A man woke up early in order to Pray the F ajr P rayer in the masjid.
He got dressed, made his ablution and was on his way to the masjid.
On his way to the masjid, the man fell and his clothes got dirty.
He got up, brushed himself off, and headed home. At home,
H e changed H is C lothes, made his ablution, and was, again,
on his way to the masjid.
On his way to the masjid, H e F ell again and at the S ame S pot!
He, again, got up, brushed himself off and headed home.
At home he, once again, Changed His Clothes,
made his ablution and was on his way to the masjid.
On his way to the masjid, H e M et a M an H olding a L amp.
He asked the man of his identity and the man replied I S aw Y ou F all T wice
on your way to the masjid,
So IB rought a L amp so I can L ight Y our W ay.’
The first man thanked him profusively and the
two where on their way to the masjid.
Once at the masjid, the first man asked the man with
the lamp to come in and pray Fajr with him.
The second man refused.
The first man asked him a couple more times and,
again, the answer was the same.
The first man asked him why he did not wish to come in and pray.
He man replied
I am Shetan(devil/ evil)
The man was shocked at this reply.
Shetan went on to explain,a
‘I saw you on your way to the masjid
and it was I who made you fall. When you went home,
cleaned yourself and went back on your way to the masjid,
Allah forgave all of your sins.
I made you fall a second time, and even that
did not encourage you to stay home,
but rather, you went back on your way to the masjid.
Because of that, Allah forgave all the sins
of the people of your household . I was AFRAID if i made you fall one more time,
then Allah will forgive the sins of the people of your village,
so I made sure that you reached the masjid safely..’
So do not let Shetan benefit from his actions.
Do not put off a good that you intended to do as
you never know how much reward
you might receive from the hardships you encounter
while trying to achieve that good.
If forwarding this message will bother you, or take
too much time from you, then don’t do it, but you will not
get the reward of it, which is great. Imagine,
that when you forward this, you receive 240 good deeds,
and so will I for sending it to you! Wouldn’t it be easy just to
Press Forward ‘ and receive this Reward ?
May Allah (Subhana Ho Wataallah) grant us perfect Muslim Heart n we
all do Prayers with our Heart and Soul… Ameen
