Crescent Wealth really appealed to me because it enables me to invest my money in line with my values and for a future I want to help create.

As someone who helps vulnerable people and their families on a daily basis, Rabiah Khawaja is a role model for many. As an immigration law and human rights lawyer, Rabiah is one of the first people to assist asylum seekers and migrants to Australia get settled and understand the laws and requirements of their new country.

Now based in Melbourne Australia, her own home country is New Zealand where she grew up after her parents migrated from Pakistan.

“It’s always been important to me for my work to be valuable and aligned with my personal values, and not simply a way of earning a living. Migration law is very difficult to navigate and at such a stressful point in someone’s lives, it’s nice to know that as a migration agent at WLW Migration Lawyers I can be of assistance and provide really valuable and affordable paralegal services when they are needed the most,” Rabia says.

“Crescent Wealth really appealed to me because it enables me to invest my money in line with my values and for a future I want to help create. I want to see much more inclusivity in our world. The way in which Crescent Wealth is able to be both open in its values (i.e. taking a stance on investments in alcohol) while simultaneously educating broader Australians on our Islamic values is powerful and something I can be proud of. It allows for better dialogue and understanding across languages whether it’s in English, Arabic or Persian. I wanted to assist in increasing this sense of inclusion and I’m proud to be a part of the future they are creating,” she continues.

Growing up with two brothers in New Zealand as a Pakistani, Rabiah has had healthy competition on the cricket pitch developing into a talented player itching to get back on the grass She continues to enjoy the game with family & friends.

“I’m very much looking forward to being able to visit my family as soon as restrictions permit and travel home is allowed. Maybe I’ll even be able to get a game in”.

We hope you can Rabiah. Thank you for the incredible contribution you are making to so many lives, your dedication to helping people with Australia’s migration system, student visas or other visa applications. The work you and your law firm does plays an important role in working towards social justice, human rights advocacy and doing the right thing under the guidance of Allah.
