Erich Mayer has reviewed Angelo Candalepas: Australian Islamic Mission for ArtsHub Writing & Publishing: “Angelo Candalepas: Australian Islamic Mission records a significant and rare achievement – the building of a beautiful, modern, architect-designed place of worship.’ While noting that some of the more detailed sections “are not designed for the layperson”, Mayer highlights both Angelo Candalepas' and Maryam Gusheh's essays as providing comments of interest to the general public.
