A Glorious Call to Prayer

We may hear this call 5 times a day, but have you ever genuinely listened to the adhan? Have you ever felt it as a call from Allah, The Mighty and Majestic, addressed to you specially as a Muslim? Indeed it is calling us to the noblest of worship, our salah, which brings barakah into our lives. This article will examine how the adhan holds wisdom and many keys to productivity that we may have overlooked.

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar (Allah is Greater/Greatest)

In His Call, Allah is telling you that He (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) is Greater than your work, your problems, and whatever else you’re preoccupied with. It is a reminder to leave what you’re doing and come worship your Lord. Let’s say your boss at work called you – would you say: “Wait, I will come when I finish later” or would you get up and respond immediately by going to his/her office? What about your Lord? And to Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) belongs the highest example. Allah is calling us to success, to fulfill our life’s purpose of worshipping Him – so why then do we choose the insignificant dunya matters whilst the success lies in truly in salah?

Ash-hadu an la ilaha ill Allah (I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped there is no other deity except Allah)_

Do you know what will happen if the shahadah are your last words before you die? You will get Jannah bi’ithnillah! The shahadah is really a gift, it is the statement that will eventually qualify us to leave the Hell Fire bi’ithnillah. When you genuinely and sincerely say this and undersand it, you realize Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala) is the Disposer of your affairs, your Master, your Lord, the One whom we should obey and please.
Ash-hadu anna Muhammad rasulAllah (I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah)

Think of the blessing of recognizing and following Allah’s Messenger (sal Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). He (sal Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) is our teacher and highest example, a manifestation of The Qur’an and beautiful characteristics. Witnessing that Muhammad (sal Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) is Allah’s Messenger includes obeying his orders, following his Sunnah, and striving to emulate his manners as best we can.

Hayya ‘ala as-salah Hayya ala as-salah (Come to prayer)

Do you do it? Do you live on prayers? Is prayer what charges your energy? Is it what gives you motive to go on? If not you have to stop and think. Prayer is a link to your Creator. When you pray, you are communicating with Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. Prayer is a great gift, a privilege. Taste the coolness of prayer, the sweetness of sujood.

Hayya ala al-fallah Hayya ala al-fallah (Come to Success)

Prayer is success, Islam is success. The key to Jannah is emaan and righteous deeds, and salaah embodies both of these. Those who pray are successful in this life and the next. If our prayers are in good order on the Day of Judgment, the rest that will follow will also be in good order bi’ithnillah. This is how important prayer is, salaat is the way to success.

The Sunnah of Repeating after the Adhan

It’s a sunnah to re-say the azan and to say the duaa’.

When we pray for peace upon the Prophet (sal Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), our salaams are conveyed to him and Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala) also grants us blessings.

So the next time we hear adhan in its glorious call, let’s listen, reflect and act in response to it.

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
