Prophet Muhammad (may Allah's peace and blessing be upon him) says: The grave is the first part of the hereafter (the Day of Judgment). If he or she is saved from the punishment and torment of the grave then whatever is after it is going to be better and easier. He will be saved from more bigger things. If he has not saved from the torments and punishments of the grave then whatever is going to come after that is going to be worse.

My dear brothers and sisters in Islam. When a person goes to the grave the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) tells us: He or she takes with them three things, one stays and two return! The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: Your family and your wealth return, what stays with you are your deeds. Your good and bad deeds because that's what's going to determine where you're going to be and what's going to happen to you in your grave.

The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) indicates, or tells us that the dead people visit each other in their grave. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: When you bury your dead then make their shroud nice and put on beautiful fragrance to them make them presentable for the people of the grave visit one another.
The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) told us that a person who is being punished in their grave, the animals can hear him or her. Ayesha (RA) said: Two old Jewish women entered my house one time in Madinah because they were neighbors and they said to Me, the people of the grave get punished inside their graves so I said to them, you are lying this is not true, people in their graves don't get punished then they left then the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) entered and I said 'Oh Messenger Allah' two old women from the Jews came to me and said the people of the grave are getting punished in their graves.

The Prophet (pbuh) said: They spoke the truth (Those two Jewish women). The people of the grave who are getting punished, they get punished until the animals can hear them so the human beings and Jinns can't hear them but the animals can hear them every now and then.

Now i don't mean to scare you but it is our deeds which inevitably decide what the status of our graves are going to be like. Either a garden from the gardens of paradise or a pit from the pits of Hellfire so the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) Himself used to say: ''Hh my lord I seek your protection from the punishment of the grave'' and this is what we should be doing as well.

(may Allah protect us from the punishment of grave) Ameen

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
