Salam Alaikoam

Maybe you think we should have no jobs and stay home all the time, then where would the world be.

Most families set aside time for their children and most people set aside time for prayer.

Though it is nice to go to Mosque and church or where ever you go for spiritual food it is not essential but it is nice if you can do it.

There are many people who cannot attend Mosque due to illness and it is no shame for them also if they pray less than five times a day due to their ailment.

In fact though it is prescribed to pray five times a day we can pray many times during the day even without going through the motions as we can say prayers in our hearts and some say these are best.

The real problem is not Shatan but busy lives and communications problems.

Many people fall through the cracks becuase they are experiencing emotional problems ythat the Imam is not trained to deal with and in some cases he/she refuses to direct them to the right proffessional help.

There is hope in Islam but Islam is not in a box, it is evolving even as we speak.

Life is Islam and Islam is Life.

Salam

Judgement day passes in the moment we decide something needs attention & we take positive action. Then there will be a great sorting out of people into groups, Inspired by Surah 99 Ayat 1-8

There is no need to add innovations to Islam, no one is stopping you to create your own religion, but don't add innovations to Islam & call is the "evolving Islam".

That's not what the article meant. We have to work to earn a living. But work is taking up so much time these days, that fathers (and mothers... at times) hardly have any " quality"time for their families.

Life is not easy for many people. Ofcourse everyone wants to spend time with their familes, but it is difficult for most people. The work culture today is different from what is was before.

Prayer is a command from Allah, five times,(obligatory). You may do what you like sis, but please do not mislead people.

 Verily, he is to you an open enemy. (  سورة البقرة  , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #168)

Surely, shaitan (Satan) is an enemy to you, so take (treat) him as an enemy. He only invites his Hizb (followers) that they may become the dwellers of the blazing Fire.  
(  سورة فاطر  , Fatir, Chapter #35, Verse #6)

Allah has warned us against shaitan many times in the quran, those who wish to ignore it...fine...but truth doesn't change.

For the nth time , Islam is NOT evolving! Bro ak mentioned the verse which many of us have told you before. I know you will ignore all of this but...May Allah guide us all.....

wassalaam

 

Allah is Sufficient as a Walee (Protector) and Allah is Sufficient as a Naseer (Helper).
(Surah An-Nisa, Chapter #4, Verse #45)
