Welcome to AMWA
Assalaam 'alaikum or peace be with you.
Established in 2010 this organisation represents the interests and concerns of Aussie women - those born here, converted to Islam, or who identify as much with Australia as their ancestral background.
Support for Muslim women is often limited to cultural associations and religious classes. There are many areas though where Muslim women may need advice, assistance or mentoring. Some of the areas that we hope to address are listed in the About Us section.
Contact us for information, check out our blog, or check our Facebook page and find out what issues and events are big for Muslims in Australia.

AMWA's thoughts and prayers are with those who have suffered the horrors of deliberate and callous violence inflicted by those claiming to have an affiliation to an 'Islamic State'. In Surat al Ma'ida, Allah exhorts those who believe: "O you who believe! Be upright for Allah - and be witnesses with justice; and let not the enmity and hatred of others make you avoid justice. Be just, that is nearer to piety, and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Well-Acquainted with what you do." Arbitrary violence in order to inflict revenge, fear or to terrorise people has no place in Islam. There are indeed tragedies unfolding daily in many different parts of the world and our thoughts and prayers are with the innocent suffering in each of these places - but such an event as occurred in Paris is just as evil as the barrel bombs descending on innocent families in Syria. We absolutely reject any claims to an 'Islamic State' by DAESH, condemn outright their atrocities and urge all governments to resist escalating military and arbitrarily violent 'solutions' as these will only breed more violence. We pray that communities will unite to overcome the evil in the world today with Justice and Compassion and Equity. Only then can we begin to arrest humanity's current moral decline.
