The Islamic Centre of Education and Development (ICED) was formed in 1998 by Australian Muslims. It aims to service the growing need of many Australians for a friendly and sympathetic way of experiencing Islam and receiving answers to their questions, to develop resources and networks that support Muslim converts living in Australia and Muslim-dominant countries, to contribute a tolerant and informed Muslim perspective to multifaith initiatives, and to enable Muslims to contribute to development needs in Australia and overseas.

Lombok Journey - 2009

The Lombok adventure begins!

1 - Lingsar village

Bright and early on a Friday morning in 2009 we visited Lingsar village for the first time. We were greeted by 50 young children and their teachers at Lingsar village’s Paud Harapan Bunda (Mother’s Hope Paud) - an independent paud, or kindergarten for underprivileged children. Everyone was dressed in their best outfits – both because they were attending school and also because they knew there were some visitors on the way.

2 - Gegerung Selatan & Gegerung Puncak villages

The second village we visited in 2009 were the twin villages of Gegerung Selatan (South) and Gegerung Puncak (Summit) where we met with over 90 eager young children.

Muslim Festivals

by Nada Ibrahim

[This presentation about Muslim Festivals was made at the JCMA Conference in 2007. It describes Eid ul Fitr (the festival of breaking fast), Eid ul Adha (the festival of sacrifice), Lailat ul Qadr (the Night of Power), Lailat al-Isra wa al-Mi`raj (the Night of the Journey and Ascension), `Ashura, Al-Hijra (Islamic New Year's Day), and Milad un Nabi (the Prophet's Birthday).]

Ramadan 2008 - the detox program

Ramadan Mubarak.

Most Muslims in Australia have started their fasting today. I've been thinking about what to say to my co-workers and friends when I decline to have a coffee or lunch with them. I've decided to explain that I am on a month-long detox program. For those that want to know more I'll explain that it evolves moral and ethical practices as well as a physical regime with the aim to improve the community as well as myself.
