All praise be to Allah.

First of all, let us look at this hadith in which the dua of Jibreel is mentioned and its virtues are pointed out.

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Jibreel came down to me when I was praying behind the Maqaam and when I had finished praying I called upon my Lord, and said: ‘My Beloved, teach me something for my ummah so that when I depart this world and leave them, they may call upon Allaah and He will forgive them.” Jibreel said: “Whoever among your ummah bears witness that there is no god but Allaah and that you are Muhammad the Messenger of Allaah, and fasts the three days of al-beed, the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth of each month, then calls upon Allaah with this du’aa’, which is written around the Throne. By the power of this du’aa’, O Muhammad, I descend and ascend. By this du’aa’ the Angel of Death takes the souls of the believers. This du’aa’ is written on the covers and pillars of the Ka’bah. Whoever among your ummah recites this du’aa’ will be safe from the torment of the grave and he will be one of those who are safe on the day of the great terror and from the death of the evildoers and Allaah will grant him independence of means, and he will granted provision from a source he never could imagine, and you will be his intercessor on the Day of Resurrection, O Muhammad…: ‘In the name of Allaah, the Most Gracious the Most Merciful. May Allaah send blessings upon Muhammad and his pure family. Glory be to You, You are Allaah, there is no god but You, You are the Guardian, the Protector; Glory be to You, You are Allaah, there is no god but You, You are the Fashioner, the Most Merciful; Glory be to You, You are Allaah, there is no god but You, You are All-Hearing, All-Knowing; Glory be to You, You are Allaah, there is no god but You, You are the Ever-Living, Sustainer; Glory be to You, You are Allaah, there is no god but You, You are All-Seeing, the Truthful; Glory be to You, You are Allaah, there is no god but You, You are the Expander, the Subtle; Glory be to You, You are Allaah, there is no god but You, You are the Most High, the Most Great; Glory be to You…” etc. In the authentic sources of islamic knowledge, there is no basis for this hadith and so of this so-called dua of Jibreel. It is not even found in the daeef reports. This hadith is falsely attributed to the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Whoever is familiar with the wording of ahaadeeth and du’aa’s will have no doubt that it is a fabrication of the heretics. Describing the virtues of this du’aa’ it was said: “Whoever writes it on his shroud with the dust of al-Husayn (peace be upon him) will be protected from the torment of the grave”!

Some of the phrases used are indicative of the folly of the author, as he thinks that this du’aa’ can trick the guardians of the faith. Listen to what he says: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, and I memorized it and taught it to the believers of our party and our supporters”!

As for the exaggerations about the rewards to be earned, and the mistakes in grammar and spelling, there are many such. At the beginning it says: “O Allaah, send blessings upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, there is no god but Allaah, the number of those who proclaim His Oneness, Allaah is Most great, the number of those who proclaim His greatness, praise be to Allaah, the number of those who praise Him, glory be to Allaah the number of those who glorify Him, I ask Allaah for forgiveness, I ask Allaah for forgiveness, the number of those who ask for

forgiveness.” Whatever the case, in the saheeh Sunnah there is enough to suffice and we have no need of these misguided myths. Our advice to our brother is to read Husn al-Muslim (available in English under the title “The Fortress of the Muslim”) or Saheeh al-Kalim al-Tayyib, and the du’aa’s narrated by the trustworthy imams such as al-Bukhaari and Muslim in the chapters on du’aa’ in their books.

And Allaah knows best.

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
