Why You Should Not Pray Alone - Powerful Reminder

Be with those who are worshipping Allah and stay with them, don't separate yourself from them and be part of the Jama'ah (congregation).

Now from this Ayah (Verse) scholars have also derived the importance of praying Salah (prayer) in the congregation. Remember that praying in congregation. This is something that is an obligation on men, however it's not an obligation on women.

Do you know what the reward is for praying in the congregation? Twenty-seven times more! Sometimes we say I won't pray right now, I will pray later. OK, there is a genuine reason and you have to go somewhere or you have to do something urgently, that's a different matter? but if for no reason you are saying yeah I can pray later, oh they take too long in the congregation, they take 10 minutes to pray, I can pray in 5 minutes in my home. Should we do that? NO, we should not do that because what are we losing out on? A LOT OF REWARD!

Remember its important, extremely important that when the jama'ah is going on, we should join that unless there is a genuine reason that prevents you from doing that and also remember that jama'ah is is an obligation for who? for the Men? in a Hadith we learn that Abu Hurairah (ra) narrated that a blind man once came to the Prophet (pbuh) and he said, o Messenger of Allah (pbuh), i have no one to guide me to the masjid, I am blind and i have no one to guide me to the masjid when it's time to pray, when the jama'ah is going on so the Prophet (pbuh) allowed him and when he turned away the Prophet (pbuh) called him back and He said, can you hear the adhan (Call to Prayer), when the Adhan is pronounced, can you hear it in your home? he said yes I can so the Prophet (pbuh) said, then you must respond to it.

If you hear the call to prayer then you have to respond to it. Imagine he was a blind man, similarly from another Hadith in which Prophet (pbuh) saw a man who was praying alone by himself, perhaps he came late to the Masjid so he missed the jama'ah so he was praying by himself so the Prophet (pbuh) asked the people, who will give sadaqah (charity) to him? Who will give sadaqah to this man who is praying alone? What did he mean by that? He means who will pray with him so that he could increase in his reward so that his reward can be multiplied.

If you want to pray than avail that opportunity. Don't let it go by because on the day of judgment, you know what's gonna happen? We are gonna wish for the smallest of good deeds. We think i have enough and at least I am praying but on that day you will want more? Has it even happen with you that you go to the mall with your friend, you have a hundred dollars and your friend has two hundred dollars or something like that? and your friend ends up buying something that you cannot afford! Do you say it's ok? No, you want more. right? You will wish that you had brought more money. You wish that you had more money that you could buy more stuff, you could enjoy more.

When it come to duniya (world) we want more but when it comes to aakhirah (hereafter) we say it's OK. You know when you enter jannah (paradise) then you will wish that you will be higher. You will wish that you had more so don't let these opportunities go by so bow down with those who bow down, pray along with those. JOIN THE CONGREGATION.

May Allah guide us to straight path (Ameen).

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

MUSLIMS MOURN ALI BANAT - THE MAN ‘GIFTED WITH CANCER’

It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him!

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
