The Islamic Forum for Australian Muslims (IFAM) organised its much-awaited three-day family camp at Cataract Scout Park, NSW during the Easter long weekend from Friday 25 to Sunday 27 March 2016.

Held annually the IFAM Family Camp caters for families from various states and has activities for men, women, youth and children of all ages.

The theme of the camp was “Believer loves a Believer”, with very interesting topics of talks given by popular speakers.

Dr Zachariah Matthews gave a talk titled “An effective daiee” while Sheikh Yousuf Hassan talked on “Take my hand to Jannah”.

Dr Ahsan Zaffarullah who has been a regular speaker at IFAM camp over the years related some stories from Tafsir ibn Kathir while Imam Uzair from Brisbane, Mr Anees Qureshi  from IFAM and Mr Dawud Ilham from ISRA gave practical examples to implement in our daily lives to be a better caring Muslims  for our neighbours and fellow Australians.

Due to the large number of participants, the camp has been held separately through its various Halaqah groups for the past three years. However, due to heavy demand, it was held once again on a large scale catering for around 250 participants. There were a number of visitors to the camp during the day time as well.

Over the past few years the children and families who have attended this camp have had the opportunity to have fun, make friends and learn their deen in a relaxed environment. This camp has grown and become a showcase for the Australian Muslim Community community calendar.

The dynamic organising committee with its large team of volunteers did a tremendous job in making this camp a success.
