Sabah Al-Ahmad Mosque and Islamic Education Centre open day on 27th October 2018 was a successful event. About 250 community members from diverse backgrounds attended the event and participated in the Q&A session followed by a guided tour of the Sabah Al-Ahmad Mosque and Islamic Education Centre. Participants and their children enjoyed BBQ, Jumping Castle, Lunch and a delicious cake with tea and coffee. A display and sale of books was also organized by Australian National Islamic Library in the main CIC Hall on this day. Information booklets on Islam and free copies of Holy Quran with translation were also distributed to the attendees.

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.
