Description:

The Australian National Imams Council (ANIC) is the only central, Islamic body that holds key representation from Australian-based Muslim clerics. Registered as a public company, the ANIC was established in late 2006 as an umbrella organisation consisting of a Council of Imams, representing each Australian State and Territory. The ANIC seeks to unite the Councils of Imams of Australian States and Territories in order to streamline the activities of clerics in Australia thus, resulting in the greater benefit to the Australian Muslim community throughout the nation. The ANIC is governed by a General Assembly and an executive board, which is solely elected by its members. At the Council's inaugural General Assembly Meeting held in March 2006, an executive board of 15 members representing all States and Territories were elected for a two year term. A key resolution passed at the inaugural AGM empowered the executive board to elect a Council Of Fatwa (Islamic rulings) consisting of seven Imams and to also appoint the position of Mufti of Australia. The ANIC is currently the sole national organisation of Imams and Islamic Scholars with broad community representation. This places the Council in a unique position of officially representing the wider interests of the Australian Muslim Community. The ANIC's members are involved in the day-to-day affairs of the Islamic community and in addressing and assisting in the affairs and concerns of the growing Muslim community.
