“(It is) the month of Ramadan in which the Qur’an was revealed as a guidance for mankind, clear proofs giving guidance, and the Criterion (for distinguishing right and wrong). So whoever of you witnesses this month, let him fast it.” [2:185]
The first description that Allah gives of Ramadan is that it is the month of the Quran. Therefore, in the blessed month of Ramadan, the thing we are to do the most is to engage with the Quran: recite it, learn its meaning and memorize it. If the month of Ramadan passes without our hearts bearing slightly more Quran than before, we are unfortunate indeed. MWA will be organising Quran reading sessions on Thursday mornings during the month of Ramadan in shaa Allah. To register, call us at 8212 0800. More information in the flyer below.
26 April 2018 – With most transactions and communications being done online, it is important for the seniors in our community to know how to access information and assistance schemes online. In collaboration with Centrelink and Bene Aged Care, MWA organised a ‘hands on’ session to help seniors learn how they could access their accounts and assistance schemes on the myGov portal and My Aged Care portal. While using technology and computers can be a tedious process for most seniors, our group of 34 seniors were able to rise up to the challenge and learnt how to use online portals and services provided by aged care providers.
On 15 February 2018, MWASA collaborated with the Department of Human Services, Centrelink, to organise an informational talk for the seniors from our Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP). The talk helps the seniors and pensioners understand more about new regulations and policies that affect them.
