All praise be to Allah.

Many people believe that there are certain months, days etc. in which marriage is not permissible. However, there is nothing in the authentic Islamic sources that prove any of such things. No tradition is available that prohibit engagement or marriage including Muharram, Safar or even Ramadhan (as long as the rules of fasting are not broken).

"There is nothing in the sources of Islam to forbid Muslims from engaging in sexual intercourse with their spouses during the month of Muharram. However, we must know that no sexual intercourse is allowed while we are fasting, and it should be common knowledge that we are recommended to fast on the ninth as well as the tenth of Muharram.

Believers must know that no one is allowed to declare things Haraam (forbidden) based on superstitions and cultures of people without clear evidence. Also, it is not permissible to declare anything in the context of Islam out of ones fancies and whims.

There is nothing in Quran or authentic Hadith that indicate that we are not allowed to get married in the month of Muharram or Safar.

Also, there is nothing in the traditions of pious forbears or in the teachings of the authentic schools of jurisprudence to that effect. If there had been such a thing, the Prophet (peace be upon him) would have stated it.

Therefore, those who persist in such beliefs are simply following customs that have no basis in authentic religious knowledge. It is high time that we isolate such customs from the fundamental religious beliefs and practices.

In conclusion, there is nothing wrong in marriage in the month of Safar or any other month. We must not follow every innovation blindly.

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
