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.

Eid ul-Adha

by Rafiq Clarkson

Assalaam walaikum everybody and Eid Mubarak!

As we approach Eid ul-Adha I have been reflecting on the story of Abraham and his son (Peace and blessings be upon them both) and Allah's request for human sacrifice. (You will notice that in deference to the clash of traditional Jewish and Islamic interpretations of whether Isaac or Ismail was involved I will only talk about Abraham's eldest son or his 'righteous son' and I will let you decide on who was involved).

Reasoned Discussion

"Invite (all) to the way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching, and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for thy Lord knoweth best who have strayed from His Path and who receive guidance." The Qur'an 2:125 (tr. Yusuf Ali)
