Perth’s largest mosque opens doors for Australia Day on Muslim Holy Day

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Perth 2 mins read

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, based in Bibra Lake, Perth, Western Australia, is delighted to announce a special celebration of Australia Day this year, which coincides with Friday, a holy day in Islam. The community extends a warm invitation to members of the public to join in the festivities and witness a unique blend of national pride and religious observance.


Event details:


Date: Friday 26 January 2024

Time: Registration at 2:00 pm (Lunch will be served)

Venue: Nasir Mosque, 239 Barrington St, Bibra Lake


This year's Australia Day celebration is particularly poignant for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. As Imam Wadood Janud explains, "Australia Day is a momentous occasion for us. It symbolises the freedom and opportunities that our community, persecuted in Pakistan, has found in this great nation. It's a day to give back to the community that has embraced us, a day of gratitude and unity."


The event will showcase the community's commitment to Australian values and its dedication to interfaith harmony and social welfare. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community's Australia Day celebration is not just a reflection of their gratitude to Australia but also an opportunity to foster a deeper understanding of Islamic teachings and practices, particularly the significance of Friday as a holy day in Islam.


We cordially invite media representatives to cover this special event, where you will have the opportunity to interact with community members, learn about their journeys and experiences, and partake in the cultural and religious festivities.
