Quakers Hill Masjid is a project of Al-Barakah Welfare Trust Australia. The mission of the Trust is to please Allah, the creator of the Universe by promoting Islamic activities for the benefit of its adherents and the humanity in general in light of the Qur’an and the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Al-Barakah Welfare Trust promote and encourage knowledge and understanding of Islam and to build positive relationship with people of all faiths.

Al-Barakah Welfare Trust is managed by the trustee Al-Barakah Welfare Australia Pty Ltd consisting of a Board of Directors and governed by the Deed of Trust. Two Directors are elected from the members every alternate year to replace two retiring Directors.

The original Deed of Trust provided that only a natural person may be a trustee of the Trust, subject to that person meeting the eligibility requirements. That become a significant administrative burden because any time there had been a change of trustee, it became necessary to also update the registered owners of the Trust property. To avoid this ongoing administrative burden, it was proposed that the Trust Deed be varied to permit a body corporate to become the sole trustee of the Trust. The proposal involved the varying the Trust Deed so that the trustees may be replaced by a single body corporate trustee, with the body corporate trustee’s board to comprise persons having the same eligibility requirements as the trustees.

On 17 March 2019, members present at the Annual General Meeting 2018, unanimously voted in favour of, and passed the special resolution approving, the Variations to the Deed of Trust.
