Just over three weeks ago on a Saturday afternoon I
drove past the Mosque in Cairns with my young
aboriginal friend, Mark. I was delighted to find
someone there. It was the Jumaat from Brisbane. We
were invited in and had a chat.
It was then I pronounced the Shahadah. It was not
hard for me as I had the Shahadah in my heart for a

will in the future, Insha’Allah. Islam is the only
answer to the problems our indigenous brothers and
sisters face in today’s society.
If anyone knows of any Aboriginal Muslims between
Cains and Brisbane I would like to know.
