Salaah The Best Gift

Tired feet touch the soft prayer mat and the heart finds peace,
Almost immediately the limbs are put at ease,
Spiritual and physical benefits in each posture,
All the blessings we’ll never know for sure.

The prayer, so perfect and holistic,
Everything beautifully in sync,
Until we reach the ultimate position,
Bowed down, head and body flat, completely surrendered in prostration.

The words that are uttered have brought many to tears,
That is, of course, for those with open hearts and ears.
It shouldn’t matter how long you take,
Everything else should be left to wait.

The hustle and bustle of the world drowned out,
Remembering what this world and our existence is really about,
Everything seems so insignificant and small in comparison,
The prayer bringing us together in unison.

Some have spoken about a light that emanates,
We cannot all see, but there are different states.
The servant connecting with the Master, the Creator,
Building our faith, stronger and stronger.

Ah! This is a special kind of sweetness,
That we simple human beings are allowed to witness,
The ultimate truth, in the best of ways,
And it really doesn’t matter what who says.

There were times when I used to take it for granted,
Forgetting the treasure I had being given,
But with Allah’s will I was brought back to my senses,
And now I am no longer content to sit on fences.

I wouldn’t give it up for the world,
Because it surpasses all that we know,
The goodness is only for our own benefit,
And this salaah, this prayer is truly the best gift.

(SubhanAllah, Alhamdullillah, Allahu Akbar)

I also just want to say Jazakallah Khayr to brother Ibn Hanif who invited me to post on this blog after reading this poem on my blog, Muslim Women Exposed. And Jazakallah Khayr to sister Nuriddeen as well. May Almighty Allah reward both of you and accept all your efforts in His path, Inshaa Allah.
"Good deeds are not equal to the evil ones. Repel other's evil deeds with your good deeds. You will see that he with whom you had enmity, will become your close friend.
But none will attain this quality except those who patiently endure and none will attain this quality except those who are truly fortunate."

Masha Allah,

Sister, JazakAllah khayr for accepting the invitation.

One of the benefits of Salaah that I see is that it brings Muslims near to each other.

Alhamdulillah, We praise Allah that here a poem about Salaah (Prayer)connected blog authors.

Sister Zarina, You too can invite more authors to this blog and they can join after the approval of sister Nuriddeen by contacting her via the contact me page on the blog.

Sister Nuriddeen, May Allah reward you as well for your continual contribution to the blog after my departure from the blog.

I wish that only female authors are considered for the membership of the blog.

Once again accept a heartiest welcome from a Muslim brother and sister.

May Allah accept, ameen.

"1 Successful indeed are the believers,

2 Who are humble in their prayers,

3 And who keep aloof from what is vain,

4 And who are givers of poor-rate,

5 And who guard their private parts,

6 Except before their mates or those whom their right hands possess, for they surely are not blamable,

7 But whoever seeks to go beyond that, these are they that exceed the limits;

8 And those who are keepers of their trusts and their covenant,

9 And those who keep a guard on their prayers;

10 These are they who are the heirs,

11 Who shall inherit the Paradise; they shall abide therein. "

[Al-Mumenoon (The Believers) Verses 1-11]

"Rabbi ijAAalnee muqeema alssalati wamin thurriyyatee rabbana wtaqabbal duAAai" Ameen.

14:40 O my Lord! make me one who establishes regular Prayer, and also (raise such) among my offspring O our Lord! and accept Thou my Prayer. " Ameen

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah.

Alhamdullillah, it is truly beautiful when we can connect as brothers and sisters in Islam. Although we are in different parts of the world, our hearts are still connected by our deen, Islam.

Jazakallak Khayr once more dear brother and sister, and if there is any sister that I think would be able to contribute here then inshaa Allah I will direct her to you.

May Allah bless you both always and may Allah grant all the Muslims peace.

Ameen to your duaa brother Ibn Hanif.
