Since its official opening in 2017, the Gungahlin Masjid has not been able to formally appoint a full-time imam to lead the Masjid in its religious affairs. This is largely due to the broader financial position of the Masjid, with the expenditures largely directed to such priorities as the finalisation of basic facilities at the premises, including bathrooms, as well as utilities expenses. Since June 2018, Sheikh Hamza Abujarbou has been fulfilling the role of Imam at the Masjid, albeit on a volunteer basis. The Canberra Muslim Community (CMC) Executive Committee, however, has sought to formalise the arrangements with Sheikh Hamza, namely by confirming him as interim Imam until such time that a full-time imam can be appointed by way of a formal recruitment process. Formalising the role of the interim Imam provides both Sheikh Hamza and the Muslim community with greater clarity around his role and the expectations associated with such a prominent role. The key duties of the Imam are to: 1. Lead prayers; 2. Lead Friday khutbah/prayers; 3. Manage regular Dars (Islamic studies) at the Masjid; 4. Lead Taraweeh prayers in Ramadan; 5. Oversee the running of religious learning activities in the masjid; 6. Liaise with the Executive Committee on religious matters as required; and 7. Provide advice to members of the local Muslim community regarding basic religious matters.
