Islam is based upon balanced teachings that are based upon logic and rationality, in line with modern day science and philosophy. It is a religion that is relevant for the modern world, as it is easily adopted by the modern mind. It provides practical, meaningful teachings that resonate for those who wish to achieve a meaningful and purposeful existence.
We’re here to showcase these authentic teachings of Islam.
We hear about racist, xenophobic incidents and many other forms of discrimination occurring across Australia. Most Aussies rely on the news, the internet, and hearsay to find out what Muslims are like and what Islam is about. But, often, what they hear and see is far from the truth, and the actual teachings of Islam. Overcoming the hype that media, extremists, and the uneducated thrive on is what this platform is all about.
We believe that we can remove Islamophobia and hate through education and dialogue. We hope to foster education and promote friendly communication through our website and provide an opportunity to chat over a cuppa.
Our website offers a diverse range of informative resources – read our editorials, listen to our podcast or watch our videos; there’s something from everyone.

Who are we?
Muslims Down Under are ordinary Australian Muslims playing our part against all forms of discrimination and extremism that leads to Islamophobia. Our main focus is to educate and raise awareness about Islam and Muslims.
What is this website about?
We hear about racist, xenophobic incidents and many other forms of discrimination occurring across Australia more frequently these days. A negative portrayal of Islam is present across the world, and Australia is not immune to this. Overcoming the hype that media, extremists, and the uneducated thrive on is what this platform is all about.
However, Australia is known for its down to earth and friendly nature. Our multicultural heritage and unique diversity are what make this nation prosper and succeed.
