About ISOD

Let know who we are


The Islamic Society of Darwin, formerly known as the Islamic Society of the Northern Territory (ISNT), was established in the year 1971, when the dire need for the preservation of the Muslim identity was felt. There was no mosque built yet in Darwin at that time. In February 1978, the ISNT acquired 1.2 acres of land in Wanguri, after a long drawn negotiation with the government. By the grace of Almighty Allah, sufficient funds were collected through various sources, which included generous donations from the Darwin Muslim community, interstate donations and grants from Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, the Department of Immigration, the Islamic Solidarity Fund and the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils, and by using these funds, the Darwin Mosque and Islamic Centre, was constructed on the granted land.

In subsequent years, the society grew. It then expanded the mosque, established the Islamic Community Hall and was able to secure a separate section for burial of Muslims at the Thorak cemetery.
