Mishary Alafasy
Surah Al-Muddaththir / Chapter #74

“Except the companions of the right,

[Who will be] in gardens, questioning each other

About the criminals,

[And asking them], ‘What put you into Saqar (Hell)?’

They will say, 'We were not of those who prayed,

Nor did we used to feed the poor.

And we used to enter into vain discourse with those who engaged [in it],

And we used to deny the Day of Judgement

Until there came to us the certainty.’

So there will not benefit them the intercession of [any] intercessors.

Then what is [the matter] with them that they are, from the reminder, turning away

As if they were frightened donkeys

fleeing from a lion?" 

- 74:39-51

كُلُّ نَفْسٍ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ رَهِينَةٌ

“Every soul is held in pledge for what it earns.”

-Suratul Muddaththir (74), Verse 38

anonymous asked:

Salam brother! I don't pray very regularly and I really want to start reading 5 times a day but for some reason I just find it very difficult to. Is there a way you know of helping me start praying 5 times a day? Jazakhallah khair! :)

Walaikum Salam,

I could write something to motivate you but if you want real help, you need to install the fear of Allah in your heart, nothing else will come close to making you motivated enough.

Here is an ayah of the Qur’an, ponder up on it and think about how it should motivate you…

What has caused you to enter Hell?”
They will say: “We were not of those who used to offer their Salat (prayers)
Nor we used to feed Al-Miskin (the poor);
And we used to talk falsehood (all that which Allah hated) with vain talkers.
And we used to deny the Day of Recompense…

Surah Al-Muddaththir, Verse 42-46

I know it may not have been what you were looking for, but salah is really important to us, don’t let go of it.

May Allah forgive us for the Salah we have missed.
