Thinking for Palestine: Dua, Donation, What Else

Our hearts bleed and our tears pour. The events in Palestine, and indeed in many places around the world, seem to unfold without any end in sight. As the statistics continue to rise, the emotions coursing through us rise also. Pain. Anger. Worry. Confusion. Guilt. However, it is now time to act. As Muslims blessed with food, shelter and security, it is a betrayal of the highest degree to sit by while our brothers and sisters face imminent suffering. We all have a part we can play, and the only thing stopping us from carrying it out, is ourselves.

Changing Our Condition Conference

MYA proudly presents our first-ever Islamic Conference, where we aim to explore six critical issues that have a significant impact on the lives of Muslims living in Australia. Unlike other parts of the world, Islam is a relatively new phenomenon in the Australian landscape which means that we are in the early stages of establishing our roots here. This also means that we are inundated with challenges left, right and centre. Together, let us delve into the intricacies of our context, address the issues at hand, and pave the way for Islam to flourish in Australia for generations to come. Join us now and be a part of this transformative experience.

Spiritual Intensive: Unlocking Man's True Potential

Note: Event postponed due to unforeseen circumstances.

Many of our hearts sink when we think about our pasts. But know that our history is filled with tales of drunkards, prostitutes, murderers, thieves and sinners who became awliyā (Friends of God) within the blink of an eye due to a sincere supplication and a teary eye. This potential lies within each of us too. With God’s mercy and power, anything can be turned around, especially the life of a believer who desires proximity with God. Join us at our Spiritual Intensive on Saturday 17 June with Dr Mohamed Ghilan and Ust Saara Sabbagh where we will learn more about the untapped spiritual potential within us and how we can unlock it.

Moving Forward: The Future of Islam in Australia

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?

Story Night | Coming Soon

In our experience of Islam’s outward rules, we often forget that the Quran is home to a whole universe of awe inspiring stories. Not only do these stories invite deep reflection, but they incite transformative action that we can apply in our daily lives. MYA’s Story Night initiative seeks to create magical experiences where attendees will be carried away to a different time and place, listening in to the stories of our greatest Quranic figures while enjoying the bustle of vibrant food stalls, ambient bazaars and enthralling musical performances.
