The Night is Long.. (Ahadith 942 – 944)

Assalamu`alaykum,
Bismillah.

Volume 2, Book 21, Number 243:

Narrated Abu Huraira

Allah’s Apostle said, “Satan puts three knots at the back of the head of any of you if he is asleep. On every knot he reads and exhales the following words, ‘The night is long, so stay asleep.’ When one wakes up and remembers Allah, one knot is undone; and when one performs ablution, the second knot is undone, and when one prays the third knot is undone and one gets up energetic with a good heart in the morning; otherwise one gets up lazy and with a mischievous heart.”

Volume 2, Book 21, Number 244:

Narrated Samura bin Jundab:

The Prophet said in his narration of a dream that he saw, “He whose head was being crushed with a stone was one who learnt the Quran but never acted on it, and slept ignoring the compulsory prayers.”

Volume 2, Book 21, Number 245:

Narrated ‘Abdullah :

A person was mentioned before the Prophet (p.b.u.h) and he was told that he had kept on sleeping till morning and had not gotten up for the prayer. The Prophet said, “Satan urinated in his ears.”

If you want Shaytan to urinate in your ears (literally), and you want to be lazy and get up with a mischievous heart, and you want your head being constantly crushed with a stone (for eternity), go ahead and keep ignoring your prayers. Go ahead and be deceived by Shaytaan when he tells you that the night is long and there’s still time for prayer. Leave your prayers, by all means!

But remember this. The night will soon come to an end. But the punishment that awaits you won’t EVER end. You’ll want to die but you won’t be able to die. You’ll want to live again, but it’ll be too late then. And nobody will care about you. Those in Paradise will be enjoying themselves. And they’ll thank Allah for not making them suffer like you. Don’t think that your loved ones in Paradise will feel bad about you. No. They’ll be busy feeling good about themselves. Shaytan, whom you listened to so obediently, will ditch+disown you right there. He’ll have his own punishment to face. Why would he care about you?

You, my friend, have a choice to make. To pray or not to pray? THAT is the question.

Wassalam.

  1. Wa alaikum assalam! Last paragraph’s awesome!! All discussed in Surah Ibraheem (reminded me of this!).

    //You’ll want to die but you won’t be able to die.//

    “Before him is Hell, and he will be given a drink of purulent water.
    He will gulp it but will hardly [be able to] swallow it. And death will come to him from everywhere, but he is not to die. And before him is a massive punishment.”
    Verses 16-17

    //You’ll want to live again, but it’ll be too late then. And nobody will care about you.//

    “And, [O Muhammad], warn the people of a Day when the punishment will come to them and those who did wrong will say, “Our Lord, delay us for a short term; we will answer Your call and follow the messengers.” [But it will be said], “Had you not sworn, before, that for you there would be no cessation?”
    Verse 44

    // Those in Paradise will be enjoying themselves. And they’ll thank Allah for not making them suffer like you. Don’t think that your loved ones in Paradise will feel bad about you. No. They’ll be busy feeling good about themselves.//

    “And those who believed and did righteous deeds will be admitted to gardens beneath which rivers flow, abiding eternally therein by permission of their Lord; and their greeting therein will be, “Peace!””
    Verse 23

    //Shaytan, whom you listened to so obediently, will ditch+disown you right there. He’ll have his own punishment to face. Why would he care about you?//

    “And Satan will say when the matter has been concluded, “Indeed, Allah had promised you the promise of truth. And I promised you, but I betrayed you. But I had no authority over you except that I invited you, and you responded to me. So do not blame me; but blame yourselves. I cannot be called to your aid, nor can you be called to my aid. Indeed, I deny your association of me [with Allah ] before. Indeed, for the wrongdoers is a painful punishment.”
    Verse 22

  2. This one shakes to the core. Literally. JazakAllah Khair, sis, for the harsh reminder that we tend to forget!

  3. Reblogged this on Lighten It Up and commented:
    A Must Read Post by a friend! It is a much needed reminder, indeed.
