The Australian Defence Force is set to get its first Muslim Imam as part of a push to attract more recruits from different cultural and language backgrounds.

Assistant Defence Minister Stuart Robert announced on Monday he was asking Defence to "renew efforts" on recruiting a more "culturally and linguistically diverse workforce".

Part of this is to find an Imam – an Islamic religious leader – to serve on the ADF's religious advisory committee, which provides advice to the force on policies to meet its personnel's spiritual needs.

Muslim leaders are furious at Tony Abbott’s suggestion that the community does not do enough to stamp out extremism, saying the statement is the “last card” of an embattled leader who is using dog-whistle politics to “inflame racism”.

On Monday Abbott delivered a speech on national security, in which he said: “I’ve often heard western leaders describe Islam as a ‘religion of peace’. I wish more Muslim leaders would say that more often, and mean it.”

The head of the Arab Council of Australia, Randa Kattan, said the comments were “promoting hatred and inflaming racism”.

10 Good Reasons to Do Good Deeds

Allaah The Almighty enjoins us to remember Him frequently and perform good deeds because forgetfulness is a disease that leads to neglecting virtuous deeds. Allaah The Almighty says: 

{وَلَقَدْ عَهِدْنَا إِلَىَ آدَمَ مِن قَبْلُ فَنَسِيَ وَلَمْ نَجِدْ لَهُ عَزْماً }

'Translated' {And We had already taken a promise from Adam before, but he forgot; and We found not in him determination} [Taha: 115]. One's good deeds should be based on one's belief in Allaah The Almighty, and we must frequently remind ourselves of the reward for righteous deeds which encourages us to perform them.

A person should always remember that he has been instructed to compete in virtuous deeds. Allaah The Almighty says:

{..سَابِقُوا إِلَى مَغْفِرَةٍ مِنْ رَبِّكُمْ }

'Translation' {Race one with another in hastening towards Forgiveness from your Lord } [Hadid: 21].

The following are a few factors that serve as incentives to perform righteous deeds in order to gain blessings in this world and eternal reward in the Hereafter.

6 Productive Tips to Tame Your Childís Foul Mouth

"What!?" You shift around to glance at your 6-year-old. You give him a heavy stare and then ask again, “What did you say?” He repeats the word again with the casualness of a morning greeting. Your 6-year-old just blurted a word of profanity!

How do you handle this delicate situation? Well, there are several things you can do to discourage your child from saying bad words. Here are 6 productive ways to get started:

Try to determine if older family members, friends, or TV viewing are providing your child with the improper words he is using. Young children are excellent mimickers. If they are hearing inappropriate words from those they regularly interact with, you might have a continuous battle trying to get them to stop using the words themselves. If you conclude they are getting the words from others around them, attempt to limit your child’s contact with these sources and mention your concerns to the individuals, as well.
