Ali Banat: The Gift of Cancer


Ali Banat: The Gift of Cancer



Ali Banat was diagnosed with cancer three years ago, and his life changed ever since. He has shared his journey with the Ummah online and we have witnessed his remarkable work over the years. Last night at Maghrib he returned to our almighty lord.  (Inna Lilah wa inna ilayhi raji’oun) We belong to Allah and to him we shall return.  (2:156) It gives us comfort as an ummah when a soul is taken during Ramadan. May Allah grant him the highest rank in Jannah, and give him a warm, and beautiful resting place for the good he brought to so many.

Reflections from Brother Ali Banat’s journey with cancer are frequently shared on his Instagram page.

He was diagnosed with 7 months to live, staring death in the face.

I am sure that most Muslims will have seen the very raw and heartbreaking video posted by brother Ali Banat on a number of occasions, a lot of people from other faiths and beliefs have also been touched by his journey with Cancer. He believed in that moment that his end was near and preparing to meet his Maker, he humbly asked for our forgiveness.


For those of you that may not have heard of Ali, he 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.

Brother Ali’s video sparked a viral outpouring of dua’s and well wishes across all the world and never have the words of the following Hadith felt so strong;

The Prophet (pbuh) said “The believers in their affection, compassion and love for one another are like one single body. If a part of it suffers from pain, the whole body will suffer in pain.” [Muslim]

I think for a moment, everyone felt, having witnessed such an intimate moment in a person’s life, that we were in this with him, looking death starkly in the eyes. It reinforced what we already know, but rarely contemplate, that our last breath can be taken at any given moment, only Allah knows. However, by the power of the Ummah’s dua and through the sheer mercy and wisdom of Allah SWT, Ali Banat made a recovery from this episode and was able, as planned, to continue on his journey for the MATW Project to, in his words; “complete the dreams of brothers and sisters around the world.”

So what lessons can the Ummah take from this experience and from this and for the sake of Ali as he strives in the path of Allah, how can we as individuals move forward from here positively?

Have Tawwakul

Strengthen your relationship with Allah strengthen your heart and soul. Having Tawwakul is reminding yourself that He is the ONLY one we can trust in. A lot of people believe that they have Tawwakul but become sick and immediately hand their lives over to the doctors to “cure”them, by every mean to seek help and go to the GP but also make dua for it. We have to have complete faith in Allah, in his power, his might and ultimately in His wisdom that he truly knows what is best for us.

There is healing in the Quran

All the cures for our body are written for us in the holy Quranh, from black seed oil, dates, to honey, to ZamZam water. There is no harm in accepting the medicines that are offered to us of course and certain medical conditions need specific medicine but our core and ongoing health we could incorporate these into our diet.

Build your Akhira

Ask yourself what you are doing NOW to secure your home in Jannah? Whilst we focus on pursuing and enhancing our careers, buying houses, getting married, going to the gym are we pursuing the akhira within all of these activities? Is out intention renewed? Are we aware of the main objective. Take a moment to re-focus every day.

Is our intention renewed?

Are we aware of the main objective.

Take a moment to re-focus every day.

What legacy will you leave behind?

Think about how people will remember you, what will they say about your character, about the contributions that you made. You don’t have to set up a charity, build a masjid or feed the poor in order to leave a legacy. Although all of these are noble things to do, your legacy is about the impact that you can have on people’s lives; that start with your family, your neighbours, your community or the ummah at large. Use the characteristics and skills that Allah has bestowed upon you and make your mark. We have all been given specific skills and traits to use for the betterment of the world.

We ask Allah SWT to grant our dear brother Ali Banat Shifa, we ask that he can fulfill his purpose here on earth and be rewarded with the highest rank in Jannah. We thank him for sharing his journey and reminders with us all for the sake of Allah.

    Podnoszące na duchu filmy to nie tylko komedie, ale także obrazy, które poruszają i wywołują refleksje i po których czujemy się lepiej nastrojeni do świata. Serwis przygotował ranking pozytywnych filmów, kierując się dwiema przesłankami: film musi poprawiać humor i być dobry. Jakie obrazy znalazły się w TOP 10? W biurze rady miasta zarejestrowano 15 projektów uchwał w sprawie wydania opinii o lokalizacji kasyna gry. Dotyczą czterech adresów: pl. Rodła, al. Wyzwolenia (w biurowcu i hotelu) oraz ul. Dubois (były budynek stoczniowy). „Osoby te miały ogromne doświadczenie w zawodzie krupiera i pracowały nieporównywalnie lepiej od pani Radczyc. W ogólnym rozrachunku potrzebujemy pracowników z dużym doświadczeniem” – powiedział pan Płóciniczak. Władze momentalnie zdecydowały się na pełną kwarantannę szpitala. Szybko znaleziono także wszystkie osoby, z którymi Kokoriekin miał kontakt i poddano je kwarantannie. Było to ponad 10 tysięcy obywateli. Wojsko zablokowało drogi wyjazdowe z Moskwy, odwołano także wszystkie pociągi i loty ze stolicy ZSRR. Rozpoczęto masowe szczepienia. W ciągu zaledwie 10 dni od wykrycia czarnej ospy zaszczepiono ponad 10 milionów osób. Tak wielkie obostrzenia i środki zaprzęgnięte do działania przyniosły spodziewane rezultaty. Zdiagnozowano jedynie 45 przypadków choroby, z czego zmarły tylko 3 osoby. Dziś spacerując po miasteczku można odnieść wrażenie, jakbyśmy cofnęli się w czasie. Na niszczejących budynkach wciąż można zobaczyć rosyjskie napisy, a na przed dawnym Domem Oficera do dziś stoi pomnik Lenina.

    Makeup artist Carissa Ferreri uses Sigma Beauty's Best of Beauty-winning F03 High Cheekbone Highlighter Brush for two main purposes. As its name suggests, it works wonderfully for highlighter, but she also uses it for “contouring the hollows of the cheek and around the perimeter of the face,” she explains. “The bristles are both fluffy but firm, making it ideal to deposit color and blend.” Both natural and synthetic brushes can be beneficial for different reasons. “Anything natural hair is amazing for blending; eyes, blush, powder.” Riddle explains. “Synthetics are great for applying primers, foundations, concealers, contour. I wouldn’t say one is better than the other — it really depends on the specific use of the brush.” Having an appropriate makeup brush for the steps in your makeup routine can make a huge difference in the outcome of your look. Using the correct kind of brush, whether it’s a tapered foundation blush or a flat concealer brush, can change how your makeup applies and help give you a smooth finish.

In Lab tests, this pen scored best for applying smoothly onto eyelids without tugging or skipping, and it got a near-perfect score for not irritating eyes or skin. 100% of testers agreed that it easily created their desired look, thanks to a super-thin felt tip that makes it easy to draw a skinny line.“I LOVE this eyeliner!,” said one tester. “It is so easy to apply, goes on super smoothly and evenly,” though some testers found the formula did fade a bit through the day. Based on our research, we found that makeup-melting cleansing balms and micellar water worked the best for removing waterproof eyeliner. As convenient as makeup wipes may seem, they typically require more rubbing to remove, so they’re best avoided. Whatever cleanser you choose, just make sure it’s safe for your eyes.
