Husband: Have you prayed Asr?
Wife: I got back from work tired a bit so I took me a nap.
Husband: Ok… Go pray Asr and Maghrib before its time for Isha.
The next day… the husband leaves town on a business trip… But a few hours after his flight was scheduled to arrive he didn’t call or even text her like he usually does to let her know that he had arrived safely..!!
The wife calls to check up on her husband but he doesn’t pick up.. She calls again; the phone rings but no reply what so ever.
She was starting to get worried after many attempts of calling her beloved husband and no reply at all… She thinks to herself something must have went wrong he never does that. He always calls as soon as he lands.
A few hours pass by… and suddenly the phone rings and its the husband. Wife all worried says: have you arrived safely??
Husband: Yes, Alhamdulillah.
Husband: About 4 hours ago.
Wife in an angered tone: 4 hours ago? And you don’t call?
Husband: I was tired so decided to take a nap.
Wife: A few minutes wouldn’t have hurt you if you were to call me and let me know you’v arrived… Plus haven’t you heard the phone ringing over and over again as I was calling you..??
Husband: Yes, I heard it..
Wife: And you don’t pick up..?? What are my calls not important enough for you..??
Husband: You’re calls are important to me, but yesterday you didn’t seem to mind not answering the calls of Athan.. Allah’s call…
Wife with watery eyes and after a short silence says: Yes, you have a point.. I’m sorry..
Husband: Why are you apologizing to me? You should seek Allah’s forgiveness and don’t repeat the same mistake twice. All what I want out of this world is that Allah unites us both in a palace in Jannah where in it we can start our eternal life together. Ever since that day the wife never delayed any of her prayers.
“The one who truly loves you is the one who pushes you forward on your path to Allah and gets in your way and stops you from going backwards in life.” ❤
