Salam, I would like to welcome you on behalf of the wonderful staff, members and volunteers of ISRA. I am grateful to God in witnessing everyday as I watch ISRA grow and make a difference in people’s lives. I couldn’t be happier to have you be part of the journey. My vision for ISRA was to provide a platform for the Muslim community to flourish in their Islamic academia and a place of service and solidarity as Muslims from all walks of life, culture, gender and age come together in the spirit of a community. I am very humbled for ISRA to become one of the leading Muslim community and educational institutions in Australia over the last decade. With your participation and support, I am certain that it will continue to make considerable contribution to our people of Australia and increasingly so the international community. ISRA is a warm, welcoming place with a focus on the development of the Muslim community spirit and a sense of unified Australian Muslim identity. Our identity supported by the values of knowledge, faith and service becomes our compass in everything that happens at ISRA. We have a dynamic learning environment with highly trained lecturers and teachers for every individual to thrive. Thank you for your interest in ISRA as your gateway into knowledge. We hope you gain what you hoped for and more in engaging with ISRA. Please take the time to browse through our website to gain the most out of ISRA through the various programs tailored for different stages of one’s journey of the mind and the heart. Thank you for taking interest at ISRA and I look forward to your acquaintance with the people and services of ISRA. With my warmest wishes.
