On Becoming a Muslim

by Bilal Cleland, July 1997
[a collection of notes on the experience of conversion to Islam in Australia, and how to deal with the issues that arise]

Australian Muslims and the Ummah

by Rafiq Clarkson

This is an overview of challenges and opportunities for Australian Muslims. It has been adapted from a slide presentation covering: the danger of ghetto Islam; balancing engagement and withdrawal; understanding our own culture (eg the first 70 years as a key); currency lads and lasses and their effects on the Australian psyche; common clashes with other Muslim communities (eg within committees); stress factors, their results, and what to do about it; weaknesses as strengths; and our opportunities.

Muslim Converts in Australia

by Yusuf Eades

With the ongoing “War on Terror” in which Australia is taking part as a coalition ally of the United States, a spotlight has been cast on Australia’s small Muslim population. Muslims in Australia, now 1.5 percent of the total population, are mostly migrants or the children of migrants from Muslim countries. However, there has been an increasing attention in the media on Muslim converts from the traditionally Christian majority Anglo-Celtic and Aboriginal population. In this article I will discuss the place of convert Muslims in the broader Muslim community in Australia and some of the issues facing converts in contemporary Australia.

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)
