Ibn Al-Qayyim said:

“The word sadness does not appear in the Quran except in the form of forbidding it or in the form of negating it.”

No Benefit

And the reason for this is because there is no benefit for having sadness in the heart.”

The most beloved thing to Satan is to make the believer sad to by taking him off track.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) sought refuge in Allah from sadness.

Ibn Al-Qayyim said:

“Sadness weakens the heart and diminishes determination and wanting to go forward. And there nothing more beloved to the Satan than the sadness of a believer.”

For this reason, be happy, optimistic, and think good about Allah.

Have trust in that Allah is able to do and depend on Him.

You’ll find happiness and pleasure in all situations.

Ibn Al-Qayyim also said:

“Don’t ruin your happiness with worry, and don’t ruin your mind with pessimism; don’t ruin your success with deception; and don’t ruin the optimism of others by destroying it; don’t ruin your day by looking back at yesterday.

If you think about your situation, you’ll find that Allah has given you things without asking. So have trust in Allah that He doesn’t prevent anything you want except there is goodness for you.”

You could be sleeping and the doors of heavens have been open with du’as have been made on your behalf, Subhanallah. Perhaps someone poor whom you helped or someone sad whom you brought joy, or someone passing by and you smiled at him, or someone is in distress and you removed it…

So don’t ever underestimate any good deeds.

One of the righteous predecessors said:

“I make dua to Allah for something I want and if He gives it to me, then I’m happy once, and if He doesn’t give it to me, then I happy ten times because the first is my choice and the second is Allah’s choice.”

As-Saadi said:

“Life is short, so don’t shorten it with worries grief and sadness.”

So be the owner of a heart that brings happiness and satisfaction.

May Allah make your times happy.

And may Allah forgive us all

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
