The Duniya Has Changed Us.

Read this beautiful event from the life of Umar (RA)

It is reported from Abdullah b. Umar:

When Umar ibn Al-Khattaab Radiallahu Anhu arrived in Al-Sham, he said to Abu Ubaydah: "Take us to your home."

- Abu Ubaydah Radiallahu Anhu asked Umar: "And what will you do with my home?"

- Umar replied: "Just take us there."

- Abu Ubaydah said: "You will only want to cry your eyes out over me when we arrive, but yes, I shall take you there..."

- So Umar entered his house and saw nothing by way of furnishings in it.

- Umar asked him: "Where are your things? I see nothing but rags, a water-skin, and a dish tray, and you are a governor in our Ummah! Do you even have any food in your house?!"
- So Abu Ubaydah went over to an old bucket and took out some scraps of food that he had left for his day..

- Upon seeing this, the Khalifah's (Umar) eyes began to instantly swell up with tears..

- Abu Ubaydah said to him: "I told you-you would cry your eyes out for me. O Commander of the Believers, sufficient for us all from the Dunya is what delivers us to our place of rest tonight."

- So Umar said to him: "This Dunya has changed us all Abu Ubaydah... all of us except for you..."

- [Abu Dawud, Kitab Al-Zuhd article 123, and others]

Mau Allah make us among such people.

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
