We’re currently in the middle of the Holy month of Ramadan. During this month, millions of Muslims around the world fast from sunrise to sunset and observe the tenets of Islam.

 

A few months ago, the Islamic Museum of Australia opened in Victoria. As well as displaying art and artefacts, the museum also displays stories about the first Muslims in Australia, who started visiting before European settlers.

Islamic Museum of Australia director Sherene Hassan chatted to us about how the museum has been changing minds, dispelling misconceptions and educating the public about Islam. She also talks about her own experiences celebrating Ramadan growing up in Australia – from primary school to her work and family life.
