AlHamdoLilla, all the legal requirements have been satisfied. This includes issuance of Construction Certificate, to start demolition of Building numbers 5 & 7 and construction of new building. Hence we should be able to start the construction very soon.

AlHamdoLilla, as of 2nd January 2019, more that 50% pledges that were made on Omar Mosque 2020 fundraising night have been received. Therefore, there is still more than 40% of the amount pledged on the night to be collected as we delayed its collection due to extended delay in the issuance of the construction certificate. We request all the respected donors to start making payments of their pledged amounts.

Revive The Suunah: Eclipse Prayer

It is expected that Australia will experience lunar eclipse tonight. It is expected that it will start around 4:20am and continue till after Fajar.

It is a Sunnah of our beloved Prophet to pray Salat Ul Kusuf during eclipse.

There was a miscommunication during khutba that we will pray the eclipse prayer at 9:30pm. As the eclipse will start around 4:20am Sheikh AbdulRahman reannounced at Asar prayer that we will pray the eclipse prayer at 4:45am inshAllah and finish 20 minutes before Fajar 5:27am.

Please make an effort to revive the Sunnah and join us.

Gifted With Cancer – Ali Banat Passes Away

It is with great sadness that we bring you the news that our beloved brother Ali Banat passed away yesterday. إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ‎

He proved to this world how something like cancer can be taken as a gift from Allah SWT. Doctors gave him 7 months to live, Allah SWT gave him 3 years. During these 3 years he left the ease of this life and started beautiful projects like MATW Project.

May Allah SWT increase his ranks in Jannah.

His Janaza Prayer will be held at Lakemba Mosque today after Dhuhr prayer. Those who can attend please wear white as it was one of his wishes.

May Allah SWT give him a high rank and give sabr to his family.
