RULING ON IMMORAL MAGAZINES

All praise be to Allaah.

The evidence clearly shows that the making of pictures or images is absolutely haram and those who make them will be severely punished in the hereafter. The makers of pictures are cursed and will be in hell. Every picture that he has made will be given a soul and he will be punished by it in hell. The picture maker will be told to give life to that which he has created.

The picture-maker will be told to breathe life into the images he made; they will be punished and will be told, “Give life to that which you have created!”

The prohibition is multiplied if these pictures cause temptation and desire in men and women. It becomes even more evil and worse when the image shows a picture of naked women or men and women together.

All that is haram. When all such things are haram how can a magazine that specifically deals with such kind of images be permissible? How can a magazine that promotes this and calls people to temptation, immorality, promiscuity and the means of doing wrong? Anyone who publishes such magazines, or sells them, gives them as a gift or buys them, partakes in the sin.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) cursed wine and the one who sells it, the one who buys it, the one who makes it, the one for whom it is made, the one who drinks it, the one who serves it, the one who carries it, the one to whom it is carried, and the one who profits from it.

The same principle applies to these magazines that have a bad effect on peoples morals, chastity and religion. They may be considered sometimes more derogatory than alcohol, especially when they contain deviant ideas and news of female performers and women who adorn themselves in the manner of jaahiliyyah.

Working in any way with those magazines is as if partaking in sin. The activities include publishing them, writing articles for them, importing them or publicizing them. It means a person is taking part in corruption and sin. He is supporting the ideas in them and help in spreading immorality and calling for promiscuity, social disintegration, and deviation from correct morals and modesty.

Our advice to anyone who wants to attain salvation is to keep away from these magazines and have nothing to do with them in the slightest, in the hope of saving oneself and keeping one’s religion and honour safe. And Allaah knows best.

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.

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!

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
