Get your cleaning gloves ready!

27 Aug

When the woman who used to clean the Masjid died (while he was unaware of it) the Prophet ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) asked about her. Abu Hurayrah ( رضي الله عنه ) narrated: A dark complexioned woman (or a youth) used to sweep the mosque. The Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم missed her (or him) and inquired about her (or him). The people told him that she (or he) had died. He asked why they did not inform him, and it appears as if they had treated her (or him) or her (or his) affairs as of little account. He (the Prophet) said: Lead me to her (or his) grave. They led him to that place and he said prayer over her (or him) and then remarked: Verily, these graves are full of darkness for their dwellers. Verily, the Mighty and Glorious Allaah illuminates them for their occupants by reason of my prayer over them.

[Saheeh Muslim, the Book of Prayer, No. 2088]

I know shaytaan has a number of ways to make us either procrastinate or come up with a 101 excuses for not being able to commit to a good deed on a regular (everyday) basis, but during this blessed month we all make an extra effort to go for taraweeh, so staying back a little later on a Friday night wouldn’t hurt! Besides, other than the fact that our reward is multiplied manifold by Allaah, its also a good training experience for brothers.

Now lets get our cleaning gloves ready!
