All Praise be to Allah, the Lord of all that exists. Salam & Salawat be upon his final Messenger Muhammad (SalAllahu Aleyi wa Salam) his family, noble companions and all those who strive in His Path.
I am a Muslim and I try my best to follow the sunnah of our beloved messenger Muhammad SalAllahu Aleyi wa Saam, according to the understanding of the pious predessesors, and the scholars of our times such Shaykh Albani, Shaykh ibn Utheymeen, Shaykh ibn Baz, Shaykh Salih Fawzan, Shaykh Abdul-Muhsin Abbad, Shaykh Rabiah ibn Hadi, Shaykh Ubayd al-Jabeeri and so forth, May Allah have mercy upon those who passed away and preserve the living.
At the moment my only source to increase my knowledge is through the internet and books. Web sites such as www.spubs.com, www.troid.com www.sunnahpublishing.net and so forth.
I am in dire need of a Salafi community near me. I recently returned to Australia from my home country of Kosovo. I have been searching for one ever since I came here.
At my local Masjid, a brother named Gihad, use to give lectures on Wednesday evening, Gihad studied in Madinah (I am not sure wether he graduated). I attented some of them with doubts because I did not know on what manhaj he and his jammat were upon. Soon I realized he was a strong supporter of Feiz Muhammad (Who is a Takfiri, In youtube you can find one of his lectures speaking about the corruption of our times and the trouble facing the Ummah, and on the background he has a picture of George Bush with the Saudi King Abdullah ibn Abdul-Aziz (May Allah preserve him). I have distanced myself from him and his Jammat. He moved to Sydney permentantly and as a result the jammat has organized to bring every week a ıshaykhı to the masjid to give lecture, I do not attend them.
My search did not stop there, a brother gave me a number of another brother who graduated in Madinah. His name is Aslam Hussain. He graduated in Madinah (He says he studied under Sami Suqair & Khalid Muslih whom he claims they are long students of ibn Utheymeen) and gives lectures at the University of Queensland in St Lucia (Brisbane) and also In Melbourne, he travels back and forth from Brisbane to Melbourne. I called brother Aslam personally, he did not pick up but later returned my call. I was wanting to know the manhaj of this brother and I didnıt wanted to ask him direct, PLEASE NOTE I tried my best to remember the conversation word for word but I could of erred, so take the conversation as more or less but not word for word. I questioned him ıIf Imam Nawawi and ibn Hajr had the aqeedah of Ashari, How is it possible for them to be upon Ahlul Sunnahı. The brother answered then I questioned him ıCould we say the same for Sayyid Qutbı he replied ıAs for Sayyid, then I do not know exactly that he had problems in Aqeedah, but Imam Albani said about him that he is more of a Dawai then an Alimı or he said ıImam Albani said he is not an Alim but a Dawaiı and he said ıYou should consider his position that he was, he was facing a youth who was entering into communism, and he tried to brought them to Islamı. I came to the conclusion that this man was trying to defend this heretic. There is a organization named Sunnah Insipration, which I believe Aslam Hussain is its owner, and they also have a web site. In that web site they have a forum, in that forum under ıIslamic undersanding of current affairs & eventsı I posted most of the articles found in www.islamagainstextremenism.com, and also one from www.salafitalk.net on how to properly advice the Muslim rulers, and I had ALL OF THEM DELETED, except this one, on how to correctly advice Muslim rulers by Ahmad Bazmul. In this web site also not to forget Aslam promotes Muhammad Salih Al-Munajjid and his web site. I came to the coclusion that this man has problem with his manhaj and decided to boycott him.
There are other brothers who graduated from Madinah but they donıt give lectures or anything, so I donıt know the status of their manhaj.
This is what I know for the situation of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia for the Salafis to be aware of. If anyone knows any more information which will aid me in my search of a Salafi community, it would be great.
What ever I said right, it is from Allah, what ever I have erred, it is from myself and Shaytan.
May Allah bless our beloved Prophet Muhammad SalAllahu Alayi wa Salam.

Wa 'alaykoum as-Salaam wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuh, yaa Aboo Maryam.
Akhee, may Allaah relieve you and the Muslims of distress. The situation in Australia- in terms of the da'wah- is indeed bad, wa Allaahu musta'aan. To the best of my knowledge- and Allaah knows best- there are very few from amongst the Salafiyyah who understand the manhaj in Australia. We are currently aware of 4 brothers here in Perth, 1 in Sydney and yourself in Brisbane, wa laa hawlaa wa laa quwwata ilaa billaah. May Allaah strengthen the da'wah in Australia and around the world.
I cannot offer any assistance as to a Salafee community near yourself in Brisbane. However, I am happy to give you the contact details of the brothers here and in Sydney once I get their permission, inshaa'Allaah. We are also starting Paltalk classes with Aboo Khadeejah this Sunday, inshaa'Allaah; I just posted a thread in the Links, Conferences and Classes forum with the details. Please join us there, and we can share details there, as well. Please PM me if you have any other questions which I will do my best to answer, with the help of Allaah.
May Allaah assist you and the Muslims and may He grant us the ability to learn the beneficial knowledge and please Him by implementing it, calling to it and remaining patient with what befalls us when we do.
As-Salaamu 'alaykoum wa Rahmatullaah.
