We Pray For 4000 years or So Sometimes!


I was watching an Islamic show with the hubby a few days ago on a foreign channel and he related a story for me because I don’t fully understand his language. So the story goes that one day Djibril prayed for 4000 years of the Akhiret time. And when he finished, he asked Allah if anybody has ever worshiped HIM, Allah, for that amount of time. Allah replied in the affirmative and added that in the future His servants who while praying get distracted but carry on with the act of praying would have been on the same level because they fought their nafs who made them wonder, ”Shoot! How many rakats did I just do?”

That made me smile and praise His name more. Why? Because sometimes no matter how focused I try to be in salat, my mind wonders off and I feel sad that I did a poor job performing my salat. Subhanallah, may Allah accept all our prayers and forgive our distractions during praying, ameen! I mean we pray more than our lifetime on this earth! 🙂
