All praise be to Allah.

Parenting is a great responsibility and parents are faced with day to day challenges to bring their children in a good environment and making them follow the Deen of Allah. Many parents face the issue of children falling into bad company and going astray. So the question arises as to how should parents advise their children who are getting away from Islam and bring them back.

The only realistic way to do so is by providing them the best and good alternative; that they love. It has been rightly said that the alternative to bad company is good company. Make sure they have good friends and are schooled in a very good and Islamic school. Make sure your children are enrolled into activities that are beneficial to them, physically, mentally and even spiritually. The activities that they indulge into must be constructive and should affect your child positively.

Firstly, you have to keep a regular check on your child’s activities. If you are going to ignore them and what they do by being busy in your own work and world then forget that the child will understand everything on his own. The society has so much to offer and the number of bad things outnumbers the number of good ones. Moreover, the impact of society and friends may make your child to opt for the bad ones. So, before that happens, spend some time with your child and make sure that they are bought into an Islamic and good environment.

Secondly, provide Islamic education to your child from the very beginning. He may not be able to accept that after imbibing worse things from the world. Make them aware of who Allah is? Who Prophet (peace be upon is) and most important why do we have to follow the?

Thirdly, if your child does interact with people outside of his religion and goes out with them, then see if the limits of friendship are not crossed. Do check that they still remember to pray and avoid all haram things. If by chance the child happens to deviate and cannot find the balance then limit their meeting with the particular person you think are bad influence. Limit the time that they spend outside of the house. If that means that you have to be a strict parent, then be that! You should be strict at certain times but not you should never condemn them or threaten them or insult them. Try to sort out things with love. Remember, the Prophet, peace be on him, taught people through examples rather than through precepts.

Apart from that, you can spend some time yourself with your child. You can go out with them, to some park or restaurant.

Give your child some innovative and beneficial activities to do, that way they remain busy and do not linger on bad.

Teach them the halal ways of having fun.

Lastly, pray to Allah that He, the most Exalted, may guide your child and protect him from going astray.

May Allah help us all.

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


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! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


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
