Fajr in the Masjid



A man woke up early in order to pray the Fajr prayer in the masjid. He got dressed, made his wudhu and set off for the masjid. On his way, the man fell and his clothes got dirty. He got up, brushed himself off, and headed home. Once home, he changed his clothes, made his wudhu, and was, again, on his way to the masjid.

On his way to the masjid, he fell again and at the same spot! He, again, got up, brushed himself off and headed home. At home, he once again, changed his clothes, made his wudhu and was on his way to the masjid,

On his way to the masjid, he met a man holding a lamp. He asked the man of his identity and the man replied, "I .saw you fall twice on your way to the masjid, so I brought a lamp so I can light your way." The first man thanked him profusely and the two went together to the masjid.

Once at the masjid, the first man asked the man with the lamp to come in and pray Fajr with him. The second man refused. The first man asked him a couple more times and, again, the answer was the same. The first man asked him why he did not wish to come in and pray.

The man replied "I am Satan." The man was shocked at this reply. Satan went on to explain,  " I saw you on your way to the masjid and it was I who made you fall When you went home, cleaned yourself and came back on your way to the masjid, Allah (SWT) forgave all your sins. I made you fall a second time, and even that did not stop you, but rather, you came one more time to go to the masjid. Because of that, Allah (SWT) forgave all the sins of the people of your household, I was afraid if I made you fall one more time, then Allah (SWT) will forgive the sins of the people of your village, so I made sure that you reached the masjid safely."

So do not let Satan benefit from his actions.
