Lailathul-Qadr Night 2009 - an invitation

ALMA has planned to celebrate the Lailathul Qadr Night event Insha Allah on Friday 11 September 2009. This will coincide with the beginning of the 21st fast of this Ramadhan.

As we all know that the Lailathul Qadr Night could fall on any of the last ten days of Ramadhan, ALMA has chosen the very first day in the last ten days so that members and friends will have more opportunities to celebrate this blessed night in Masjids in the remaining days of Ramadhan.

As the event will involve an all night program, members and friends are kindly requested to give their names if they are planning to stay for the Sahur meal. Please contact us to express your interest to participate in this event.

Second Iftar in 2009 draws an even bigger crowd

Alhamdulillah, the second ACEP Iftar yesterday drew more than 250 guests to break their fast at the Auburn Town Hall. The event was attended by a number of guests including the ACEP teachers and their families.

The ALMA organisers had a scare a couple of hours prior to the start of the event as it was found that the council authorities had made a mistake by making a double booking the Auburn Town Hall for another group of Muslims at the same time. Fortunately, the matter was resolved through negotiations with the organisers of the other group who managed to make alternative arrangements at the Auburn Gallipoli Masjid.
