When Umar ibn khattab (ra) was passing away, a man came into the gathering of Umar ibn khattab and he started praising Umar (ra) and he said Oh leaders of believers you were great, you did this and you did that and Umar (ra) said: tell me, will you be a testimony to this on the day of judgment? and then Abdullah ibn Abbas (ra) came and Umar (ra) was crying and Umar (ra) was saying, by Allah I could leave this Dunya, that nothing is against me and nothing is for me, I would be happy. Umar ibn Khattab (ra) is saying, if I left this Dunya, nothing for me and nothing against me, I would be happy.

Abdullah ibn Abbas (ra) entered the room and Umar (ra) was crying and Abdullah ibn Abbas (ra) ''Oh leader of believers, the Prophet (salaallah alayhi wasalam) left this dunya and He was happy with you, no two Muslim differed regarding your Caliphate, everybody was happy with your Caliphate and Umar (ra) said: I know that but it is this matter which concerns me, this Caliphate and then He said: Oh Abdullah make me sit up and they made him sit up and then He touched Abdullaha on his shoulder and He said: oh Abdullah will you bear testimony for me on the day of judgment.

Abdullah ibn Abbas (ra) said: I will bare testimoney for you on the day of judgment and then Umar (ra) was lying in the lap of His son & Umar (ra) told his Son (Abdullah) place my cheek on the ground and Abdullah (ra) said: why oh my father? He was kissing the forehead of  Umar (ra) and He placed His cheek on the ground. He said because if Umer is destined for Jannah then the pillows of Jannah are softer than your thighs and if Omar is destined for Jahannum then you don't want a hell bound person on your thigh.
Umar ibn Khattab told the family. He said: be moderate in my shroud because if Allah has Jannah destined for me then Allah will give me better than this and if Allah had Jahannum destined for me then Allah will strip me of these and then He said: be moderate in my grave, in digging my grave because if Allah has Jannah destined for me then He will expand my grave and if Allah had Jahannum destined for me then even that grave would squeeze and then he said to Abdullah.

Abdullah go and ask Aisha (ra) will she allow me to be buried next to the Messenger of Allah (saw) and Abu Bakr (ra) and Abdullah went and He knocked the door and He entered the house and Aisha (ra) was crying and He said to Her give her Salam but don't say Salam from Umar ibn Khattab (ra) because today the Muslims don't have the Leader and then He asked Aisha (ra). He said: Umar request, would you allow him to be buried next to the Messenger of Allah (saw) and Abu Bakr (ra) and Aisha (ra) said: I reserved that place for myself because one was my husband and one was my father but I give it to Umar and the narration mention when Abdullah was coming Umar was lying down and He said make me sit up and He made him sit up and He entered the room and He said ''Oh  my father your wish has been granted''

Umar ibn Khattab said: I had no greater wish than that and then Umar (ra) said: when I die and you are taking me to be buried, ask Aisha (ra) again because maybe because of my status she felt compelled to give me that place. Ask Her again and if she agrees then bury me there otherwise bury me in the graveyard of the Muslims and Umar (ra) passed away. He was taken and He was buried next to Abu Bakr (ra) and the Prophet (salaallah alayhi wa sallam).

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
