Janaza Ghaib prayers for Sr. Azaria Nufail was held at the Auburn City Council Hall on Saturday 08 January 2011 after Maghrib salat. The event was a great success as more than 200 people attended the prayers that was held following recitation of the Holy Qur'an (Khatam al Qur'an) by members of the community who gathered about an hour earlier than the scheduled Janaza prayer time.

ALMA executive committee was well supported by a number of volunteers to organise the event. As requested by Br. Nufail, Janaza Ghaib prayer was a combined community effort. This clearly signified the unifying attributes that Sr. Azaria had on so many members in the community.
