Ten Ways to Avoid Punishment Due to Sins

All praise be to Allah.

Each sin comes with the punishment and Allah will hold everyone accountable for what he/she did in this world and in his life. The punishment for a sin that a believer commits can be removed by following 10 ways.

1. Repentance: Seeking sincere repentance from the Allah aza wajal from the sin that a person committed, so Allah accepts his repentance, the one who repents is like the one who has no sin.

2. Istigfar: He who seeks forgiveness for the sins, so Allah forgives him.

The difference between the repentance and istigfar is that repenting means never to repeat the sin whereas istigfar means to acknowledge the wrongdoings and being ashamed of them in front of Allah, it means asking Allah for forgiveness.

3. Doing good deeds: Doing more good deeds erases sins and bad things committed by a person as good deeds erase the bad ones.

4. His believing brothers pray for him: The believing brothers of the sinners when praying for him for his sins during his life or death help him get sins removed.

5. A reward of Good deeds: Believing brothers when they [ask Allah] to bestow on him as a gift from the reward for their deeds, with which Allah benefits him.
6. Intercession: On the day of resurrection, Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) intercession, by the will of Allah will help a person from his sins.

7. Paying with trials and tests: Allah tests the person with hardships which expiates his sins.

8. Punishment of Grave: Allah tests a person in the grave(al-Barzakh), the life in a grave between the day of death and the day of Judgement. The punishment of Grave will remove sins from the person.

9. Tests on the Day of Judgement: On the day of Judgement, Allah tests the person which expiates his sins.

10. Allah has mercy on him: Allah simply forgives him as he is most merciful and has mercy on those whom he wishes.

Whoever, then, is missed by these ten cannot blame anyone but himself.

And Allah knows best.

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
