A Few Days Remaining - Connect With Quran This Ramadan

In so many ways, the month of Ramadan encourages us to engage more with the Qur’an.

The imams are reciting it for taraweeh prayers, the constant encouragement to read it throughout the day, you may even hear Qur’an playing instead of music at local Muslim restaurants and businesses.

This is no coincidence – Allah says that the month of the Ramadan is the month in which the Qur’an was initially sent, to serve as guidance for all people.

Allah also refers to the Qur’an as “the Healing Cure” and “the Light”.

This shows us that a relationship with this book can heal us from our ailments and can give us spirituality and insight when we can’t seem to make sense of anything.

How then does one benefit from a relationship with this book?

Read, recite, and reflect. Spend some time – any amount of time – to sit with the Qur’an.

Open it with humility and reverence, try your best to read and recite, and reflect on the meaning of what you’re reading.

Added bonus would be listening to some explanation of Qur’an through one of the many YouTube or podcast episodes.

Lastly, don’t stress about your reading not being as good as someone else that you know. Remember that the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) taught us that the one who struggles to read, and stumbled on their way, they get double the reward.

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
