5 Valuable Pieces of Advice for the Youth

Beloved youth! The first piece of advice I have for you is the advice that Allah Almighty has delivered to us all:

1- HAVE TAQWA

If we are to be conscious of Allah, conscious of our duty unto Allah, the do’s and don’ts, and we ourselves strive to abstain from prohibition and to fulfill the instructions of Allah, it becomes much easier for us to deliver the message with a lot of passion.

Whereas if we ourselves are not too regular with our prayers, or not too fulfilling of the duties that Allah has placed on our shoulders, it becomes more difficult for us to convey that message in a convincing manner.

2- RESPECT YOURSELF AND OTHERS

Secondly, respect yourself, respect everyone around you, respect the fact that you are a Muslim. And understand that those who are around you are always in search of goodness.

And the human mind is extremely inquisitive. So if you keep trying in a very polite way and if you are a person who has wisdom and tact and you understand the norms of the people and you abstain from insulting others, it will have a greater impact than if you were to just go out and swear people, insult them, belittle them, make them feel like they are very far out of the fold of Islam…

3- TAKE KNOWLEDGE FROM SCHOLARS

If we are to visit the scholars of Islam, who are promoting the truth once in a while and learn from them, I think people will notice whom we are affiliated to in a greater way and that itself would also be a means of Dawah.

What this would mean is: if we are to affiliate with the correct people as far as possible, and even if we have had meetings perhaps, or we have had associations with those who may not be up to scratch according to what we would believe, we would still be able to clarify such matters and we would still be able to leave a straight line and inshallah a message that will be loud and clear.

Why I say this is because, as we progress in life, people look to us they see what we do. They see who we mix with, they see how we associate, and they learn a lesson from it.

So, that association is extremely important. As we grow, we may have to associate with those sometimes who may be searching for the truth in a way that if we mixed with them, it would help them find it. 4- GO THROUGH THE SEERAH OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PBUH)

Study the way he treated others, the way he spread the message, the way the Dawah at that particular time was delivered. That was the most pristine way.

If we are to follow his system and his style and understand what he did, we will become better people.

5- IMPROVE YOURSELF

The last piece I leave you with is always improve yourself. Don’t ever think for a moment, “I know everything!”

Don’t be a person who cannot accept correction, or who cannot accept some form of rectification.

It’s important for us to know, we will be corrected. We will have to correct ourselves no matter what level you are on, we will learn new things, we must be on the lookout.

We must be searching, hunting, and making an effort to learn more and to learn new things, to increase our knowledge and this is why we always say:

“O you who has bestowed Ibrahim with knowledge, bestow me with knowledge; o you who has bestowed Suleiman with the understanding, bestow me with understanding as well.”

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

MUSLIMS MOURN ALI BANAT - THE MAN ‘GIFTED WITH CANCER’

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

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
