Event – Canberra Masjid open day 2012

Canberra Masjid open day was held on Sunday, 25 March 2012 from 10:30 – 3:30pm.

The expected audience was both Muslims and Non Muslims.

The purpose was to:

  • Meet local Muslims and offer a chance for dialogue
  • Introduce understanding of Islam and Muslims
  • Show what activities happen in the Masjid
  • Share common values
  • Appreciate the peacefulness of the Masjid
  • Give Canberran Muslims a chance to meet in an atmosphere of peace and tranquility
Post event

A most successful day today. The key feedback today was “The event was genuine with no pretensions”. The audience saw the real message of Islam, what we do at the masjid and how the ACT Islamic community works together, and they liked it. They were very impressed with the potential of our children.

Alhamdulillah, the turnout exceeded our expectations. According to our estimates, we had between 1500 – 2000 people attend the event.

The highlights were the Imam tour, children’s fantastic performance, the exhibition & materials, the good food and kids amusement topped up by the constant stream of people waiting for fairy floss, popcorn and coffee.

This event would not have been possible without sincere efforts from the Canberra muslim community. May Allah accepts all our efforts.
