 Newsletter 0471





A fortnight ago, young Zakarriyaa Sayed Rahimahullah (16) was selling tickets at the Holland Park Mosque after Jumma to help raise funds for the men, women and children of Afghanistan, his country of birth.


Last week Zakarriyaa's body was recovered from a disused quarry in Brisbane after a tragic drowning.


His Jannazah was held at the Kuraby Mosque where over 700 people attended.


Fazal Deen said he was a great kid who was always helpful and prepared.

"I will always remember him as a tireless worker who always helped at various functions and gatherings, whenever you needed a hand, he was there," he said.

"It was heartbreaking to learn of his death."

"It would a fitting gesture in memory of the very likeable young man if the community came out in full support of this event," Sister Sultana Deen told CCN.

On Saturday 9 November at the Islamic College of Brisbane, 30 young Muslims (both male and female) from a diverse range of backgrounds and representing a vast range of societies and organisations, took part in a three hour forum with senior members of the Queensland Police, including the Commissioner Ian Stewart, along with the Anti-Discrimination Commissioner of Queensland Kevin Cocks.

The purpose was to give the youth an opportunity to raise issues relevant to them, discuss ways to have situations of discrimination addressed and to establish dialogue.

The forum was conducted under two themes:
• Respect
• Everyone belongs

"The forum was open and honest covering a wide range of issues. Everyone in attendance was treated as an equal – this was a strength, as was the fact only younger members of the community were involved," said David Forde, who organized and facilitated the proceedings.


After the meeting, Commissioner Cocks had this to say:

"I would like to thank you all for inviting the antidiscrimination commission (ADCQ) to engage with you about the concerns you have on behalf of your community particularly the more vulnerable members of your community in relation to everyday experiences particularly negative experiences.


I was greatly appreciative of your passion, openness, courage to advocate for fundamental human rights principles that the majority of Australians take for granted.


The Antidiscrimination Act (ADA) enables the commission to receive and try to resolve complaints under the act, deliver training to help people understand their rights and responsibilities under the act and to promote public discussion on human rights.


I look forward to working with you and members of your community in building an inclusive and fair Queensland."

The total donation (from ticket sale, donation, pledge, auction etc) received from the dinner held in Sydney last weekend was $53,000 after expense.

Commitments and payments of $7,000 from several mosques in Sydney were also received.

"We believe efforts of the participants and volunteers to contact other possible donors by text message, email, Facebook posting etc will bring more money for the project," Prof Khan told CCN.

"Once again, please accept our sincere gratitude and may Allah give you the best of both worlds for working for His house in Toowoomba."

BLAKE Ferguson has revealed he converted to Islam because his life was spiralling out of control on alcohol-fuelled benders.

The exiled NSW State of Origin star told The Daily Telegraph last night it was also a decision made to save his stalled rugby league career.

"Alcohol is completely forbidden in Islam," he said, "and that's been my problem for the last five years.

"It's brought me down to where I am now. I enjoyed a drink but it just creates problems. I've had enough.

"I really have."

It was revealed in last week's The Sunday Telegraph that controversial boxer Anthony Mundine had persuaded his "brother" to make a commitment to the Islamic faith.

They were photographed together praying at Zetland Mosque on Friday afternoon. Ferguson, who earlier this year failed in attempts to give up alcohol, says he is aware of the doubters.

"So far it hasn't been hard (off alcohol) because I'm around good influences and good people," he said.

"My face has changed. I'm looking and feeling fresh. My whole physique has changed.

"This will make me strong, God willing. Islam is going to make me a better person and better rugby league player.

"It's going to make me more focused, more dedicated, more devoted. Being an NRL player is really a 24-hour job. I haven't appreciated that in the past.

"I want to play NRL, I want to find a club, play for NSW, and I want to beat Queensland."

Asked if he still planned to fight and make his boxing debut on the Anthony Mundine-Shane Mosley card on November 27, Ferguson said a decision would be made later this week.

"We're working towards that (fight), hopefully," he said.

Mundine said he was confident his 'brother' would stay focused and commit to the religion long term.

"It's pressure for a boy like him to convert," Mundine said.

The FAMSY Unity Cup Indoor soccer tournament is back for another year. The tournament will be held on Sunday 24th November at the Acacia Ridge Indoor Centre from 8am.

This year sees the tournament streamlined to feature 10 teams to provide more matches and a higher intensity competition, but will see the return of the Plate medal for the second year.

Last years winners, Bosnia, will start the tournament as favourites as they look to further assert their stranglehold on the tournament.

The tournament will also see the return of familiar faces, as Matchfixers and Chiefs return to take part in the tournament this year.

Among the other competitors will be regulars; Dynamos, Bafana, Mesopotamia Lions, Gold Coast Bosnia and Somali All Stars.

There will be two teams making their debut in this tournament with Dream Team and Libyans looking to make a name for themselves in the 5 a side tournament.

The tournament will kick off at 8am on the 24th with the first match featuring Dream Team and Chiefs.

The full fixture list and details of the event can be found at http://tinyurl.com/nfh6scv

Everyone is welcome to come along on the day and support your team, or just come and enjoy some good football.

Dear Editor

Asalaam Alaikum.


Last Saturday I went to the Kuraby markets and came across Kazy Klothing.


I was really impressed with the great range and quality of Islamic clothing for men, ladies and children as well as the very affordable prices.


Sister Shameem Goss is there every Saturday 6am - 12pm, 0439 753 904.


I just thought I should share this with everyone as it's well worth it to go there to have a look.

Z. Hassan


World’s First Underground Mosque


ISTANBUL – The first underground mosque has been constructed in Turkey’s Buyukcekmece district in Istanbul, the building that has won the first place in the World Architecture Fest competition for religious places.

"Mosques are places to contemplate and pray,” Mehmet Narin, the Mufti of Buyukcekmece, told the World Bulletin on Monday, November 4.

“They are branches of the Kaaba,” he added.

Merging the essence of Islamic and ottoman designs with modernity, Sancaklar Mosque was inspired by Cave of Hira, where Prophet Muhammad (Peace upon him) first received prophecy.

Built seven meters beneath the surface, the Mosque was constructed by the Turkish architect Emre Arolat.


The mosque, located on 1200 square meters under the ground, is enlightened by lead lanes and sunshine to cast a spiritual environment.

Departing from standard mosque designs, the Sancaklar Mosque features a cavernous underground worship hall imbued with a special spiritual reverence.

The architects note in their brief that their design “aims to address the fundamental issues of designing a mosque by distancing itself from the current architectural discussions based on form and focusing solely on the essence of religious space.”

It has been under construction since May 2011 and is scheduled to be opened during the coming weeks.

 Defending burqa-wearers from ‘tyranny of the majority’


UK: Conservative MP, Jacob Rees-Mogg, on his constituency homepage presents a classic liberal defence on the right of Muslim women to wear the burqa.


The furore following the escape of terror suspect Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed, who absconded while dressed in a burqa, has subsequently led to a number of Tory MPs to call for a burqa ban in the UK.


In his blog, Rees-Mogg argues that banning the burqa on the grounds that it was used by a terror suspect to escape captivity is as “spurious” an argument as “outlawing London cabs” because another suspect evaded his TPim by “r[unning] off in a taxi”.

"This encapsulates one of the greatest dilemmas for those who believe in liberty. It is easy to defend the right of people to do things that fit in with the cultural norms of the majority. This includes practices that give personal pleasure but may be harmful, such as smoking or drinking.


“It is harder to argue for minority activities, especially those which stand out and may be obviously unsuitable in certain contexts. No-one proposes that people can go through passport control wearing the burka while many who would not ban it outright feel that it is unsuitable for a witness or defendant in court.”


“Electorally the number of women who want to wear a burka is insignificant yet it is important to defend such a minority against the tyranny of the majority” he adds.

Q: Dear Kareema, I'm not a morning person and feel drained most days after a busy day at work and trying to fit in some form of exercise seems impossible. Any suggestions?

A: Try some gentle exercise sessions such as yoga or aqua aerobics in the evening.


Take some time out (10-15 mins) for some quiet time whenever possible, to clear your head and de-stress.


Remember too that a good night's sleep will have you functioning better throughout the day - so aim for at least 8 hours of Z time.
