WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF SORCERERS, FORTUNETELLERS AND SOOTHSAYERS?

All praise be to Allaah.

There are a number of things by which we can say if a person is a sorcerer or a charlatan and among them, the most important is that he claims to know the unseen. Even if the person does not say that openly but he will talk about matters of unseen which are clear lies and falsehood. He will claim to solve certain problems and claim that he knows exactly what the future holds. He will claim that certain rituals and sacrifices will make a person get whatever he wants. Remember it is all lies and falsehood. Whatever he claims to know, know that he does not know any of it. These are their deceitful practices to take away the peoples wealth unjustly and often they involve devils in their evildoings.

Some of their lies can come true if Allah wills but most of it will be lies. Only the gullible falls prey to such evil. Their lies are onlooked because few of them did come true.

They are also not righteous. They are never keen to worship. They may have their own rituals and practices that are not known to common people and they tend to keep secrets. They are also often exposed for their lies and in matters dealing with women. It often comes to light that they have committed haraam actions involving women, such as being alone with them or touching women using the excuse of healing. They tend to exploit people by claiming to be faith healers and practicing things that are far from Islam.

They ask for the name and other details of the person who comes to them. They use bukhoor(incense) sticks and very strange things. They write Quran with impure substances (and menstrual blood) and while being impure themselves. They ask to offer sacrifices of animals and sometimes other kinds of sacrifices in the name of someone other than Allah. They use large rings and other ornaments.

They do not fo ghusl after janaabah (impurity following sexual activity); They recite and write strange words that are not known to common people. They use secret signs and charms. They use amulets and give amulets to people who come to them. They may pretend to recite Qur’aan in the beginning to deceive the person who has come to them.

And Allah knows best.

We ask Allaah to protect us from their tricks, for He is the Best of protectors and the Most Merciful of those who show mercy.

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

MUSLIMS MOURN ALI BANAT - THE MAN ‘GIFTED WITH CANCER’

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!

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
