Arab Film Festival in Brisbane



The Arab Film Festival is touring across Australia again this year, bringing to DENDY Portside a selection of Arab films to share with Brisbane audiences.

Action-packed drama, documentary, thrillers, animation and shorts – once again the Festival program is packed with fresh stories from across the Arab world.

The Arab Film Festival Australia (AFFA) aims to showcase stories emerging from diverse Arabic speaking cultures to all Australian audiences that reflect the complexity and diversity of Arab experiences. Furthermore the aim is to address the (mis)representations of Arab culture through film by providing critical spaces and give exposure to alternative representations of Arab culture, Arab commentary and self-representation.

Nothing else has the power to immerse you in another place quite the way cinema can and this festival will give you the inside story on the contemporary Arab world. Walk the streets with these filmmakers, follow the stories of people from Egypt, UAE, Lebanon, Dubai, Kuwait, Palestine, Bahrain, Morocco, Algeria, Iraq and Australia. Unravel the huge themes and poignant human struggles,

For two nights only, 30th and 31st of July, Dendy Portside will be proudly hosting the Arab Film Festival 2010.


See www.arabfilmfestival.com.au for details of the movies on show.

The QMHSoc Update

Janeth Deen 

The Queensland Muslim Historical Society Inc. (QMHSoc) was contacted by the Mt Gravatt District Community Centre Inc. to write a script on the history of the first five Muslim families in Mt. Gravatt. The Mt Gravatt District Community Centre Inc applied for and received funding to produce a video on the early Muslims in Mt Gravatt. It will only be a thirty minute video designed to be shown as a documentary for television.

QMHSoc has successfully completed its part of the project. This involved writing the script and planning the video. In order to do this, it needed the support of the Imam at Holland Park, one representative of each of the early Muslim families which will be featured, the local member for the Wishart ward and a few other people. Islamic music was also provided by Ahmad Abu Ghazaleh.

Also featured in the video will be the Muslim section of the Mt Gravatt Cemetery and the Mt Gravatt State School which was the only school in the area and was attended by children of the early Muslim families.

The video, which is presently being edited, took two months to write, turn into a script, get all the people involved in the video together and then do the actual filming. InshaAllah, the video will be launched on the 18 August at 10 am in a hall at the Mt Gravatt Showgrounds. Invitations will soon be sent out by the Mt Gravatt District Community Centre for the launch.

The whole project focused only on the first families who settled in the Mt Gravatt area, landmarks of importance to Muslims in the Mt Gravatt area and seniors.

Questions asked in the video were "How did the White Australia Policy impact on Muslims at the time? What did the Muslims do to support each other and the community? Why was the mosque so important? What is the future of Muslims in Mt Gravatt?"

The Queensland Muslim Historical Sociey Inc were delighted to work on this project as the video will be distributed to libraries and will be on sale to the public. It will give some focus on the role Muslims have played in Brisbane and explain some of the difficulties faced by the early Muslims in adapting to Western culture under the White Australia Policy. All the early families could not be mentioned as the time allocated for the project was short.

The Queensland Muslim Historical Society Inc. has been established to record the history of Muslims and their activities in Queensland. It is up to the Muslim community to provide information for them to record this history. There is still much to be written. The Society needs family history from all the different nationalities, Muslim business organisations, sporting groups, mosques, etc. The QMHSoc will be happy to to write your history to be recorded for future generations. This has long been an overlooked need and has become one of the main objectives of the Society.


SMS Notifications - Ramadhan and Eid ul Fitr

The Australian National Crescent Sighting Coordination Centre (ANCSCC) will be providing both LIVE updates online as well as a national SMS notification of the results of crescent sighting for the upcoming lunar month of Ramadhan as well as Shawwal. The 1st day of Ramadhan effects the commencement of fasting, and the 1st day of Shawwal effects the end of fasting and establishes the day of ‘Eid ul-Fitr.

ANCSCC is the only nationally coordinated effort in Australia, with Scholars for on-time advice and resolution of all sighting claims, which undertakes monthly crescent observation. Physical sighting of the crescent is the only Shar’i and scientifically acceptable method available to establish the Islamic lunar months.

To register your mobile number for SMS notification of the results of crescent observation (and which day to start and end fasting), please go to http://crescentwatch-australia.alghazzali.org and enter your mobile number.

To check LIVE updates for the results of crescent observation online, go to http://crescentwatch-australia.alghazzali.org. Make sure you refresh the browser regularly to update your webpage with new information. This service is also available via your Twitter account- just update your setting to include ANCSCC on your settings!

Celebrating the Record-breaking Exhibition

UK: More than 25 UK-based Arab Ambassadors and VIPs attended a special gala reception at London’s Science Museum on Thursday the 24th of June to celebrate the record-breaking run of the 1001 Inventions exhibition.

Since launching in January 2010 in London – the first venue on the global tour – 1001 Inventions has broken all known records with more than 400,000 visitors during the 6-month run in Britain’s capital city.

In attendance at the gala event, which marks the end of the exhibition’s residency in London, were representatives from almost a dozen Arab nations, including Lebanon, Algeria, Tunisia, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. Hosts for the evening were Prof. Salim Al-Hassani, founder and chairman of 1001 Inventions, and Chris Doyle who is Director of the Council for Arab-British Understanding (CAABU).

Speaking about the event, Prof. Al-Hassani said: “I am honoured to have hosted so many important dignitaries from the Arab world and we are looking forward to sending an Arabic version of the exhibition to the Middle East in the coming year.

For now though, our next great milestone will be the launch of our exhibition in the historic city of Istanbul mid-August 2010.”
The exhibition also played host to Prof. Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu (pictured), Secretary General of OIC, who expressed great enthusiasm for the project - a sentiment shared by the Arab Ambassadors and VIPs at the gala event, many of whom expressed a desire to bring the 1001 Inventions initiative to their home territories.

Liberal Democrat politician and academic Jonathan Fryer, who attended the event, said he was “delighted” by the exhibition and its content. “Many people in the West are blissfully unaware of how much modern civilization owes to Arab scientists, inventors and thinkers. It’s not just that the Arabs saved much of classical Greek and Roman writings and knowledge during the European Dark Ages:


From Constantinople to Baghdad, there was a ferment of activity and creativity, which is documented and conveyed in a highly entertaining way in this magnificent exhibition, supported by the Jameel Foundation.”

The 1001 Inventions exhibition completed its residency at London’s Science Museum on the 30th of June 2010. The next venue on the five-year global tour will be Istanbul, following which the exhibition moves on to North America



CCN's London-based correspondent, Adam Stewart, wrote:


My family and I have been to 1001 Inventions twice, and we have even brought our Brisbane-based visitors to the exhibition as part of a welcome tour of London. Part of the exhibition includes the award winning 13 minute film, entitled “1001 Inventions and the Library of Secrets” which has won 20 awards including the coveted “Grand Winner for Best Film” at the 53rd New York Film Festivals on 3rd May 2010. The video starring Sir Ben Kingsley, is now available on youtube.



French entrepreneur offers to pay veil fines 

A French businessman is offering to sell properties to help Muslim women pay any fines that they may receive for wearing the full veil in public if a law is voted through France's Parliament.

Lawmakers will vote on the bill on Tuesday, which would see women fined 150 euros if they wear the full veil, known as the burqa or niqab, in public places.

In a statement published in several newspapers, Rachid Nekkaz, who tried to stand in the presidential elections in 2007, said he would use proceeds from property sales for a 1 million euro fund to help women pay any fines.

France, home to the Europe's largest Muslim minority with about 5 million Muslims, is the second country after Belgium to want to ban the veil on its own soil.

Nekkaz is setting up an association, 'Hands off my Constitution', which he said viewed banning the veil in the street as unconstitutional.

Critics also see the bill as difficult to enforce and say only a tiny minority of Muslim women wear the full veil and that the legislation is a step toward tighter restraints on individual freedom.

Supporters of the ban argue that wearing garments which hide women's faces violates the ideals of secularism and equality.

The country already bans Muslim head scarves and other religious symbols from schools and voters have indicated support for a ban of the full veil.

The government is expecting broad support for the bill after opposition Socialists said they would not hinder its adoption.

Malaysia Swoons Over Hottest Imam Reality Search


Pregnant Muslim women who fast during Ramadan are likely to have smaller babies who are more prone to learning disabilities, a new study has found.

Researchers from the U.S said this trend was most marked if mothers-to-be fasted early on in their pregnancy and during the summer when longer days meant they went more hours without food.

They also found that the women were 10 per cent less likely to give birth to a boy if they had fasted.

They're young, tall-ish, dark and handsome and they've captured the hearts of Malyasian TV viewers mesmerized by their quest to be declared the nation's hottest up-and-coming imam.


Contestants on the new reality show Young Imam are judged by one man— the former grand mufti of Malaysia's national mosque—and are ranked by their knowledge of Islamic theory, the quality of their voices citing Koran verses and intellectual feats.


Their reward? A university scholarship, a job leading prayers at a Kuala Lumpur mosque and a trip to Mecca to perform the Haj pilgrimage.

The show is an odd mix of Hollywood razz matazz and ancient religion as the nation juggles the demands of faith and the modern world.


"These young imams are modern, and we need that. Muslims are very progressive," one fan tells the Wall Street Journal. "After 9/11, it's good for us to show the true picture of Islam."


Thought the program has the look of Survivor meets Britain's Got Talent, the feats are unique. In one episode, contestants had to prepare unclaimed corpses for burial—an essential rite in Islam. "It's a tough contest, but if we want to be imams and lead our community, we should expect to face difficult challenges any time, any place," declared one brash contender.

PAKISTAN: A cleaner will be rewarded for his remarkable honesty after he handed in $AUD51,500 worth of cash which he discovered in a Pakistan hotel room.

Hotel employee Essa Khan, 51, found the wad of $100 notes left in a safety deposit box in the room of a Japanese NGO worker at the Serena hotel in Gilgit, Pakistan.

The father-of-five, who earns about 21,000 rupees ($AUD277) per month, told the BBC he hoped his honesty would portray Pakistan in a positive light after allegations of Government corruption and incidences of state terrorism.

He said that he never considered keeping the money.

Hotel manager Rajid Uddin said the guest had been relieved when the cash was returned.

"He was naturally very worried as he wasn't able to figure out where he had lost the money," he said.

Mr Uddin also told the BBC that there had been similar instances where lost items had been returned, but none "of this magnitude".

The Age reported Mr Khan has shown that honesty is the best policy, as the governor of Punjab has named him a 'national hero' and honour him in a special ceremony.

Salaams CCN,

I am writing to let you know about my effort to raise funds for a very worthwhile UK charity and hoping for your support and assistance.

I ran 10km on Sunday (British 10km run), on a warm London summers day, in order to raise money for Muslim Youth Helpline, a charity which provides a sounding board for the many, many young Muslims who call everyday. Children with a variety of issues and for many, with nowhere else to turn. This sort of support is so important for today's youth.

MYH also provides other community support services, such as their prisoner support.

I am about half way to reaching my fundraising target but really need some help. I would very much appreciate some publicity with my link to where funds cam be safely donated. With the strength of the Aussie dollar, I should be there in no time!

Many thanks and please continue all your good work.

Ma salaam

Walking is good for you

Walking at a comfortable speed improves heart-lung function and is good for general fitness.

If you walk regularly you tend to:

. feel more confident, happy and relaxed
. control your weight better
. have healthier blood cholesterol level
. have lower blood pressure
. have stronger bones (less osteoporosis)
. be less likely to have a heart attack
. recover better from a heart attack
. be less likely to have a stroke
. be less likely to develop diabetes in middle age


How often and how hard?
Just a short comfortable walk every day will give you great health benefits.

How often? Try to walk every day. Ideally adults should get a total of 30 minutes or more of moderate exercise - like walking - on most (preferably all) days of the week. The more exercise you can do the better - providing you follow the steps outlined in this guide.

How hard? Find the level that suits you best. You should still be able to talk (or whistle) comfortably as you walk.

Getting started and staying motivated
Once you get started, you'll realise how enjoyable and relaxing walking can be.

Walking is a great social activity - you can walk with a friend or join a club. Or you might prefer the quiet of a solitary walk. Whatever you do, the aim is for comfort and enjoyment while keeping active.

Mula Nasruddin's son came home from school and tells him he had been given a part in the school play.

"Wonderful," replies Mula Nasruddin, "what part is it?"

The boy says, "I play the part of the Muslim husband."

Mula Nasruddin scowls and says, "Go back and tell your teacher you want a speaking part."
