Pray before you are prayed upon


“I want to pray.”

[This is] the wish of one of the elderly, [currently] in intensive care.

[As per the old adage] “as you were raised, you shall grow old.”


Shaykh Dr. ‘Aasim al-Qaryooti said:

O Allaah, bless us with a good end.

And in the hadeeth, the Prophet ﷺ said:

«If a person falls sick or travels, the reward for what he used to do when he was healthy and not travelling will be recorded for him.»

Don’t be fooled into thinking that you will begin praying when you become old; pray before you are prayed upon!

He is a graduate of the Islaamic University of Madeenah, having graduated from the Institute of Arabic Language, and later the Faculty of Sharee'ah in 2004. He currently resides in Birmingham, UK.
