Praise be to Allah.

The jinn are accountable just as humans are; those of them who obey Allah will enter Paradise, and those who disobey Him will enter Hell. The words of the Quran are addressed to them too and they will be brought to account on the Day of Resurrection for their deeds, as Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And they have invented a kinship between Him and the jinn, but the jinn know well that they have indeed to appear (before Him) (i.e. they will be called to account).”

[37:158]. Mujahid said: They will be brought to account, as it says in Jam’ial-Bayan by al-Tabari. Imam al-Bukhari (may Allah have mercy on him) included a chapter in his Saheeh entitled “Mention of the jinn and their reward and punishment”, in which he quoted some verses, including this verse, and he quoted the tafseer (commentary) of Mujahid (may Allah have mercy on him).

Al-‘Allamah al-Sa‘adi (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

i.e., these mushrikeen (polytheists) claimed there was a relationship between Allah and the jinn, as the claim that the angels were the daughters of Allah and that their mothers were the daughters of the masters among the jinn. But in fact, the jinn know that they will be brought to account before Allah, to be rewarded or punished, and if there were any relationship between them and Him, that would not be the case.


As for how the deeds of the jinn are recorded and whether their situation in this regard is like that of humans, for each of whom Allah has appointed two angels to record his deeds and watch over his actions, that is a matter of the unseen which Allah has not told us about. The verses and hadeeths (prophetic narrations) that speak of that have to do with humans, not jinn, as Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“O man! What has made you careless about your Lord, the Most Generous?

Who created you, fashioned you perfectly, and gave you due proportion.

In whatever form He willed, He put you together.

Nay! But you deny ad‑deen (i.e. the Day of Recompense).

But verily, over you (are appointed angels in charge of mankind) to watch you,

Kiraaman (Honourable) Kaatibeen —writing down (your deeds),

They know all that you do.” [82:6-12].

And He says (what means):

“And indeed We have created man, and We know what his ownself whispers to him. And We are nearer to him than his jugular vein (by Our Knowledge).

(Remember) that the two receivers (recording angels) receive (each human being), one sitting on the right and one on the left (to note his or her actions).

Not a word does he (or she) utter but there is a watcher by him ready (to record it).” [50:16-18].

So knowledge of the jinn remains with the Creator alone, in addition to the fact that there is little benefit in pursuing knowledge of such matters that have nothing to do with belief and on which no actions are based.

And Allah knows best.

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
