This is the Character of a True Believer

Allah (subhana WA Ta'ala) had created us in ways and forms that there are moments in which we are happy and there are moments in which were sad. All goes back to this heart how happy this heart will be and how happy this heart can be and that's why Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was amazed to the character of the believer.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) says: I am amazed to the character of the believer...all his matches are good for him...if something good befalls him will be good for him and he'll be happy, he's happy for it something good came from Allah (Subhan Wa Talaa'a) to me I am happy and this is something understandable by everyone then the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) says the amazing part is and if something harmful befalls that believer, he has patience for the sake of Allah and this one makes me to be so amazed from the believer and this character that he's happy when something good comes from Allah to him so he thanks Allah in return and when something bad or harmful befalls him so he has patience for the sake of Allah. This particular character is a character and only a character for the believer that made the Prophet (peace be upon him) to say I am amazed.

You don't see that character in anyone else besides the believer. You don't see that character when someone Allah gives him or provides him or sustains him or something good he says Alhamdulillah, this is from the pleasure of Allah and when something harmful befalls him he says Alhamdulillah I will have patience. This is only a character of a believer.
Anyone who has no imaan or anyone who is not from amongst the believers and when something good comes to him he says this is from me, from my own sweat, from my own hardships, from my own sacrifice and when something harmful comes on him he blames everyone on the surface of this world including Allah except himself. Yes this is the character of who? This is the character of the non-believer.

When something good comes to him from Allah (azzawajal) he might thank everyone except Allah (subhanawa taala) and who sustained him (Allah)... Who gave him (Allah)... Who provided for him (Allah) and when something harmful comes to him even if it's from his own hand, he blames everyone including Allah except himself.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) says that the character of the believer amazes me. Something good comes to him (Alhamdulillah) this is from Allah and something harmful comes to him, he has the patience for the sake of Allah and waits for his rewards from Allah.

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
