Tag Archive: Prayer


Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you the one thing, narrated by the Prophet(SAW), that differentiates the Muslim’s from anyone else: The 5 Prayer’s(Salah).

It may seem difficult to pray 5 times a day but this is our duty and responsibility as a slave and servant of God and it is a sign of being a true believer.

Allah(SWT) says in the Quran: “The believers, men and women, are protecting friends of one another; they enjoin good and forbid evil, and they establish Salah, and give Zakah, and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah will have His Mercy on them, and surely, Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.” (Surah At-Tawbah, 9: 71)

Even the Prophet(SAW) emphasised that the Salah is what defines us as a Muslim.

Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “Between a man and disbelief and paganism is the abandonment of Salat (prayer).‘[Muslim]

Buraidah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “That which differentiates us from the disbelievers and hypocrites is our performance of Salat. He who abandons it, becomes a disbeliever.”[At-Tirmidhi]

Shaqiq bin `Abdullah reported: The Companions of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) did not consider the abandonment of any action as disbelief except neglecting Salat.[At-Tirmidhi]

Let us all strive to establish our fundamentals and foundations with the Prayer(Salah) and Insha’Allah we ask Allah(SWT) for guidance, protection, forgiveness, and Junnah-al-Firdaus.

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you the importance of one of the most fundamental concepts of Islam: Salah(Prayer).

Salah is extremely important when it comes to being a true Muslim. It provides a gateway towards spiritual enlightenment, contentedness, and peace.

In the Quran it states, “Guard strictly your (habit of) prayers, especially the Middle Prayer; and stand before Allah in a devout (frame of mind).”(Surah Baqarah, 2:238).

Allah(SWT) commands us to guard strictly to our prayers, and the Prophet(SAW) clarifies the reasoning behind it by stating how it will be the first thing that will be asked of us on the Day of Judgement.

Rasoolullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “The first thing the people will be accountable for on the Day of Judgment is prayer, Allah will say to His angels (even though he already knows) : “Look at my servants prayers. Were they complete or not?” If they were complete It will be written as complete. If they were not fully complete Allah will say: “See if my servant has voluntary prayers, If he has them Allah will say: Complete his obligatory prayers shortage with his voluntary prayers.” Then the rest of his deeds will be dealt with in the same manner.” (Reported by Imams Ahmad, Abu Dawood, An-Nisa’i, and Al-Hakim)

Insha’Allah we all turn back to Allah(SWT) and hold tight to our prayers and perform them with true conviction. Do not let this world trap you from something that is a great blessing to have. Insha’Allah we all ask for Allah(SWT) to guide us, protect us, forgive us, and grant us Junnah-al-Firdaus.

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to say that if you have done terrible things in your life that you should be patient and turn to Allah(SWT) because it is unfathomable how merciful Allah(SWT) is.  Below are two hadiths that explain the mercy of Allah(SWT).

Abu Huraira (radi allahu anhu) reported: I heard Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) as saying: Allah created mercy in one hundred parts and He retained with Him ninety-nine parts, and He has sent down upon the earth one part, and it is because of this one part that there is mutual love among the creation so much so that the animal lifts up its hoof from its young, one, fearing that it might harm it.  (Muslim)

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri (radi allahu anhu): The Prophet(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, “Amongst the men of Bani Israel there was a man who had murdered ninety-nine persons. Then he set out asking (whether his repentance could be accepted or not). He came upon a monk and asked him if his repentance could be accepted. The monk replied in the negative and so the man killed him. He kept on asking till a man advised to go to such and such village.(So he left for it) but death overtook him on the way. While dying, he turned his chest towards that village (where he had hoped his repentance would be accepted), and so the angels of mercy and the angels of punishment quarreled amongst themselves regarding him. Allah ordered the village (towards which he was going) to come closer to him, and ordered the village (whence he had come), to go far away, and then He ordered the angels to measure the distances between his body and the two villages. So he was found to be one span closer to the village (he was going to). So he was forgiven.” (Bukari)

Now imagine how merciful and forgiving Allah(SWT) is. A man killed 100 people and he pushed away and brought closer certain towns to fill the requirements for this man to be forgiving. Allah(SWT) wants to forgive mankind. He wants to send mankind to paradise. That’s why he divided his mercy into 100 parts, in which he held 99 for himself to be merciful for mankind. This why as we must always turn back to Allah(SWT) for repentance, forgiveness, guidance, and strength.

Quran: “Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.”” (Surah Az-Zumar, 39:53).

Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I am not writing this to start up fights and I ask Allah(SWT) to guide me. I hope to see people to be open minded and learn for themselves the truth.

I want to show how the trinity does not exist and how Jesus in the Bible does not even claim to be God, but claims to be a prophet of God.

First off, find me one verse in the Bible that talks about the trinity. You cannot because there is nothing mentioned in the Bible about the trinity unless you have a Bible with later insertions that have been falsified because as all Christians know that due to the varying sects there are different Bible’s, with different translation. However, they have failed to see that the Quran, no matter the varying sects, is still in its original form.

Secondly, Jesus in the Bible performs human attributes such as praying to God. Two examples are:

In Matthew 14:23 “After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone”

In Luke 22:41 “He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed

Praying and kneeling down for worship are human attributes. The question would arise, if he is God then why would he be praying to himself.

Thirdly, in the Bible Jesus even states that the people who will worship me are in the wrong direction.

In Matthew 15:9 “They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.”

I could give you a long list of reasons why the trinity is false and Jesus is not God, but I will allow some former preachers and ministers to explain the rest. Insha’Allah we all open up our eyes and hearts to guide us towards Allah(SWT) the one and only God.
