Why Don’t You pray? | Whispers Ep 1

So you’ve missed the alarm for Fajr this morning, and the past few mornings. Stop and ask yourself, why weren’t you able to wake up? Why have you been missing out on your prayers? Are you denying the endless bounties of Allah? Sadly, many Muslims have been neglecting their prayers, despite its importance and despite it being a crucial pillar of Islam. Perhaps you think that you have sinned for far too long and you are unworthy of standing before Allah. Or, perhaps you think you are too cool, and you don’t completely understand its importance just yet. Whatever the reason may be, know that Allah is the most forgiving, the most merciful. Repent to Allah and start praying today. Praying is a direct command that was given by Allah in the Quran:

“And establish prayer and give zakah and bow with those who bow [in worship and obedience].”

Quran, 2:43

Through salah, a person is directly communicating with Allah. Through salah, there is success and vast amounts of rewards given, benefiting us in this life and the next. Through salah, our soul is enriched, pride and arrogance are removed, and our sins are washed away. Through salah, we are shielded against evil, as it says in the Quran:

Recite, [O Muhammad], what has been revealed to you of the Book and establish prayer. Indeed, prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing, and the remembrance of Allah is greater. And Allah knows that which you do.

Quran, 29:45

Whatever the reason may be of why you are not praying, just know that in the end you are at loss. We need Allah, and He does not need us. Don’t let shaytaan convince you that you don’t need salah, it benefits us in every way possible. Please make a change. Start praying NOW.
