Allah (swt) says ''if we had opened up the doors of our provisions, if we had given our sustenance to our servants, they would have gone beyond the measure, they would have gone to a level of haram, they would have done something that they should not do. Instead Allah reveals with his Qadr as much as He wants to whomever He pleases'' Now this verse tells us a very interesting reality, Allah gives those whom He loved just enough for them to not go beyond the bounds.

Allah is saying, I know how much you're capable of and if I were to give you everything then you would go beyond what is Halal, what is permissible for you and this same sentiment is demonstrated in the Seerah of the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa salam) in a Hadith in Sahih Bukhari, it is narrated that the Prophet Muhammad (saw) was giving a group of people money, one of the companions said: o Messenger of Allah, why don't you give so and so? for by Allah I think he is a Mumin, he is a good guy, give it to him and the Prophet Muhammad (saw) ignore him and He kept on giving to other people, second times the Sahaba said: o Messenger of Allah give to him for Wallahi I think he is a Mumin and He ignored him for a second time, a third time He ignored him and then our Prophet Muhammad (saw) turned and said to him: sometimes I give money to people and I don't give to those whom I love more I.E, the beloved I don't give to, out of a fear that the money will be a temptation that will drag them in to Hellfire, in other words our Prophet knows the people!

Prophet Muhammad (saw) is saying, what you're saying about this man might be right, he is a mumin, he is a good guy but he doesn't have that type of, if you like, patience with money and he might do something that is not appropriate with that money. My dear brothers and sisters what do we learn from this Ayah and from this Hadith is very simple and that is, what we do not have and we try to get it, we didn't get it, we should be content that Allah has a plan, that Allah knows how much He is giving.

Allah reveals with his Qadr as much as He pleases (to) that person. In the end of the same Surah, Allah mentions the same fact but this time about children, Allah says in the Quran: He is the one who blesses with children, ''to some he gives all daughters''-''to some he gives all men, all boys''-'' and some families they have ''boys and girls'' and some people have no children.

This is the Qadr of Allah (subhana WA Ta'ala). Allah knows who to give what to and Allah knows how much to give and Allah knows who to test people with and therefore the believer who believes in Qadr, one of the main benefits of believing in Qadr is that you feel a contentment of the heart. Whatever has happened has happened because of Qadr and as I said many times Qadr is used to calm down and to find release from a calamity and Qadr is not used to justify a sin.

Qadr is used to find peace in whatever Allah has decreed. You didn't get the job QaddarAllah. You didn't make the million that you're looking to get from the business QaddarAllah. You didn't have this, you didn't get that, you tried, you made dua to Allah, you didn't get it, now the point is you have to try, if you didn't try then that's your problem but you have to try, you want the job, you want the business, you want to get married, you try, if it doesn't happen that's when we say QaddarAllah.

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
