Among the marvels of modern technology is also the ability to track the missed
calls which were made by our friends and foes and the likes. We do not get a
good night’s sleep, unless we have returned the calls of those who matter. We
don't let any call go unanswered as long as we know that it matters. Don't we?
But how about the calls of "hay-yaa al-as-salaah and hay-yaa al-al falah" made
from the neighborhood house of our master, the Almighty Allah.? Those calls are
made five times a day and many a times they all go unanswered.
We do not either respond!!! Nor do we respect these missed calls. Do they
Everybody can tell, if these really matter. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but
surely in the hereafter. Let us look at ourselves. Can we afford to let these
calls of the muezzin be missed, day after day, after day.
The call from our cherisher, sustainer and the ultimate master. Just think about
it. Next time one hears this call, just ask yourself how good a night’s sleep
can I have by missing those calls from the house of Allah.
Think about it....the answer may come from the inner heart.
