Workshop Information

It’s only been in recent decades that large numbers of Muslims have lived in Australia. For many of us growing up here, it hasn’t always been easy. Sometimes it’s questions that can’t be answered, sometimes it’s practical problems, and sometimes it seems like our practice of Islam seems to be from another time and place.  With all this in mind, how should we set our priorities as Australian Muslims? What might be our role in this country? And what can we learn from the history of Islam thriving in a myriad of cultures across time and place?

Join us for an enlightening evening on Sat 23 July where we tackle these questions with our esteemed guest speaker, Shaykh Haisam Farache.

Date: Sat 23 July
Time: 6:30pm – 9pm, starting with Isha prayer
Venue: Gallipoli Community Hall, 3 Dartbrook Road, Auburn 2144
Price: $5 per person
Speaker: Shaykh Haisam Farache

Dinner served on the night
