HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW KHADIJA (RA)?

How well do you know Khadija?

How well do you know Khadijah, the wife of Prophet Muhammad?

She is the daughter of Khuwayled, who was considered royalty in Mecca.

She was married and widowed twice and was nicknamed “Attahira” (The Pure One)

Khadijah managed her father’s trading business and after he passed she was able to turn his caravan into one of the biggest in Mecca at the time.

The Prophet (pbuh) started leading caravans and he was a great tradesman. Khadijah (RA) was intrigued by his honourable reputation and therefore offered him a job.

Although she was 15 years his senior, Khadijah RA was charmed by the prophet’s honesty and noble character, that she proposed to him, indirectly, through her friend Nafisah.

Before the revelation of the Quran, the Prophet (pbuh) used to go to the cave of “Hira’a” where he’d stay in seclusion for days. Khadijah was very supportive of her husband, and it is reported that she used to climb the mountain and bring him food.

When Jibreel AS came down to the Prophet (pbuh) with revelation, He (pbuh) sought comfort in Khadijah (RA) saying “Zammelooni” “Embrace me and cover me up”

Khadijah reassured him and told him, “Never! By Allah, Allah will never disgrace you; You keep good ties with kinship, tell the truth, help the poor and the destitute, serve your guests generously and assist the deserving calamity-afflicted ones.”

These words describe the love and respect Khadijah RA had for her husband.

Therefore, her memory stayed with the Prophet (pbuh) his whole life, he kept his connection with her family and friends and used to send some of them presents.

Her support to the prophet (pbuh) didn’t go unnoticed.

Allah was pleased with Khadijah (RA) so much so that He sent her salam by means of an angel. Jibreel (AS) not only conveyed this exalted salam, he also sent his own greetings to Khadija.

Allah also promised Khadijah “a house in heaven where there is no noise or weariness.”

May Allah make us from the followers of the path of Khadijah (RA) and all the righteous!

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

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
