Don’t become depressed to the degree that you begin to question Allah. People say: “Why is Allah testing me? Why? He doesn’t like me”

Well if that’s the case, He didn’t like anyone on earth because everyone is tested. Even Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), who is the most beloved to Allah, the best of creation, the highest of all, he’s been through more tests than you and I, and it’s a sign of the love of Allah.

So, one might ask: how is it the sign of the love of Allah? Let me tell you. So a man is born into a wealthy home, he’s lucky, he’s powerful, he has authority, he’s got everything from a young age at school, he’s the big shot, he graduates, he comes to university, he passed, he got degree, he become whatever, a big title before his name, everything is proper… but guess what… he’s never tasted hardship.

So Allah says my worshipper, I love you too much, I need you to get closer to Me before you die, you need to come closer to Me, you need to cut your bad ways, your habits, you need to cut your previous life… so what I will do… I will inflict you with something really big, so you go to car crush… the car was damaged beyond repair and you were saved, your family members were saved. That’s test number one.

Nothing happened to your body but something happened to your wealth. It’s called the loss in wealth. And you’ve been saved from bodily harm.

So, you woke up and said Alhamdulillah, O Allah I thank you.

You have one of a few ways of looking at it. People say “o, that’s good, these air bags saved me” “This car of mine Rolls Royce was big enough, it smashed but it was ok everything is fine. It’s good I’m happy” and you go back to your bad ways. Allah says no, We love you enough to give you something else, because you still haven’t come to us.

The second way of doing things to say Alhamdulillah.. you rush to majid and pray 2 units and you thank Allah, you say Allah thank you for having saved me and my family… o Allah, my bad ways, my habits… I will quit them… I will not miss my prayers from today.

This is why when you have a test in your life, ask yourselves, has your life changed positively? If yes, it was not a punishment. It was just a tapping from the love of Allah.

But if you become despondent, depressed, you begin to question Allah, you hate it, you become more arrogant, nothing has happened in terms of positive change in your life. It might just be a punishment, wait for another. You haven’t yet changed so next time you lose your son. Now what happens? You’re stressed, your mind is not in its place, you start praying, asking question, you start wondering what happened?

Allah says, “look first time you didn’t turn to us, we ‘re turning you now.” That was a gift of Allah.

This is why sometimes the death of a close family member is our ticket to paradise. It’s just a wake up. It’s a reality check Allah is telling you, hang on, you are in the fast lane regarding the dunya, we want you to get on to the fast lane regarding the hereafter.

So this is how we’re going to do it. It’s Allah’s plan.

I’m only giving you examples. Allah is the only one who chooses what’s going to happen in your life.

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
