We All Need Spiritual Nourishment…

We All Need Spiritual Nourishment…

Have You Taken Yours Today?

A person who regularly went to the Masjid, wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to Masjid. ‘I’ve gone for 30 years now,’ he wrote, ‘and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 Lectures. But for the life of me, I can’t remember a single one of them. So, I think I’m wasting my time and the Imams are wasting theirs by giving Lectures at all.’

This started a real controversy in the ‘Letters to the Editor’ column, much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this reply:

‘I’ve been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this: They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today.

Likewise, if I had not gone to Masjid for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!’

“And there is due from the servant to Allaah, in every moment from his time, servitude which will advance him or bring him nearer to Allaah. So if he spends his time in servitude to Allaah, he will advance to his Lord and if he busies himself with desires, or relaxation or inactivity, he will lag behind. And the servant never ceases either to be moving forward or falling behind, and there is no stopping whilst on the path, ever.”  – Ibn Al Qayyim

“A warning to mankind, To any of you that chooses to go forward (by working righteous deeds), or to remain behind (by commiting sins), Every person is a pledge for what he has earned.” – Soorah al-Muddaththir
