Praise be to Allah.

There is nothing wrong with a woman uncovering her hair in front of her mahrams and in front of other women, and when she is alone in her house. This is something on which the scholars are agreed and is what Muslim women have done since the time of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) and up to the present.

With regard to the claim that the Shaytaan plays with a woman’s hair if she uncovers it in her house, this is a false claim for which there is no evidence and no hadeeth or report has been narrated concerning it. So it is not permissible to make this claim or approve of it, or to transmit it to people. Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And follow not (O man, i.e., say not, or do not, or witness not) that of which you have no knowledge. Verily, the hearing, and the sight, and the heart of each of those ones will be questioned (by Allah)”

[al-Isra’ 17:36].

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) was asked the following question:

When the muezzin gives the call to prayer and a woman has her hair uncovered and is in her house, or in her family’s house, or in a neighbour’s house, where no one can see her except her mahrams or other women, is that haraam? Do the angels curse her for the duration of the adhaan?

He replied:

This is not true. A woman may uncover her hair even when the muezzin is giving the call to prayer, so long as no non-mahrams can see her. But if she wants to pray, then she has to cover all of her body except her face, although many scholars grant a concession allowing her to leave her hands and feet uncovered too. But to be on the safe side she should cover them too, except for the face; there is nothing wrong with leaving it uncovered. This applies when there are no non-mahram men around her; if there are, then she must also cover her face, because it is not permissible for her to uncover it except before her husband and mahrams.

And Allah 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
