This One Thing Can Change Your Life

You know in this life we want certain things, you want to have... young man wants to get married or a woman wants to get married, you want to have a good job, you want to have a house, you want your family to be okay, you want to provide for your children, you want to give them a good education, you want to get your kids married off, there are things we have priorities in our life, there are things that are on your mind right now you've been thinking about it for the last month, the last year, the last two years.

There is stuff that you want to accomplish in your life. Allah teaches us in his book that there's one thing if you can get it in this life, it's more valuable than everything else, everything else will be okay, if you have this one thing and that one thing is a closeness to Allah, is being good with Allah and truly developing a connection and a bond with Him. The problem with people is when life is good and only good for a lot of people they get distracted. You go from a video game to a movie, to checking social media status, to hanging out with friends, to a restaurant, to sleep, Allah is out of the picture.

There's no love left, it's just you chilling that's all there is and then times get tough and the friends aren't there and the game doesn't feel good anymore and the car doesn't look good anymore because the health is gone. When the health is gone none of those things need anything anymore. All you care about is... I just want to be out of the hospital bed. If I could just walk again that would be fine and people are bringing you your favorite food, you don't want to eat it. People will wanna show you a movie, you don't wanna watch it. All these things that you lived for, everything that you went from A to B to C to D and all these things are gone and you don't care about none of them because of this one blessing of Allah diminish for you a little bit and then at that point, you have two option.

If you are of these people that are on the cliff on the edge you can start complaining to Allah, why do you do this to me? You just didn't like that I was so happy? or you could earn the greatest treasure you and I can ever earn and that is a humility and of closeness to Allah to actually realize even when I was healthy, even when I was doing well, everything was fine, I didn't realize even then that I was on life support, Allah was actually providing for me every moment.

I didn't earn anything on my own. None of it was something that I deserved and this is why Allah will say and Allah will describe you can't earn something, it's a favor from Allah whatever he has given you but you don't realize it at the time because it just comes easy but then you start begging Allah, and crying to Allah and praying Allah like you've never prayed before, feeling closer to Him like you've never felt before and then Allah heals you and you realize those moments you had when nobody was in the hospital room, you were just by yourself, crying to Allah were the sweetest moments of your entire life. Those are the few moments of your life that you actually had nothing between you and Allah and those might be the moment that saves you in the Aakhirah (hereafter) and that might have been the biggest gift Allah ever gave you is those moments.

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
