How many people were in the straight path but eventually deviated away from Allah?

I hope you’re not that person and I hope you’re not a person when you see a sinner sinning, you make fun of them and you mock them while you think you’re so holy and you’ll always live upon the Straight Path.

There was a man who was known to be practicing at least externally speaking, performed Umrah, used to pray and he used to be his Islamic teacher right hand in everything that he does.

After several years, and I’m telling you this story because I witnessed it personally, heard it with my own ears and seen it with my eyes, that brother kept leaving Islam and the teaching of Allah and the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to the extent that one time he was passing by a poster that has the Name of Allah on it. As he was passing by, he looked at it and said: “Who put my name here!” We seek Allah’s refuge from such an attitude.

There are many lessons that can be taken from this story but I want to take one lesson which you never know where will you die, and how will you die, and at what state will your heart will be at. We shall not take Allah’s guidance to us for granted.

When Umm Salamah, the Prophet’s wife and the Mother of the Believers, was asked what was the most common dua that the Prophet has ever said, she replied:

“The most dua I have ever heard the Prophet (peace be upon him) make was:

“O turner of the hearts hold my heart steadfast upon your deen.”

This is a dua of a man who was promised the highest level of Paradise, the man who was promised that Allah will forgive and overlook any shortcoming or any sin that he has done in the past, had he ever done any, and every shortcoming that he will ever do in the future is already forgiven.

With all of this, he still made that dua asking Allah to hold his heart steadfast upon the deen.

So brothers and sisters, what about the poor people like me and you who sin day and night?

We ask Allah to allow us to be steadfast and the only time me and you are to be confident we’re going to Jannah (as narrated in sahih Muslim) is when the angel of death comes right by your head and is about to extract your soul from your body and the angel of death says to you:

{O safe and believing soul return back to your Lord while you are pleased with Him and He is pleased with you. And enter among my righteous slaves and enter my Paradise.} (Quran 89: 27-30)

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
