You Have to Develop This Amazing Habit

There was something very special about Abu Hanifah. We said he was very generous. He had a habit, a very special habit and I really wish I would hear of someone in our times who actually does what Abu Hanifah did. Every time he spent any money on his family or on himself he would give out for the sake of Allah similar amount. Like he brought his family groceries and it cost him two hundred dollars let's say, he would take another two hundred dollars and give it for the sake of Allah.

Let's say he brought his son a thobe, it cost twenty dollars he would give out twenty dollars anything he spent on himself or his family, he would give a similar amount for the sake of Allah and that actually reminds me of Ali Ibn Husain Ibn Ali (RA). The grandson of Ali Ibn Talib the son of Al Hussan (RA). Imaam Az Zahabi talks about him in the collection of biographies. He says: He split his money between himself and Allah. What does that mean? A few times in his life he would estimate his wealth. How much it is and he was very rich.
Ali the (grandson) of Ali Ibn Talib & Ali Ibn Hussain was very rich so a few times during his life he would assess how much is my wealth so if it was a hundred thousand, he would take half of it and give it for the sake of Allah and keep half of it. There were actually a few people in the history of Islam who lived that lifestyle so they would take a few times in their life, they will assess their wealth, they would take half of it and they would give it for sake of Allah (subhanho wa taala)

Abu Hanifah would do something similar, anything he spent on himself or his family he would give out similar amount for the sake of Allah (subhana WA Ta'ala).

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
