  • To pray or not to pray

    youre about to pray your namaaz. You have to resort to praying in a quiet deseted large room. There are lots of furniture around you. You are just about to make your niyat.

    You hear a clear voice coming from behinf you. It says if you pray your namaaz i will kill you right here. Then you here a the sound of metal against metal as though a sword is being drawn from its holder.

    You are stunned for a good couple of seconds. Then you slowly turn around and there is no one there.

    Would you still turn back around and pray?
    Salaams, I understand this is a religious forum and as a result their may be some very religious folk or sensitive folk on here. As I result I need to ask that my comments/posts if found offensive in anyway then please dont read them otherwise take with a pinch of salt. I do not wish to get into a serious argument over religious issues which I believe are either black or white.

    Was this a dream you saw?
    Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

    - Rasulullah (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم)‎

      is this a hypothetical question or for real? :S

        How can it be for real when it is stated as a question?

        "youre about to pray your namaaz. You have to resort to praying in a quiet deseted large room. There are lots of furniture around you. You are just about to make your niyat."

        It is not a dream, as the prophet PBUH said never to relate a bad dream. A hypothetical question based on a slight exageration.

          Real incidents can be stated as a question, too.

          But, I would continue praying, unless I actually saw someone with certainty who's about to kill me.

            Let us not waste time on hypothetical, admittedly nonsensical scenarios and actually start praying and capitalising on our time.
            What can my enemies possibly do to me? My paradise is in my heart; wherever I go it goes with me, inseparable from me. For me, prison is a place of retreat; execution is my opportunity for martyrdom; and exile from my town is but a chance to travel - Ibn Taymiyyah

                you have not not understood the question she asked. She asked is this a hypothetical OR real incident.

                By real incident she meant like has it ACTAULLY HAPPENED in reality. I.e in the past in reality. But as it is a question, i.e.. "say you are JUST ABOUT TO"... then going by the tense and the form of statement it cant be based on a real incident.

                yes question can be stated on real incident in the past i.e "was bin laden really assasinated?" BUT the question is clearly asking about a past incident as in the word "WAS", which is a word used in general questions and is in past tense.

                Any lets not dwell on this, but answer the question

                You have to understand the question and what it implies. OK it is very rare that this will happen to you BUT something similar may happen for example, it is nammaz time your about to go, then your 'friend' says ,bro dont go to namaaz, we will lose out on this business deal for sure. Or you are going to go for namaz and your biwi, or fiance says dont go otherwise you dont respect my opinion and i will break up with you.. etc..... it is a deep question, if you take it at face value you may just laugh. Shaytaan comes in many forms.

                  Forget the business deal, I have to show my face to Allah
                  Nothing is more important than salah, not even your family. No excuse to miss it.

                      ok whatever, a pretty dumb hypothetical question. Who will admit their sins and say 'yeah id go for the business deal and miss salah' most people here will never miss salah for anything anyway, in sha Allah

                          I would pray. When you pray, pray as if someone has a gun pointed at you and will kill you once you are finished.

                          You will pray the best salaat in your life.
                          Dreams feel real while we're in them. It's only when we wake up do we realize something was actually strange.
