Lebanese Moslems Association
The Lebanese Moslems Association is an Australian non-profit welfare organisation based in Lakemba.
The Association was founded between 1961 and 1962 as a community project aiming to serve the "social, religious, recreational and educational" needs of Australian Muslims, and to advocate on their behalf in pursuit of these aims. The Association also owns and operates Lakemba Mosque, which is situated close to its head office and is the venue for most of its programs and events.
In 2002, the LMA had more than 1100 financial members, with more than 5000 members attending Friday congregational prayers and "over tens of thousands" (members and non-members) using the Association's facilities on festive occasions. Sheikh Taj El-Din Hilaly, the former Mufti of Australia, is also linked to the LMA, being one of its clerical advisors and an Imam at Lakemba Mosque.
