Our History

ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF GLADSTONE

Islamic Society of Gladstone Inc. (ISG), established on 2 August 2012, is a Government registered organization, and affiliated with the Islamic Council of Queensland (ICQ) and the Muslim Australia – formerly Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC). ISG was formed to cater to the spiritual, educational, and community needs of the growing Muslim community in the Gladstone region. ISG also serves the Muslims residing in Tannum Sands, Boyne Island, Calliope, and Turkey Beach.
ISG also actively participates in multicultural/interfaith events held in Gladstone like Multicultural Week (Gladstone Regional Council event) and GRIN (Gladstone Region Interfaith Network).

Over the past 6 years, Gladstone experienced growing number of Muslims from all across Australia and overseas. That led to increasing demand for Muslim religious and welfare services. Community leaders from a diverse range of backgrounds got together to formulate plans to establish a community institution in the area. The Islamic Society of Gladstone (ISG) evolved from these plans on 2 August 2012. Since incorporation, ISG has been providing a number of services to the Muslim community in Gladstone region. With limited resources available, ISG has nevertheless been able to implement a number of key activities. Activities include:

  • Operate a Musallah offering five daily congregational prayer services as well as the weekly Jummah prayers
  • Facilitate the monthly delivery of Halal meat
  • Quran and Islamic theology lessons for children
  • Appoint Huffaz for Tarawih prayers in Ramadan; and conduct special Ramadan classes for children and adults throughout the month
  • Eid prayers and community Iftar gatherings
  • Udhiya and Zakat (collection/dispensation)
  • Facilitate marriage and funeral services
  • Da’wah, Outreach programs and support for new reverts
