Learning From Mistakes – Tips and Lessons

How often do you make mistakes?

Can you keep count?

From the little errors to the not-so little ones. Mistakes can be hard to deal with, leaving you with painful memories and reminders. They can make you feel ashamed of yourself and want to hide away from the world – especially friends and loved ones.

But mistakes are an inevitable part of our daily lives.

Embarrassing little mistakes can happen when putting together a simple meal and bigger ones while putting together a term paper. Whether it seems like a negligible type or one that stops your breathe and embarrasses you out of your skin; you can turn such mistakes into learning opportunities.

Opportunities to grow and change and become better. Rather than turn them into dark, scary road blocks.

The first step is to accept that mistakes are human; and you can never become perfect. Seek instead excellence in whatever you do. And with this awareness and acceptance comes the opportunity to embrace the lessons found in each mistake. You can grow stronger and wiser from each experience, no matter how little.

We love beauty in its perfect form, from art to architecture and technology. But life is far from perfect. We get crooked results and less than perfect outcomes in many things we do.

This world was created with imperfections. But, even with that realization of an imperfect world we get angry and frustrated from the countless mistakes we make.

Jannah (Paradise) is the only perfect place, and way beyond our imagination. Your goal should be to survive through the temporary imperfections so as to get to the perfect and eternal destination.

Don’t lose your sleep over what cannot be undone. Move ahead with focus over what needs to be done.

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. 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


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
