Allah Looks at Your Heart Rather Than Your Looks.

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace, and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, Allah does not look at your appearance or wealth, but rather he looks at your hearts and actions.”

The beauty that one achieves by outer adornments and clothes is bound to vanish. If a man thinks that he is wealthy, wears good clothes and looks pleasing, all this will increase his value in peoples eyes for a short time because the outer beauty is bound to vanish. Nothing in this world is permanent. These temporary worldly materials end and hence the value of a man is lost with them!

But if one focuses on the inner beauty, the beauty of heart and soul than that will stay with him if all else fails. It is the beauty of heart and soul that gives value to man in peoples eyes and most importantly, in Allah's eyes. The inner beauty can be seen in one's character, morals, love, ethics, knowledge, and attitude. This beauty increases as we grow old.
In the eyes of Allah, the outer beauty is of such little importance, its the heart that matters. If a person is wealthy with good looks and an ill heart than he is Nothing in front of Allah but if a person has nothing but has a good and sound heart that he is loved more by Allah. Allah looks at our intentions, our thoughts not our clothes and wealth.

However, this doesn't mean that one should not care about how he looks. It is important. As a matter of fact, in Islam, we are required to look good and modest but not at the cost of the state of our heart. Also, the condition of our heart is much preferred and it is this condition that will take us to hell or heaven. Our outer condition is meant for this Duniya but the condition of our heart is what is important in the hereafter.

To sum up, we can say that man should not be engaged in outer beauty very much; he should give importance to inner beauty, and he should want the maturity that will last throughout life.

May Allah guide us all.

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
