    Posted: 17 February 2008 at 3:54am
A man woke up early in order to  do  his morning  fajar  prayer in the mosque.   He got dressed, set on his way to the  mosque. 

On his way to the mosque, the man fell and his clothes got dirty. He got up, brushed himself off, and headed home.  

At home, he changed his clothes, and was, again, on his way to the mosque. On his way to the mosque, 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 and was on his way to the mosque. On his way to the mosque , 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 mosque, so I brought a lamp so I can light your way. The first man thanked him profusely and the two were on their way to the mosque.   

Once at the mosque, the first man asked the man with the lamp to come in and pray 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 Shaytan'.  

The man was shocked at this reply. Shaytan went on to explain, 'I saw you on your way to the  mosque  and it was I who made you fall. When you went home, cleaned yourself and went back on your way to the mosque , Allah forgave all of your sins. I made you fall a second time, and even  that did not encourage you to stay home, but rather, you went back on your way to the mosque. Because of that,  Allah  forgave all the sins of the people of your household. I was afraid if I made you fall one more time, then Allah will forgive the sins of the people of your village, so I made sure that you reached the mosque safely. '  

So do not let Shaytan benefit from his actions. Do not put off the good you intended to do as you never know how much reward you might receive from the hardships you encounter while trying to achieve that good. For your righteousness can save your family and nation at large. Do this and see the victory of the lord.

JazakAllah brother for sharing such good thought which was a reminder. I knew this kind of story, but the man was n't to his way to mosque but does n't wake up for the salah of fajr for two consecutive days and regrets a lot. Third day, he finds a man waking him up during the adha'an. On enquiring he says that he is satan. Since Allah swt, liked your act of repenting and rewarded you and loves you dearly than before, so i woke you up.

Anyways, i doubt the authenticity of such stories. Though they do teach us some moral, but again --khair.

As Salamu Alaikum

Masha Allah a good moral story although there are various versions of it.

Jazakallahu Khairan for sharing
