Ramadhan 1435, Day 1.
In the name of Allah, Our Creator, The Most Beneficial, The Most Merciful.
Surah Al-Baqara, Verse 153:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَعِينُوا بِالصَّبْرِ وَالصَّلَاةِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ مَعَ الصَّابِرِينَ
O you who believe! Seek help in patience and As-Salat (the prayer). Truly! Allah is with As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.).
Who do we run to when we need help?
How do we act when we are in troubled?
Who do we ask from when we are in need?
Where do we first turn to when we are troubled?
Indeed, The Most Merciful has summed up the answers in the above verse.
Stand up right now & pray if you are troubled: you will find tranquility and peace in your soul. As long as you perform the prayer sincerely with humility, no doubt it will have this effect on you.
The prophet (saw) when afflicted with hardship would say: “O Bilal! Give us comfort and call for the prayer”.
Let’s turn our hearts to Allah and pray to Him, for indeed, He is the source of all comfort.
