Do you ever pray?

Who do you pray to? Why? Is it by instinct? Have you ever said ” My god!”? Do you look up when you pray? Do you kneel down?

You never pray? Nobody answers your prayer? You do not need prayer in this modern age? …?

 

17:11″ The human being often prays for something that may harm him, thinking that he is praying for something good.”

( Did the prophets used to pray? For example Zachariah –  Father of John the Baptist-? Who did he pray to?)

 

19:32 He called his Lord, a secret call.”

 

19:4″ He said” My Lord, the bones have turned brittle in my body and my hair is aflame with grey. As I implore you, my Lord, I never despair.” “

 

19:58″ These are some of the prophets (and believers) Whom GOD blessed. They were chosen from the descendants of Adam and the descendants of Noah, and the descendants of Abraham, Israel and from among those whom We guided and selected. When the revelations of the Most Gracious ( Your Lord and mine) were recited to them, they fell prostrate, weeping.” ( and praying!)

 

19:59″ After them, came generations who lost the prayers ( to the ONE GOD ONLY!) and pursued their desires. ( and lusts, some are praying to their idols, some are preoccupied with this life, most have forgotten GOD!) They will suffer the consequences.”

 

22:11″ Among the people, there is the one who worships ( and prays to ) GOD conditionally. If things go his way, he is content. But ,if some adversity befalls him, he makes an about face. Thus he loses both this life and the hereafter. Such is the real loss.” ( You have to stay loyal to GOD? Even if  your prayer is not answered? Or have you prayed to someone else? idols?)

 

22:12″ He idolizes beside GOD, what possesses no power to harm him or benefit him; Such is the real straying.”

 

22:13″ He idolizes what is more apt to harm him than benefit him. What a miserable lord! ( and idol!) What a miserable companion!”

 

22:15″ If anyone thinks that GOD cannot support him in this life and in the hereafter, let him turn completely to ( his creator in ) heaven, ( submit and stay loyal to GOD ) and sever his dependence on anyone else. ( and pray to GOD ALONE!) HE will then see that this plan eliminates anything that bothers him.”

 

22:54″ Those who are blessed with knowledge ( Follow the word of GOD) will recognise the truth from your Lord, then believe in it, and their hearts readily accept it. Most assuredly, GOD guides the believers in the right path.” ( GOD ALONE, for prayer and everything. No idols!)

 

22:55″ As for those who disbelieve, they will continue to harbour doubts, until the hour comes to them, or until the retribution of an awesome day comes to them.”

 

22:67″ For each congregation, We have decreed a set of rites that they must uphold. ( to test their loyalty to GOD ALONE!) Therefore, they should not dispute with you. You shall continue to invite everyone to your Lord ( GOD ALONE!) Most assuredly , you are on the right path.”

 

22:68″ If they argue with you , then say:” GOD is fully aware of everything you do.” “

 

22:69″ God will judge among you on the day of Resurrection regarding all your disputes.”

( If you want to pray to anyone else,- idols…, it is your choice? But reflect on this next verse!)

 

22:73″ O people, here is a parable you must ponder carefully. The idols you set up beside GOD can never create a fly ( or a smaller insect) even if they banded together to do so; Further more, if the fly steals anything from them, they cannot recover it; ( new scientific fact – a fly digests its food before it sucks it!)  Weak is the pursuer (idolizer) and the pursued.” ( idol)

 

22:74″ They do not value GOD as HE should be valued! GOD is the Most Powerful, the ALMIGHTY.”

 

Good luck with all your prayers.
