Chapter Al Mulk – 6 Lessons for Personality Development

The verses in chapter Al-Mulk (67: 1-30) are short and digestible. It is a great place to begin to connect with the Quran. Not for speed reading purposes, but to grow and transform yourself inside and out.

Reflections / Lessons

1. REMEMBER YOUR BLESSINGS

All ‘blessings, barakah, increase’ comes from Allah, Most Exalted is He. He is the Most Blessed source of blessings.

2. YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE

Just as with other pairs created by Allah, lifelessness lends meaning and purpose to life. This universe and entire life within is not without meaning. Rather, it is like a testing period for man to face trails – the results and accompanying consequence which will come in the next world – after death.

3. REFLECT

Ponder over the perfection and harmony in Allah’s creations; no flaws or irregularities exist. Also look and reflect at the wonders of natural disasters around you; the wonders of the birds freely flying.

Allah is in control of everything;

He has power over everything;

And is Watchful over you and everything you do;

He is in complete control of His Kingdom.

4. SUSTENANCE AND TOTAL PROTECTION COMES FROM ALLAH

He alone is the source of all sustenance – material as well as spiritual. He gave you many bounties and its your duty to use them in ways pleasing to Him.

5. REMEMBER DEATH

The ultimate goal of our existence is the Hereafter. So the remembrance of death should be a motivator for you to do the best you can, while you can. Always strive for the best of both worlds – don’t deny or forget one for the other.

6. AIM FOR EXCELLENCE

Aim for quality (excellence), not quantity in your deeds. Work hard to keep your heart clean always. Because your Creator is fully aware of everything you do, say, believe and think.

ACTION POINTS (YOUR TO – DO)

Assess the quality of your deeds always [check yourself].

Be humble because your entire life is a test; and a humbling reality.

Take out time to reflect constantly – you have so much around you and within you to ponder over. Such reflections will serve to motivate you in life.

Ask Allah without reserve. Seek His mercy and aid knowing He is the ultimate source of all good. He is your army to assist you in the face of all problems and to sustain you.

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
