New Muslim Medical Body Established in Queensland

In response to the rapid growth in the number of Muslim health professionals in Brisbane and across Queensland in recent years a  group of doctors, dentists and allied health professionals came together early this year to establish the Islamic Medical Association of Queensland (IMAQ).


Interim president of the fledgling association, Dr Mohammed Iqbal Sultan, told CCN that the primary objectives of IMAQ were to provide Muslim medical professionals with a forum to network with each other, and a platform from which ideas, projects and practices can be disseminated both within and outside of the Muslim community.


In addition to working within an Islamic framework, IMAQ will serve to embrace and support the strengths and talents of the many foreign and locally qualified graduates, as well as students in Queensland, many of whom come from a variety of different countries and cultures.


Dr Sultan and the interim IMAQ committee have issued an invitation to all Queensland health professionals to send in their contact details to admin@imaq.org.au as a first step to establishing a database and to join the organization as members.

Further details on the official launch of IMAQ will be posted shortly.


Membership application forms in Word or pdf format can be emailed to admin@imaq.org.au, posted to IMAQ, PO Box 243, Underwood, Qld 4119 or faxed to 07 5462 2355.

A new home grown Internet channel has just been launched called ISLAM TV AUSTRALIA: www.islamtv.com.au.

Australia’s Muslim Cameleers Exhibition in Melbourne

The cameleers' small Muslim community were a feature of Australian outback towns for more than 50 years from 1860s-1930s.


Explore the remarkable impact of Australia's Muslim cameleers in transforming central Australia.

This exhibition reveals the remarkable contribution which Australia’s first Muslim community, from Afghanistan and British India, made to the exploration and settlement of Australia’s arid interior.

Cameleers assisted all major expeditions into Australia’s uncharted interior starting with the Burke and Wills expedition in 1860 and have contributed significantly to Australia's economic and cultural development.

These Muslim pioneers provided the lifeblood for many inland settlements, isolated stations and mines, and forged communication routes through remote Australia.

The “brutal” Arm of the Victorian Police

AFIC press release

Commenting on the report in yesterdays Australian newspaper, Mr Ikebal Patel, President of Muslims Australia expressed dismay at the allegations of aggressive, disproportionate and apartheid style treatment metered out by certain police officer’s especially to African Australians. These incidents were reported in areas of high concentration of African background communities in Melbourne.

Mr Patel was especially concerned about the negative messages such behaviour sends out to the rest of the community. “ We are
working extremely hard in providing educational programs and induction courses on religion, culture and co-existence to police and other service providers. By and large our efforts and recommendations are heeded. However, we are very disappointed that some rogue police officer’s think they are police, judge and jury and allow their personal prejudice to interfere with professional policing.”

Mr Patel, urged Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Simon Overland to investigate these serious allegations and stamp out any acts of racism and prejudice on the part of serving police officers.

Mr Patel concluded, by saying Muslims Australia’s relationship with the police forces across Australia is excellent and we are proud of the cooperation and support police show when the community is confronted during difficult times. And it is for these reasons that a few rogue police officers should not be allowed to tarnish an otherwise fair and just police service.


The Op-Shop Update

By Janeth Deen

We have emptied our storage sheds due to the high cost of rental. For a short time only, we have rented a second shop in the Parkland Shopping Centre in order to sell some of the backlog of stock. We do not want to give the impression that we have two shops to trade from. InshAllah, we intend to keep the original shop to trade from.

It would be appreciated if any available volunteers could allocate some time to help us, even if it is one day a month. At present, Janeth and Wilma are the only two workers carrying out the running of the shop and Janeth has had to carry out the welfare work also.

Work involved in the shop is sorting and displaying goods, serving customers, cleaning the shop and welfare work which entails visiting those in need, assessing theirs needs, and fulfilling those needs, then following up on their welfare. We were thankful for help given us by Hindu and Sikh students who gave us four of their weekends to help us move the stock from the storage sheds. We also wish to acknowledge the fact that brother Hanif Deen provided his utility and fuel for us to move our stock out of the sheds.

We are urgently in need of a dining room table and six chairs, a lounge suite, a microware, a TV cabinet, TV and a blender for a family who are experiencing difficulties. This family is not eligible to source centrelink payments. The family has eleven children, six of whom are still at home. The mother has beeen traumatised by the effects of war in her home country, (she survived a gunshot wound through the face) and the father is seeking employment. They have migrated from New Zealand for health reasons and could not bring their furniture or personal effects with them due to the expense of transport. Some members of the family have medical problems. They will be grateful for the donation of goods requested.


Please contact me, Janeth Deen, on my mobile 0435 086 796.if you can assist this family in any way.

HARMONY DAY - Harmony Day at Southport Centrelink Offices on Friday 19 March. I was fortunate enough to address the Centrelink Staff regarding the role of our Mosque in a multi-cultural society. A warm welcome, indeed it was with a variety of food. Great thanks to the Centrelink Staff.

HIFZ GRADUATION JALSA – Yet again Qari Fidaur Rahman's amazes Queenslanders by producing more home grown Huffaz. Boys and Girls, who have memorised the entire Qur'an, will be having their graduation ceremony at Kuraby Masjid tonight, Masha Allah. The programme starts after Maghrib Salaat and light meals will be served thereafter.

CIQ MEETING – The Imams of Queensland will be meeting at Dara Masjid today (Sunday) as part of their ongoing concerns in the fulfilment of their duties as Imams.

EMBRACING ISLAM - Two people have emailed me expressing their wish to embrace Islam. However, I always encourage them to learn more about Islam and know what it entails before making a decision.

REVERT CLASSES THIS WEEK - We will be conducting classes this week and the next. Thereafter, classes will restart after the School holidays.

MCF - "Muslim Charitable Fund" invited over 20 Muslim organisations for their meeting last Sunday, but only 7 responded, which is very sad. The establishment of MCF was long needed here in Queensland and they are doing a wonderful job. I just wish that the organisations here should be more supportive to such organisations.

COMMUNITY FEEDBACK MEETING - "Community Feed Back Meeting" will take place at the Gold Coast Masjid on the 28th March 2010 with regard to "The Next Ten Years and Beyond" conference. Invitations are being sent out to participants, insha Allah.

The Australian Journey: Muslim Communities - DIAC publication

Adapted from Australian Journey - Muslim communities


The Australian Journey – Muslim communities, a DIAC publication, is characterised by contributions of Muslims from all over the world who have made Australia home.


In this, and following issues of CCN, we highlight one of the successful Muslims in Australia from the report and their thoughts about what it means to be both a Muslim and an Australian.

Eisha Saleh and Kathlene Fry 


Muslims in Australia wear a wide variety of dress, many reflecting their countries of origin.


An increasing number of young entrepreneurs are establishing themselves with new and innovative clothing styles that fuse the Islamic and Western worlds.

Baraka Women is one Australian fashion house that prides itself on maintaining modest Muslim traditions but in contemporary and beautiful styling.


We are passionate about ‘Australian Made’. We have a fantastic fashion industry here producing some of the world’s best things … we are proud to be able to tap into it. Running a successful business here can be done and our aim is to educate the younger generation about the benefits. Anyone has access; really the sky is the limit.

 Workers' jihad at Islamic website


Staff at IslamOnline have gone on strike. But is it about workers' rights, religious principles or national rivalries?


Islamic advice websites aren't the first thing that spring to mind when talking of strikes, sit-ins and workers' occupations, but if there's any proof needed that Egypt's extraordinary wave of industrial action is reaching every corner of the nation, then today's drama at IslamOnline.net fits the bill.

With more than 120,000 hits a day and a global reach that extends through several languages, IslamOnline is one of the biggest and most influential Muslim websites in the world. From Baghdad to Basildon, Muslims use it as a key source of scholarly advice on everything from impotency to the insurgency in Iraq.

So the question of who owns and controls the site is a vitally important one. And that's the question being wrestled over today, after hundreds of staff walked out in protest over what they say is an attempt by conservatives in the Gulf to hijack the site and force it to pursue a more traditional and hardline agenda.

Tension had been simmering for months between the website's Cairo-based editorial offices and the managers in Doha, whose plan this week to fire many of the 350 employees in Egypt led to an all-night occupation of the company's offices, which was still continuing at the time of writing.

 Cartoonist lampoons niqab, angers Muslims in Canada


A controversial cartoon in a Montreal newspaper at the weekend has further fuelled the niqab controversy and angered Muslims in Canada.

The controversy, which was sparked by a Muslim woman's refusal in November to remove her veil in her French language class in Montreal, has been further inflamed by the controversial cartoon in the Montreal Gazette at the weekend. In the cartoon, a Muslim woman is depicted in niqab from top to toes, with the slit space for her eyes shown in jail bars and a lock.

Defending it, the cartoonist Terry Mosher said he drew it to oppose the Muslim woman's argument in favour of the veil and encourage debate over the issue.

'In the (Montreal) Gazette this morning, there is actually an editorial in support of the woman, and yet my cartoon is against it. So that is part of the discussion and I think that's a very healthy thing,'' the cartoonist told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.


The controversy erupted after the Muslim woman Naima Atef Amed, a mother of three who is a new immigrant to Canada, filed a petition with the human rights commission in Quebec province for violations of her religious rights two weeks ago.

But the director of the college - CEGEP de Saint-Laurent - in Montreal said they tried to accommodate the woman's demands by allowing her to wear the niqab, giving her the front seat and letting her make her presentations from the rear of the classroom with her back to the class so that boys male students didn't see her.

Matters came to a head when the woman asked male students to move away from her and refused to sit with them around a U-table for conversation skill development classes.

 Indian atheist embraces Islam

RIYADH: A well-known Indian psychotherapist embraced Islam on Thursday.

Dr. Periyadarshan, who has changed his name to Abdullah, told Arab News Friday that Islam is the only religion in the world that follows a book directly revealed from God.

He said that as a student of comparative religions he believes books of other faiths have not been directly revealed to mankind from God. He said the Holy Qur’an is still in the same format and style as it was revealed to the Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) from Almighty Allah.

Dr. Abdullah is a visiting professor at the University of California in Los Angeles.

He also acted in the famous Tamil film “Karuthamma” about the killing of newborn baby girls in some remote villages in India. The production received national award from the Indian government.

“I was well known in India for my atheist theology and later I became to realize that religion is the only way out for human beings both in this world as well as in the hereafter,” he said.

Dr. Abdullah will be performing Umrah on Saturday on his first visit to the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah.

Interpreter of Maladies

Jhumpa Lahiri




Navigating between the Indian traditions they've inherited and the baffling new world, the characters in Jhumpa Lahiri's elegant, touching stories seek love beyond the barriers of culture and generations.


In "A Temporary Matter," published in The New Yorker, a young Indian-American couple faces the heartbreak of a stillborn birth while their Boston neighbourhood copes with a nightly blackout.


In the title story, an interpreter guides an American family through the India of their ancestors and hears an astonishing confession.



Lahiri writes with deft cultural insight reminiscent of Anita Desai and a nuanced depth that recalls Mavis Gallant.


She is an important and powerful new voice.

Kareema's Keep Fit Q&A Column



Q: Dear Kareema, I'm entering the annual Creswalk again this year and would love to improve on my finishing-time.

I haven't really done much about it over the last 3 years and I really want to concentrate on getting a better outcome this year.

What can I do to make a difference or what do you suggest I try in order to get a better result?



A: The best thing to do is start preparing yourself now for race day!


The earlier you start your training regime, the better.


I suggest you have a look at what you did in the past during the weeks leading up to the race / walk.


Increase the time you would spend exercising by 5 or 10mins whenever you can.


Include interval training sessions (fast and slow pace) as part of your regime.


Try strength training if it's not something you would have done in the past, and increase your intencity levels.


Remember that stretching and a healthy diet is just as important as everything else you're doing to prepare your body for race day.


The more you vary your workouts, the better for you.

Your muscles won't become accustomed to doing the same thing over and over...

Keep your eye on this column as well, I will guide readers through a six week pre-race program (for all fitness levels)!


If you start your program today, you can incorporate some of my program into what you would already be doing and have a great head-start!

Always think positive and stay motivated!


Remember, whatever the outcome on the day - the most important is that you did your absolute best and had fun while doing it!! N-JOY...
