A broad scaled prayer was made in Israel for the coming of Moschiah, that is the Mahdi (pbuh). That is really very good masha'Allah. Muslims in Palestine should also gather and pray saying "O Lord send Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) to us." Both in Israel and in Palestine people should pray to Allah saying "Lord, turn the whole region into a sea of peace."
Allah establishes a special connection with those who believe and do good and sincere deeds. He listens to their words and wishes, accepts their prayers. In the Qur'an, Allah says; "[He will] reward them for the best of what they did and give them more from His unbounded favor". For instance, if Allah gives them health, He then increases their health, if He gives them welfare, He increases their welfare, if He gives them properties, He increases that, if He gives them influence, He increases their influence, if He gives them power He increases their power.
We should support our Prime Minister both with our prayers and with our actions, we should strengthen his hand. This would be very effective against external powers as well. It would be very beneficial for them to know that the prime minister is not alone and that he has the support of 70 million faithful people behind him.
Praying is being in a constant connection with God. God approves prayers, God loves prayers. That is explicitly stated in the Qur'an. That is because it forges a connection with Him. Christians are very well aware of this secret and they enjoy the taste of it. So God accepts their prayers. That is a very crucial matter.
A person falls ill from his arm and he constantly goes to medicine. But why do you not also pray for it? Make your prayers, medicine is just a vehicle, what does it have to do with medicine? Know that God is the One Who created medicine, be aware that medicine is only used as a prayer and apart from that simply pray for the cure.
When one praises God, when one takes refuge in God, his mind would become sharper and clearer. Otherwise a person's brain will get numb and become abnormal. When one praises God, when one prays to God, the pressure in that person's mind will be relieved. Otherwise mind would shut down. Reason would be lost. One would become crazy.
It is crucially important for our brothers and sisters to pray during their house talks. A brother of ours stands and prays and others say "Amen" altogether. It is very important that they get together very day and read from our books or read verses from the Qur'an and tell each other facts leading to faith.
There is richness in discourses. Companions of our Prophet (saas) have reached maturity through the discourses of our Prophet (saas). Even if they participate the discourse of our Prophet (saas) only for ten minutes, they would attain maturity. Richness comes with discourse. And praying during discourses is one of the most beautiful blessings. Their hearts would be nurtured with that prayer.
Muslims should say; “Oh my Lord, give me an infinite love and an endless closeness.” There is no end to love. That is because this is a place of trial; it is a place of racing. God refers to those who are the foremost in the race. What does “being foremost in the race” mean? It means being foremost in piety, it means being resolute, it means striving in the path of God and attaining the love of God.
Praying without clinging on to necessary means would not be acceptable. If you are saying that you will perform your prayers, yet go and sit in a corner, even if you say “My Lord let me perform my prayers,” you would simply be sitting there doing nothing. You should do your actual praying by going and performing your prayers. The determination and the effort you make would be your actual praying.
Saying prayer is very important. What stops the feelings of anguish? Saying prayer does. A Muslim needs to say prayer. For instance, let us say that one is going to make a speech; a Muslim would say, “O My Lord, make me speak beautifully.” Let us say he will eat; “O My Lord, let me enjoy the flavor of this food and make them means for my health. Grant me the joy of being one of those who thanks God.”
A Muslim needs to give himself in to the prayers, he needs to focus on the prayer but prayers should not be tiresome. Look at the prayers in the Qur’an. The prayers of the Prophets are always short. “My Lord, increase me in knowledge” (Surat At-Taha;114) That is it. Short but frequent. “My Lord, Guide us on the Straight Path” “My Lord, keep me thankful for the blessing You bestowed on me, keep me acting rightly, pleasing You.”
May God give goodness to all of us, to all our people. May He give us peace, brotherhood, tranquility, ease, contentment and exhilaration. May God protect us from dissension, may God not set brothers against brothers. May our Lord settle the disputes among brothers and give Muslims the spirit of friendship, brotherhood and love. May God protect them from self-centeredness, arrogance, haughtiness and from greed for rank and position.
May God wrap us all around with radiance. May God make us radiant. May He give us guidance. May He open our minds. May God protect us from the evils of satan. May God protect us from wickedness. May God grant the feeling of safety to our hearts. May God make us wealthy. May He make us strong. May God make Islam prevail. May God show us the Mahdi. May He make Mahdi (pbuh) appear. May God make us students of the Mahdi (pbuh) and Jesus Messiah (pbuh).
How does one pray when he is harmed somehow? Perfectly. How is one's connection with God? Perfect. How is his respect? Perfect. But he has been harmed with troubles; he is not motivated without those troubles. Why are you waiting for those troubles to hit you? One should constantly be in the state he is when troubles hit him.
Let us reinforce our love and unity, we will soon see the result of it. God is watching us right now and hears all that we are talking about. He brought us together right now. God is the One Who ensures our trust, love and respect for one another. All power is with God. We pray and ask for the world to be good and beautiful and it will, insha'Allah, be like that.
The greatest mistake is when a person gets sick, he takes some medicine and thinks, "I can get over this disease with this medicine." In fact one should honestly say, "Oh Lord, make this medicine instrumental in my healing." Or one gets injured, something happens and he puts on an antibiotic saying, "Alright, this will do it." But that is not how it should be, you should say, "My Lord, make this instrumental". Otherwise you would be idolizing that medicine. God is the One Who creates that medicine, Who gives that medicine that power to heal. God is the One Who shows that image inside your brain.
One takes pleasure in pleading with God; one feels happy to do so. Loving the Almighty is a great pleasure for a helpless being such as man; God says, "I hear your pleading when you pray and I respond to your pleadings." What a pleasing, what a soothing feeling this is for such a helpless being. And God surely responds to every prayer.
We need to attach importance to praying to God; prayers should be sincere. Not in the form of customary Arabic prayers: They memorize these prayers, yet do not know the meaning of what they are saying or their hodjas recite the prayer and everyone says "amen" yet no one understands what is said. That is not acceptable, everyone should pray sincerely as they feel inside.
The universe is full of miracles. The believers should pray to God to be able to keep all these miracles in their mind. They should pray to be able to feel the excitement and amazement of how magnificent these miracles are. And they should ask from God the capacity to offer the appreciation they feel in the face of such knowledge to God.
People are virtually adrift in a sea of habituation. They should pray to God to be able to shed themselves of it. They should say, "O Lord, render my mind clear enough so that I can appreciate Your miracles. My mind does not let me feel the way I should feel in the face of such miracles." To use a metaphorical example, there is writing but people cannot read it. The believers should say, "May I attain my foresight so that I can feel the excitement of such miracle. O Lord, may I be able to appreciate You appropriately."
God would not be pleased if you forget that He creates all things. God gives pain and He grants recovery; this should not be forgotten. One should not detach his connection with God for reasons such as tiredness or even at moment of death. We should remember God ceaselessly. When we feel that we are falling into idolatry, we should supplicate to God and take refuge in Him. Our detachment from God would not be pleasing to God. God grants us all the blessings. We will show our love for God by remembering Him all the time. God wants persistent remembrance of Him. Just as one is not pleased when a loved one leaves, God is not pleased with our distancing from Him.
Understanding and being amazed with the artistry of God in a way that it will easily remain in one’s memory is very important. We need to pray God for that power of being amazed. For instance, the hormone system by itself is a wonder. Bones, muscle, organs, everything understands what the hormones want and do exactly as it is. Moreover, all the organs recognize the adrenalin hormone and carry out the command of the adrenalin perfectly without any delay, drift or being at a loss.
God tells us in 75th verse of Surat an-Nisa that Muslims should pray to God to send them a savior: “What reason could you have for not fighting in the Way of Allah – for those men, women and children who are oppressed and say, ‘Our Lord, take us out of this city whose inhabitants are wrongdoers! Give us a protector from You! Give us a helper from You!’?
