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!
Upon learning about his death, Muslims started to mourn him on Twitter.
Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Illayhi Raji’oon. Please keep our brother Ali Banat in your dua as he has just passed away. Such an inspiring man who did so much for our Ummah, I pray Allah forgives his sins, lights up his grave and grants him Jannatul Firdaus, Ameen.

Ali Banat was a millionaire on a mission to give up all of his worldly possessions. Upon hearing he had stage 4 terminal cancer, he sold everything he had or gave it to people in Africa.
His organization has built masjids and schools in Africa for the less fortunate.

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raaji’oon. A man who said his cancer was a gift from Allah, helped so many people and put himself on the straight path. Then passes in this beautiful month. May Allah SWT grant Ali Banat the highest rank in Jannah, Ameen.

I just deeped it. The doctor gave Ali Banat 7 months to live. Allah gave Ali Banat 3 years to live and at the same time took him away on the blessed month of Ramadan whilst the gates of jahannam is closed subhanallah. I got goose bumps 😭
