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.

Are You A ‘Diest’?

1 Apr

 

 

Are You A ‘Diest’?

          From all these things which we have seen before, can you realize that there is a God which created everything including the universe? You should be sure that nature is not God, love is not God but God is a separate entity. If not take 3 more days and think for yourself.

 

Still if you cannot believe that there is a God, don’t hesitate to explain your side in the comments section below.

 

Now we go to the next stage,

 

There is a God who created this world but thereafter He left the world. He has no control over it or to the lives of the people.

 

People who believe in this are called ‘Diests’.

 

Unfortunately most of us are diests. We believe in God but we say that we are free of God’s need.

 

“Yes there is a God but we don’t need Him” <–Most of us say this, right?

 

“He don’t need to tell me what the right way is, I will find it for myself” <–We are in this ugliest state.

 

My Dear Reader, if you are a Diest consider these points.

 

Point 1:

       No one will create something without a purpose. Even you will not create a thing without a purpose. NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION… Isn’t it?

 

Even you a human will not do it, then how come the Creator of all these excellent excellent things around us, created them without a purpose?

 

How can you believe that YOU ARE A CREATION WITHOUT A PURPOSE?

 

You are just putting yourself down..

 

Think what ‘Your’ Lord says,

“And We did not create the heavens and earth, and all that is between them, in mere play.” [AlQur’aan 44:38]

 

“Does man think that he will be left uncontrolled, (without purpose)?” [AlQur’aan 75:36]

Think think think… How can we be created without a purpose?

 

Point 2:

   “Okey!!! God created me for some purpose but I don’t want Him!” <– Are you saying this?

 

Oh my little brain! It is not God who needs you. IT IS YOU WHO NEED HIM.

It is you who need Him to BREATHE not your GOD.

It is you who need Him to TWINKLE YOUR EYE not your GOD.

It is you who need Him to WALK, TALK, and SMILE not your GOD.

It is you who need Him to EAT, DRINK, and SLEEP not your GOD.

It is you who need Him in EVERY SECOND OF YOUR LIFE not your GOD!!!

  

Even if you say NO for all those questions, when there comes a time of necessity, when a lion is in front of you.. You will shout, “O GOD!! SAVE MEEE!!!!

  

Yes indeed IT IS TRUE,

“O mankind, you are those in need of Allah, while Allah is the Free of need, the Praiseworthy.” [AlQur’aan 35:15]

  

Point 3:

     We are in need of our Lord. But to ask our needs to our Lord there are certain ways.

“What certain ways?? He should grant my wishes in whatever manner I ask Him” <–Do you say this?

  

Look my reader!

There are certain manners, ways for each n every act in our life. We do expect it from our fellow beings, don’t we?

Even if your kid comes n asks u, “You crazy dad/mum! Why can’t you buy a pencil for me?” What u gonna tell her? Will u get the thing for her?

Nope! You are going to teach her to be polite and to be respectfull.

And this is the way, manner she is supposed to follow.

 

Afterall we human beings expect this, then what about our Lord, the AllPowefull and All Praise Worthy??

Think! You will get what I mean.

 

Your God will provide you even if you don’t ask Him. BUT THAT WILL NOT BE AN EVERLASTING PROVISION!!

There are certain ways to get that EVERLASTING PROVISION!

 

And this is a very complex point. People will say, “Only I can say what the correct way is and not the God”.

 

So we get two sub points here,

a. Ways which people created for themselves.

b. Ways which God created for us.

 

Point 3a:

Ways which people created for themselves:

        Unfortunately, 99.9% ways are created by people. Ways created by people for people. These ways will always have faults in them no matter how perfect we try to make them. We humans always err.

        If we look at the religious side, Buddha. Buddha was a man. Even he didn’t call himself as God. The things which he said were good things nothing wrong in them. But where the problem comes is Buddha was a human. He is not here anymore. He will not know if I disobey him.

   A X-Buddhist said, “I will say all the mantras of good behaviour then I will cover the statue of Buddha and start drinking wine!!”

   “Why because Buddha will never know what I am doing! I am good for the outer world.”

 

     Uhh.. THIS WILL BE RESULT OF FOLLOWING A MAN MADE WAY!

 

Point 3b:

Ways which God created for us:

         Again this is also a very critical point. There is no doubt in saying that we should follow the ways which God wanted us to follow but what is that way?

We have numerous ways claiming that it is the Godly way.

 

No worries, if you do some research you will find that 99% ways have the works of men init.

May be that way will be revived, renewed, reviewed my men… Whatever it is… even if any microscopic change is done to it… IT IS NOT A GODLY WAY ANYMORE!!

 

Lets go deeper in the future posts, if God so wills it.

 

What you have to know from this post is,

1. There is a God.

2. He did not create me and this universe without a purpose.

3. God wanted us to live in a specific manner.

4. If I don’t obey Him, there is no loss for Him.

5. But I will be the loser because it is me who needs Him.

 

Stop0think!
