Iftar Dinner at Nasir Mosque

Media Opportunity: Live Interview of local Mosque Imam, local President, local community members.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community (AMC) Perth welcomed over 100 guests to it's Annual Iftar Dinner yesterday evening held at Perth Largest Nasir Mosque. The theme for the evening was fasting and the positive change it is meant to inspire within individuals as well as communities. To share with the wider community the very special occasion of Ramadhan, where Muslims around the world engage in fasting, the local AMC Perth invested hundreds of of hours of volunteer work and thousands of dollars to put up together this event.

The event exemplified the spirit of unity and interfaith harmony as it brought together representatives of Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism who all shared their perspectives engaging in a meaningful dialogue. .

Among the esteemed guests were public and civil servants, including Mayor Logan K. Howlett of the City of Cockburn, Paul Stewart from the Australian Federal Police, local councillors, and members of the South Coogee Volunteer Bushfire Brigade, alongside members of the public.

For many attendees, this event marked their first visit to a mosque, offering a unique opportunity to participate in the cherished tradition of breaking the fast. Rabbi David Freilich, Interfaith Director of the Jewish Community Council of WA, expressed deep gratitude for the warm welcome, emphasising the significance of such inclusive gatherings.

Imam Wadood Janud delivered keynote remarks underscoring Islam's teachings on fostering peace and the responsibility of a Muslim towards advocating for the rights of all community members, irrespective of background.

Imam Janud said: "We are deeply grateful to all our guests for accepting our invite and honouring us with your presence. Your presence reflects a commendable spirit of openness and acceptance. Together, we strive to build bridges and promote love, respect, and peace within our communities." 

The evening concluded with shared laughter, a tour of the Nasir Mosque, and prayers for global peace.
