracy of England was founded on the sword. The men who came over with the conquering Norman were the masters of the Saxons, and so became the aristocracy. The followers of Oliver Cromwell were the masters of the Irish, and so became their aristocracy.” He then asked upon what basis Wentworth and his cronies had conquered the local population, for that was what aristocracy signifies. We might well ask, upon what did Abbott base his new imperial honours aristocracy? Does he think he has conquered us like William the Bastard in 1066?

For the past 7 years Human Appeal International has been hosting the Year 12 Muslim Achievement Awards. This event recognises the achievement of students who receive an ATAR over 90%. Alhamdulillah there were over 60 students who were awarded by local sponsors. Present on the night were numerous representatives from various communities and community groups. The atmosphere was very uplifting and we were inspired by the speeches, such as the one made by Dr Zachariah Matthews and Senator Mehmet Tilem. One of the highlights of the night was the video which showcased the journey of some of the first and second year recipients. The video showed how the students have progressed through the different stages of their lives, moving from high school graduates, to University graduates and then as employees in their career fields. Overall, Human Appeal is always proud of the achievements of the students and is always looking forward to making future events more successful. We pray that theses students can pave the way for future success stories that reflect the progress of the Australian Muslim youth of this country.

The Crescent Institute welcomed Ahmed Fahour The Crescent Institute welcomed Ahmed Fahour, CEO of Australia post and Patron of the Islamic Museum of Australia (IMA) on the 25th of March 2014. The event took place at KPMG’s Melbourne office attracting a diverse attendance both interested in the dual topics of Australia post and its future direction as well as

social initiatives such as the Islamic museum of Australia. Talal Yassine OAM, Patron of the Crescent Institute formally introduced the guest of honour. Ahmed Fahour commenced his address by thanking the audience for attending and was delighted exclaiming “I am honoured that you have chosen to spend tonight here with me as opposed to going home after a long day at work”. Ahmed began with the Islamic Museum of Australia discussing the idea behind this initiative and what he hoped it would achieve in Australia. He emphasised that “through the area of the arts one can express something in an uncontroversial way”. He described the many challenges the four-year journey took but also the fantastic support from all parts of the community in working together and achieving the

end result of the first Islamic museum in Australia. Mr Fahour also delved into the intricate design details and efforts put into the Museum to create a hybrid Australian-Islamic feel illustrating the intertwined nature of both cultures. Mr Fahour then shifted to his current role as CEO of Australia Post. “ We have worked very hard over the past 4 years to in a sense rejuvenate an iconic Australian business which has been operating for 205 years”. Ahmed highlighted the fact that the Australia Post’s business model of delivering letters was under deep threat given the advancements of technology. Ahmed went on to describe the challenges in transforming Australia Post where the average Australian household received 1.5 letters per day compared with the hundreds of electronic messages sent daily from email, text messaging and social media posts. With the exponential growth in electronic forms of communication Australia Post cannot in the future maintain a business model for 200 years anymore and must constantly and consistently always look for development opportunities to remain competitive, innovative and productive into the future. The final segment of the evening was question time where Mr Fahour fielded a wide range of questions ranging from everyday challenges during his stint at NAB during the global financial crisis,

The Islamic Community Centre (ICC) and Oromo Learning & Guidance Centre in Australia raised more than $160,000 during a fundraising dinner on Saturday, April 5 in Tottenham. All proceeds will go towards a multipurpose centre which will be built on 8017 meter square land located in Ravenhill - 22km from Melbourne CBD. ICV executive committee member Osama Saad attended the dinner and said it was a true display of community spirit.

The program offers four Muslim students the opportunity to complete one year of study at the Muslim world’s first and most prestigious Islamic University in Cairo, Egypt.

By bringing together the study of a number of subjects in the same place it was one of the first universities in the world and the only one to survive as a modern university including secular subjects in the curriculum. It is today the chief centre of Arabic literature and Islamic learning in the world. It is the oldest degree-granting university in Egypt. In 1961 additional nonreligious subjects were added to its curriculum. To register contact ICV via (03) 9328 2067 / admin@icv.org.au

Human Appeal Raisers over $466,000

for Syria with its 3 City Fundraising Dinners Human Appeal Int. Australia Between Friday the 11th of April and Sunday the 13th; Human Appeal International Australia hosted a 3 City Fundraising Dinner for Syria. With 2 massive International Guests, the dinners were sure to be a sellout. For the dinner in Adelaide, Human Appeal International collaborated with the Islamic Information Centre of SA. Together they prepared an amazing venue—The Grand Ballroom, program, and atmosphere which took the Adelaide audience inside Syria and to live amongst its suffering victims. The night featured Quran reciting by Br Mohammed El Sayid, as well as singing by the popular nasheed artist, Yahya Hawa. The people of Adelaide managed to raise $127,000. The fundraising dinner also marked the official opening

and establishment of Human Appeal International’s third Australian office. In Sydney, the dinner took place at the Millennium room within ANZ Stadium, Sydney Olympic Park. Once again Yahya Hawa, along with our very own local talent: Essra Zahraman, touched the hearts of the audience with their awe inspiring voices; singing of the Syrians’ suffering. In total, the people of Sydney managed to raise over $235,000, the highlight of the night being a simple damaged toy— given by a Syrian refugee girl wanting it to be sold to aid her own people—bought for a staggering $10,000. The evening concluded with dinner as the audience left to their homes knowing that they participated in lifting the struggle of the Syrian victims. Finally, in Melbourne, the dinner took place at The Laila Reception Centre. It would be the last performance for international nasheed artist; Yahya Hawa, who delivered sensationally. Dr Saleh

Mubarak, who had spoken in the previous two dinners as well—provided the audience with a very inspiring and motivating speech, so much so that by the end of the night; 50 orphans had been sponsored, and over $104,000 was raised for those in Syria. Overall, more than $466,000 dollars was raised by the Muslims in Australia. The lives of many Syrian people will be changed through the generosity of donors. Human Appeal International Australia would like to thank all those who donated, those who volunteered on the nights, as well as the professional staff at the locations the dinners were had.

As you may be aware, the Federal Government is proposing changes to the Racial Discrimination Act (RDA). The ICV has been preparing various submissions to oppose these changes.

Crescentwealth The growing cultural diversity of AFL football got another roar of support today with Islamic wealth manager Crescent Wealth announcing its sponsorship of Richmond Tigers defender Bachar Houli, the AFL’s first practising Muslim player. Known for his strong commitment to the Islamic faith and his role as AFL Multicultural Ambassador, Houli prays five times a day and finds time in his busy schedule to educate his team-mates and supporters on Muslim beliefs and attitudes. Born in Australia in 1988 to Lebanese parents, Houli showed a strong passion for sport at a very young age, despite there being little sport played at his Islamic schools and the disapproval of his parents, who saw it as a distraction from his studies. With his now extremely supportive family by his side, Houli has cemented his place in the line-up at

Richmond, to which he was drafted in 2010 after making his debut with the Essendon Bombers in 2006. Under the one-year sponsorship arrangement, Houli will become a Crescent Wealth Advocate, working with the Crescent Wealth team to raise awareness of multiculturalism in Australian communities through sport. Crescent Wealth managing director, Talal Yassine OAM, said: “Bachar Houli is a great role model and an ideal representative of our Community Partnerships Program dedicated to fostering prosperous communities through health and fitness. “Our sponsorship of Bachar continues Crescent’s record for promoting tolerance and diversity through sport. The partnership follows our announcement last year of a three-year sponsorship deal with then Auburn Giants, the first predominately Muslim women’s AFL team in Western Sydney which has recently announced a partnership with GWS Giants,” Mr Yassine said. Bachar Houli

said: “I’m grateful for the opportunity to be appointed a Crescent Wealth Advocate. Crescent is playing an active role seeking to foster understanding between Australian Muslims and the broader Australian community. I’m looking forward to supporting this work.” As AFL Multicultural Ambassador, Houli has been heavily involved in introducing young people from diverse communities to the game through such initiatives as The Bachar Houli Cup, an inter-Islamic schools football competition involving 25 Islamic schools across Victoria, and the Bachar Houli Academy, established to nurture aspiring young Islamic footballers. Houli was also named an inaugural winner of the Muslim and non-Muslim Understanding Award granted by the University of South Australia and the Australia Day Council in late 2012.

Bendigo Bank made a decision to close the account of anti-mosque group Bendigo Bank made a decision to close the account of a protest group which is fighting plans to build the first Mosque in the Victorian city of Bendigo. Bendigo Bank informed the protest group of the account closure decision and stated that the bank only wants to do business with organisations that share its values. The bank statement mentioned that the bank values such as tolerance and inclusiveness are an important part of a strong community. It is worth mentioning here that the neighbours of the proposed Mosque project were interviewed and asked about their opinion regarding the construction of the Mosque. The vast majority said that they have no problem with that.

Racial Discrimination Act The RDA has been working well in its current form and supports multiculturalism and a harmonious community. The burden of proof bar for the existing legislation is already very difficult to reach, so any proposed watering down would be a serious problem. The current legislation has also been very useful in helping to remove hate speech in the online world. We would not like to see this removed. The proposition that people should be free to be bigots is not one which we support. There is no need to change the legislation other than to strengthen by adding religion into the protections. Freedom of speech is an important, but not absolute, right. It is limited for good reason in several areas, such as defamation, libel and sexual discrimination, as well as racial discrimination. Hate speech based on race, ethnicity or religion should be deplored and all members of society should be protected from it. For many of our community, wearing a hijab or other symbol of religious observance may make them feel like they are wearing a target for abuse. For effective freedom of religion, people should be able to practice their faith without fear, intolerance or vilification. Al Azhar University Al Azhar University is running Islamic Studies Scholarships. The program offers four Muslim students the opportunity to complete one year of study at the Muslim world’s first and most prestigious Islamic University in Cairo, Egypt.

Prison Chaplaincy Imam Training The Islamic Council of Victoria’s Prison Chaplaincy program trained 10 Turkish Imams from Diyanet Broadmeadows Mosque as part of building community support for Muslim prisoners across Victoria. The 10 Imams are now qualified to service 474 Muslim prisoners currently staying in the state’s 13 prisons. As always, I welcome any feedback on this article or any of the activities being undertaken by the ICV. Feel free to contact me via email at: admin@ icv.org.au

ICV General Manager Nail Aykan was the Master of Ceremony and gave the opening welcome, saying “It is a true honour to be able to present arguably the most successful prime minister of the republic of turkey and perhaps the most important muslim leader in the world today, Recep Tayyip Erdogan”. “We gather here in Broadmeadows, where Recep Tayyip Erdogan is no stranger to many, where he presented in person on two occasions, one before becoming prime minister in Jan 2000 and once as prime minister in Dec 2005 – and by popular demand we invited him back here today. “This is a pioneering first for us. We share today not a victory of a politician or a political party but a celebration respecting the will of the people. we come together after the conclusion of elections to unite as a community and afford the elected representatives the peace to govern for all. Times have surely changed. The people wanted a change. Recep Tayyip Erdogan represents that change”. In a 12 minute speech the Turkish PM said “from as far as Australia I would like to thank each and every one of you for your support and

prayers for our democracy and stability and for backing the will of the people and the ballot box. Right now I would have loved to be amongst you there in Melbourne to share your sincerity and excitement. In spite of the distance between us, believe me I feel that I am there amongst you in person” Further adding “to us there is no difference at all between our brothers living in Melbourne to those living in Syria, Palestine and Egypt. Today there is much pain and suffering being felt in both Syria and Egypt. We have been striving to relive the pain and suffering of almost 800,000 Syrians who have been forced to seek refuge in our country. Unfortunately as much as we provide safety and shelter for the Syrians and share the misery and plight of the Syrian and Egyptian peoples, there are some out there who are unhappy with our stance. However the bond of brotherhood amongst us has reached very high levels. Together we will all soon witness a major turning point in the progress of the will of the Muslim peoples around the world”. The ICV Vice President Mohamad Tabiaat spoke on behalf of the peak council, who spoke with so much passion and from the heart, his speech went viral on social media.

Mosque in Perth Victoria Police new cameras to catch phone use from 700m away VICTORIA Police has started using new traffic cameras to catch drivers who use hand held devices. Police memebrs operating those cameras can zoom in and snap offending drivers from 700m away, way long before motorists can spot the camera. Mobile phone users caught by the hi-tech traffic cameras will be hit with a $433 fine and get four demerit points. Assistant Commissioner Hill said police received the cameras last year, and officers were now sufficiently trained to use them on the roads..

Ummah Projects Perth City Musallah Association is looking for donations to help purchase a 193m2 land at 163581 Hay St, Perth for $1.4 million to build a mosque. The current
