discussion circles

Our discussion groups are a great opportunity to meet like minded people and talk about topics that interest our members from Qur'anic exegesis to poetry, current affairs to science, literature and art. We engage with the issues of the day from Islamophobia to homophobia, our discussion groups are open to it all. 

If you are keen to come along check out your nearest group. We currently hold groups in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane.



For over a year, the Muslim Collective has been coming together fortnightly to discuss passages in the Quran using three different English interpretations. At the Muslim Collective we believe that critical thinking, respectful dialogue and engaged listening are essential. Please join us for a stimulating and open discussion in a safe space.

Where: Kathleen Syme Community Centre, Carlton    When: Tuesdays (fortnightly) at 7pm


MPV Canberra's Discussion Group on Religion, Society and everything else are held on Tuesdays every second fortnight (four weekly). Everyone is welcome to attend and bring friends. Please also see our Contemplation of the 99 Names of God event that runs on the alternate fortnight. 

The discussion is started on a topic raised by one of the attendees. Each week we'll have a speaker chosen in advance who'll pick a topic that they'd like to explore. No topics are off limits, whether religious or political, feel free to speak about and discuss anything that is on your mind.

Where: Hancock Library, ANUWhen: Tuesdays (fortnightly) at 7pm


The Sydney Muslim Collective is unified by our quest to explore Islamic thought and spirituality through progressive, open-hearted conversation and community. We run regular discussion groups on a variety of topics that are relevant to our daily lives. We're a diverse bunch, and we welcome newcomers from all walks of life. We invite you to drop by, just to say "hello!".


In Brisbane we have only recently started regular meetups. We have Qur'an discussions, coffee catch ups and picnics and we are planning more for the future such as visits to the Islamic bookshops, attendance at public lectures and also cinema viewings. We are looking forward to growing in the future.
