Oh Allah (SWT) We Need You


How can I just walk by

How can I just ignore the pain I see

Is this what society wants, has taught

For me to see a human being in pain, without a home without support

I am to walk by and forget it
Where have we gone wrong, where are the versus that we are taught 

Why don’t they jump to our minds

Why don’t they make us stop

To give charity, to give a smile, to give support
Oh Allah (SWT) we say we practice and follow

Oh Allah (SWT) we say we understand your word

In truth we hide and forget it in order to live our  busy lives
I cry of shame, I cry of hopelessness

I am but a whisper, a small helping hand

Oh Allah (SWT) enlighten us, let us see your splendor your majestical guidance

Oh Allah (SWT) Help you creations to live in harmony and to help each other as your word has been written

My Daily Prayer


Allah (SWT) please forgive me if any of this information is incorrect or not 100% accurate. You are Gracious and Forgiving, I am just trying to shed light in the darkness that is  surrounding ALL your children. Help me and guide me to -make my words be understood. – Ameen

As a continuation of a conversation I started with Joe Gregory, about the post I Submitted called Allah Akbar Allah Akbar. I understand that right now the media is portraying Muslims as terrorist that want to kill all Non-Muslims. I can understand the fear. 

What I like to see is that people that have questions are starting to ask them. We as Muslims have the obligation to talk to them, if we don’t then how can we fight off this stigma?

Muslims have to pray 5 times a day, this is an OBLIGATION. Of course you have some that do not pray, others never miss a prayer and there are still others that make up their prayers before going to bed.

Just as Christians I’m sure that are a variety on how they practice their religion Muslims also has it. Here is just one of MANY prayers that Muslims can pray. This is a prayer that I to this date have not been able to memorize, but I have my book that guides me.

Hopefully this can shed more light to those who have an open mind and are willingly to hear what Islam and us Muslims practice.

When you pray there are certain Ra’kat which is just meaning how many times you need to say the prayer through out the day. These two different prayers are recited when you pray.

Example:

For the Frajr prayer you pray the first prayer then the second prayer that is 2 Ra’kat. For the Zuhr, Asr and Isha prayer you pray them first prayer, then second prayer the first then second. For the Maghrib prayer you do the first prayer, then second then first and then you add the last part of the second prayer towards the end.

2 Ra’kat is for Fajr prayer ( morning, when the sun is rising), 4 Ra’kat for Zuhr prayer ( around lunch time), 4 Ra’kat for Asr prayer (early afternoon), 3 Ra’kat for Maghrib prayer (when the sun is setting), 4 Ra’Kat for Isha pray (once the sun is completely gone)

These time vary depending on the city and state or country you live in. Also you try to pray towards Makka which is for Muslims the Holy Land.

Starting Prayer

First Ra’kat:

Allah Akbar

O Allah! keep me apart from my sins (faults) as you have kept apart the east and west. O Allah clean me from my sins as a white garment is cleaned from dirt. O Allah wash me off my sins with water, snow and hail.

I seek refuge in Allah, the All -Kn0wing, the All-Hearing, from Satan the accursed, from his evil suggestions and from his puffing up and from his witchcraft. In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. All praise and thanks are Allah’s, the Lord of the Alamin (Trustworthy). The Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. The Only Owner of the day of Recompense. You (Alone) we worship, and You (Alone) we ask for help. Guide us to the Straight Way. The way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your anger, nor of those who went astray.

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. He is Allah, the only One, Allah the Self-Sufficient Master, He begets not, nor was He begotten. There is no one co-equal or comparable unto Him.

Allahu Akbar (Allah is the Most Great)

Glorified is my Lord, the Most Great (recite 3 times)

Allah hears those who praise him. O our Lord, and all praise if to you

Allah is the Most Great

Glorified is my Lord, The Most High (recite 3 times)

O Allah, forgive me and have mercy on me and guide me and hold me and heal me and provide sustenance for me and raise me up

Allah is the Most Great

Glorified is my Lord, the Most High (recite 3 times)

Allah is the Most Great

**Ending of first Ra’kat***

Second Ra’kat (also used for the last Ra’kat)

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. All praise and thanks are Allah’s, The Lord of the Alamin (Trustworthy). The Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. The Only Owner of the day of Recompense. You (Alone) we worship, and you (Alone) we ask for help. Guide us to the Straight Way. The way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger, nor of those who went astray. – Ameen

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. Verily, We have granted you Al-Kauthar (a river in Paradise). Therefore turn in prayer to your Lord and sacrifice (To Him Only). For he who hates you, he will be cut off (from prosperity in this world and in the Hereafter).

Allahu Akbar

Gloried is my Lord, The Most Great (recite 3 times)

Allah hears those who praise him. O our Lord, and all praise is you.
