Allah Taãla says in the Noble Qurãn, 'You are the best of nations sent to man. You command good and forbid evil and you believe in Allah'. (Aali Imraan).
Allah Taãla states that one reason for this Ummah being titled as the best of Ummah, is the practice of commanding good and preventing evil'.
the prayer is started do not run for it but just walk for it calmly and
pray whatever you get, and complete whatever is missed. "
please learn from the above Hadith please. Often, in the Musjid, when
the 'Jamaat' has started, the Imaam has lowered himself in the Ruku, you
may find a brother who has just entered the
Musjid, he is witnessing the Imaam lowering himself in the Ruku
poisition with the namazee brothers behind him; and this brother feels
just MUST catch the Ruku position so he doesn’t miss a Rakaat, and
therefore you can hear him 'sprint' towards the row , 'thud thud' along
the musjid floor, his distinguished sprint , just so that he doesn’t
have to read another rakaat after the Jaamaat has finished!
please, take a chill pill, when you enter the Musjud and the Imaan is
in the Ruku position; if you make it fine, but hey, don’t end up getting
all flustered about it such that you need to all of sudden take a
sprint! "ZZZooooooooooooom !! "
those overweight brothers, you don’t do yourself justice, because your
sprint towards the line where we are all standing, all we can hear is
you 'puffing and panting' when you do stand in line with the jaamat,
trying to get a hold of your breath!... Not good brothers!
it easy. Salah is suppose a time for YOU to connect with Allah swt, to
stand in front of your Creator, in awe and obedience, to deliver all the
necessary actions of Salah in a manner of ease, lowering yourself
gently into the Ruku, and then lowering yourself back and forward in
ease , especially at Sajdah, where the servant of Allah swt is most
closest to his Master, and he pauses in the Sajdah position for a 'dua'
to be whispered from the very core of his heart.
it easy brothers, chill out and relax.. Salah is not a race, its a time
to be in control of yourself, to take the Worldly burden off your
shoulders and to spend time with Allah swt, a time which you cant
imagine is essentially very very precious.
