I know many of us (believers) have been through this, and I personally experienced my boat sinking and I know it is tough getting it back up. But if you won't understand why you have to get back up then you're definitely going to drown. My point of bringing this topic up is not to scare you away by telling you about the torment of hellfire or the agony in the grave, surely I'll do that by the end of our short exchange, but before everything else I want you to know what benefits and positive change prayers can bring to your life! BENEFITS OF PRAYING There are actually a lot; me and you could go on and on about how practicing Islam can benefit you and the people around you, but this once, let me just mention a few of those that I experienced first-hand. Health Prayer can be a source of exercise for most people. It keeps check on your physical fitness. All the obligatory acts in prayers benefit greatly to ones health. For example, going to ruku and sajda and tash'had saves one from back pain and knee-joints pain. Prayer also wards off many illnesses. Down to Earth When you go down in sujood, it gives you a feeling of how small and insignificant you are in front of all the blessings and creations of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. He made so much, and still blesses you and showers upon you from good. Prayer kills your ego and brings you closer to Allah and the reality. Focusing on how you're alone in this world, and how only Allah is your supporter and benefactor even in the time of adversity. Strengthens the heart and the belief Prayer gives you the strength that you are lacking when facing adversity. It becomes a driving force when met with a lot of short-comings. It strengthens ones resolve to keep moving forward and facing new challenges while knowing that Allah never burdens a soul more than what it can bear. Closeness to Allah When we recite the verses sent down to us Humans by Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, we naturally feel close to Him. His words are the reflection upon our own-selves. When we make dua to Him and kneel down to Him, it shows that we are ready to give in our desires for pleasing Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. And that: He is the only "one" we can turn to in the time of adversity... There's nobody else, is there? Countenance and Spiritual Pleasantness Did you know that prayers make your face and spirit brighter? Who wouldn't want their face glowing with happiness and zeal. This not only allows others to look at you in good light but also brings a smile to their faces (especially your family). And it takes off a lot of tension from their shoulders (for some reason). Keeps you away from sins and keeps sins away form you Now this is note-worthy, because both sound just about the same. So where lies the difference? The difference is that there in you will come a sense of responsibility and a sense of accountability once you start praying. You will become more aware of your performance near Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, and you'd want to please him more and more. Who wouldn't want beautiful reward from Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى?And alternatively, Allah will keep you away from sins with his authority over you if he finds your actions pleasing. And no doubt, he is the most merciful and the most benevolent. Along with oft-forgiving. Gets rid of laziness and grooms punctuality Most of the time we are extremely lazy when it comes to our responsibilities and obligations. But once we start being punctual in prayers habitually, we (Insha'Allah) will become more aware of the limited time we have and the utilization of it. Prayer somewhat grooms the instinct of time within you. When you start praying five times a day, you'll begin to realize if you're spending the remaining time the right way. You will have thoughts like: Am I fulfilling my religious obligations correctly? Is Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى going to be pleased enough with the current me? Have I been listening to every words my parents say? Have I done the job that I must in time? Sense of Accountability I know I am kinda repeating myself here, but I couldn't just skip this point. Because this one is very significant when it comes to prayers. In our daily life, if we skip a prayer, do you know how many things go wrong then? How many times we attempt sins and bad acts? Have you ever reflected upon them?Prayer gives you a chance of reflection. And in the future it keeps you intact and in-check that you don't fall astray to bad acts from Satan. Keeps you pure and clean Before going to prayer, you remember, that you have to be Tahir (pure from any impurity). Thus this single remembrance can keep you more than enough clean and pure. Also, performing ablution three-to-five or more so times a day, protects you from Satan and his devilish whispers. Takes away nightmares and bad dreams I am sure many of us had nightmares or dreams that were bad, something you wish you'd never seen. But if you sleep after doing a wudu, and with faith that Allah and His angels will protect you from such dreams (that come from Satan), you'll be protected. WHAT DOES THE QURAN SAY ABOUT PRAYERS? I hope this thread will open your eyes to the importance of prayers and will bring you closer to Allah. If I made a mistake somewhere in the text, then it is solely from me. Forgive me, as I am only human. P.s. Thanks to my brothers and sisters here, they gave me confidence enough to post my material here. lol. I have some serious confidence issues. :P Anyways, thanks to everybody for reading and supporting! Jazak Allah Khair. Hope it will be helpful to at least a single soul!

Salam brothers and sisters, As Ayyam e Fatimiyya go by, I thought that I share some information about tasbeeh Fatima Zahra. Origins Imam Ali ibn Talib (as), Fatimah Zahra's husband, once told Ibn Wahid a story about Prophet Muhammad's (pbuh) most beloved daughter. Imam Ali ibn Talib (as) said, Fatimah Zahra's (pbuh) hands were blistered from constant grinding; her neck had become sore from carrying water; her clothes would become dirty from sweeping the floor. When Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) had received an influx of servants from some place, Imam Ali ibn Talib (as) suggested to his wife that she approach her father and ask for a servant. Fatimah Zahra (pbuh) went, but could not speak to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) because of the people who were surrounding him. Next day, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) came to their house, and asked Fatimah Zahra (pbuh) as to why she wanted to see him. Imam Ali ibn Talib (as) told the whole story to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), and said that Fatimah Zahra (pbuh) went to him on his advice. "Fear Allah (SWT), Fatimah," Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said, "Fulfill your obligations to the Lord, and continue with your housework."Then, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said he would give her something that would be better than a helper or anything else she wished in this world, this is when Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) gives Fatimah Zahra (pbuh) the gift of this Tasbih/Tasbeeh and its is known as Tasbih/Tasbeeh of Fatimah Zahra (pbuh). And said when you go to bed at night, read the following: 34 times - Allahu Akbar (Allah is the Greatest) 33 times - Alhamdulillah (Praise be to Allah) 33 times - Subhan Allah (Glory be to Allah) Most of us are well aware of the spiritual benefits of this tasbeeh. We know that reciting this after our wajib prayers is highly recommended, and that it secures our place in the heaven. But, someyhing new I learned in this year's ashra were the medically proven benefits. Well, there's two ways you would recite this tasbeeh, either roll the beads or recite it keeping count on your fingers. When you recite it on your fingers, you're gently pressing the pads of your fingers. This gentle press stimulates the pressure points on your fingers. The pressure points regulate the flow of blood to specific parts of body and keep them well and healthy. This study of pressure points is called "acupuncture". Then, this part of your gums between the front teeth as shown in the picture, is linked to your heart When you recite this tasbeeh, you sah Allah 100 times. SubhanAllah, alhamdullilah, Allahuakbar The emphasis on the "L" you put, between your front teeth, regulates flow to heart. So, along with spiritual benefits, tasbeeh Fatima (a.s) also has physical benefits. Subhanallah. Thankyou for reading. Khudahafiz!
Guest posted a topic in General Islamic Discussion(bismillah) (salam) Surah al-Sad 38 Whoso recites this surah during Friday night Allah would give him and the near and dear ones in the house so much good in this world and the next as would not be given to any except a Prophet or a high ranking angel; all of them would be allowed to go to paradise; even the servant is eligible for the reward. Whoever recites this surah, would get heavenly reward equal to ten times the weight of the mountain Allah made subservient to Prophet Dawud; and would be kept safe from committing minor and major sins. Surah al-Dukhan 44 If recited on Thursday nights, all sins are forgiven and houses are built for the reciter in Jannah. The reward for reciting each letter of this surah is equal to that of freeing a thousand slaves for seeking the pleasure of Allah (s.w.t.). It is narrated from the Holy Prophet that if this surah is recited at night, then seventy thousand angels pray to Allah (s.w.t.) to forgive the sins of the reciter. Imam Muhammad al-Baqir said that whoever recites surah ad-Dukhan in his faraa'idh (compulsory prayers) will be protected from the torment of the Day of Judgement and will easily be able to give his accounts. His book of deeds will also be given to him in his right hand. If kept in one's possession, this surah acts as a protection from the plots of Shaitan. If kept under one's pillow before sleeping at night, there will be no suffering from nightmares and one will always get good dreams. Keeping this surah in a place of business makes the trade prosper. Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq has said that keeping this surah as a talisman ensures protection from the authorities and makes people fond of the wearer. Drinking water in which this surah has been dissolved is a cure for all ailments related to the stomach. Surah al-Ahqaf 46 Whoever recites this surah everyday or on every Friday, Allah would keep him away from trouble and hardships in this world and from painful punishment on the day of reckoning; and virtues ten times the number of men walking on the earth would be recorded to his credit and all his evil deeds would be erased and his rank would be enhanced tenfold. If this surah is written on paper and worn around the neck as a tawiz by a child or his mother or wet nurse he would have enough milk, would grow strong, free from orthopaedic diseases, and also from accidents and mishaps. Whoever writes this surah on a china plate, washes it with Zam Zam water and drinks it, would become a popular person, people would pay attention to what he says, would have a fairly good retaining memory and would attain success in whatever job he undertakes. Surah al-Kahf 18 Whoso recites on Friday night verse 110 of this surah there would be a light for him covering the distance upto Kabah and Bayt al Muqaddas and it would seek forgiveness for him throughout the night, and after death he would be raised among the group of martyrs. Ref : Imamreza.net May Allah(swt) keep us firm and steadfast in the perfect dean of Islam and the beautiful path of Ahlulbayt(as) (wasalam)
