Who was Ali Banat?

Ali Banat was a super wealthy, successful businessman- turned philanthropist and passed away on May 29th, 2018.

His charity, Muslims Around the World (MATW) helped many people in countries like Togo, Lebanon, Ghana and Burkina Faso. MATW has been changing lives of people in poverty-stricken countries.

The organization has been working on many projects in these African countries. From building schools, mosques and hospitals to providing daily meals to the poor, the work of MATW is ongoing.

Remarkable efforts

Just before his death, Ali’s fund-raising efforts led to the building of a bakery in a poor village in Togo. The bakery distributes up to 5000 loafs of bread a day among the less fortunate.

The matw first ever bakery Wen i first got to Togo Africa some of the tribal and less fortunate ppl where throwing them self at me for a pice of bread this was the state of poverty and Subhanallah now we have our own bakery and will produce 3-5000 loafs of bread a day to distribute to the less fortunate may allah keep allowing us to complete and be apart of these endless rewarding projects wallahi goals goals goals we all need to set the and work towards them especially now in Ramadan push urself hard

“The MATW first ever bakery. When I first got to Togo, some of the tribal and less fortunate people were throwing themselves at me for a piece of bread; this was the state of poverty and Subhanallah now we have our own bakery and will produce 3-5000 loafs of bread a day to distribute to the less fortunate, may Allah keep allowing us to complete and be apart of these endless rewarding projects . Wallahi goals, goals, goals.. we all need to set the and work towards them especially now in Ramadan push yourself hard.”

During the Rohingya crisis, his organization raised money to aid refugees living in camps. The funds provided them with water, food, shelter and clothing. It also hoped to put sustainable farming for those still in Burma in place.

Just a couple of days before Ali banat’s death, he posted a video of his organization handing out food for poverty-stricken families in Lebanon.

Lebanaon project and food distribution is going very well this year by the will of Allah and thanks to all who donated we ask allah to allow us to feed as many families and people as possible and to increase it in number every year for the rewards if we only new the rewards of breaking ones fast

About the idea of establishing the charity organization Banat said:

“It all started when I went to the cemetery where a brother that had cancer had passed away. And I was at the cemetery and I was thinking to myself after you go there’s nothing, there’s no one there for you, no mother, no father, no brother, no sister except for your deeds,” explaining that even the wealth also disappears.

“Even your money is not going to be 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.”
