I havent written in while and I found this piece in arabic and thought I would translate it for other people’s benefit insha Allah.
It is bad manners when:
1- You go to the Masjid in your PJs..
Yet you wear your best clothes and perfume when out with friends!
2- You call and chat with your friends everyday..
Yet your family only hears from you every few months..
or even years!
3- You have plenty of time to go out with friends..
Yet when your parents need you for something..
You’re always busy!
4- You are more than happy to spend your money on the latest Album..
Yet a few dollars are too much for a beneficial Islamic Cd!
5- You spend hours with your friends online..
Yet you only a few minutes in Prayer!
6- You leave the house all dolled up..
Yet wonder why men are looking at you!
7- You know its time for prayer.. and you do not move
As if your glued down to your chair!
8- Your brothers and sisters are in need..
Yet you do not help them!
9- You are offered an islamic book or Cd and you reject it..
Yet when a person gives you a music album..
You dont know how to thank them!
10- You stay up the night online..
Yet not offer a single raka’ah in prayer!
11- You only open the Quran once a week to read surat Al-Kahf..
That’s if it is once a week!
11- You have so many university degrees..
Yet dont know the basics about your religion!
