Australian Federal Police cancel Eid dinner after backlash from Muslim community
Written by Sydney Morning Herald   
Wednesday, 15 July 2015

Reporter: Rachel Olding

The Australian Federal Police has cancelled an annual Ramadan dinner after Muslim community leaders vowed to boycott the event.

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 fast is broken every evening at sunset with special meals enjoyed together with family and friends.

This could be your last Ramadaan

This could be your last Ramadaan


 

REMEMBER the beginning of Ramadan last year: the festive supermarkets with their jampacked aisles, the makeshift roadside stalls outside restaurants selling crisp sambusas and subiya, the sounds of Adhan emanating from Masajid...

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.
