Subhan Allah, Allah [SWT] had to paralyze this brother (may Allah grant him AlFirdaous, ameen) before he could realize the true value of 1 sadjah, reading Quran and being compassionate towards parents.
Here’s a question: is it necessary for Allah [SWT] to paralyze us before we realize the true worth of the 3 afore-mentioned acts?
Why is it that people need intense pain – pain such as being paralyzed, or a heart-attack, or loss of a family member, or a painful divorce – to remind them of Allah [SWT]?
Why can’t we remember Allah [SWT] when we are not in pain? Is it necessary for Allah [SWT] to put us through intense pain just to make us act as good Muslims?
