Entering Jannah is the ultimate goal of any Muslim. Nothing comes close it. Our Iman is boosted many folds when we read such Hadith that tells us about the bounties the dwellers of Jannah will enjoy. One such beautiful hadith that shows the mercy of our exalted lord and our imperfection is mentioned below. It is among my favorite hadith for it increases your love for Allah many folds and you cannot resist talking to him and asking him for Jannah too. So here goes:

It is narrated by Abu Hurairah (RA) about the last man who will enter jannah

… And there will remain one man who will be facing the (Hell) Fire and will say,

Man : ‘O Lord! It’s (Hell’s) vapor has Poisoned and smoked me and its flame has burnt me; please turn my face away from the Fire.’

...He will keep on invoking Allah till...

Allah says ‘Perhaps, if I give you what you want), you will ask for another thing?’

The man will say, ‘No, by Your Power, I will not ask You for anything else.’

...Then Allah will turn his face away from the Fire...

The man will say, ‘O Lord, bring me near the gate of Paradise.’

Allah will say ‘Didn’t you promise not to ask for anything else? Woe to you, O son of Adam ! How treacherous you are!’

...The man will keep on invoking Allah till...

Allah will say, ‘But if I give you that, you may ask me for something else.’

The man will say, ‘No, by Your Power. I will not ask for anything else.’

He will give Allah his covenant and promise not to ask for anything else after that. So Allah will bring him near to the gate of Paradise, and when he sees what is in it, he will remain silent as long as Allah will, and then

He will say, ‘O Lord! Let me enter Paradise.’

Allah will say, ‘Didn’t you promise that you would not ask Me for anything other than that? Woe to you, O son of Adam ! How treacherous you are!’ On that,

the man will say, ‘O Lord! Do not make me the most wretched of Your creation,’

and will keep on invoking Allah till Allah will smile and when Allah will smile because of him, then He will allow him to enter Paradise, and when he will enter Paradise,

He will be addressed, ‘Wish from so-and-so.’

...He will wish till all his wishes will be fulfilled...

then Allah will say, All this (i.e. what you have wished for) and as much again therewith are for you.’

Abu Huraira added: That man will be the last of the people of Paradise to enter (Paradise). … I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, ‘This is for you and ten times as much.’

[Hadith: Bukhari]

So even the last man who will enter jannah will be blessed with all his wishes Allah’s smile and 10 times more then what he wished for. SubhanAllah! still we think with our hard work we can make this world a paradise, when this world is just a gateway to it. So do good and ask Allah for his mercy, pleasure and Jannah.

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
