Ababeel story is described by the Quran in Surah Al-Fil, Many armies tried to conquer Makkah but indeed Allah is the sole protector of this sacred place.

King of Yemen and Ethiopia, his name was Abraha. He made a Church in the city called Sanaa but when he got to know that people are traveling miles away to perform Umrah and Hajj and do Tawaf he got jealous.

Abraha wanted people to make Hajj at Sanaa. But this made Muslims of Quraish furious, and Muslims disowned whatever he was saying which made Abraha go crazy as Muslims had kicked his idea of performing Hajj in his Church.

To take revenge on Muslims, he builds an army having a huge number of Elephants, and charge the army towards Makkah. He had an Elephant whose name was Mahmood, it was huge and Abraha was riding it himself. After reaching Makkah, his attack was successful furthermore, the camel of Abdul Muttalib (RA) was also caught by his Army.

Abdul Muttalib (RA) is the grandfather of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

At that time Abdul Muttalib (RA) was the leader of Makkah and the custodian of Holy Mosque. He went to Abraha’s army and asked for the camel they captured, after listening this Abraha was very shocked that they are here to attack Kaaba and Abdul Muttalib (RA) is just asking for Camel. They give Abdul Muttalib (RA) his camel, and he left. Before leaving Abdul Muttalib (RA) told Abraha that Allah has promised to protect his house (Kaaba) so he will protect it.

After coming back, Abdul Muttalib (RA) told his nation to hide in caves. Abdul Muttalib (RA) went to the door of Holy Kaaba and make dua to protect the people in caves.

Next day, Abraha’s army was ready to attack the Kaaba but a very strange thing happened that none of the Elephants stood up!

Then a flock of Ababeel came, they were sent by Allah and they had free gavels each, two in their claws and one in their beak.

They flew over the army of Abraha and threw gravels on his army. These tiny objects, by the command of Allah, became so lethal that it piece their bodies of that army. The whole army was in shambles as they wanted to save their own lives, but Allah had commanded that each gravel will fall onto each person, and just in a moment the whole army was dead.

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.

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.
