For those who wish to turn their lives around, it begins by focusing on and perfecting the salah. Once you put salah back as the priority—before school, work, fun, socializing, shopping, TV, ball games—only then can you turn your life around.
The irony of this truth is that many people are deceived into thinking that they need to first turn their life around, before they can start praying. This thinking is a dangerous trick of shaytan, who knows that it is salah itself which will provide the fuel and guidance necessary to turn our life around. It is like a driver whose car is on empty, but insists on finishing the journey before filling up on gas. That person won’t be going anywhere. And in the same way, such people end up in the same place for years: not praying, and not changing their lives.
Shaytan challenged them, and won.
In so doing, we have allowed him to steal from us what is priceless. See, our homes and our cars are so precious to us that we would never think to leave them unprotected. So we pay hundreds of dollars on security systems to keep them safe. And yet our hearts are left unprotected, to be stolen by the worst of thieves—a thief who has vowed God Himself to be our relentless enemy till the end of time. A thief who is not simply stealing some carved metal with a Mercedes symbol on it.
A thief who is stealing our eternal soul and everlasting ticket to Paradise.
