Film Night: Unmosqued Screening (and pizza!)
21 May, 2015
Ritchie Theatre UNSW
Islamic Awareness Forum of UNSW
The Messenger of Allah (saw) once said, “There are seven whom Allah will shade in His shade on the Day when there is no shade except His shade” and mentioned “the man whose heart is attached to the masjids” to be from amongst those on this prestigious list.
We live in a society where Muslims are constantly under pressure from everything around them. The Masjid should be a refuge for Muslims; a place they can call home. History is witness to the fact that our masjids were the hub for all Muslims; we would pray, eat, talk, learn and even play in the compounds. However, today many Muslims often run away from their mosques and centres, seeing them as outdated, restrictive and/or intolerant.
We here at IAFUNSW feel ya, bro.
So join us for a fun and insightful film night where we will be watching Unmosqued, and look into the issues affecting our masjids. Are women treated as second-class citizens? Are the youth disengaged? Are we doing enough for converts? Are our mosques run by the community with the community in mind? And of course, what can we do about it?
P.S. There’s also going to be pizza ☺
