Who is the devil? Is he real or it is a figment of your imagination? Or it is something in philosophy. According to Quran, he is very real, his substance is real, and you just didn’t see it. He lives before us and he is still alive today. That is an amazing subject, isn’t it? The word shaytan is derived from the root (satan) means impure and base. Shaytan refers to an entity that is rebellious irrespective of whether it is of humans or jinn. It also said that it means a nefarious soul who is distanced from Allah (SWT) and from the truth. So shaytan is in both forms (the jinn and Humans) as Allah (SWT) says AND THUS WE HAVE MADE FOR EVERY PROPHET AN ENEMY (DEVILS) FROM MANKIND AND JINN [Al Quran 6:112]. Now, what is this jinn all about? Why we have to believe in them well, they are part of something called (ALGHAIB) means things you don’t see (unseen). We agree, there are angles and we can’t see them they are in the Ghaib (unseen), made out of light. Now comes to jinn, we can’t see them they are also in the Ghaib they are made out of the fire which has no smoke to it and if the fire has absolutely nothing like smoke to it then it could be heat there is heat but we can’t actually see. Both kinds of shayateen are trying to lead people to evil deeds. The jinn kind of them are whispering to your hearts so that you can’t see them or hear their whispering and the human kind of them are whispering to your hearts in a way that you can see and hear them but not realizing it as whispering and he can be anyone even a friend of you who suggests you for drinking Alcohol or any other kind of evil deeds. As far as the question is concerned with Iblees, it should be noted shaytan is a common noun whereas Iblees is a proper noun. Iblees is also from among jinn who was the first creature that disobeyed almighty Allah’s command.In his glorious book, Allah, the Exalted, has informed us the children’s of Adam, about the enmity between shaytan and mankind that has continued since the day Adam (AS) was created

We don’t see the jinn but we said that they have choices and they were making choices even before Adam (AS) or a human being was created and their choices were sometimes good sometimes bad from them comes the one we call Lucifer or Iblees. Who is that? Who is Lucifer? Who is Iblees? You might say: he is the devil, the satan or shaytan as he is called in the Arabic language. But actually he started out as a worshiper of Allah (SWT) and he was worshiping and praying to Allah (SWT) and extolling Allah to the extent that Allah raised him up to be even with the angles. Now, remember this guy Iblees is an angle but he is worshiping alongside them because of his worship. Being so lovely and as a result, Allah raised him up. But then what happens Allah breathed soul into Adam, Allah commanded the Angles to prostrate before Adam as a sign of honor. Although Iblees was not an angle, he was included in the command to prostrate because he was striving to imitate the Angles in their behavior and deeds. However, Iblees thought too highly of himself and was arrogant. Ibn Abbas (RS) said, ‘’before he undertook the path among the residents of the earth and was one of the most active worshipers and knowledgeable person amidst the Angles. This fact caused him to be arrogant.

So Iblees refused to prostrate before Adam and said, ‘’ I am better than him (Adam), you created me from the fire, and him you created out of clay’’. This rebelliousness caused him to be expelled from the heavens and to be cursed by Allah. Thereupon, Iblees avowed to lead mankind astray and, ever since, he seeks to take each one of us into hellfire with him. He is thus, mankind’s greatest enemy.


Iblees deserved to be led astray because of what his hands earned for him. He took pride in himself and was not considerate of the fact that Allah is the one, who created him and taught him everything he is supposed to know.

The imitation was thus, from shaytan (i.e., pride, rebellion, and disobedience), and so he deserved to be left alone and as a result, he was misguiding and fell in Kufr. Allah tells us in the Quran that, ‘’Allah guides not the people who are al-fasiqoon (the rebellious and disobedient)”.

Allah is not unjust to anyone, injustice comes from the soul when the creation does injustice to himself and takes the path of Kufr, Allah leaves him to the way he chooses – even if he chooses Kufr because Allah is in no need of his creation if they turn away.

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
