Whoever does not acknowledge/believe in the Quran will be humiliated in this world and the Hereafter. Allah says namaz saves you from shamelessness and bad deeds. The point to ponder is why doesn’t namaz save us from lies, fraud and corruption?

Listen to this: Hazrat Umar is in the mosque and is leading the believers. A young girl is also saying her namaz behind him. She has travelled two KM to the mosque to stand behind him for the Friday prayer. She has her small brother with her. But when a young boy saw the girl his sexual desire was aroused. The boy said to her: fulfil my desire, but the girl put her own condition before him. Normally women love gold more than they love their husbands but this girl was different. She said pray behind Hazrat Umar for eight days and after that come to me and tell me your desire.

Listen to this: Hazrat Umar is on the rostrum of namaz and he is someone who speaks the language of Allah and the Quran too speaks his language. The boy said namaz behind him for a week and on the eighth day he is found praying to Allah: O Allah I am a sinner please forgive me! The youth is still crying during the Friday namaz when the girl too reaches the mosque and tells her brother to go and locate the boy. Her brother found the boy in a corner of the mosque crying. He did not listen to the voice of the girl’s brother but went on crying. The brother asked: My sister wants to know what is your desire of her? On this the boy grew angry and said go away my desire is now for Allah.

When the heart is with Allah then there is no attraction in worldly things. Once Hazrat Saad was saying his namaz when a snake fell on the chest of his infant son. He thought if the snake stays there he will kill my son but Allah looked after his favoured ones. Allah’s bounty increased and He protected the infant. When the Prophet PBUH heard this he told Saad that when you say your namaz the mercy of Allah is at its highest point. Had you gone on all night Allah would have looked after your son and the snake would have actually stood guard on him.

In our case, o People, if a fly sits on our face our namaz is ruined! Allah says: say the kind of namaz that is without shamelessness and evil. Had our women been pious they have inculcated namaz in their children.
