Why Go To The Masjid

When the world knocks you down, and if you’re spiritually alive, you’re going to love this! If you’re spiritually dead, you won’t want to read it. If you’re spiritually curious, there is still hope!

A Muslim who regularly goes to the masjid wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to the masjid every Friday. ‘I’ve gone for 30 years now,’ he wrote, ‘and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can’t remember a single one of them. So, I think I’m wasting my time and the Imams are wasting theirs by giving sermons as well.’

This started a real controversy in the ‘Letters to the Editor’ column, much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher: ‘I’ve been married for 37 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this… They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to masjid for spiritual nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!’

When you are DOWN to nothing…Allah is UP to something! Faith sees the invisible, believes in the Incredible and receives the impossible! Thank Allah for our physical AND our spiritual nourishment!
