why do you really pray?Let us pray.

But why do you really pray?

Do you pray because you need something? Do you pray because you want something? Do you pray because you are just told so? Come, think of it, ask yourself, why do you pray?

Many thoughts are coming now to your mind, right?

Yes, we have all our own reasons why we pray to Allaah Azza Wa Jall, but before anything else, let it be known that you pray because it is not because you are told so but because you are obliged to do so, it is the first pillar of Islam
after shahada .
Realize that Allaah Azza Wa Jall never gets tired of Providing and Sustaining for your needs, He forgives you as long as you repent yet when He calls you to pray and have a talk with Him, you refuse?

Salaah is a gift and a mercy from Allaah Azza Wa Jall. It is the best form of giving thanks to Allaah Azza Wa Jall, best way to have a talk with him and pour everything that is in your heart without being ashamed because you know Allaah Azza Wa Jall can be the only One who can bring such comfort in your heart, you know that when you pour out your feelings to Him, He comforts it by letting your tears fall from your eyes which in return gives such relief in you, have you ever notice that?

Yes, when we cry, we release all out the stress, hatred and pain away from our hearts, that is a mercy from Allaah Azza Wa Jall, so when you cry it doesn’t mean you are weak, it just means that you are being comforted by Allaah Azza Wa Jall, there is nothing wrong on crying. It is a gift, so embrace it.

When you pray, concentrate, do not be fast on uttering the words of the Qur’an, feel every word, there is nothing wrong if you take long in salaah, it is a moment gifted to you by Allaah Azza Wa Jall, so make it count.

When you pray, know that you stand infront of Allaah Azza Wa Jall, so be firm. Stay focused, remember sooner or later, death may come upon you, so pray as if it is your last, cry, because with all the sins we have committed, we should cry, cry out for forgiveness from Him, for every minute that we have displeased Him, He tells us…

[1] Muhammad sallallahu allaihi wassalaam said in a Hadith Qudsi that Allaah Azza Wa Jall said:

"O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind. O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you.

O son of Adam, were you to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth and were you then to face Me, ascribing no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as its.”

Subhan’Allaah, how can a heart full of sins can not call out for forgiveness to the One Who says I will forgive you?

Every time, every time and i mean every single time we pray our Salaah, make it the most meaningful one. Make it so meaningful that your du’a would make the angels say Amin with you.

Allaah is Al Wadood, The Most Loving, my brother and sister in Islam, Allaah Azza Wa Jall loves you, just by the mere fact that he handpicked you to be a Muslim, says so much about His Love for you, or by just the fact that you were lost and He guided you back, doesn’t that make the heart grow fonder for Him more?

When you got lost, He didn’t put you astray more, rather He called you back, wallahi He gave you that honor back, so why are you putting this honor away by not praying?

Every salaah we make is a worship to Him, but go beyond that, make it a communication, a direct communication from you to Him, rather just praying just because you have to, pray because you want to, because you need to because its all that you have, the first step to become better, the first step to become closer to Him.

My dear child, we are bound to return to our Lord soon, either I go first or you go, all of us will. So make everyday count, you are given 5 gifts everyday, open it, fill it, embrace it and make use of it.

Remember, not all the people in this world is given this honor of having a talk with Him 5 times a day, We are blessed for we are Muslims and Allaah Azza Wa Jall honored us that.

Now, are you up for another talk with Him?

Yes, start with the next Salaah, give meaning to it.
______

And we pray that Allaah Azza Wa Jall softens our hearts through our salah, through remembering His Mercy, His Love, His Protection, His Guidance and His Blessings that we may realize the bountiful blessings He has given us and in return we could give thanks by staying consistent on offering prayers to Him.

Amin

Zohayma

I feel it you know. The complete emptiness when I can’t pray. You will miss Him.

When Muslim women are asked why do they wear hijab, the simple answer is, “Because God asked me to” not “Because men asked me to.” Hijab is about Allah (swt) and submitting to His will and trusting His way. It’s an incredibly spiritual act especially today because you must strive to remove the desire for human approval completely in order to practice it well. Allah (swt) says, “that is purer for you.” Hijab is a purification. For some, hijab may help purify the tendency towards vanity. For others, it is simply a constant physical reminder that our goal in life is to please our Creator. The experience of hijab for many is described as “liberating” and “a divine gift” as it encourages us to recognize our own spiritual and intellectual center, and compels us to honor, even celebrate this most sacred part of ourselves as we deal with the world.

 A. Hijab for women is not about Men.
B. Hijab is not meant to erase physical beauty, but honor it.
What happens if a woman covers herself appropriately, and people still feel tempted by her or are attracted to her? Beauty is not a woman’s ‘fault’, and she is not asked to hide because others can’t control their feelings. Rather, they must lower their gaze and purify their thoughts.

Ibn Abbas said: “A beautiful woman, from among the most beautiful of women, used to pray behind the Prophet ﷺ. Some of the people used to go to pray in the first row to ensure they would not be able to see her. Others would pray in the last row of the men, and they would look from underneath their armpits to see her. Because of this act, in regard to her, Allah revealed, “And We have already known the preceding [generations] among you, and We have already known the later [ones to come],” (Qu’ran, 15:24).

In this incident, Allah (swt) does not reveal that a barrier be put up to block off the view of the women’s side. He does not ask the woman to not come to the masjid. She is not told to wear niqab. She is not asked to pray in the last lines. Allah is addressing the men and these are verses revealed after the command of hijab was in place. Allah is telling them that He knows what is in their hearts. Hijab is not to remove all beauty from a woman. Rather, it is to let her define her sense of beauty by donning the dress and character that pleases God.

We asked: “What is the Garden made of?” The Prophet said: “A brick of gold and a brick of silver, its mortar is of strongly scented musk, its stones are pearls and emeralds, and its soil is of saffron. Those who enter it will be in affluent circumstances and will not be destitute, they will live for ever and not die, their garments will not wear out, and their youth will not pass away.”
(Narrated by Abu Hurayra, at-Tirmidhi)

(Narrated by Abu Musa (r.a.), Sahih al-Bukhari; Sahih Muslim)

As for those who believe and do right actions - We impose on no self any more than it can bear - they are the Companions of the Garden, remaining in it timelessly, for ever.
(Surat al-A’raf: 42)

If as much of what is in the Garden as could be carried by a fingernail were to appear, the space between the cardinal points of the heavens and the earth would be adorned on account of it. If a man of the inhabitants of the Garden were to look down and his bracelets were to appear, his light would obliterate the light of the sun just as the sun obliterates the light of the stars.
(Narrated by Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas, at- Tirmidhi)

“[They are] on sumptuous woven couches”
(Surat al-Wa‘qia: 15)

They will have Gardens of Eden with rivers flowing under them. They will be adorned in them with bracelets made of gold and wear green garments made of the finest silk and rich brocade, reclining there on couches under canopies. What an excellent reward! What a wonderful repose!
(Surat al-Kahf: 31)

(Surat al-A’raf: 49)

Gardens of Eden with rivers flowing under them, remaining in them timelessly, for ever. That is the reward of those who purify themselves.
(Surah Ta Ha: 76)

But Allah will admit those who have iman and do right actions into Gardens with rivers flowing under them where they will be adorned with gold bracelets and pearls, and where their clothing will be of silk.
(Surat al-Hajj: 23)

He will have a very pleasant life in an elevated Garden.

(Surat al-Waqi’a: 89)

… and make me one of the inheritors of the Garden of Delight;
