Ali Banat was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah.
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.
When asked why he called the illness a gift from the Allah, the sobbing Ali Banat said the disease was opportunity for transformation.
The Sydney born and bred lad’s life took a dramatic turn when he was diagnosed of cancer
The most throbbing news was when the medical experts told him he had seven months to live.
Giving away the wealth
“I wanted to try to leave this world without anything,” said Ali Banat.
A trip to his room shows the luxurious lifestyle which Ali Banat was living, from designer bracelets that cost around $60 000, expensive watches, designers sunglasses and top of the range sneakers – some of which has made way to under-priviledged communities in Africa.
Gazing at his Ferrari parked on the driveway, Ali Banat says his interest in the materialistic possessions has vanished.
“These people are going for the wrong goals; you will realize that when you get sick when someone tells you, you haven’t got long to live.
He said the idea of establishing the charity organization, Muslims Around the World Project, was borne out of realization that when he dies all his wealth will remain except for his deeds.“Even your money, is not going to there for you so the only thing that’s going to be there for you is sadaqa (charity) and that’s the only thing that’s going to help you gradually through your time in the grave until you get to your ultimate destination.”
Let his legacy live in and let's help him complete this project and he can receive the reward in janat al firdous
