    Going Up the Stairs!

    Going Up the Stairs


    In our area, we rented a room on the 12th floor of an apartment building for performing salah with jamath. This particular building was chosen because 100s of Muslim families live here and there was no Masjid in the walking distance. One day as we came to pray salah, we discovered that all the elevators were occupied or out of service. So, me and another brother decided to take the stairs. After reaching the 8th floor, we were exhausted and could barely keep on climbing. Then, suddenly something came to the mind of the brother who was climbing with me. He said, "Going up the stairs is very difficult, but going down is very easy.

    Similar is our iman, losing it is very easy but gaining it is very difficult."

              according to hadith, every step a man takes towards the mosque (for a fardh prayer), he gets one 'hasana', and he loses one 'bad deed' and he is raised up one rank....

              think of all the steps u take when u use the stairs, and perhaps the motivation will keep u going next time u have to use the stairs....
              Both Halal & Haram r evident but between them r doubtful things, most ppl have no knowledge about them. So whoever saves himself from suspicious things saves his religion & honor, & whoever indulges in suspicious things indulges in Haram.
