- We teach our children about the rights of their neighbours and their entitlement to respect, to care and to protect their property and persons.
- We are committed to follow the example of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in approaching one another in love and understanding, humility and self-criticism, rationality and reasonability, with open hearts and open minds in the pursuit of peace.
- We stand against those who preach violence and hatred in the name of any religion, including Islam.
- We stand against those who preach violence and hatred against Muslims and the religion of Islam.
- We do not condone the taking of innocent life or the threat of such in order to promote a cause.
- We reject and condemn all violent acts that target civilians, children, and old people in order to promote a cause because it is against Islamic principles.
- As Australian citizens or residents of Australia, we stand to defend our country Australia from any form of aggression at all times.
