DON'T MAKE DUA LIKE THE DEVIL

The fact that Adam (alayhis-salam) made dua to Allah (subhanahu wata'ala) immediately when he realized that he made a mistake. Adam immediately made dua, when he ate from the tree and his nakedness became apparent to him and he began to cover himself with the leaves of the tree, immediately he realized he made a mistake instantaneously! and he made a Dua, right here & there. What did He say? ''Oh my lord, I have wronged, we have wronged ourselves and if you don't forgive us and you don't have mercy on us then, of a surety, we will be of those who are lost!

The signs of a believer. The signs of a true follower of Adam not just a descendant of Adam but a follower of Adam, all of us are descendants of Adam but some of us choose to follow the methodology of the Prophet Adam, of the sign of the prophetic methodology. You make Dua immediately when there is a need.  You don't delay it. When you commit a sin, when you need anything worldly or religious or spiritual you make the dua right then and there.

Compare this to iblis... Allah tells him to prostrate: He says no I'm not going to. I'm not going to prostrate! I am better than him' This is Jahiliyyah (ignorance). This is racism 'I'm better than him' because I have a better creation material than you do, my skin colour is better, my ethnicity is better, my language is better, We still have the same satanic racism present amongst Muslims to this day. The same satanic racism ''I am better than so-and-so because of where I'm from, because of the color of my skin etc etc'' so iblis says I am better than him, I'm not gonna prostrate so Allah curses him until the day of Judgement.
Allah tells him to leave and iblis in his arrogance refuses, refuses till the very last second until he realizes he has no other alternative and he sees this curse and he realizes he shall forever be cursed so then iblis is forced to make a Dua, unlike Adam (AS)... Adam makes the Dua coming from him. Adam makes Dua instantaneously! iblis... he only makes Dua when all other opportunities are closed, when everything else is shut off and he sees now there's nothing else for me, well let me try making Dua and so iblis also makes Dua.

What is the Dua that iblis makes? iblis says: 'Oh Allah, O My Rabb, allow me to live until the day of judgment, let me live until the day of judgement and so right from the get-go we learn a fundamental difference between Adam (AS) and iblis. Adam (AS) has a continual link with Allah. He is always making Dua. iblis? this was the only time he ever made Dua. he never made dua after, this the only time! because he's gotten his need.

Adam (AS), when he came down to this earth, we know he was a prophet, a righteous man, he continued to worship, he continued to pray, he continued to make Dua so the sign of a believer is constant Dua. When you ask man for more and more he becomes angry at you but when you ask Allah for more and more he loves you. I repeat the more you ask of your fellow man the more irritated he becomes at you and you don't ask your friends too much because then they won't be your friends for too long but as for Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta'la) the more you ask Allah the more Allah loves you why because the relationship between Allah and his servant is one of servitude. is that not correct?

What is our relationship between ourselves and Allah? it is one of servitude. What is the servant need? everything from the master? What is the servant require? what doesn't he require! He requires everything not just his clothes, his foot, the air that we breathe Allah gives it to us, the life that we have Allah gives it to us so how can the servant feel arrogant against Allah?
How can the servant say I can't ask Allah this? who else are you going to ask? where else are you going to get it from? A sign of Iman is to recognize that everything that you need will only come from Allah and once you recognize that who else are you going to ask other than Allah and therefore making Dua is a characteristic of faith, is a characteristic of Iman. What Allah says in Quran: ''Your Lord has commanded you, make dua to Me & I will respond to you'' This is a command from Allah, made Dua I will respond to you.

Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: ''verily, Allah (subhanahu wa'ta'ala) is angry at the person who does not ask him. Allah is angry at such a person because he is showing arrogance. He is showing a sense of superiority and how can (Nauzibillah) any created being show an iota of pride, show an atom's weight of superiority against the Divine. how is this even possible! so the believer is ever making Dua. The believer is making dua for each and every need of his. The believer is always engaged. Dua is a conversation with Allah. Dua is our conversation with Allah and therefore the one whose Iman is high is forever having a conversation.

(May Allah protect us)

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

MUSLIMS MOURN ALI BANAT - THE MAN ‘GIFTED WITH CANCER’

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

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
