Subject: Our latest partner - Islamic Museum of Australia

Two Muslim Institutions come together

I am proud and honoured to announce the signing of a partnership between the National Zakat Foundation and the Islamic Museum of Australia. This partnership commits our two institutions to work together in promoting the contribution of Australian Muslims to the wider Australian community.

A core objective of Zakat is the preservation of faith, and a core objective of the Islamic Museum of Australia is to tell the Muslim story, and in particular the Australian Muslim story, to the wider Muslim and non-Muslim public alike. In this age of rampant Islamophobia and misinformation the Islamic Museum of Australia plays a vital role in educating the community on Islam, Muslims and our contribution to Australia.

What does this Partnership mean in practice?

The Institutions will work together in raising the awareness of Islam and combating Islamophobia within Australia.
  • The National Zakat Foundation through our various channels and networks will actively promote the Islamic Museum of Australia.
  • The National Zakat Foundation will host regular information sessions – for Muslims and non-Muslims; at the Museum's fantastic conferencing facilities. Topics will span areas such as - The role of Zakat in Islam and the Community, Highlighting the local need for Zakat and Highlighting the impact of your Zakat on the local community.
  • The Islamic Museum of Australia will provide display space to highlight the work of the National Zakat Foundation as a Zakat institution focused on the building up the local Muslim community
  • Hosting joint Open Days at the Museum for Muslims and non-Muslims
We thank all of our staff and the staff of the Islamic Museum of Australia who have worked hard in bringing our two Institutions together for the benefit of the Australian Muslim community.

If you haven’t already visited the Museum we urge you to do so. If you live inter-state do include it on your itinerary when you next visit Melbourne. Click here to visit their website.
