In the year of sorrow, the year which our beloved Prophet ﷺ lost his uncle and wife within 3 days of each other, and was humiliated and stoned out of the city of Ta’if, Allah ordained the 5 daily prayers. Coincidence?
Here we learn a number of lessons:
- Prayer is the means to help lift us through our sorrows
- Being sad does not mean a lack of faith
- Being tested does not equate to being punished
More to come on this insha’allah!
