Was planning to upload this only as a video. But since I’m too fast with that (not), I thought video can wait. So hope you benefit and don’t forget to share :)
So I guess you believe you will live forever?
You may think you can cheat death – You might be that clever!
For Allah’s limits you constantly transgress
So the ones around you might be impressed
By the way you act so cool you know
Putting up every time an excellent show
NO you don’t know that you’re falling in a trap
This world is a dream and you’re taking a nap
In the lap of your grave; your final resting place
But in this dream you are always in a race
For name and fame and everything that glitters
But know my friend that the truth is much bitter
You’ll wither and lose your vigor in time
You never know that this might be your last rhyme
So it’s time you submit yourself completely to HIM
Get hold of yourself; stop following your whim
And win, this race, so you get a shining light
On the day when people would be looking for brightness
Sadness, madness and chaos around you
Your mother and your father when won’t recognize you
Surprise you, despise you, they would push you away
“Where are the people all those nice things who used to say?!!”
So HEY! It’s time to snap out of this illusion.
And what is the worldly life except the enjoyment of delusion. [57:20]
Last post from Kitaab-ul-Jumu`ah [Book of Friday]. Alhamdulillah.
Volume 2, Book 13, Number 758:
Narrated Sahl bin Sad:
There was a woman amongst us who had a farm and she used to sow Silq (a kind of vegetable) on the edges of streams in her farm. On Fridays she used to pull out the Silq from its roots and put the roots in a utensil. Then she would put a handful of powdered barley over it and cook it. The roots of the Silq were a substitute for meat. After finishing the Jumua prayer we used to greet her and she would give us that food which we would eat with our hands, and because of that meal, we used to look forward to Friday.
Volume 2, Book 13, Number 759:
As above with the addition: We never had an afternoon nap nor meals except after offering the Jumua prayer.
Volume 2, Book 13, Number 760:
We used to offer the Jumua prayer early and then have the afternoon nap.
Volume 2, Book 13, Number 761:
We used to offer the Jumua prayer with the Prophet and then take the afternoon nap.
- Silq, the vegetable, is the beetroot (chiqandar).
- Companions used to go to the woman’s place every Friday, just to enjoy the meal. And they looked forward to Friday for this very reason. Haha. Food! :D
- They used to offer Jumu`ah, then eat and then take the afternoon nap.
Actually, the afternoon nap is very good for one’s health. But there’s some things you should know about it. For example, napping for 20-30 minutes and falling asleep for 2-3 hours are two different things. :P
And check this out. They say the best time to nap is between 1 PM – 3 PM = right after Jumu`ah/Dhuhr Salah. (y)
See? Sunnah is cool.
The disadvantage of praying when feeling drowsy: you won’t know what you’re praying for, forgiveness or a bad thing..? Better go take a nap!
Allah’s Apostle said, “If anyone of you feels drowsy while praying he should go to bed (sleep) till his slumber is over because in praying while drowsy one does not know whether one is asking for forgiveness or for a bad thing for oneself.”
Alhamdulillah. Prophet (SAW) was there to guide us about such matters. <3
