Racial Inequality; 4 Ways We Can Help Fight Against Racism

We all sat in horror watching a police man kneel on George Floyd’s neck for over 8 minutes, while he was pleading for his life. Many of us take for granted going about our daily business, living life, going for a jog, going for a coffee without worrying about being stopped. However, this is not the case if your skin colour is black. Racial inequality affects every aspect of our black brothers and sisters lives.

The Quran tells us clearly that we should stand firmly against injustice whether it be against ourselves, our families or relatives. There are many things we can do in order to stand with our black brothers and sisters.

1. Learn – we need to ask ourselves what are we doing to continue to educate ourselves? How are we filling in the gaps that are missing from our education?

2. Reflect – what are our own personal biases and prejudices? How can we change them?

3. Challenge racism within your circles – we are in a unique position to influence those closest to us. We might have difficult conversations but we should speak up when we see or hear racism.

4. Take actions – if we see any kind of racism happen, don’t walk away from it try and support the person on the receiving end. Volunteer for an anti-racism initiative. Hold individuals and organizations to account and ask what they are doing to eradicate systemic racism.

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
