Cleanup Australia Day 2011 - ALMA will participat​e for the 6th consecutiv​e year

ALMA in collaboration with the Auburn Council will participate in the Cleanup Australia Day event for the sixth consecutive year on Sunday 6th March 2011. The premises allocated for ALMA is the Auburn Botanical Garden/Japanese garden and the Ducks river bank area. Everyone is kindly requested to arrive at 9.00 a.m. to pick up bags, gloves etc. that the Auburn Council will provide. All are encouraged to attend.

Unlike last year, the Auburn Council is not organising separate BBQs at cleaning sites. Instead they have one BBQ at the Auburn Park to which we are invited. Therefore ALMA is making preparations to organise our own BBQ at the Auburn Botanical Gardens - public BBQ area. We need to know the number of participants who will be taking part in the Cleanup event to plan the BBQ. Please contact us via email and confirm your participation.

A certicficate will be presented to high school students attending the cleanup event.

ALMA Appeal: For Queensland's & Sri Lanka's flood victims

As you are aware, Floods in Queensland and in the Eastern Province of Sri Lanka in the last couple of weeks has brought misery and hardship to hundreds of thousands of people. The death toll is rising and many are missing with grave fears for their lives.

Needless to say it then becomes a responsibility of those who can help to lend a helping hand. As Muslims it is a highly rewarded act towards seeking the pleasure of Allah (SWT) and as fellow citizens it is our responsibility towards our countrymen.

A large crowd attend Janaza Ghaib prayers for Sr. Azaria Nufail

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. It was a very emotional gathering where a few speakers elaborated their experiences with Sr. Azaria who was a pillar for the ALMA community.

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.
