The society represented the Egyptian Muslims in many issues related to their welfare in Australia and made representation on behalf of members whenever required to relevant government departments..
The society’s activity included Religion, Educational, charitable, Welfare, Social, and Sports activities
The Egyptian Muslim community members were and are still instrumental in many successful Muslims projects in Australia from early 70s including the first Masjid (Mosque) in Sydney, the Surrey Hills Malek Faisal Mosque.
The Society published a newsletter to the community which was developed to a monthly magazine called “Alhoda”. This magazine presented a balanced view of religion, politics, and social issues related to the Muslim community. It was read by a larger number of people and was kept as a reference by the NSW public library. (The magazine publishing is currently on hold due to lack of resources).
