ZIKR OF ALLAH IS REAL FOOD OF SOUL

21st century opened new doors to the mankind, put forward new questions, brought new trends and made many fads outdated. Out of many good things it brought, one is realizing the value of spirituality and emphasizing on how to achieve it.

Spirituality is the way to know yourself and your Creator. Zikr (remembrance of Allah) is one way to be spiritual and is the food for soul. It is the mode to remember God and praise Him. Our Creator Almighty Allah says about Zikr:

“Recite, [O Muhammad], what has been revealed to you of the Book and establish prayer. Indeed, prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing, and the remembrance of Allah is greater. And Allah knows that which you do.” (29:45)

Remembrance of Allah or the Zikr should be accompanied by the repentance on sins as it makes our ibadaat purer and us dearer to Allah Almighty.

No disease is terrible than the disease of soul. Every day we commit things that cannot be categorized as good. Sometimes we know where we went wrong and can identify the ways to repent on our sins. Yet there are times when we know something is wrong with us and we are being careless Muslims but we cannot find out what exactly went wrong and how to fix it. That restlessness and dissatisfaction should not lead us to frustration but to positivity as stated by dear Prophet Muhammad S.A.W:
“And follow up a bad deed with a good deed and it will wipe it out.”

Tirmidhi

Zikr of Allah is the easiest way to indulge ourselves into good deeds since it requires only pure intentions and sensitive heart. It not only provides us with opportunity to come closer to Allah but also helps us stay away from the bad and save the time that could be wasted otherwise. Hence it is safe to say Zikr is the key to satisfaction and success. Allah certifies it by saying:

“He has certainly succeeded who purifies himself and mentions the name of his Lord (do Zikr) and prays”. (87:14-15)

Brothers and Sisters:

Whose prescription to the diseases of soul can be more authentic and reliable than the Creator of Soul? He knows the causes, effects and cures of our frustrations, depression, and anxiety. And the simple solution He gives is………….

“Only in the remembrance of Allah will your hearts find peace” (13:28)

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

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.

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!

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

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
