My best friend is a Christian, and I am a Muslim. Some may think we form an odd pair, but I beg to differ. We love each other for the sake of God and treat each other like sisters would one another. This month’s issue is about balancing religion and your day-to-day activities. To many, this may seem like a no-brainer, but it is easy to fall into a rut of bad habits.
This month I realized that because I work a lot from home, I have the tendency to pray fajr, have breakfast (when I remember lol), and begin working. Once I start, I rarely stop until it is about 6-7 pm, and that because the room gets dim, and I have to switch on the light. Now, the reason why I am sharing this is that I end up praying dhuhr, asr, and sometimes maghrib at the end of the day.
When I told my best friend that I had not been praying on time, she said: “religion has to be a focal point. Do not forget how comforting the word of God is”. That was enough to clear my eyes and make me smell the coffee.
In life, Allah swt is continuously making way for you to get back on track. It may come from the most unlikely of sources, but as long as your heart is open to it, you will see it.
Prayers on time and the reward is infinite. So why delay what you can do now for later?
