Once a proud royal servant of some great king was marching through streets with a bunch of guards This royal servant was famous for his harsh and proud behavior. While he was going through a street he heard some kind of noise somewhere nearby. He ordered one of the guards to check out about the voice. Guard reported back presence of a saint in other street, who was raising spiritual slogans. He ordered the guards to bring the saint in front of him. As the saint reached there, that royal servant raised his head with proud and said arrogantly,” Don’t you know to be respectful and be quiet in presence of the royal servant! I was on the march and your voice displeased me too much, and why are you standing straight! Bow to me !”. The saint replied, “and why should I do so?”.

Royal servant replied in even arrogant tone ,” because I am the royal servant, the trusted most servant of the king, when he sleeps, I guard him, when he feels hungry, I get food for him, he trusts no one in his matters, else me”. Hearing his answer, saint smiled for a moment, and then said “and when you commit some mistake? “. Servant replied in a lower tone,” then I am punished hard”.

Saint said,” well! In such case, I must be more arrogant and proud as compared to you”. Servant questioned surprisingly, “why? “.

Saint said “because I’m servant of such a king who trusts me and I can trust him too, he guards me when I am sleeping, feeds me when I am hungry. And most important of all, if I commit some mistake, and I seek forgiveness from him, he never punishes me and accepts my apology.”

Servant got very much impressed and he asked saint,” could you get me a job there? “. And what saint said in reply was really remarkable, “then my friend, you must readily accept slavery of ALLAH, and submit your self completely to him. As he is the only one who … feeds me whenever I am hungry as HE is Al- RAZZAQ,

(He) Who has fed them against hunger, and has made them safe from fear. [Al-Quraish: 4]

Protects and guards me when I am sleeping, as HE is AL-MUHAYMIN and AL-HAFEEZ.

“He is Allah, besides whom there is no God, the King, the Holy One, Peace, the Giver of Security, the Guardian.” [Sūrah al-Hashr: 23].

And accepts my apology and forgives me, as HE is the AL-GHAFOOR, AL-REHMAAN, AL-RAHEEM.

“ “Say: O my Servants who have transgressed against their souls! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah: for Allah forgives all sins: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [Sûrah al-Zumar: 53]”

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
