Surah Al-Waqiah 56: - (The Imminent Event)

With the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most-Merciful


Sayyidna Abdullah Ibn Mas'ood's Didactic Story on his Deathbed - lbn Kathir cites a story on the authority of Ibn Asakir from Abu Zabyah that when Sayyidna Abdullah Ibn Mas'ud RA was lying on his deathbed, Sayyidna Uthman RA paid him a visit and the following conversation ensued.

Uthman RA: "What are you suffering from?"
Ibn Masood RA: "from my sins."
Uthman RA: "Do you desire anything?"
Ibn Masood RA: "Yes, Allah's mercy."
Uthman RA: "Shall I call a doctor for you?"
Ibn Masood RA: "It is the doctor who has given me the ailment."
Uthman RA: "May I send you an allowance from the public treasury?"
Ibn Masood RA: "I have no need for it."
Uthman RA: "Accept it, [please]. You are leaving daughters behind you. It will help them."
Ibn Masood RA: "You are worried about my daughters that they must not suffer from poverty. I have no such worry, because I have instructed them to recite Surah Al-Waqi'ah every night. I have heard the Messenger of Allah (Peace Be Upon Him) say, “Whoever recites Surah Al-Waqi'ah every night will never suffer from poverty'."

lbn Kathir, after citing this story from Ibn ', has supported it with other chains of transmitters and other sources.

I just cant handle this feeling any more
The Guilt I feel each time I miss a Salaah
I need to turn to Allah
So that he can fix this Sore
To guide me in the right direction
And remove this continuous infection

All the excuses to avoid the prayer
My clothes are dirty, I have no time
All these things which I cant call mine

Help me O Allah,
I want to be a five time Namaazi
You are the only one to make accusazi
Don’t want to be of those who don’t care
Wanna be of those who like to share

Please fix this sore
So that I don’t feel this pain no more
Let me not be any situation
That will cause this frustration and manifestation.

All I want is to be your Wali
It will be great Splendour
InshAllah may Allah grant me this favour

This is how I feel please make Dua for me…
