CIC Executive Committee 


As Salam Alaikum, 

The Executive Committee of the Canberra Islamic Centre announces with great sadness the death of our esteemed and much loved member, Mrs Bilquis Bhimani, wife of Mr. Abdul Sultan Bhimani. She passed away in Wollongong after a prolonged illness.

‫إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ‎

“Indeed, to God we belong and to God we shall return.”


Mrs. Bilquis Bhimani was one of the founders of the Canberra Islamic Centre, a foundation member and its life member and has remained an active follower of CIC even after moving out of Canberra to be with her children. In the early days of CIC , Mrs. Bilquis Bhimani had been a beacon of hope, a fountain of generosity and an active worker in all the activities of CIC specially the fund-raising activities. She was ever ready to organise the kitchen and cook for Ramadan Iftars and CIC social events. She also served on the Executive Committee of CIC. She was a kind and generous lady who was much loved in the community.


We offer our deepest sympathy and condolences to Abdul Sultan Bhimani, Aziz Bhimani, Hina Bhimani, Barkat Ali, Nasim B. Ali and all the members of their extended family. May Allah give you all patience and grace to bear this loss.


The funeral prayers will take place at Lakemba Mosque after Duhr prayers on Monday 27th January with burial to take place at the Rookwood Cemetery. We request our members to make dua for our departed sister. Inshallah, we will pray together for her maghfirat after Juma prayers on 31 January 2020.

With regards

Suhail Khan, President, Canberra Islamic Centre

Canberra Islamic Centre

The Centre is a focal point for all Muslims in Canberra, providing a place for prayers, Islamic education and to seek Imam guidance. It also serves as a place for the community to meet for cultural events, exhibitions, access reference books, social and religious gatherings and functions.

The Centre represents the Muslim community to the media and local and federal government agencies and plays an important role in the community, and Inshaa’Allah it will continue to do so with the continued support, donations and hard work from it’s members and supporters. The Australian National Islamic Library is a public library housed within the CIC complex, and it provides a large range of books and publications on Islam and other religions.
A dedicated place for prayers separate from the main CIC building was a community need and as such Masjid project was launched in 2011. Initially with the community financial support project was started but later on with the generous financial support from the Government of Kuwait Sabah Al Ahmad Masjid and Islamic Education Centre was completed on 4th May 2018. Below are some photos of the Masjid opening and other events and festivals after the opening of Masjid.
