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.

Little About Me

25 Apr

 

I got a response from one of my friends..we used to have a little chit chat about Islam..bt this conversation is worth posting here..it may clarify certain facts about me and it may help others.

Give it a read!

“Great work ūüôā
Big problem in this era of dot com is good amount of religious content is available on net but authenticating the same is real real test for the surfer. Most of the Islamic sites on internet are misleading.

One day I thought of reading biography of first Caliph Hz.Abu Bakr Siddiq(RZ) and with my search query I got beautiful pdf. I started reading and every thing mention there was absolutely correct and nothing was contradicting but when I reached middle of pdf there was some thing written about sect Khadiyaani. The author is praising the sect and its founder, I was shocked to see that and deleted that pdf.

Similarly for the newbies its is really difficult to learn Islam on internet, but the kind of work you are doing is really good and its our duty of promote those sites among Ummah.

What is your opinion on Abdul Wahab Najdi? As far as I know he is the real biddah(innovator) in Islam and most of his teachings are misleading to innocent muslims. I heard that guy is khawaraji and people who are following him are extremist.
Hadith of Prophet Mohammed(Peace be upon him) “Jews were divided¬†into 72 sects and my Ummah¬†will be divided into 73 sects and out of 73 sects only one sect will enter into Heaven”
So every follower of different sects raises this question which is that sect who are on correct path?

May Allah(SWT) by the grace of blessed Sandal of Prophet Muhammed(PUBH) guide us the true path Ameen.”

My Reply:

Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† What u r saying is true.. many sites leads¬†to misinterpretation of Islaam, mostly shiates.. and people start thinking grave worship is good too!! na’oodubillah we seek refuge in Allah..

 

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† To be frank.. i¬†don really knw¬†who Abdul Wahab Najdi is…

if He was to be an inhabitant of Paradise..i would be questioned by Allah for my words..

If he was a deviant, i¬†hv¬†nothing to talk abt him.. We dont¬†know.. Allah knows…so lemme refrain from saying anything in shaa¬†allah..

 

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Yes.. the hadith u quoted is a well famous hadith..and everyone who quotes this says they are on that right path..lol allaahu musta’aan..

 

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† If u ask me what I am going to say…

 

There r people who say.. take it only from qur’aan n sunnah… and there r people who say blindly follow an imaam..he is infallible..

 

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Bt not me..as Islam is the middle path.. i¬†go in the middle path too.. I need Qur’an n sunnah as lungs.. and good righteous imaams as the nasal pathway for air to enter lungs..

 

¬†¬†¬†¬† U see.. air can have impurities too.. what i¬†take from imaams¬†‘may’ hv¬†some __ too..bt once it reaches the lungs (qur’an n sunnah)..oxygen gets separated and the impurity goes out via the same path..

 

 

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Without the quran¬†n sunnah u r doomed..without the imaams¬†it will be hard for u to check everything bck¬†to qur’aan n sunnah.. that nasal passage guides air direct to the lungs.. and lungs do the job of purifying..u gt my point?

 

To be fair..i dont¬†hv¬†that much knowledge to understand everything from qur’aan¬†n sunnah.. we cant¬†ignore the gr8¬†works of Imam Abu Hanifa, Malik, Shafi’i¬†or Ahmad or any other imaam.. May Allah bless them all..

 

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†Rather I wont say, follow one imam juz¬†blindly.. thats¬†where we do mistake..when a statement of imam goes clearly against the quran¬†or sunnah.. Allah n His Messenger shld¬†be ur priority… WHY DO YOU WANT TO BREATH COAL N SAY LUNGS WILL DO ITS JOB?

 

       And i wont start blaming that imaam, if he did a mistake..that may be due to many circumstances.

       Doing a mistake is not a mistake. But following that mistake after knowing it as a mistake is a mistake..lol (hope i am nt confusing u)

 

 Thats what we study in our syllabus..there were many circumstances which lead to difference of opinions between the imaams.. if we study their history we will know that if those imaams came to knw something goes against authentic sunnah.. immediately they would hv changed their view..THEN WHY NOT WE?

 

As I am studying fiqh..i can appreciate all the 4 imams .. if u knw..they were students within themselves.. Shafi’i¬†learnt from student of Abu Hanifa¬†, Ahmad learnt from Shafi’i..maa shaa allaah¬†ta’aala..

 

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† But now..people say I am a shaafi’i¬†n i¬†dont¬†take anything from Hanafis.. I am Hambali¬†n i¬†dont¬†care abt Malikis..

 

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† We r all muslims in the first place.. thats¬†y i¬†don prefer giving me any title.. hanafi, maliki, shafi’i, hambali, wahhabi, salafi whatsoever.. i am a muslim n only a muslim.

Note: I am not saying giving a title next to our name is deviation..I am in no position to say that! For myself I juz don prefer it.

 

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†I can agree with all knowledgeable imaams¬†as long as i¬†see their proofs in qur’aan¬†n sunnah n as long as i¬†dont see them in the deviated path..(khawarij, shia etc)..

         

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† I dont¬†say all of them except me r deviated a’oodubillaah…bcoz…i am only a bug..which strives n slowly crawls behind our beloved Prophet (sal allaahu¬†‘alaihi wa sallam).

 

       It is Allah who is free of All Mistakes..and it is He to whom we surrender..no help except His help n no protection except His protection..allahumma ameen.
