Result of offering prayer regularly

Chapter TAA-HAASurah – 20)

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim. 
(I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

وَلَاتَمُدَّنَّ عَيْنَيْكَ إِلَىٰ مَا مَتَّعْنَا بِهِۦٓ أَزْوَٰجًا مِّنْهُمْ زَهْرَةَ ٱلْحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنْيَا لِنَفْتِنَهُمْ فِيهِ وَرِزْقُ رَبِّكَ خَيْرٌ وَأَبْقَىٰ 131

   وَأْمُرْ أَهْلَكَ بِٱلصَّلَوٰةِ وَٱصْطَبِرْعَلَيْهَا لَا نَسْـَٔلُكَ رِزْقًا نَّحْنُ نَرْزُقُكَ وَٱلْعَٰقِبَةُ لِلتَّقْوَىٰ 132


131b.  And the provision of thy Lord is better and more lasting.


132a.  And enjoin upon thy family worship, and be constant therein.

131b.  Wa  rizqu  Rabbika  khayrunw-wa  ‘abqaa.


132a.  Wa’-mur  ‘ahlaka  bis-Salaati  wastabir  ‘alayhaa.




It is commanded: Result of those works which Allaah Almighty has commanded to do; is certainly very better than the result of worldly works, and the provision given by Him is more advantageous and lasting for you than that gain; which you earn by turning away from the commandments of Allaah Almighty, because profit of the world is a perishable thing which will not be useful after death.


It is better for the mankind that they should never disobey the commandments of Allaah Almighty and they should spend as much time only in the earnings of the world; which is spared from the prescribed works of Allaah Almighty. Don’t worry if the works of the world have remained pending due to performing Allaah’s prescribed works. But it is sign of misfortune if disorder has occurred in the obedience of the commandment of Allaah Almighty due to being involved in worldly matters.


Now listen to the Commandment of Allaah Almighty! He says: Lay stress on the people to offer prayer. Its best way is that at first; they should order to the members of their families for offering prayer, not only verbally but practically they should themselves offer prayers regularly as an example. Then members of their families will follow them and offer prayers also at proper times. It will be more effectual than ordering them verbally. And when other people will observe that members of your family have been worshipping, they will also begin to offer prayer regularly. Result of obeying the Command of Allaah Almighty and offering the prayer regularly will be that He will bless your earnings of this world and make you rich with His favors and honors in the Hereafter.
