And whoever turns away from My remembrance – indeed, he will have a depressed life, and We will gather him on the Day of Resurrection blind. (Quran 20:124)

Remembrance of Allah is a great honor. That’s the goal in life. Allah pre-programmed that goal inside every single human being. But if you lose sight of that goal, it is like the huger inside you to fulfill that goal. Allah created you with that.

But when you appetite is not filled with healthy food, what you’d fill it with? If you don’t get the right meal, are you going to say “I’m not going to eat at all?”

No. When a person is starving and there is no food of their preference, or there is no healthy food, there is even filth, barks of trees will the human being still start chewing when it comes to that? They will.

When you lose sight of Allah and that no longer is your goal, then necessarily you will find a replacement. It is necessarily to have something you aspire towards. That is the mission of your life.

The one who has found Allah, what happens to them?

Say, “Indeed, my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah , Lord of the worlds. (Quran 6:162)

It’s very simple for them. The one who really found Allah, their life is for Allah, their sacrifice is for Allah, their life and death is now for Allah, the way they live, the way they eat, the way they sleep, what they want to do with their life, their long-term goals, their short-term goals, what they can do with their kids, why they are getting education, where they are going to work… everything is now for Allah, that is their goal.

But for the one who hasn’t that goal, they have to find another role. And in all times, they’re used to idols, they used to be in other religions, you find some other gods…

But in our times, it become far more pathetic… now you have someone who is obsessed with their body and they’re working out 18 hours a day, it’s their only goal in life to just getting buffer and buffer, stay on top, keep in shape.

Their life has become about money… you meet people who can’t talk about anything except their work, “I work in this company, I do this business…”

And the moment they lose their job, they become suicidal because that’s all they’ve ever thought about, that’s all they ever did in their life, that becomes their goal.

For some people their goal is their children, they live for their children, they do everything for their children, day and night they think about their children, there is no other thought running in their minds, there is no other goal before them than their children. That is all they run after.

When you don’t find Him, you will find something else and you will run after it, you will give your life to it, and there is no exception among human beings.

And today it could be even a slacker. You’re going to ask me “what about a slacker?” You know those kids that play 20 hours of video games a day and don’t get off the couch, what is their goal? It is to entertain themselves… that is their ultimate goal, that’s what they want to reach, they’re working hard to attain it everyday.

These are the psychological implications of understanding too late.

It is easy to say Allah is one, but is He one in my life? Is He the one for me? Or do I have some other one that I’m running after or some other thing that I put before myself?

Allah asked this question rhetorically. He says:

What deluded you from your gracious master? (Quran 82:6)

What was so important to you that you ran after?

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
