Muslim leaders seek new relationship with Australian government in wake of departure of PM Abbott, who they say 'condoned Islamophobia'

Turnbull successfully mounted a challenge to Liberal Party Leader Tony Abbott on Monday, thereby securing himself the prime ministership.

Dr. Jamal Rifi, an influential voice in the western Sydney Muslim community who worked with Turnbull during his campaign for an Australian republic, is confident that his former colleague will adopt a policy of inclusiveness “that will bridge and heal the fracture lines” created “by the previous government”.

Reporter: Rachel Olding

In a sign of deepening fractures between the Muslim community and Australian authorities, a petition was circulated on July 2, urging imams and other representatives to boycott dinners in Sydney and Melbourne because they were a tokenistic attempt "to create a false image of co-operation, harmony and trust which could not be further from the truth".

The women huddled together, sobbing quietly, while the men stood at a distance in somber silence.

Udhiya (Qurbani)

By E-Islam Team

 

What is Udhiya? 

 

‘Udhiya’ is an Arabic word meaning "blood sacrifice", and ‘Qurbani’ is an Urdu and Persian word derived from the Arabic word "Qurban" which literally means an act performed to seek Allah Ta’ala’s pleasure.
