Gems from today's Friday prayer:
Ghafla- the sin of forgetting Allah
If we engage in the obligatory prayers, its impossible to fall into ghafla. Provided its a prayer from the heart which focuses on movements and words of the salah.
All of your worries and concerns go away when the prayer goes the way its supposed to be. The ideal prayer that the Prophet (Saw) prescribed.
When you are in your salah, and you think of who you’re praying to, it brings you back. It brings you back to your Lord and who you are supposed to be. --------
The Creator of time and space is capable of establishing a direction relationship with all of us at once.We live in these confines of time, Allah is not bound by time. He is the Creator of time.
Allah has blessed us with these 5 daily prayers as a means of two-way communication with Him. Establish prayer to get rid of anxiety, depression, etc. Establish your connection so that you can remember Him. ---------
Aim should be to do the 5 minimum prayers; its an obligation and is in the 2nd pillar.
Your reliance should always be on Allah (Swt). There’s no checks and balances on His power. No one can shut down His government. Allah is never helpless, He is always the provider. Make that relationship with Him. That's the way to contentment and happiness. ------------
