A Delay in Prayer

22 May

There was only 15 minutes left before Salat-ul Isha.

He quickly made Wudhu and performed Salat-ul Maghrib.

While making Tasbih, he again remembered his grandmother and was embarrassed by how he had prayed.His grandmother prayed with such tranquillity and peace.

He began making Dua and went down to make Sajdah and stayed like that for a while.

He had been at work all day and was tired, so tired.
He awoke abruptly to the sound of noise and shouting.
He was sweating profusely.
He looked around.
It was very crowded.

Every direction he looked in was filled with people.
Some stood frozen looking around, some were running left and right and some were on their knees with their heads in their hands just waiting.
Pure fear and apprehension filled him as he realized where he was.
His heart was about to burst.

It was the Day of Judgment!

When he was alive, he had heard many things about the questioning on the Day of Judgment, but that seemed so long ago.

Could this be something his mind made up?

No, the wait and the fear were so great that he could not have imagined this.

The interrogation was still going on.
He began moving frantically from people to people to ask if his name had been called.
No one could answer him.

All of a sudden his name was called and the crowd split into two and made a passageway for him.
Two angels grabbed his arms and led him forward.
He walked with unknowing eyes through the crowd.
The angels brought him to the centre and left him there.
With his head down his whole life was passing in front of his
eyes like a movie.

He opened his eyes but saw only another world.

People were helping others.
He saw his father running from one lecture to the other, spending his
wealth in the way of Islam.
His mother invited guests to their house and one table was being set
while the other was being cleared.

He pleaded his case, I too was always on this path.
I helped others and spread the word of Allah.
I performed my Salah. I fasted in the month of Ramadhan.
Whatever Allah ordered us to do, I did.
Whatever he ordered us not to do, I did not.’
He began to cry and thought about how much he loved Allah.
He knew whatever he had done in life would be less than what Allah deserved and his only protector was Allah.

He was sweating like never before and was shaking all over.
His eyes were fixed on the scale, waiting for the final decision.

At last, the decision was made.

The two angels with sheets of paper in their hands turned to the crowd.
His legs felt like they were going to collapse.
He closed his eyes as they began to read the names of those people who were to enter Jahannam.

His name was read first.

He fell on his knees and yelled that this couldn’t be, ‘How could I go to Jahannam?


I served others all my life, I spread the word of Allah to others’.
His eyes had become blurry and he was shaking with sweat.

The two angels took him by the arms.

As his feet dragged, they went through the crowd and advanced toward the blazing flames of Jahannam.
He was yelling and wondered if there was any person who was going to help him.
He was yelling of all the good deeds he had done, how he had helped his father, his fasts, prayers, the Noble Qur’an that he read, he was asking if none of them would help him.

The Jahannam angels continued to drag him.
They had gotten closer to the Hellfire. He looked back and these were his last pleas.

Had not Rasulullah [salallaahu alaihi wasallam] said,
‘How clean would a person be who bathes in a river five times a day, so too does the Salah performed five times cleanse someone of their sins’

He began yelling, ‘My prayers? My prayers? My prayers.?’

The two angels did not stop, and they came to the edge of the abyss of Jahannam.
The flames of the fire were burning his face. He looked back one last time, but his eyes were dry of hope and he had nothing left in him.

One of the angels pushed him in. He found himself in the air and falling towards the flames.

He had just fallen five or six feet when a hand grabbed him by the arm and pulled him back.


He lifted his head and saw an old man with a long white beard.
He wiped some dust off himself and asked him, ‘Who are you?’

The old man replied, ‘I am your prayers’.

‘Why are you so late? I was almost in the Fire! You rescued me at the last minute before I fell in’.

The old man smiled and shook his head,
‘You always performed me at the last minute, did you forget?’ (And what of those who perform no prayers at all?)

At that instant, he blinked and lifted his head from Sajdah. He was in a sweat.
He listened to the voices coming from outside. He heard the Adhan for Salat-ul Isha and got up quickly and went to perform Wudhu.

Hope it helps open our eyes InshaAllah.

What Lessons I Learnt from the Prophets of Islam

 Hardships are tests from Allah to make us stronger and to prove our sincerity and commitment to Him. Who better to learn this from, than the lives of the prophets, peace be upon them all!

Read Qur’an to Remember Allah

 How many of us put aside some time from our busy lives to listen, recite and ponder over the Quran? When was the last time you picked up a Quran and recited from it longer than thirty minutes?

Poem: Death

 Death does not scare me. What makes me tremble with fear, and fills me with pain and anxiety – It’s what waits for me in the next life of eternity. 

The Right to Believe

Tafseer and Hifdh of Soorah Maryam by E-jaazah.com -DONT MISS IT!

9 May

Join the Tafseer of Surah Maryam Course for FREE!

As salaamo alaykum wa rahmatulaahi wa barakaatuh,

If you would like to give yourself an opportunity to allow the Quran to enter your life like never before by learning Tafsir and memorizing in an easy way, read below!

Join the Class: http://e-jaazah.com/?eps=episode-1304866136

 

The Qur’an Made Easy

I know, I know. You’ve tired to memorize the Qur’an before. You had such determination. No one was going to stop you this time. At last! The verses that eluded you for so long were now yours for the taking.

You started.

Day 1 was great!

Day 2 was good.

Day 3 was so-so.

Day 4 was a weekend day so you gave yourself the day off.

Day 5 was another weekend day (day off).

Days 6-9 saw the dismantling of your determination and quiet exit from another attempt to memorize (I hope my wife doesn’t say anything to embarrass me)

Sound familiar? I know all too well! Being a native English speaker, the Qur’an was always difficult for me to memorize because I didn’t adequately understand what was being said.

We at E-jaazah.com are endeavoring to make the studying of this glorious book easy for the non-Arabs. We are offering Tafsir, implementation advice, and a user-friendly way to memorize the ayats as effortlessly as possible insha Allaah.

Here is how it works:

Step 1: Join the Class: http://e-jaazah.com/?eps=episode-1304866136

Step 2: After watching the class listen to the “Memorization Helper”. The Shaykh recites the verses and you recite with him. Only focus on the verses covered in class so as to not overburden yourself and be discouraged. The recitation is in an mp3 format so you can listen and recite along while you are in your car, on the train, on a horse (if you have one!) or anywhere else. Listen to a sample here.

Step 3: If available, spend a few minutes explaining to your wife and or children what these verses mean after dinner. Don’t spend too much time as they may not be accustomed to the change in you and you may want to introduce them slowly to keep them fully interested.

Q & A

Question: What am I going to get out of this class, when I’m so busy????

Answer: Insha Allaah you will have a grasp on the ayats that you never had before as you will not only learn the meanings of the ayats from the scholars of Tafsir (Ibn Kathir, Qurtobee, and others) but you’ll also be in a position to implement them into your life.

This will give the Qur’an a whole new station in your life that you may never have had before as you will:

1. Learn the Tafsir of the verses in a user-friendly video

2. Endeavor to implement the verses in your life through your understanding of them

3. Memorize the verses in a way that caters to the Muslim with a busy schedule

Question: How long is it going to take? I’ve started and stopped so many times!

Answer: The classes are about 45 minutes each. The special memorization helper mp3 is around 20 minutes (depending on the ayats covered). However, there is no real need to be sitting and listening for twenty minutes. You can be driving in the car, cooking dinner, or doing both (if you have a grill in the back seat). Classes are once a week, so it will not be a big burden to you insha Allaah.

Question: Where can I find these classes?

Answer: E-jaazah.com Click here to start!

Question: How much does it cost?

Answer: You must agree to make dua for all of the staff and teachers at E-jaazah.com if you benefit from it.

Question: What Surah will we be studying?

Answer: Surah Maryam

Question: Why Surah Maryam?

Answer: Most of the brothers and sisters at E-jaazah are ex-Christians and seem to have a love for the story of ‘Eisa (Jesus). Knowing Surah Maryam is also a great opportunity to help others learn the true nature of ‘Eisa and his Mother (peace and blessings upon the both).

Question: How many classes will there be?

Answer: There will be 9 classes to cover the entire Surah insha Allaah.

Question: How often are the classes?

Answer: Once a week.

Question: I’m really busy these days? How do I know I can make the classes?

Answer: The classes are pre-recorded so that you can cover the material at your leisure. The program is designed for the busy person to learn on a high level.

The most freaking day of 2011!

3 May

Aaah… today is my MOST FREAKING DAY!!!!!!!!

       You know what happened today?? I GOT MADDDDDDDDDD…YEAH I REALLY GOT MADDDDDDDDDDDD…

Actually I checked some posts  speaking about how to increase blog speed. It was quite catchy for me so I decided to try out its tips (although my blog is not that slow to load).

       In one of its points, it said to delete the unwanted trash we have in our administration area..thats not wrong its correct.

But while carrying out that step I DID A BIGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG WRONGGGGGGGGGGGGGG.

  YES I DELETED ALL MY IMAGES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually I didn’t know what I am doing, I thought it would be still there in the display and coolly I was deleting those 178 PICTURES..within a few clicks..

           Thinking, “Aah! My blog will load in SUPER DOOPER SPEED now” I returned to the homepage only to find it IN IT’S DEATH BED! 😦

MY HEART STOPPED…REALLY I WAS FAINTINGGGGGGGGGGGGG…

          MY BLOG WAS TORN APART…I LOST EVERYTHING…

MY BACKGROUND, MY HEADER, MY POST PICTURES, MY FEATURED IMAGES..NOTHING WAS THERE..

           I realized I deleted my 1 month work with MY OWN HANDS!!!

And I don’t have a saving of those images..

       Without spending much time in thinking…I started making my images again..

But my heart beat was at its peak..I dunno what I am doing..

    I donno why I deleted them..I donno why I am re-doing it ..!!!

SERIOUSLY, CAN I MAKE THOSE 178 IMAGES AGAIN?

     Few posts of mine were only based on images!!!

Thoughts flushing in my mind, trying to remember which image I made for which post..uhhh

WORDPRESS SHOULD REALLY HAVE A ‘TRASH’ FOR IMAGES TOO.. OR ATLEAST AN UNDO BUTTON!

        And while carrying out my ‘EXTRA-ORDINARY INTELLIGENCE’,  I did check my images in the home page once..this idiotic latest post SHOWED ITS IMAGE!!! So I was pretty sure my all other images will be there!!!

I started making my pictures..minutes running, hours running..I am telling you, just now at 6:32 pm I got all my images back..yes a BREAKLESS WORK FROM 9-6 IS WORTHFULL..

          

           I AM HAPPY TO SAY..MY BLOG IS BACK..MUCH BETTER THAN BEFORE..

YES I ADDED SOME NEW PICTURES  TOO..AND I  BROUGHT BACK THE SAME IMAGES 99%..

       hmm… I did my 1 month work in this single day…subhaanallaah..God helped me..

I WOULD SAY THIS IS A RE-BIRTH TO MY BLOG.    PHEWWW!!!..

          Will I mess with it again??

           WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?????????????????????????????????
