dua time

What is dua time I melbourne jk pls

DUA TIME Melbourne

Yaa Ali Madad,

We have 2 different DUA TIMES in Melbourne (please see below). These Dua times are always the same and never changes. One of the main reason for this Dua Time is the convinience to the jamati members. Since Melbourne's jamat is a young jamat and are mainly in the corporate industy (office jobs). Dua times are as follows:

1. Weekdays (Mon- Fri) --> 7:15 PM
2. Weekends (Sat & Sun) --> 6:30 PM

Hope this helps.

If you haven't solve your situation
Talk to Mukhi Saheb of JK.

prayer and worship

Hi. Mel is my name and I'd like to experience prayer and worship with Ishmailis here in Melbourne. I live in Dandenong, but I'm willing to travel if there are no places near me to get to. I'm also interested in hearing any talks or sermons being held anywhere

I don't know if my first message got through, but I've made another attempt here

asking about your interest in ismaili practices.

Hi Mel,
can you please tell me why you are interested in Ismaili practices. I think you are non-ismaili..right??


interest in Isma'ili way of life

Hi. I'm sorry I didn't get back to you early enough, but no one had responded for a long time. I'm interested in finding out more about Isma'ilis and their outlook on life, scripture, God, practices, etc...and how that had developed from since it's birth

That's right. I'm not Isma'ili. I'm actually a convert to Islam, and performed my shahada in a Sunni mosque. However, I'm not Sunni, and have no interest in being one...and something tells me within that I'm probably more Shi'a than anything. I don't know why, but that's just me. I'm sure the years will reveal what I truly am as a Moslem

I'm interested in joining a worship/prayer group to see what it's like

Immigration to Australia, currently in Karachi

I am thinking about investing in Australia by the Townshend Homes Group which is based in Melbourne. The plot is in Canterbury Hills in Sunbury but I am not sure whether to invest in the home or not. I would also like to know if it's near any Jamatkhanas. Can somebody guide me to find a location close to Jamtakhana? Please contact me: habib0110@yahoo.com

Regarding investment in Sunbury

Yam Amin,
Hope you are good and find this email at an appropriate time and hope its not too late.

My name is Asif and i am an Aus citizen, orginally hail from Hyderabad, India. Been living here for 8 years now.
Investing in Sunbury which is around 45 km's from Melbourne CBD(downtown) will be a future investment i wud say and the area hasnt been explored alot by investors yet. People are actually beginning to invest there as our city (Melbourne) is getting spreadout due to population growth which inturn has caused high spike in property rates in and around melbourne suburban area . This area is on the western side of the city and unfortunately it is too far away from melb jk which is in eastern subury of Burwood East. Not sure if u are across this but melbourne is gearing up for a new jk (due to increase in jamat, 500 jamat reside now, Mashallah!). This new jk will be in Rooks Rd, Vermont South which is also in Eastern suburb of melbourne and not too far from our existing jk in Burwood.

If i was you, i would think twice before investing in Sunbury. The only good thing about investing in Sunbury wud be the cost which will be much much cheaper compared to the fringe suburbs of melbourne. The most recent median house price for Sunbury is $310,000 and the median unit price is $285,000

Please check out this wiki link,

Hope this email gave you a bit of assistance and helped you in some way.

Do let me know if you have any more enquires.
Take care

Can you give me the email and phone number of the current Mukhi Sahib?

i think its pretty racist

i think its pretty racist and discriminatory that i am not allowed inside my own husbands church. i am christian.... but everyone is welcome in my own church.

No need to make any

No need to make any restrictions because of religion. The basic logic is if you don't enter the church how can you know and understand more about that religion? Every one have to have right to enter any religious place, to know each other. Then they will decide what us right what's wrong.

i think its pretty racist

I don't think this has to do with racism - once you have been converted to Ismailism you can go to any JK. It's a small ceremony to become an Ismaili. My nephew's wife ( a Lebanese Christian) recently became an Ismaili

well i went to melb

well i went to melb jamatkhana during navroz 2008 and they were very warm people

How many people on average

How many people on average come to the JK on a Friday?

Ismailis in Melbourne

I recently visted Melbourne and went to JK during Navroz 2009 and the Jamat in Melbourne are not welcoming at all.

Visiting Australia

Hello Rozina,

I read your comments. What do you want to say. Can you shed some light on what you said in your post. I am planning to visit Australia and want to settle there with the help of my friend.
