The Griffith Muslim community has a clear message for people on Sunday, World Religion Day: unity.
"We would like to convey the message to stay safe and take care of your neighbours, irrespective of what religion or faith you come from." Imam of the Griffith muslim community Dr Mohamed Mofreh said.
"Taking care of each other should be the highest priority.
"We encourage all of the community no matter the religion to be safe and live together in peace."
Griffith alone has over 20 registered religious organisations, coming from a number of Christian denominations, Muslim, Sikh and even a Baha'i community. Across the MIA it's even more diverse, which makes this area a truly unique place in regional Australia.
"The M.I.A really is a melting pot in many ways and probably an example to the rest of Australia of the way that we can all work together and appreciate the different gifts that we bring to the community," Father Robert Murphy from Saint Peters Anglican church in Leeton said.
"If you look at the M.I.A, people come from all parts of the world with a common purpose to make a happy and prosperous life and I think there is room for all religions in our community."
Dr Mofreh explains that his mission as Imam of the Jamia Masjid Riaz Ul-Mustafa in Griffith is to 'bridge the gap' between Muslim and non-Muslim in the community to foster understanding that all religions are really working toward the same goals.
"If you think about it, all religions are coming from one. The last religion that came with the prophet Muhammad was Islam but if you look for any religion you will see that all of them will go for the same moral direction," he said.
"We go to all celebrations at St Alban's church like Easter and Christmas.
"In all our celebrations we invite the church to come and join us too and give a speech, not only with the Anglican church but with others too."
What makes Griffith such a beautiful place to live is its multiculturalism said Dr Mofreh, who took over as Imam in 2016, when the founder of the Griffith mosque, Riaz Ahmed sadly passed away.
"I like Griffith very much. I never thought about moving from Griffith once I arrived here," he said.
"The people are from many nationalities here and we cooperate together. You feel comfortable and safe and the people love and care for each other here."
