Prayer is Light

Shaykh Salih al-Ja’fari (may Allah be pleased with him and please him) said:

In the courtyard of the generous we have come to rest, and in their courtyard their generosity overflows onto us.

Old female peasants have a saying:

“He who is in the vicinity of the blessed will be blessed, and his lights will overflow onto him; and he who is in the vicinity of the damned will be damned, and will be burned by his fire.”

So how could you stand before Allah (most high) every day, five times, without one of His attributes overflowing onto you, when He is the source of all generosity?

Shaykh Salih al-Ja’fari (may Allah be pleased with him and please him) also said:

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, “Prayer is light.”  (Sahih Muslim)
