A STORY OF A MAN WHO WAS GOING TO OFFER “FAJR” PRAYER!!(Dr Mansur Sakkwato)


A man woke up early in
order to Pray the Fajr
Prayer in the masjid.. He got dressed, made his
ablution and was on his
way to the masjid. On
his way to the masjid,
the man fell and his
clothes got dirty. He got up, brushed himself
off,and headed home. At
home, He changed His
Clothes, made his
ablution, and was,
again,on his way to the masjid. On his way to
the masjid, He Fell again
and at the Same Spot!
He, again, got up,
brushed himself off and
headed home. At home he, once again, Changed
His Clothes, made his
ablution and was on his
way to the masjid. On
his way to the masjid,
He Met a Man Holding a Lamp. He asked the man
of his identity and the
man replied ‘I Saw You
Fall Twice on your way
to the masjid, So I
Brought a Lamp so I can Light Your Way. ‘The
first man thanked him
prospectively and the
two where on their way
to the masjid. Once at
the masjid, the first man asked the man with the
lamp to come in and
pray Fajr with him. The
second man refused.The
first man asked him a
couple more times and, again, the answer was
the same. The first man
asked him why he did
not wish to come in and
pray. He man replied I
am Shaitaan (devil/ evil) The man was shocked at
this reply. Shaitan went
on to explain, ‘I saw you
on your way to the
masjid and it was I who
made you fall. When you went home, cleaned
yourself and went back
on your way to the
masjid, Allah forgave all
of your sins. I made you
fall a second time, and even that did not
encourage you to stay
home, but rather, you
went back on your way
to the masjid. Because of
that, Allah forgave all the sins of the people of
your household. I was
AFRAID if i made you fall
one more time, then
Allah will forgive the
sins of the people of your village, so I made
sure that you reached
the masjid safely..
‘So do not let Shaitan
benefit from his
actions.Do not put off a good that you intended
to do as you never know
how much reward you
might receive from the
hardships you encounter
while trying to achieve that good!!
