Rooty Hill Unit started in 2000. This Unit is situated in Western Suburbs of Sydney (NSW, Australia). Its geography starts from Black Town and goes up to Penrith towards West and Riverstone in North. Rooty Hill serves the thickly populated Muslim suburbs of Mount Druitt and Rooty Hill. Due to large Muslims specially from Pakistan, India, Fiji and Bangladesh living around, Rooty Hill halqa has a great potential to increase its Dawa work. The current strength of workers/Volunteers of this unit is around 40 people.
As the central office of IFAM is situated in Rooty Hill, so our activities are more concentrated as compared to other units. The major activities of this Halaqa include the following few:
- Weekly Lecture in Rooty Hill Masjid in English and Urdu in alternate weeks
- Fortnightly Quran Study Circle on Wednesdays
- Fortnightly Kids Class, where we give an opportunity to our young and youth to socialise and learn values. These kids are occasionally taken out for excursions to different places to give them more exposure to real life situations.
- Weekly Quran translation Classes for ladies twice weekly. Average presence in 25-30 ladies
- Occasional one dish programs for all male workers of Rooty Hill Halaqa, this is supposed to be once monthly.
- Grand Iftar at Rooty Hill Masjid catered for around 500 people, this program is carried out with consultation and joint efforts of people living around the Rooty Hill masjid.
- Eid Milan parties usually they are families BBQs where at least 40 families gather.
- Occasional picnic parties three to four times a year in school term break.
