 Newsletter 0418




Holland Park Mosque, in Brisbane, has secured the purchase of the property next door, a total of 1900 square metres which includes a car park, double storey hall, double story church and two double storey houses. The Salvation Army property has been negotiated at a total cost of $2 million to be paid by the end of this year.

With the $200 000 deposit having been paid and pledges coming in, there is an amount of $1,609,000 still to be raised.

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and we cannot let it pass," a spokesperson for the Islamic Society of Holland Park told CCN.


The contract to purchase the property has gone unconditional and the Society is making every effort to meet its financial obligations with the help of the community in the 6 weeks remaining.


There are three ways of contributing financially:


1. An immediate donation of any amount

2. A pledge of a period payment through a debit order

3. An interest-free load payable by the Society by 30 December 2013


"If we don't purchase it, the Salvation Army are talking about developing the property by building units. This would seriously curtail any future plans for Holland Park. That is why it is so important to gather the funds to purchase the property. Failure is not an option."

Over 150 guests attended the Abrahamic Faiths Concert at the Multi Faith Centre at Griffith University during the week.

It was the Jewish turn to MC the concert and Gail Paratz welcomed the guests and also delivered the Welcome to Country

The concert began with two Indonesian members of the Australian International Islamic College Choir who recited verses from the Quran in Arabic with a slide show to explain the verses.

Tsoof Baras and Cantor David Bently sang the Jewish songs and The St Andrew's Lutheren Choir represented the Christians.

The last presenter was Sheikh Ahmad Ghazaleh who read verses from the Quran and also gave their translation in English. Sheikh Ghazaleh also entertained the audience with jokes and stories adding to his usual repertoire of nasheeds.

For the Muslims,  Haje Sultan Deen provided the curry and rice for supper, the Christians provided the fruit platters and the Jews provided sweets.

A great time was had by all as guests of different faiths mingled for supper.

A Rohingya Information Session was held last Sunday at the Australian Islamic International College (Durack) to help raise awareness of the Rohingya people who have been settling in the Brisbane community since 2007.

According to UNHCR the Rohingya are one of the most persecuted minorities in the world. Rohingyas have suffered years of human rights violations in Burma.


It was also an occasion to celebrate Eid, Rohingya-style and the 250 Muslim and non-Muslim guests heard members of the community share some of their stories over a fabulous spicy Rohingya dinner.

Sergeant Jim Bellos, Cultural Liaison Officer with the QPS, was amongst the Queensland finalists in the Australia's Local Hero category for his work with the many communities in the state.


Each year Australia celebrates the achievement and contribution of eminent Australians through the Australian of the Year Awards by profiling leading citizens who are role models. "They inspire us through their achievements and challenge us to make our own contribution to creating a better Australia."


The Awards operates at two levels - state/territory and national. State and territory selection committees select four finalists for each award category, with one of these finalists becoming the state/territory award recipient. State/territory award recipients then become the national finalists for the awards.

The prestigious year round program culminates in the announcement of the national award recipients in Canberra on Australia Day Eve.

There are over 1.6 billion Muslims in the world today, making up approximately 23% of the world's population, or more than one-fifth of mankind.


The Muslim500 publication is part of an annual series that provides a window into the movers and shakers of the Muslim world. It gives valuable insight into the different ways that Muslims impact the world, and also shows the diversity of how people are living as Muslims today.

The 2011 Muslim500 lists the world's most influential Muslims who have impacted on their community, or on behalf of their community. Influence is: any person who has the power (be

\it cultural, ideological, financial, political or otherwise) to make a change that will have a significant impact on the Muslim World. The impact can be either positive or negative. The influence can be of a religious scholar directly addressing Muslims and influencing their beliefs, ideas and behaviour, or it can be of a ruler shaping the socio-economic factors within which people live their lives, or of artists forming popular culture.

Each week, CCN publishes a personality selected from the list:


No. 46

H.H. Dr Syedna Mohammad Burhannuddin Saheb
The 52nd Da‘i l-Mutlaq of the Dawoodi Bohras


Country: India

Born: 6 March 1915 (age 96)
Source of Influence: Administrative
Influence: 1 million Dawoodi Bohras in the world
School of Thought: Traditional Ismaili Shi‘a, Dawoodi Bohra

Mohammad Burhanuddin Saheb is the leader of the Dawoodi Bohra community, which stems from the Ismaili Shi‘a sect of Islam. As leader of  the Bohras, he has been influential  in the fields of  education and the development of community  institutions  in Mumbai, India and across the globe.


Absolute  Missionary

 Saheb was appointed Da‘i of the Dawoodi Bohras  by his  father who was the previous Da‘i l-Mutlaq, or absolute  missionary, and succeeded him at the age of 53. Originating  from Yemen but centrally based in India, the Dawoodis  are the  main branch of the Bohras, a Musta’li sub-sect  of Isma‘ilism.  Over 180,000 members from all parts of  India and the world  gathered in the Island city of Mumbai  to attend Ashara  Mubaraka, the ten-day Moharram  discourses of Saheb held in  December 2010. In June 2011,  soon after his 100th birthday  (as per the hijri calendar)  the ailing Burhanuddin appointed  his second son Syedi  Mufaddal Saifuddin as his successor.


Community Development

Mohammad Burhanuddin Saheb has  been widely recognized  by governmental and non- governmental  organizations for promoting peace in the world.  He is noted for  the construction of numerous mosques,  mausoleums, and community structures for the Dawoodi Bohras in  various parts of the world and particularly in Yemen.

Islamophobes Downfall Delights US Muslims       


West has once described Islam as a “totalitarian theocratic political ideology” that is a “very vile and very vicious enemy”

USA: American Muslims have hailed the downfall of candidates known for their hostile tone against the sizable minority and their religion in Congressional elections this week.

"These encouraging results clearly show that mainstream Americans reject anti-Muslim bigotry by candidates for public office and will demonstrate that rejection at the polls," Nihad Awad, National Executive Director of the umbrella Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said.


Congressional election on Tuesday, November 6, saw the fall of candidates known for their hostile rhetoric against Muslims.

Statue tribute to WW2 British-Indian agent 

Noor Inayat Khan

UK: BBC News reports that a statue is to be installed in central London as a tribute to an Indian Muslim woman, Noor Inayat Khan, who worked as a spy in France during WW2, aiding the war effort for the allied powers. She was tortured by the Gestapo and shot dead by the Germans in 1944. The unveiling of a monument erected in her memory comes days before Armistice Day on Sunday 11th November.


Ms Khan was posthumously awarded the George Cross for her work in France and for revealing nothing of use to her interrogators despite being tortured by the Gestapo for 10 months.

“Although she carried a passport of an imperial subject, she had no innate loyalty to Britain. But she did have a strong aversion to fascism.

“A fluent French speaker, Ms Khan joined Britain's sabotage force, the Special Operations Executive (SOE), and became the first female radio operator sent into France in 1943, with the famous instruction to "set Europe ablaze".

“The role was so dangerous that she arrived in Paris with a life expectancy of just six weeks.”

CCN Readers' Book Club: You are what you read!

This week CCN's Editor-in-Chief recommends



George Megalogenis


GEORGE Megalogenis introduces his book with a bold claim: ''What if we are 'the last best hope on Earth' … The nation that reflects the best of the world back to it?'' This claim is based almost entirely on superior management of the economy during the past 40 years, a ''pragmatic version of deregulation''.

The bulk of The Australian Moment, however, is a detailed and rather economist account of mainstream politics during the past 40 years. Megalogenis is one of the country's sanest political journalists, with a genuine ability to analyse without the preconceived biases of many of his stablemates. But in the end his views reflect the dominant consensus of the chattering classes: Hawke is the best post-Menzies leader because he led the way in deregulating the economy.

Megalogenis hints that there were - and remain - costs to deregulation, usually through rather vague claims about a growing selfishness of Australian culture. What is missing is the link between the government policies he admires and the growing inequality about which he professes some unease, and which Wayne Swan has recently tried to introduce into political debate.

Q: How do I protect my tomatoes from fruit-fly?


A: This works like a dream. All you need is a brown paper-bag and a peg. Do not use a plastic bag. Simply cover the cluster of tomatoes when very small (marble size) Only remove the bag to inspect the fruit occasionally. You will be amazed at the flawless quality once the tomatoes are ripe. This technique works equally well with dodhi, mango and grapes.

Q: Dear Kareema, I have a shoulder injury but really do not want to stop exercising. Any suggestions?

A: Our shoulders are highly mobile joints which means it is prone to injury through repetitive exercises or weight training.


Try to avoid activities with the arms above the shoulders until it settles.


You can safely maintain cardiovascular fitness with stationary bikes, treadmills, heading for the pool, or just simply walking. Be sure to visit your doctor and have it checked out.

Hashim Amla was the big attraction when he was the opening batsman at a charity match in Sharjah.


Anxious to impress, the fast bowler from a local club keyed himself up to put every thing into his first ball.


He ran up and hurled down a screamer which took out the off stump

'No ball,' called Jallaluddin the umpire and, in so doing, invited much protestation and abuse from the bowler.


But Jallaluddin would have none of it.

'Calm down, you idiot. They've come to see him bat, 'not you bowl !'

If any do seek for glory and power, - to Allah belong all glory and power. To Him mount up (all) Words of Purity: it is He Who exalts each deed of righteousness. Those that lay plots of evil, - for them is a terrible penalty; and the plotting of such will be void (of result). 

Surah Fatir 35:10
