......

Could it be that the old parents really forgot to offer salah while engrossed in conversations?


lol, nah brother.  They didn't forget.  When we returned to the living room, my husband told them that we've finished our salah and they could now go to offer it for time was running out.  They said 'yes,'  then went to bring some snacks from the kitchen .... and then resumed chatting.   Like I said, they are very simple and spiritual at heart, very conscious of Allah.   But they are very timid before their children in the midst of all this loneliness in the west.  Knowing their children's mentality, they didn't want the son and his daughter to watch them offer salah.  They were afraid that the son might think the parents aren't his type and might not show up for a visit for another 6 months or longer.  Some buggers have such attitude issues.

Indeed a very woeful situation indeed.  Shocking adult children.

Poor old parents  Sad    It can feel hell on earth to be stuck in such a predicament.  The arrogant children will have to bear the responsibility in the Hereafter.

.....  There are some quite the opposite where parents, afraid to lose the love of their misguided children - who have assimilated thoroughly into secularism - give up their guidance and thrust themselves into secular ideas to please their children.   Strange as it may sound, it's happening in many Muslim families  .. or should I say so-called Muslim families.  I think Sister Heba had also mentioned this point some time earlier.



Yeah sis  Sad   unfortunately that is rampant.  We know several Muslim families where lonely and elderly parents living in the west would go to any lengths to oblige their secular minded and largely culture-assimilated adult children.   Once my husband and I visited an elderly couple (my husband's parents' friends).   We were chatting and then it was Maghrib time.  All of us already had our wudu, so we began getting ready to offer our Maghrib salah.  Just at that moment there was a knock at the door.  The mom answered the door and their middle aged son came to visit them with his teenage daughter (neither of them could care being a Muslim nor could they care about intruding in the lives of those who did care).   The poor old parents looked confused and a bit hesitant.  They told my husband and me to go ahead and offer our salah, taking us into a spare room, adding that they would offer their Maghrib as soon as we finished.  We finished and joined them in the living room.  But the elderly couple never offered their Maghrib prayer and continued chatting with the son and granddaughter.  I felt very sorry for the couple.  They are good folks and at heart they do love Allah.  But their children and their families are arrogant and opinionated.   Apparently the old couple didn't want to take any risks of an attitudinal judgement or backlash from their adult children.    Really regrettable, ha?  I mean, it's the children's state of mind that's lamentable  Sad   and also annoying   Angry

That's a very young boy with a very, very illuminated mind.   Praise be to The Almighty!!    Wow!   I pray and hope his parents are able to learn from him and never be dismissive of the guidance given to him by Allah Almighty. 

This is one fortunate family.  There are some quite the opposite where parents, afraid to lose the love of their misguided children - who have assimilated thoroughly into secularism - give up their guidance and thrust themselves into secular ideas to please their children.   Strange as it may sound, it's happening in many Muslim families  .. or should I say so-called Muslim families.  I think Sister Heba had also mentioned this point some time earlier.

SubhanAllah very heartening bit to learn.   His parents must be very proud of him .. but not too proud of themselves  Grin   

 Grin Cheesy Grin   you're right.   



That's called the Guidance of Allah.  HE grants it to whoever is trying hard to acquire it.  Age, university diplomas, race, color, language, social/official status have nothing to do with the real Education that enables humans to acquire genuine humanity.    

Undoubtedly YES!   Alhumdulilah.

 .. So actually, earthly life was meant to be a punishment for Prophet Adam and his wife for their disobedience to The Almighty.  .....
 

Exactly brother.   Just imagine, something that Allah Almighty granted to Adam and his wife that demoted their status for their disobedience, and therefore being given duniya in exchange for Jannah (what a difference!), and it's duniya which the largest horde of earthly dwellers at present times are raving after.  That's how much lack of iman can mislead the human mind.

You expression "earthly life punishment for Prophet Adam and his wife" reminds me of a 13-year-old boy at our community center.  This little guy seems to be really working hard for the betterment of his soul from a very young age.  Mash'Allah.  He appears quite a bit ahead of his parents who may sometimes eat non-Halal chicken from KFC or a non-Halal big Mac from MacDonalds.  Whenever that happens, they say their young son only eats french fries and salad, he won't eat any meat product if it's not Halal no matter how hungry he may be.   Last Ramadan during a lecture session at our neighborhood community center attached to our masjid, this young boy spoke the same, telling his mom, "umi, we love duniya, and it was given by Allah as a place of toil to Adam and his spouse in lieu of the bliss they formerly enjoyed in Jannah."   Many grown up folks turned around looking at him in surprise cause he seemed to carry far more wisdom than them at one-third their age, or less  Cheesy

  .....   But I recite it as a dua everyday.

Yes Sister Ruhi, I too recite it as a du'a just about every day.  This Verse holds truth for every minute of our lives. 



So very correct dear sisters.
