The beauty of the masjid

An experience by a sister who wishes to remain anonymous. 

Bismillah Ar Rahman Ar Raheem

All praise be to Allah Subhana Wa ta’ala

In the night time, Muslim men and women began entering the masjid with to pray salat al ‘Isha. The full moon lighted the sky and it reflected upon the faces of the Muslims. All the Muslims, in the best of their garments entering in peace coming from everywhere. All from different nations gathered to pray.

I stood there standing; the fresh breeze was passing by. The moment of heart surrendering to Allah Subhana Wa ta’ala. The fountain water rushing falling and moving making pleasant sounds.

The call to prayer started. Everyone is silenced. The speech of Allah started when the imam started reciting beautiful verses of the Qur’an. All standing shoulder to shoulder. Hearts united under the shade of Allah’s mercy.

The moment of beauty to witness in this life. Allahu Akbar!

The worship of the believers in the house of Allah. The truth of Islam glows in our hearts with faith. The shahada on our lips. The smiles we give in charity. The sunnah we follow. To Allah we obey. His obedience makes us feel so great. In the path of Allah, we submit to Him. Verily, we belong to Him and to Him we return.

Allah’s Messenger SalAllahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said, 

“Say! Here we are returning, repenting, worshipping (Allah) and to our Lord we offer praise.” Ar Raheeq al Makhtum.

“Then, as for the foam, it passes away as scum upon the banks, while that which is for the good of mankind remains in the earth.” (13:17)
