Tip 1

THINK OF A NEW HABIT. Decide on a specific habit that you’d like to stop, make it specific and measurable such as reading one page of the Quran every morning.

Tip 2

GET CLEAR ON YOUR ‘WHY’. Think of all the benefits of starting this habit. Ensure you have a strong reason because this will motivate you to keep going even when you face challenges.

Tip 3

CREATE A TRIGGER. Link you new habit to cue that remind you to take action. For example, the trigger could be Fajr prayer… so that every Fajr you will know that you need to read Quran. Or the trigger could be something in your environment such as leaving the Quran by your bedside table.

Tip 4

PLAN FOR THE OBSTACLES. Think of any potential challenges you’re likely to face with the habit and plan in advance how you’ll overcome them if they arise. By thinking ahead, you’ll be less likely to get caught off guard and much more likely to follow through.

Tip 5

GET SUPPORT. Find a mental of friends who will encourage you and hold you to account for following through on your habit. You could even ask someone to do the habit with you.

Tip 6

DO IT DAILY FOR A MONTH. At first, you’ll need to consciously remember to do the habit and use your willpower. By staying disciplined 30 to 40 days, eventually it will become an automatic habit that you won’t even have to think about anymore.

Tip 7

TRACK YOUR PROGRESS. You could use a document to mark your progress or regularly update your mental or support group. Stay away of your progress as this will help you to adjust if you go off track and will motivate you to keep moving towards your goal.

May Allah give me and you the tawfiq to implement these tips.

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
