Muslims in Toowoomba celebrated Eidul Fitr on Friday, 9 August 2013. The Islamic Society of Toowoomba organised the event in a rented Hall in the city which was an aircraft hangar in the past.

This year largest number of Muslims participated in the Eid prayers in spite of very cold morning. An estimated 1000 men, women and children joined the end of Ramadan celebration.

Hafeez Abdulateef Al-Ammar led the Eid Prayers. He also led the Tarawi prayers during Ramadan.

President of the Islamic Society of Toowoomba, Professor Shahjahan Khan thanked everyone who provided the free Iftar and dinner at the Islamic Centre in the month of Ramadan, and who help clean the Centre on a regular basis.


He also explained the need for the ongoing commitment and support of the local Muslims to cover the regular expenses of the Masjid once possession of the contracted property is completed upon settlement.

Many were looking forward to the next Eidul Fitr to be performed in the proposed first Masjid in Toowoomba.

Almost $3000 was raised for the Masjid project from the Eid gathering. The Islamic Society of Toowoomba provided Eid gifts (toys) to over 130 children.

Awards were also distributed to winners of Qur’an Competition in various categories.

The holy month of Ramadan has been a time of community awareness and spiritual awakening. The Muslim Charitable Foundation has played its usual role of coming to the assistance of people in need

This year has been special to Muslim Charitable Foundation as other organisations and individuals rendered their assistance through Muslim Charitable Foundation.

The Al-Ghazali Foundation supplied a large quantity of blankets, and the family of Ferhaad Osman supplied forty hampers (all packed by the Osman family) and blankets to be distributed to the needy through MCF. What a wonderful feeling it has been to assist in placing food on the table for those who have very little. May Allah reward those who have helped in this important task.


The Muslim Charitable Foundation has collected $71,000 of the target of $140 000 during Ramadan for the purchase of disability aids to be sent to Syria in conjunction with Muslim Aid Australia. The Syrian nation is in need and we urge donors to contribute generously by using the following account:

The Muslim Charitable Foundation Emergency Account; Bank of Queensland; BSB 124 155, A/C Number 2089 7395. The people of Syria need all the help they can get!!

The Muslim Charitable Foundation has been in operation for four years now and has played a vital role aiding of the needy. MCF relies totally on donated funds to continue helping the sick, the disabled, elderly, widowed, single parents, the out- of- work familes, migrants, refugees and all who are in need of assistance. As to date, we have not been assisted with grants from any level of government. We totally rely on the community support. We urge you to help us help those in need.

As we approach the end of Ramadaan, let us take full advantage to increase our prayers and charity. Also be mindful of the Fitrah that has to be paid before Eid Salaah. Our banking details are:

Fitrah A/C Bank of Qld BSB 124 155 A/C No 2096 3614
Zakat A/C Bank of Qld BSB 124 155 A/C No 20897312
Interest A/C Bank of Qld BSB 124 155 A/C No 20897385
General A/C Bank of Qld BSB 124 155 A/C No 20897392

The Members of the Muslim Charitable Foundation wish to say JazakAllah Khair for the support that we have received since its inception.

May Allah grant all your wishes, reward all your sacrifices, and reward with the best in this world and the Hereafter.
Eid Mubarak

The Prime Minister of Islam has defended his country’s views and launched an attack of his own, in response to criticism from One Nation candidate Stephanie Banister yesterday.


In a statement last night the Islam PM said, “I don’t oppose One Nation as a religion. But I do feel their laws should not be welcome here”.


He added that he, and the Muslim faithful within his country, found Ms Banister’s attacks on Islam an insult to The Buddha.


Less than two per-cent of Australians were able to follow what Ms Banister was on about.

Banister has since said her original comments were taken out of context, “Unfortunately, they’ve completely twisted all my words and made me out to be a stand-up criminal”. Comedians around the country agreed.


For more political satire, follow The Shovel on Facebook and Twitter.


BREAKING NEWS! One Nation candidate quits election race


THE One Nation candidate ridiculed after referring to Islam as a country in a television interview has withdrawn from the election campaign.

Stephanie Banister, 27, was running for the seat of Rankin in Queensland but One Nation leader Jim Savage told reporters on Saturday Ms Banister has decided to withdraw following the fallout from her interview with the Seven Network.

During the interview, which Mr Savage says was misrepresentative, Ms Banister referred to Islam as country as well as referring to the Koran as "haram" and saying the national disability insurance scheme was "working at the moment", when it does not begin until 2016.

"She continues to have the full support of the One Nation executive, and contrary to reports on the media last night and in the newspapers today, Stephanie has not been disendorsed and will not be disendorsed," Mr Savage said.

"However, due to the threats against Stephanie's family, herself, her children, the abuse she's copped and the enormous pressure she's been put under, Stephanie has decided she wants to withdraw from the candidacy for the seat of Rankin. We have accepted it with regret."

Ms Banister had only been in politics for 48 hours at the time of the interview and made a short statement alongside Mr Savage but wasn't allowed to answer any questions on Saturday.

"With the way Channel Seven edited my interview, I was left quite the fool," Ms Banister said.
"I'd like to apologise to One Nation, to my friends and family, for any embarrassment this has brought to them."

Mr Savage said it was his responsibility such a novice candidate had been allowed to conduct an interview without appropriate preparation but also claimed Channel Seven had unfairly targeted Ms Banister.

He said it was unclear at this stage if One Nation would nominate a replacement candidate for Rankin with the deadline for nominations on Thursday.

Tony Abbott declined Kevin Rudd's invitation to debate him on the first night of the 2013 election campaign.


Instead, the Opposition Leader attended an Iftar dinner in western Sydney, to mark the breaking of the day-long fast during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.


Much of Australia's 475,000-strong Islamic community lives in a cluster of seats in western Sydney, which could be crucial to the outcome of the election.


Sociologist Andrew Jakubowicz of the University of Technology, Sydney, is an expert in the politics of Australia's multicultural communities and discusses the issue on Radio National.

Mosques in Brisbane and Gold Coast, especially the Darul Uloom, Darra, Kuraby, Holland Park, Bald Hills, Gold Coast, Wollongong and West End contributed around $190,000 out of around $350,000 donations received in the month of Ramadhan.

The total donation received up until Eid day (9 August) was $590,000 (about 64% of the target). The shortfall at this stage is $335,000.

The Eid gathering in Toowoomba contributed about $3000.

The next fundraising strategy meeting will be held in the Islamic College of Brisbane in the middle of this week to finalise the proposed dinner and auction programs to be held on Saturday, 14 September 2013.

A single ticket for the dinner will be $35 and a table of ten, $300. Tickets will be on sale very soon, and possibly as soon as Friday..

A/Professor Mohamed Abdalla and Imam Uzair Akbar will be speakers of the night.

Dear Editor,

I refer to your article in CCN issue No. 455 on One Nation candidate Mike Holt’s concerns of Halaal Food in supermarkets.

I wonder if Mr. Holt realises that he has been eating Halaal food since the day he was born. I mean, the Milk is Halaal, most of the Baby Food is Halaal, most of the Baby Cereal is Halaal, most of the everyday biscuits are Halaal, most of the cakes are Halaal, the Baked Beans are Halaal, most of the Bread is Halaal, the soap is Halaal, the Shampoo is Halaal, the fish is Halaal, ………………… and I can go on and on. Just because the product may not have a Halaal label on does not mean it is not Halaal.

I think what Mr. Holt needs to learn is what Halaal is. If I said to him Halaal is similar to Kosher, would that make a difference? Or does Mr. Holt think that Halaal is something that is added (like an ingredient) in the product.

Mr. Holt needs to ask himself what is the benefit of Halaal?
1. It makes it easier not only for Muslims but maybe also the Jews and anyone else to identify what is Halaal (Kosher)
2. This encourages tourism which brings into the country much needed revenue.
3. This has brought in much needed revenue from our exports.

So, remove the Halaal label and the Muslims do not loose. Rather Australia loses. The Muslims will always identify which is Halaal and suitable for them to consume whether it has a Halaal label or not. That’s what Muslims have been doing before the introduction of a mere Label.

I wonder if Mr. Holt will now stop eating everything because lots of products without the Halaal label are Halaal.

Name withheld on request.

Dear CCN Readers

Eid Mubarak

I trust that every one of the Muslim faith had a spiritually rewarding Holy month of Ramadan.

Thank you to all who invited my wife and I to many Iftars and Eid celebrations. Your hospitality was both welcoming and warm.

Ideas Arabia launches Saudi TV channel for women


SAUDI ARABIA: On Thursday, July 25th, 2013, in a ceremony broadcast by several regional TV and radio channels, the foundation stone for Al-Mrah [Arabic for the woman], the first satellite TV channel for women in Saudi Arabia, was laid.

Abdullah Al-Nawazi, chairman of Ideas Arabia Limited, which created the new network and is owned by Saudi businessman Sheikh Yusuf bin Awad Al-Ahmadi, stated that the channel aims to “highlight the skills, traditions, culture, education, Islamic thought and problems facing Arab women in general and Saudi women in particular.” Riyadh bin Kamal Najam, president of Saudi Arabia’s General Authority for Audio and Visual Media, also said that the channel will “help in removing some stereotypes about Saudi women.”

In a region where satellite TV channels have consistently multiplied over the years, this is not the first network devoted to women nor is it the first all-veiled women’s channel, which was launched in Egypt almost a year ago.

It is, however, the first channel dedicated to Saudi women.

News reports on the network do not reveal much information about its organizational make-up, or whether its female employees will play a leading role in managerial and administrative positions.

The channel is expected to start broadcasting in 2014. Unless it is directed by women, for the betterment of one another, the project will be yet another veneer to mask fundamental social and economic issues faced by the majority of Saudi women.

In Saudi Arabia’s conservative culture, there are many obstacles that prevent women’s social and professional advancement. That is not to say there are no pioneering Saudi women who have challenged the path of least resistance and achieved great things, including those who have become the country’s first female filmmakers, pilots, flight dispatchers, Mount Everest mountain climbers, government ministers, fine arts performers, Olympic athletes, and UNDP and UNESCO Goodwill Ambassadors. There are women business owners, engineers, doctors, academics, television, and radio anchors and other female professionals in the country.

This success, however, has been achieved on an individual level. Collectively, Saudi women fare less well. In January 2013, women gained access by appointment to the all-male Shura Council, a government body that advises Saudi King Abdullah, but still cannot run for political office and are not expected to gain the vote until 2015. Among other forms of disparate treatment, women’s gyms are not granted licenses and, of course, there is the ban on female drivers in the country.

Al-Mrah can be a platform that brings women’s individual successes to a larger audience and generates support for the social and political changes they seek in Saudi Arabia. A female leadership team for the channel would make these possibilities even more likely.

KB says: Not sure what to do with all the left over burfee from Eid? Why not try a BURFEE MILKSHAKE which makes around 6 servings.

Burfi Milkshake



Just over 1L milk
6 tbs Vanilla ice cream
4 tbs milk powder (Klim/Sunshine)

2 tbs burfee (or 6tbs, if milk powder is not available)
1 tbs cinnamon sugar
½ tsp ground cardamom
3 tbs ground almonds



Whizz in a blender.


Serve immediately.

It tastes like liquid burfee

How can I stay motivated to maintain a healthy diet for weight loss?

It is important to set yourself realistic goals to achieve a healthy eating plan and maintain a healthy weight. It is also important to have an individual healthy eating plan that is suited to your lifestyle.

An Accredited Practising Dietician (APD) can help you develop a plan by setting realistic goals and monitoring your achievements. You should develop strategies to cope with minor setbacks and arrange support when you feel you are not achieving your goal as quickly as you would like.

Remember, the lifestyle changes you start now will help you maintain good health throughout life. With a little extra help and support from an Accredited Practising Dietitian you can achieve your goal.

Try and hold on to any healthy habits you have developed in Ramadaan, this is a perfect time for change :)

Q: I’ve been told that I need to warm up before my exercise sessions but have no idea on what to do. Please help..

A: The time you spend before a workout can have a real impact, even if that subsequent sweat session is only a few minutes long.

The warm-up is a 3 – 5minute routine that should not be missed. It could be all you need to increase your blood flow and range of motion, improve mental performance and reduce your risk of injury.

The best warm-up exercises includes active movements that mimic what you’re about to do, eg. leg swings before a walk or run; lunges before strength training; arm circles before swimming and side bends before yoga, etc.


So hop to it and have yourself a great workout!
