By Mohammed Farouk, (Event Co-ordinator/Asst Sec ICQ)


The 2013 Islamic Council of Queensland (ICQ) organised Qur’an Recitation Competition was held on Sunday, 19 May at the Islamic School of Brisbane Multi-Purpose Hall, at Karawatha.

In this year’s competition 12 Institutions (Schools/Colleges and Madrasah) from Brisbane and Gold Coast participated. A total of 78 participants in 9 categories, ranging from boys and girls under 6 years up to 14 years and over for boys, were registered and 72 participants actually presented their recitation on the day.

Every participant was presented with a ‘Certificate of Participation’ and a participation Medal. The major prize winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd) in each age category were presented with special Winners Certificates as well as a Trophy. The overall winner in the girl’s category was Sumaiyah Gedik and the overall winner in the boy’s category was Mohammed Amaan Yousaf, both of them representing the Australian International Islamic College, Durack.

Over 300 people comprising the participants, parents, friends and general public attended the function and were treated to a delicious lunch of beef palau and tomato chutney.

HALAL food is now sold at a dozen McDonald's restaurants and bacon is off the menu at some KFC outlets to accommodate the religious sensitivities of Australia's growing Muslim population.

The Muslim population has soared by 40 per cent to 476,291 in just five years - paving the way for a building program of schools, mosques and prayer rooms in the suburbs of Sydney and Melbourne.

Even the country's biggest sports stadiums, including ANZ Stadium and the MCG, have moved to offer multi-faith prayer rooms for devout Muslims.

A KFC spokesman yesterday said three of its restaurants, including two at Bankstown and Punchbowl, are certified to sell halal food prepared in a way that is acceptable to Muslims.

"KFC is mindful of responding to customer demand and cultural sensitivities in a balanced way," the spokesman said.

Eight McDonald's restaurants in Sydney and four in Melbourne offer halal food but, unlike some KFC outlets, they have not taken bacon off the menu.

"We are pleased to be able to offer halal menu items in restaurants where there is strong demand from the local community," media relations manager Skye Oxenham-Lupul said.

"Our halal restaurants also provide non-halal menu items, however modified storage and food preparation procedures have been implemented to ensure that correct segregation is maintained."

Figures from the 2011 census show a long-term decline in the number of Australians who identify as Christians - down from 89 per cent in 1976 to 61 per cent in 2011.

But it is the push for official recognition of sharia law that worried many Australians who made submissions to the federal parliamentary inquiry into multiculturalism.

More than 200 submissions to the inquiry raised concerns about or discussed the question of Islam in Australia.

US report denounces anti-Muslim sentiment


USA: THE United States has denounced what it calls a rising tide of both anti-Muslim and anti-Jewish sentiment around the world.

It has urged all nations to ensure freedom of religion.

In a wide-ranging annual report on religious freedom, the State Department voiced alarm at growing attacks against minority groups and painted a bleak picture of nations such as China, Iran, Myanmar, North Korea and Saudi Arabia.


The freedom to profess and practice one's faith, to believe or not to believe or to change one's beliefs, that is a birthright of every human being

John Kerry

Secretary of State John Kerry, while acknowledging that the US record was not perfect, called religious freedom a "universal value" as he presented the report.

"The freedom to profess and practice one's faith, to believe or not to believe or to change one's beliefs, that is a birthright of every human being," Kerry said.

"I urge all countries, especially those identified in this report, to take action now to safeguard this fundamental freedom," he said.

Kerry announced the appointment of Ira Foreman, who served as President Barack Obama's campaign outreach director to Jewish voters, to fill the State Department position of special envoy to combat anti-Semitism.

The report said anti-Semitism was rising in the media of Egypt and Venezuela, where failed presidential candidate Henrique Capriles has Jewish ancestry.

It also pointed to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's remarks questioning the extent of the Holocaust.

"Anti-Muslim rhetoric and actions were clearly on the rise, particularly in Europe and Asia," the State Department report, which covered 2012, said.

"Government restrictions, which often coincided with societal animosity, resulted in anti-Muslim actions that affected everyday life for numerous believers," it said.


Government restrictions, which often coincided with societal animosity, resulted in anti-Muslim actions that affected everyday life for numerous believers


The report sharply criticised the record of Myanmar, also known as Burma, on the same day that President Thein Sein was meeting with US President Barack Obama in a sign of US support for the former general's democratic reforms.

The State Department report said officials in Myanmar fanned a wave of violence targeting the mostly Muslim Rohingya community and that Myanmar promoted Theravada Buddhism over other faiths.

The survey said that religious freedom declined further in China and that authorities cracked down particularly hard on the mostly Muslim Uighur community and on Tibetan Buddhists, whose monasteries are under close watch.

The report said Muslims also faced new restrictions in 2012 in countries ranging from Belgium, which banned face-covering religious attire in classrooms, to India where schools in Mangalore restricted headscarves.

The youngest Arab doctor





Graduating from Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar (WCMC-Q), 20-year-old Iqbal El-Assaad is possibly the youngest Arab doctor ever.


Iqbal El-Assaad is the youngest medical doctor to graduate from Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar (WCMC-Q) in its ten-year history. When Iqbal was a toddler, she learnt algebra by watching her older siblings study. Before El-Assaad's fifth birthday, her favourite pastimes were reading books and solving mathematical problems.

 CresWalk Recovery

If you were lucky enough to take part in today’s Creswalk challenge, then be sure to follow through by:

• Enjoying a full stretch session - Try stretching as soon as possible after you’ve crossed the finish line. If you don’t get around to it, make sure you stretch at home or even put on a yoga DVD and enjoy the relaxation after the workout.
• Rehydrate – Drink lots of water. No doubt you would’ve lost fluid while walking or running so it’s important to replenish the body.
• Enjoy a healthy meal after the hard work – Have a protein rich meal to aid in muscle recovery.
• Reward yourself – Be sure to acknowledge the hard work you’ve done and reward yourself by continuing your training on an ongoing basis so you can reap the rewards..
Have your hubby or wife give you a nice massage and book yourself and some friends in for another one during the week if possible.
