COULD GOOD MORALS TURN INTO BAD ONES?

All praise be to Allah.

We must bear in mind that bad morals can be turned into good ones if repented and followed by good ones according to shariah. However, the question arises, if good morals turn into bad ones?

The answer to this question is that good morals and leniency may turn into rough demeanours and obscenity due to various causes and reasons that turn gentleness into meanness and harshness, leniency into roughness and cheerfulness in anger. The reasons for these can be:

1. One’s status and position can cause a person to become arrogant or depressed as according to his position. This may alter his morals and keep him away from his old friends.

2. Removal from certain position. This may develop negativity and hopelessness in the heart and mind of the person owing to extreme sorrow or lack of patience.

3. Wealth: when a person feels that he is rich, his morals may change and he may become haughty.

4. Loosing property. Becoming poor after being rich may also change ones morals. Either because the person fears to face the society that may call him needy or because he is full of sorrow over what he has lost.

5. Concerns can also distract one's mind and cause anxieties; consequently, one could no longer endure them. It is said that concerns are like poison and sadness is like a disease concealed in the heart of the depressed.

6. Sickness and diseases. One of the reasons for the change in the behaviour of a person is because of the disease he may be facing. They change one’s character just as they affect the body, so neither do morals become moderated, nor can a person bear such diseases.

7. Old age. Ageing can also affect the morals of a person. Just like ageing weakens the body so does it weaken the mind. old age also weakens the soul beyond bearing what it used to bear of opposing desires, anger and the like.

And Allah knows best.

May Allah keep in best of character always.

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

It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer.

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
