How We Block the Blessings From Allah

When Ayub (as) became ill and He asked Allah for relief and Allah gave him relief but What did Allah say? ''Allah said to him: you want the cure? kick the earth with your foot at little spring of water will come out, drink from it and wash your body, you will become cured''. Why did He need to kick the earth, Allah almighty could have caused the water to come out without requiring the ill man to kick the earth and how strong will be the impact of the kick of an ill man? it will be weak but Allah Almighty is sending a very powerful message for you and I.

We need to do our part, we need to do our bit and Allah Almighty's assistance will come after that and this is part of Tawakkul. Similarly Maryam (as) after she had just given birth and she was hungry and thirsty, Allah said to her: ''Shake the trunk of the palm tree, fresh and right dates will come down, eat from it''. Why did she need to shake it? Allah almighty could have closed the gates to fall on her without the need to shake it and how strong will be the shaking of a woman to a tree that 10 men can't move? but Allah is sending a message.

You have to do your part and draw yourself closer to Allah and attend the Islamic lectures and if know it very well that it is only Allah that allows matters to matter and allows material to materialize. Your heart is only connected to the Creator. This is part of Tawakkul. There are certain circumstances that a Muslim needs to place his trust in Allah more than others. A Muslim is to plug Tawakkul in his endeavor to achieve everything pertaining to the good of Dunya and Aakhirah, however there are certain circumstances where a Muslim needs to have extra reliance upon Allah.

I will mention three of them and the first circumstance were a Muslim need to have extra Tawakkul upon his creator and ensure that his reliance upon Allah is full when you exit from your home, know very well that Allah is going to assist you to fulfill your good endeavors as our beloved Prophet (salallahu alaihe wasalam) said: ''When a man goes out from his house, he should say the following Dua, memorize it'' ''I place my trust upon Allah and there is no power and strength except in Him'' ''if a person says this it will be said to him: ''You shall be protected and you shall be defended and you shall be guided and shaytaan then moves away from him and then shaytaan will say to another Shaitaan, how can we deal with a person who has been guided and defended and protected? so the first circumstance were Tawakkul is emphasized more than any other time is when you leave your home.

The second circumstance is the moment you struggle financially, when you are struggling with your wealth, with your business, with your income. Allah wants to see from you Tawakkul more than any other times as our beloved Messenger (salallahu alaihe wassalam) said: ''Whoever is struck with poverty and then he seeks relief from people, relief will not come to him but whoever is struck with poverty and he seeks relief from Allah, Tawakkul'' Prophet says: ''Relief will come to him sooner or later''. This is the second situation where a Muslim Tawakkul needs to be strong.

The third is when people turn away from you, you are a practicing individual, Alhamdulillah, upon the Sunnah you want to pray in the masjid and call to the path of Islam, enjoin good and forbid evil. People rather than assisting you they start turning away from you. Place your trust and Allah and continue, Allah says: ''If they turn away from you say Allah is enough for me, none has the right to be worshipped except him, I have placed my trust in him, He is the lord of the great throne''

These are three of the many situations were a Muslim is emphasized to rely upon his creator. True Muslim however relies upon Allah Almighty in all of his endeavors. My brothers and sisters i will end this article with the verse from the Glorious Quran ''And those who believe and they do good deeds, we will enter them into rooms, elevated chambers in paradise, beneath which rivers flow, they will live there forever and how excellent is the reward of those who do good? who are they oh Allah? He says: ''They are those who are patient and they place their trust upon Allah''

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
