    Dear Brothers! السلام عليكم

    I’ll be visiting Newman for a few days.
    Appreciate if you can guide me regarding Halal restaurants/ food options in Newman, preferably in the areas surrounding Newman Mosque.
    Further, information about the hotels, offering halal meal, would be a great help.

    Jazak Allah
