After being cursed, expelled from paradise and being given respite until the appointed day, Iblees avowed, “surely I will sit in wait against them (human being) on your straight path. Then I will come to them from before them and behind them, from their right and from their left, and you will find most of them as thankful ones (i.e. they will not be dutiful to you)”. [Surah al-A’raf (7): 16-17]
Ibn Abbas (RS) explained, “When shaytan said this, it was a guess and an assumption on his part. Yet, the truth turned out to be the same is the same because Allah says in surah saba, “And indeed Iblees did prove true his thought about them, and they followed him, all except a group of true believers. And he had no authority over them, except that we might test him who believes in the Hereafter, from him who is in doubt about it. And your lord is watchful over everything…[surah Saba (34): 20-21]
So, although shaytan has no power over the believer, he is able to gain jurisdiction over those who accept his ideas and follow him willingly. Allah said to Iblees when he asserts to mislead the children of Adam, “certainly, you shall have no authority over my slaves except those who follow you of the Ghaawoon (those who go astray, criminals, polytheist, and evildoers)”. [Surah al- Hijr (15): 39-42] and it is mentioned in [surah an-Nahl (16): 99-100], “verily he (shaytan) has no power over those who believe and put their trust only in their Lord (Allah). His power is only over those who obey and follow him (shaytan), and those who join partners with (Allah)
Shaytan can thus, do no more than call people to bearded and make it took attractive to them. He has no power over them to force them in to accomplish what he wants. People who acknowledge his call do so because it suits their urges and desires. So the blame is attached only to those who greet him
On the day of judgment, the Quran (jinn companion who encourage evil deeds) will declare against man and disown the actions of man saying he was misguided in himself, receptive to falsehood and resistant to the truth as Allah says, “his Quran will say, ‘our lord I did not push him to transgression, (in disbelief, oppression, and evil deeds), but he was himself in error far astray’. Allah will say, ‘dispute not in front of Me, I had already in advance sent you the threat. The sentence that comes from me cannot be changed be changed, and I am not unjust to the slaves”. [Surah al-Qaaf (50): 27-29]

Shaytan is given power over the believer because of their sins, for example, Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said about a Qadhi (judge), “Allah is with Qadhi so long as he is not unfair. If he judges unfairly, then he forsakes him and lets the shaytan be with him. [(Hasan) - Al-Hakim and Bayhaqee]

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
