The Namaz and its Significance to the Muslim Man
A man woke up early in order to Pray the Fajr Prayer 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, He changed His Clothes, made his ablution, and was, again, on his way to the masjid.
On his way to the masjid, He Fell again and at the Same Spot! 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, He Met an M Holding a Lamp. He asked the man about his identity and the man replied I Saw You Fall Twice on your way to the masjid, So I bought a Lamp so I can Light Y our Way.’ The first man thanked him profusely and the two were 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,
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 the 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 a perfect Muslim Heart n we
all do Prayers with our Heart and Soul… Ameen
