The Delusion

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.

 

Enjoyment of delusion

 

 

 

 

 

And what is the worldly life except the enjoyment of delusion. [57:20]

Afternoon Nap on Friday (Ahadith 758 – 761)

Assalamu`alaykum,
Bismillah.

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:

Narrated Sahl:

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:

Narrated Anas:

We used to offer the Jumua prayer early and then have the afternoon nap.

Volume 2, Book 13, Number 761:

Narrated Sahl:

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.

Hehe. Loved this one!

 

Wassalam.

Till You Know What You’re Saying (Hadith No. 212)

Salam,
Bismillah.

Volume 1, Book 4, Number 212:

Narrated Anas:

The Prophet said, “If anyone of you feels drowsy while praying, he should sleep till he understands what he is saying (reciting).”

Reference: Hadith No. 211

But this obviously doesn’t mean that you can keep sleeping at Fajr time if you’re drowsy. :)

Wassalam.

Feeling Drowsy? Take A Nap (Hadith No. 211)

Salam,
Bismillah.

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!

Volume 1, Book 4, Number 211:

Narrated ‘Aisha:

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

Wassalam.
