Solat Subuh


Perkongsian tentang hakikat solat subuh dalam masyarakat kita sekarang :)

The happiness of that guy was tremendous when a well-known company hired him to work for it. He was over the moon as he was the only accepted candidate.

He signed the contract that implies that he should agree on respecting the company’s working hours, delivering weekly reports about his work and activities, and accepting to be punished for any delinquency.
Soon later, the guy met his manager and said to him, "From tomorrow onwards, I will not come on time. And I will not deliver my weekly reports on time either; instead they will be delayed for a while. In spite of all that, I will not allow you to punish me, and you don't have the right to kick me out from work."

If we imagine such a situation, we will laugh at the behaviour of that guy. How can someone want to take his rights whereas he is not committed to his own obligations?!

But most of us are doing the same thing. Wondering how??
How can a sane person allow himself to enjoy all of Allah's graces: such as food, drink, clothes and life pleasures; whereas he doesn't offer Allah the simplest obligatory He obligates him to do, that is praying?!
And even if he prays, then he doesn't pray on time or he prays like a rooster (i.e. he prays too hastily and carelessly). He neither complies with his praying nor apprehends what he says.

When Allah the Almighty ordered Muslims to pray He warned those who delay the prayer after its designated time, saying:
"So woe to the worshippers who are neglectful of their prayers" [107:4-5]

The interpreters said that what is meant by this verse is delaying prayer after its designated time.
Praying Fajr reflects how much you love Allah the Almighty

A lot of Muslims nowadays neglect Fajr prayer as if it was not there. That's why they pray it much later than its designated time. In addition, some of them pray it immediately before the Noon prayer. Others may never pray it even for compensation (Qaddaa). So why this laziness against what Allah the Almighty deserves? Don't we proclaim that we love Allah the Almighty more than anything else? Do those who do not pray Fajr prayer really love Allah? Do they really respect His Orders? Are they willing to meet Him?

Allah SWT is the ONLY ONE who gives you your means of living and who bestowed you with everything from His bounties.
"...if you try to count the blessings of Allah, never will you be able to count them.” [Surah Ibrahim: 14: 34]

Doesn't this Lord, The Boundlessly Bountiful and Infinitely Merciful deserve that you wake up for Him every morning at about 5.30 a.m. and thank Him for His great blessings and his generous favours?

The Prophet (pbuh) said: "There is no prayer more difficult to attend for hypocrites than Fajr and Ishaa. And if they knew what's in them (i.e. the good reward - thawab) they would attend them even if they had to come crawling." (Narrated by Bukhari)

Well here are some suggestions for all of us:
  • Everyone of us should set an alarm clock to wake up for Fajr Salat daily.
  • We should give Salat its status in our lives, and we should discipline our jobs according to the Salat’s designated time. (Unfortunately, we simply do the opposite!)
  • We should sleep early and wake up for Fajr and then leave for work. Soon after Fajr, Allah distributes people's sustenance (Arzaq).
  • Each one of us should seek a good companionship who would call to wake him/her at Fajr Salat. Moreover, they would help one another to adhere to such a good deed, InshaAllah.
  • We should not forget to make duaa before sleeping asking Allah to help us do our Salat.
  • To feel guilty if we missed a single obligatory Salat. Furthermore, we should vow never to repeat this big sin again.
May Allah SWT make us among those who truly love Him. May He give us sincerity in both words and deeds. (Ameen).
