He remembered his grandmother's warning
about praying on time:".My son, you shouldn't
leave prayer to this late time
grandmother's age was 70 but whenever she
heard the Adhan, she got up like an arrow and
performed Salah/Namaz/prayer. He, however
could never win over his ego to get up and
pray. Whatever he did, his Salah was always
the last to be offered and he prayed it quickly
to get it in on time. Thinking of this, he got up
and realized that there were only 15 minutes
left before Salat-ul Isha. He quickly made
Wudhu and performed Salat-ul Maghrib. While
making Tasbih, he again remembered his
grandmother and was embarrassed by how he
had prayed. His grandmother prayed with such
tranquility and peace. He began making Dua
and went down to make Sajdah and stayed like
that for a while.

He had been at school all day and was tired, so
tired. He awoke abruptly to the sound of noise
and shouting. He was sweating profusely. He
looked around. It was very crowded. Every
direction he looked in was filled with people.
Some stood frozen looking around, some were
running left and right and some were on their
knees with their heads in their hands just
waiting. Pure fear and apprehension filled him
as he realized where he was.

His heart was about to burst. It was the Day of
Judgment. When he was alive, he had heard
many things about the questioning on the Day
of Judgment, but that seemed so long ago.
Could this be something his mind made up?
No, the wait and the fear were so great that he
could not have imagined this. The interrogation
was still going on. He began moving frantically
from people to people to ask if his name had
been called. No one could answer him. All of a
sudden his name was called and the crowd
split into two and made a passageway for him.
Two people grabbed his arms and led him
forward. He walked with unknowing eyes
through the crowd. The angels brought him to
the center and left him there. His head was
bent down and his whole life was passing in
front of his eyes like a movie. He opened his
eyes but saw only another world. The people
were all helping others.

He saw his father running from one lecture to
the other, spending his wealth in the way of
Islam. His mother invited guests to their house
and one table was being set while the other
was being cleared. He pleaded his case; "I too
was always on this path. I helped others. I
spread the word of Allah. I performed my
Salah. I fasted in the month of Ramadan.
Whatever Allah ordered us to do, I did.
Whatever he ordered us not to do, I did not."
He began to cry and think about how much he
loved Allah. He knew that whatever he had
done in life would be less than what Allah
deserved and his only protector was Allah. He
was sweating like never before and was shaking
all over. His eyes were fixed on the scale,
waiting for the final decision. At last, the
decision was made. The two angels with sheets
of paper in their hands, turned to the crowd.
His legs felt like they were going to collapse.
He closed his eyes as they began to read the
names of those people who were to enter

His name was read first. He fell on his knees
and yelled that this couldn't be, "How could I
go to Jahannam? I served others all my life, I
spread the word of Allah to others." His eyes
had become blurry and he was shaking with
sweat. The two angels took him by the arms. As
his feet dragged, they went through the crowd
and advanced toward the blazing flames of
Jahannam. He was yelling and wondered if
there was any person who was going to help
him. He was yelling of all the good deeds he
had done, how he had helped his father, his
fasts, prayers, the Qur'an that he read, he was
asking if none of them would help him. The
Jahannam angels continued to drag him. They
had gotten closer to the Hellfire. He looked
back and these were his last pleas. Had not
Rasulullah [saw] said, "How clean would a
person be who bathes in a river five times a
day, so too does the Salah performed five
times cleanse someone of their sins?" He began
yelling, "My prayers? My prayers? My

The two angels did not stop, and they came to
the edge of the abyss of Jahannam. The flames
of the fire were burning his face. He looked
back one last time, but his eyes were dry of
hope and he had nothing left in him. One of
the angels pushed him in. He found himself in
the air and falling towards the flames. He had
just fallen five or six feet when a hand grabbed
him by the arm and pulled him back. He lifted
his head and saw an old man with a long white

He wiped some dust off himself and asked him,
"Who are you?" The old man replied, "I am
your prayers." "Why are you so late! I was
almost in the Fire! You rescued me at the last
minute before I fell in." The old man smiled
and shook his head. "You always performed me
at the last minute, and did you forget?" At that
instant, he blinked and lifted his head from
Sajdah. He was in a sweat. He listened to the
voices coming from outside. He heard the
adhan for Salat-ul Isha. He got up quickly and
went to perform Wudhu.
"Say Your Prayers Before Prayers For You Are
