I absolutely love this nasheed!
Read this in reference. :)
Prayer is obligatory on all Muslims, despite their skin color, their financial status, their culture, race, geography etc. So no matter where we are, we have to pray when it’s time for Salah. Oh and save your excuses, because you don’t need a mosque/prayer rug to pray, as the whole Earth is made a ‘masjid‘ (place of prostration) for us.
Prior to the construction of the mosque, the Prophet offered the prayers at sheep-folds.
This Hadith reminded me of a nasheed/song “The Crazy Spots I’ve Prayed” by Dawud Wharnsby Ali. Give it a listen!
This is in relation to this post:
Did you know? There are more than 99 Names of Allah. The versions of Asma al-Husna we hear have many unauthentic Names. Meaning, those names aren’t mentioned in the Quran or the Hadith. For example, al-Mulk (the Kingdom).
This nasheed has the authentic names and has a beautiful melody. Do listen!
And wouldn’t it be awesome if we memorize the names? Get motivated:
Abu Huraira reported that the Messenger of Allah said, “Allah has ninety-nine names, one hundred less one. Whoever ‘ahsaha’ [enumerates them, believes in them, ponders their meanings, worships Allah by them and supplicates with them, and acts by them according to one’s belief in them] will enter Paradise. (Recorded by al-Bukhari and Muslim)
Today’s nasheed is beautiful! Mostly because of the language it is sung in – Arabic. But the lyrics, too, are awesome. (Subtitles will help.)
The title: La Ilaha Illa Allah -it’s something that brings all of us together. It’s very strong. And so is the message of this video:
You’ll enjoy this, inshaAllah.
