Social Productivity: Who Wants to Be a Muslim Millionaire?

Have you ever wondered how YOU can make a real difference and be socially productive during Ramadan? Why not start with Islamic Relief’s Make a Million campaign?

Everyone wants to be a Muslim Millionaire, and here’s the SECRET FORMULA on how to gain a reward worth millions this Ramadan. GIVE in charity and be socially productive. It is shocking and deeply saddening that 1 in 8 people will go to bed hungry every night, despite the fact that there is enough food in this world for everyone. Ramadan is an optimal time to feel and step into the shoes of those who go hungry around the world. It is also the blessed month with the opportunity to practise the many Prophetic traditions, one of which was to be extra generous and give in charity as the Prophet (pbuh) would do, even to the extent that of borrowing borrowed money to help others!

It is no doubt that the Muslim Ummah is going through a challenging time, one of adversity and where millions are suffering from a lack of food – literally on the brink of starvation from war, natural disasters, conflict among other causes. But people don’t need to live in this dire state in the 21st century because there is enough food for everyone in the world. In a bid to follow the Prophet’s example, we should feel it is our moral obligation and duty to contribute whatever we can. Islamic Relief’s Food Solutions ensure that some of the world’s most deprived can have access to food this Ramadan. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) advised us with the following words: “Save yourself from Hell-fire even by giving half a date-fruit in charity.” [Bukhari]

This is where the Make a Million Campaign comes in!

For some of you, making a ‘million’ probably seems like an unthinkable number (it does for me!) But when we focus on the resources we have, place faith into action and mobilise our friends, family and colleagues to take part in this excellent initiative and give whatever they can, then making a million does not seem so hard! The Prophet (pbuh) said: “Wealth does not diminish by giving Sadaqah (charity).” [Muslim]

Therefore our charity is actually a source of manifold reward. In some sense, it teaches us that even the small amount of charity we give with a sincere heart can equate to the million dollar!

Here are the simple steps to join the Make a Million campaign:

1. LIKE the Make a Million Facebook Page.

2. Find 10 FRIENDS who will raise £100 then get them to find another 10 friends!

3. SHARE the page with your friends & family via Twitter, Facebook.

4. Come up with CREATIVE ways to fundraise! (A cake bake for iftar? Sell some unwanted clothes? Do a sponsored silence?)

5. FUNDRAISE the hundreds which will multiply to help us reach a MILLION.

6. Donate ONLINE here.

7. THANK everyone who participates with a ‘Thank You for helping us Make a Million’ text.

Be socially productive this Ramadan by taking on the Make a Million challenge and helping us reach our target so we can feed the world’s poorest.

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
