Address: Grand Pavilion, Rosehill Gardens - Grand Ave, Rosehill NSW 2142

Date:  Friday 12th July @ 2pm

 

The 36th Annual Islamic Convention of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is the longest-running gathering of Australian Muslims and is set to begin this Friday the 12th of July for the 36th year. The three-day catered event will feature speeches by the community’s leadership, messages of support by prominent MPs, faith leaders and community leaders and an exhibition highlighting the humanitarian services of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. 

 

The gathering will be headlined by the National President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community along with Australia’s most influential imams, with representations from every state and territory. The Western Australian Imam, Syed Wadood Janud, who recently backed the now-independent Senator Fatima Payman over the vote for Palestinian statehood, will also be in attendance. Around 4000+ members from all Australian states and territories are expected to attend with imams and leaders of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community from New Zealand Malaysia and Fiji also speaking at the gathering. Free food will be provided to all those attending the convention for three days.

 

A number of members who fled persecution in countries like Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Afghanistan will experience this event for the first time in their lives as the right to practice religion is still a contentious issue in these countries.
Historically, this event is rooted in Ahmadiyya tradition with the first Annual Convention held in 1891 in a small Indian town named Qadian. The Annual Convention held by the UK Ahmadiyya Muslim community is the global flagship. The Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad, addresses the audience advocating for local, regional, national and international peace.
