The Essence and Heart of Salah

It was common that when the time for prayer came, the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) would turn to Bilal RA (whose duty was to call out the Athaan) and say, “Relieve us with it, O Bilal”. In other words, make the call, Bilal, for what will lighten our heavy burdens and will soothe and comfort us. For when the Prophet was troubled with a difficult matter or much worry, he would turn to prayer. After all, doesn’t Allah say: “and seek (Allah’s) help with patient perseverance and prayer”? (2:45)

Every people have their own method of seeking comfort, relaxation and escape. Some use music, some use exercises like Yoga, and some unfortunately- alcohol. But for us Muslims, we attain the benefits of all of the above and more, from Salah. We resort to the source of all solutions and the source of all peace and relief, Our Beloved, Our Creator.

Wetting The Hands For Masah

Question: Can Masah (passing of a wet hand over the head) be made with the wetness that remains on the hands after washing the hands during Wudhu or does a person need to use fresh water?

Answer: One can either use the wetness that remains on the hands for the Masah of the head or one can wet the hands afresh. Both options are allowed.

Three sons left home, went out on their own and prospered. Getting back together, they discussed the gifts they were able to give their elderly mother. The first said, "I built a big house for our mother." The second said, "I sent her a Mercedes with a driver." The third smiled and said, "I've got you both beat. You remember how mom enjoyed reading her novel? And you know she can't see very well. So I sent her a remarkable parrot that recites the entire novel. It took the author in the industry 12 years to teach him. He's one of a kind. Mama just has to name the chapter and page, and the parrot recites it."

Soon thereafter, mom sent out her letters of thanks: "Milton," she wrote one son, "The house you built is so huge. I live in only one room, but I have to clean the whole house."

"Gerald," she wrote to another, "I am too old to travel. I stay most of the time at home, so I rarely use the Mercedes. And the driver is so rude!"
"Dearest Donald," she wrote to her third son, "You have the good sense to know what your mother likes. The chicken was delicious."
