“Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity.” – Al-Tirmidhi
Make your homes a qiblah and establish the prayer*
وَاجْعَلُوا بُيُوتَكُمْ قِبْلَةً وَأَقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ
In light of the recent Mosque closures, we should all reflect on this verse.
Allah سبحانه و تعالى says: “And We inspired Moosa and his brother (saying): ‘Take dwellings for your people in Egypt, and make your homes as places for your worship, and perform the salah, and give glad tidings to the believers.’” [10:87].
*What is meant by ‘taking the home as a place of worship’?*
Ibn ‘Abbaas said: “They were commanded to take their dwellings as places of prayer. [lit. mosques].”
Ibn Katheer said: “This was because of the intensity of the tribulation that they were facing from Pharaoh and his people. They were commanded to pray much, as Allah says: ‘O you who believe! Seek help with patience and prayer…’ [2:153], and as it was reported in the hadeeth that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ when he was distressed by something, would pray.
