Making time for your spouse is one of the leading factors towards maintaining a healthy marriage. In this fast paced world, a persons scheduled is packed with activities. Whether a person has children or not, time becomes scarce. First a person schedules time to pray then fills his day with work, driving the kids places, commuting home, working out, cooking dinner, a little relaxing time and before you know it, its time to go back to bed for the same routine the next day.

Life becomes hectic and priorities seem to shift around a lot and it’s usually your spouse that takes a backseat to everything else, usually becoming the lowest priority. As one becomes older and the relationship has been going on for a number of years, one realizes the importance of spending time with your spouse and the key role it plays in your personal spiritual, mental and physical health but also in the health of your relationship.

One way to increase the time you are spending with your wife while not adding anything to your schedule is to enjoy the time that you have to be with her. You don’t have to love going shopping with her but spending that time and making it an opportunity to talk to her an enjoy her company can change the dynamics of the whole trip to the mall.

Perhaps you don’t have the same hobbies, you may enjoy reading while she may enjoy cooking, however using this opportunity as time to develop your relationship can be very helpful to your relationship. Use the time she is cooking as an opportunity to talk with her, be in her presence, tell her how much you appreciate her. Making small sacrifices on your part will go a long way.

Remember that the person you married is a multi-dimensional, caring, intuitive, deeply thoughtful and feeling woman, and you are blessed to have her as a companion in your life, a true gift from Allah Almighty. Learn to appreciate and respect her thoughts and decisions. Learn to listen to her true thoughts and ideas. As you spend more time with her, your respect, love, admiration and appreciation for each other will grow. This will result in a more fruitful and happy marriage. One in which one truly achieves what Allah subhana wa ta’alaa says in the Quran that a marriage is supposed to bring: tranquility.

Marriage is a journey, a journey together upon which there will be many obstacles. However, the joy and tranquility that a marriage focused on Akhira brings is truly satisfying. Keep working on increasing the love, appreciation and admiration between you and your spouse and watch as Allah places tranquility and happiness in your relationship, in'sha'Allah.

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.

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
