Daily Prompt: Just Another Day
Our days are organized around numerous small actions we repeat over and over. What’s your favorite daily ritual?
My favorite is the early morning ritual of saying my Fajr (morning) prayer.
At 5.30am, the alarm on my iPad wakes me up. I rush to the bathroom to do Wudu, the ritual of washing before saying the prayer.
After saying Fajr prayer, I read the Quran, and then Azkars.
I begin the day with remembrance of God, certain in my heart that He will watch over me, and keep me from any harm.
Once in a blue moon, I don’t wake up with the alarm and miss my prayer. That happens very rarely, but when it does, I am miserable. Of course I say the Qada, (missed) prayer with Zuhr, (noon) prayer.
Before my iPad I used to rely on my alarm clock to wake me up. Sometimes I would forget to turn on the alarm. If before sleeping I whispered to my Guarding Angels, (there are two with every human being) to wake me up, I would wake with the sound of swoosh of wings. It would be so loud.
Go on try it. Tell your Angels to wake you up.
You are going to be surprised.
