Offer Prayer till Death
Almighty Allah says on the Quran:
And He has made me blessed wherever I am and has enjoined upon me prayer and zakah as long as I remain alive. (Maryam 19:31)
This is a very powerful reminder about our approach to Salah, how we approach prayer, and how we perceive and think, and how we implement prayer in our lives. You see we supposed to pray… it’s saying as long as I am alive.
Now what is that exactly meant? It means no matter what comes up, Salah is something that will I hold on to till my last breath. I will concern myself with, till death. And the Prophet (peace be upon him) demonstrated this, he lived this. This isn’t just theory, this isn’t something just fancy to say, it’s not just a fancy slogan.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) lived it. You know, about a week before the passing of the Prophet (peace be upon him), he fell very ill. He became ill and the Prophet was incapable of standing up and even walking on his own, very soon after. So, the Prophet (peace be upon him), what he did? He would send for a couple of hid Companions to come to his home to get him, alright.
