Miftah-ul-Janna (Booklet for way to Paradise)

3– A dragon will fall

3– A dragon will fall upon him. The dragon’s name is Aqra. It will hold a whip in one hand. One stroke with the whip will send that person down to the depths of the earth. He will rise back, only to be whipped again. The whipping will continue until Doomsday. So that person will be tormented until Day of Rising. Its four harms at the place of Arasât are: 1– He will undergo a severe trial. 2– He will have incurred the Wrath of Allâhu ’adhîm-ush-shân. 3– He will enter Hell. 4– There will be three different written statements on his forehead: The first one will read: This person deserves Allah’s Wrath. The second statement will be: This person has wasted the right of Allâhu ta’âlâ. The third one will say: As you have wasted the right of Allâhu ’adhîm-ush-shân, you are far from the Compassion of Allâhu ta’âlâ. Namâz is the mainmast of Islam. If a person performs his (daily five prayers of) namâz, he will have erected the mainmast of his faith. Thereby he will have made a bower to shelter under. If a person omits a single namâz wittingly and does not make qadâ of it, (i.e. if he does not perform it later, either,) in all three Madhhabs a fatwâ will be given that he is to be killed. According to the Hanafî Madhhab, it will not be necessary to kill him. However, he will have committed one of the grave sins termed ‘akbar-i-kebâir’. It will be necessary (to imprison him and) to keep him in prison until he begins to perform (his daily prayers of) namâz. A person who neglects namâz because he does not attribute due importance to namâz and because he does not believe the fact that namâz is (a Believer’s) primary duty, will become an unbeliever. If a person omits any one (of the daily five prayers of) namâz wittingly and thereafter makes qadâ of it, (i.e. even if he pays his debt by performing it afterwards,) he shall be kept burning in Hell for a length of time called ‘huqba’, i.e. eighty years. To be absolved from that torment, he will have to make tawba and beg and supplicate for forgiveness. (One day in the Hereafter is equal to a thousand worldly years. Years in the Hereafter should be reckoned accordingly.) – 150 –

[Muhammad Amîn Ibni ’Âbidîn ‘rahmatullâhi ’alaih’ states in his book entitled Radd-ul-muhtâr: As has been stated (by Islamic savants), namâz has been a religious commandment in all heavenly religions. ’Âdam ‘’alaihis-salâm’ performed namâz (daily) at the time of late afternoon, Ya’qûb ‘’alaihis-salâm’ performed it (daily) in the (early) evening (after sunset), and Yûnus ‘’alaihis-salâm’ performed it (daily) at night. As it is one of the tenets of îmân to believe acts that are farz and those which are harâm, likewise it is a tenet of îmân to believe that it is a duty, a debt to perform (the daily five prayers of) namâz. However, it is not a tenet of îmân to perform (these prayers of) namâz. It is farz for every discreet and pubert Muslim, male and female alike, to perform namâz five times daily, unless they have an ’udhr, (i.e. something to absolve them from responsibility.) Daily five prayers of namâz became farz (an Islamic commandment) on the night of Mi’râj. Hadîth-i-sherîfs quoted in the books entitled Muqaddima-us-salât and Tafsîr-i-Mazharî and Halabiy-i-kebîr read as follows: “Jebrâîl ‘’alaihis-salâm’ (and I performed namâz together, and Jebrâîl ‘’alaihis-salâm) conducted the namâz as imâm for two of us, by the side of the door of Ka’ba, for two days running. We two performed the morning prayer as the fajr dawned; the early afternoon prayer as the Sun departed from meridian; the late afternoon prayer when the shadow of an object equalled its midday shadow increased by the length of the object; the evening prayer after sunset, [i.e. when its upper limb disappeared;] and the night prayer when the evening twilight darkened. The second day, we performed the morning prayer when the morning twilight matured; the early afternoon prayer when the shadow of an object increased again by the length of the object; the late afternoon prayer immediately thereafter; the evening prayer at the prescribed time of breaking fast; and the night prayer at the end of the first third of the night. Then he said: ‘O Muhammad, these are the times of (the daily five prayers of) namâz for you and the Prophets before you. Let your Ummat perform each of these five prayers between the two times at which we have performed each.’ ” We are commanded to perform namâz five times daily. It is incumbent upon parents to command their seven year-old child to perform namâz, and to make it perform namâz by beating it with hand if it still does not perform when it is ten years old. It is not permissible to beat one’s disciple with more than three strokes or to beat him with a stick. The same beating is applied to a child to make it fast (in the blessed month of – 151 –
