10 Things Every Muslim Can Do to Make a Difference.

As Muslims, we constantly need to understand the real meaning of submitting ourselves to the Allah’s will and practice the essence of humanity taught to us by the one who was sent to us as a mercy to the world our beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). So in view of all the variable that affect most of our lives in the modern world. Here are 10 easy things that every Muslim family can do so that we can contribute to the betterment of ourselves and get closer to the all mighty.

1. Sponsor an orphan: - before anything else, there are hungry children everywhere who have needs right now. There are several reputable programs that offer orphan sponsorship at a very low monthly cost. We know that we can afford to do it. Supporting an orphan can make us closer to the Prophet (PBUH) in paradise.

2. Go to the mosque for salat five times every day: - it is must for every Muslims to go to Musjid for salat regularly 5 times every day. This will help us and our family makes the Mosque a center for activity and our children will develop ties to the community. If we don’t like the way the Mosque is operated, we have an opportunity to make it better by getting involved. If someone lives in a remote area that does not have a Mosque then pray together at home with all the family members.

3. Send your children to an Islamic school: - if your children’s go to public school, and there is no Islamic school nearby, then make sure they either get into some Sunday school program, or if the local Islamic center doesn’t run it fight, then pool together with some likeminded families and run your own program at somebody’s house every Saturday or Sunday and conduct it the way you think it should be done. This is the minimum requirement for not losing our children to materialism and other social ills.

4. Buy at least one book, audio or video per month: - people who write or produce for the Muslim market have a very difficult time sustaining themselves. That must change if you want to see the wonderful product for ourselves and our children. Just buy one product per month. Collectively, this can encourage our creative and talented brothers and sisters to do more.
5. Become a host family to new Muslims: - the convert experience is basically one of isolation and loneliness. You would be surprised to know that most converts are often ignored by the people in the Islamic centers. Beyond a few pleasantries and handshakes, they are usually never made to feel welcome or accepted. They are often cut off from their non-Muslims friends and relatives so they are doubly vulnerable. A new convert should be invited into various people’s home for dinner as often as possible and especially on Islamic holidays. Get together with others and make sure you all put the new convert on your guest list for any sort of gathering.

6. Keep extra Quran translations and literature handy: - You never know when you’ll find someone interested who wants to know more. Besides, our children’s may only understand mother language encourage the children to read the translation and discuss the Quran and Quran study materials.

7. Invite your neighbors to your home for dinner: - Most of the time we are so involved with our circle of friends, family and co-workers we forget the people who are living right next to us. To be good to your neighbors is an important example shown to us by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). So invite your neighbors to your house and get to know them and let them know you.

8. Make a big deal out of the family meal: - The concept of a family meal is a dying trend. The dinner table is not only a place of sustenance and family business but also a place for the teaching and passing on of our values. Manners and rules are subtly absorbed over the table. Family mealtime should communicate and sustain ideas that children will draw on throughout their lives.

9. Establish an Islamic culture in the home: - Make sure your family has cultural-type items in your home in abundance that are associated with Islam or Islamic culture. Everyone in your home should have prayer beads, prayer rugs, kufis, hijabs, gowns, posters, wall plaques, stickers, logo-shirts Islamic saver on the computers, and so on you want to establish an identity in your home. These things saw a small one but trust us it will make a difference.

10. Be a good example: - face it: human beings learn and form opinions primarily through modeling. In fact, we can’t avoid being an example and model to our family, children, friends, co-workers neighbors and even strangers, whether good or bad. Being a good example then is probably our most important job.

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.

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
