Poem: The importance of Salaat.....

The importance of Salaat.....

Taken from islamiczone2.netfirms.com

Salaat is a basic pillar of Islam
It is mentioned again and again in the Quran
The importance of prayer is in seven hundred places
But in the Mosque, do you see many young faces?
Praying in the mosque gives 27 times the reward
Pray with the intention that you’re pleasing your Lord
When you walk to the Mosque, just remember within
You gain a reward and you’re losing a sin
For every step towards your destination
This is a blessing from Allah SWT to his creation
The Quran has foretold, that before you are dead
‘say your prayers before your prayers are said’
our Prophet SAWS said about those who miss prayer
fifteen punishments they’ll have to bear
six in this life, three on passing away
three in the grave and three on judgements day
for missing Fajr at the start of the day
the glow of the face is taken away
the punishment for missing the salaat of Zohar
there will be no blessing from your income no more
for missing Asr, the middle prayer of the day
the strength of the body is taken away
by missing Maghrib, remember one thing
you will not be benefited by your offspring
for missing Ishaa at the end of the day
the peace of your sleep will be taken away
while seeing elders pray at the mosque door
remember as a young person, your reward is 70 times more
read Salaat punctually, read it with care
on Judgement day, we will be asked about prayer
that’s the first question, so take this advice
Salaat is the key to paradise
spread this word to Muslim sisters and brothers
Salaat will separate Muslims from others
Salaat is a blessing which Allah SWT gave
it will intercede and protect us in the grave
when it comes eventually, to the day of rising
the believers body washed by Wudhu will be shining
for the believers who are regular in offering Salaat
it becomes a light of guidance on the As-Siraat*
don’t miss the prayer Asr at any cost
it will be like your family and wealth is lost
the Ayat-ul-Kursi after fard, should be read
it will lead you to paradise (insha Allah) after you’re dead
not reading Salaat will lead you to hell
surrounded by serpents in a deep well
read your Salaat whilst still in your prime
and read the Durood Shareef** in your spare time
you’ll get ten rewards, the Lord (Insha Allah) will accept your pleas
and you’ll be closer to Allah SWT by ten more degrees
so embrace Islam with all your heart
and remember the key is reading Salaat

* As-Siraat is a bridge across hell, as thin as a hair. Only believers will be able to pass over it.
** Durood Shareef is the prayer said upon the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhe Wa Sallam)

SWT - Subhanahu Wa Tala
SAW - Sallallahu Alayhe Wa Sallam
