This is to remind myself and others of the importance of Qiamulail or the night prayers.By the way ,when was the last time I did the Qiamulail? If the answer is "I can't remember...",then may I remind myself and others to take some time to do this special ibadah for our own benefits-in the world and the hereafter.
Personally I found it a bit difficult to do it individually.It is better to participate in group prayers organised by our masjid. I am pleased to announce that our masjid As-Shafie at Taman Maluri,Kuala Lumpur is organising the qiamulail tomorrow morning at 3am.All are welcome.
Below is an excerpt of the article mentioned below:
|39:9||أَمَّنْ هُوَ قَانِتٌ آنَاء اللَّيْلِ سَاجِدًا وَقَائِمًا يَحْذَرُ الْآخِرَةَ وَيَرْجُو رَحْمَةَ رَبِّهِ قُلْ هَلْ يَسْتَوِي الَّذِينَ يَعْلَمُونَ وَالَّذِينَ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ إِنَّمَا يَتَذَكَّرُ أُوْلُوا الْأَلْبَابِ|
"Is one who is devoutly obedient during periods of the night, prostrating and standing [in prayer], in fear of the hereafter and in hope of the mercy of his Lord [like one who does not]? Say:' Are those who know equal to those who do not know?' Only they will remember [who are] people of understanding." [Az-Zumar, 9] The meaning of this, is that there is no comparison between one who has these qualities and one who sleeps throughout the night and neglects his soul, not acknowledging the promise and threat of His Lord?
