Never Despair! Allah’s Mercy Is Always There

“When Allah created creation, He wrote words that were placed at His throne. They said, “My mercy will prevail over my anger.” (Al-Bukhari)

Knowing that the mercy of Allah will prevail over His anger is reason never to lose hope. When we are overcome, we should remember that all is never lost.

If you ever think there is no point in living because you have reached a dead end, committed too many mistakes and are doomed, you are in fact shutting out an ocean of forgiveness and second chances. It is all there for the taking. So long as we breathe, the way ahead can be filled with light and mercy.

Never think that it is too late to change. Our mistakes, no matter how many or how huge, are never beyond the mercy of Allah. We are small and insignificant, so it is nothing for Allah to forgive us. In fact, He loves to do so.

Only with His mercy can we amount to anything, and that is why we should not be too overwhelmed to the point of despair by our own flaws. Yes, His anger is there, but His mercy is much closer.
We complicate our life stories by over-thinking and making assumptions of Allah. Sometimes, we rush to judge ourselves instead of leaving the judging to Allah. His mercy is there for those who ask. Only in Him can we find completion, only in Him can we find fulfillment.

With that humbling knowledge, we can always remember to hope for better and continue striving. When we are troubled by our thoughts toward Allah, when we are tempted to run away from Him because we are afraid, we should remember these words.

Just as Allah favors mercy over anger, so we should aspire to exemplify mercy in whatever way we can. Mercy and forgiveness are better than anger and revenge. Sometimes we think that forgiveness and making peace in the face of provocation is a sign of weakness.

Rather, mercy, peacefulness, and forgiveness are indications of inner strength. We should not judge harshly or condemn, but rather rush to pardon as we hope to be pardoned one day. We should not hesitate to grant others the same mercy and forgiveness that we wish for ourselves.

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
