Next time you come to masjid, remember the very purpose why you are actually going there. 🙂

It’s just sad…

It’s just sad that sometimes we get into a masjid that is less taken care of. Let alone the cleanliness of it but actually the people who come to pray to that masjid.

A masjid is a place of prayer, a place where worshippers need peaceful atmosphere, solemnity and silence that they may concentrate and remain focused on their prayers.

How many of us nowadays find people who come to the masjid to have that pep talk or talking about one certain person? Astagfirullah.

And we cannot deny that, we do see people who come to the masajid with loud voices, or that they talk as if its their own houses.

Not to mention the way some of us arrange our slippers, sandals and footwear at the doorstep of the masjid, it’s just chaos or that we hear phones ringing while the khatib is making khutbah or during the prayer itself. Why?

Why do we do such things in a place of worship?

Did you know that ‘Umar Ibn Al Khattab Radiyallahu Anhu used to forbid people from raising their voices in the Masjid?

And we all know how ‘Umar Radiyallahu Anhu was. Here’s a bit of story.

As Saaib Ibn Yazzed Radiyallahu Anhu narrated that once while he was standing in the masjid, a man suddenly began to throw some peebles at me [in order to draw my attention to him].

So As Saaib Radiyallahu Anhu looked around and saw ‘Umar IBn Al Khattab Radiyallahu Anhu.

‘Umar then told him to go and bring back those two men and when he returned with them, ‘Umar asked them, “Who are you? (or perhaps he said, Where are the two of you from?)

They replied, “We are from the inhabitants of At Taif”. Umar then said, “Had you been from the inhabitants of this city [Madinah], I would have inflicted a painful punishment upon you, for the two of you are raising your voices in the masjid of the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu Alaihi Wassalaam.”

We strive to be better Muslims, and we pray that Allah Azza Wa Jall helps us on this but also we need to make effort on being one, and being mindful of our action especially when we are in the masajid is but one of the ways we can better ourselves as followers of the sunnah.

Try to begin by arranging the footwear we use whenever we enter the masjid, I am not saying arrange all the footwear there but you yourself should put aside that footwear of yours in a proper way that it doesn’t become a barrier between a person who will enter the masjid.

Then when you are inside the masjid, remember the reason why you are there, you are there not to have a chit chat with your friends, but you are there to worship Allah Azza Wa Jall, do not leave your niyyah at home as you leave for the masjid.

Next time you come to masjid, remember the very purpose why you are actually going there.

And we pray that Allah Azza Wa Jall forgives our shortcomings and help us become better Muslims. Amin.

Pray your Salah and be good to others too, When you remember Allah, He remembers you. Do you know when you hear or recite the Qur'an, Allah is telling you that He is the One.
