Climbing 

As I was covering my head with a dopatta to say my Fajr prayer, my grandson Sn called me. He wanted me to come and see something in the bathroom. He told me to look into the mirror. “No look up near to the ceiling”. 

I had woken both Sn, and IB to do their wadu, and say their prayers. IB was standing near the door waiting for his turn, and now both wanted me to kill the insect Sn showed me. I brought a chair from the dinning area. Climbing onto it I caught the offending insect into a tissue, and after flunging it into the toilet bowl, I flushed him. The coast was now clear for them to use the bathroom.

Sn is the same child who could catch frogs, and lizards in bare hands, and now nearly grownup he won’t remove an insect. It’s astonishing how children change!

The Morning Prayer

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.
