Hearts longing for Paradise
Have you heared the story of a righteous woman, whose husband died, leaving her with 2 childrens? When they grew up, the first thing she taught them was to worship and obey Allah (swt), and to pray qiyam al-layl (night prayers).
She said to her sons; “No moment of the night should pass in our house without someones standing in prayer and remembering Allah (swt).” They said: “What do you mean, O´Mother? She said: “We will divide the night in three. One of you should stand and pray for the the first third, and the other for the second third, then I will stand and pray for the last third, and then wake you up to pray Fahjr (dawn).”
They said ” We hear and obey; O´Mother:” When the Mother died, the 2 sons did not give up praying qiyam al-layl, because their hearts were filled with the love of obedience and worship, and the sweetest moments of their lives were when they they stood and prayed at night, so they divided the night between them, when one of them become sick, the other stood and prayed the whole night.
“LIFE AROUND US WITH ALL ITS BEAUTY AND NOBILITY IS A REAL INVITATION TO HAPPINESS.”
(From the Book “You can be The Happiest Woman in the World” (A Treasure chest of reminders ” By Dr.A´id al-Qarni)
