Praise be to Allaah.
What is required
is to regularly offer the prayers at the proper times, in obedience to the
command of Allah (interpretation of the meaning):
(five obligatory) AsSalawat (the prayers) especially the middle Salat (i.e.
the best prayer Asr). And stand before Allah with obedience (and do not
speak to others during the Salat (prayers)).”
prayer is enjoined on the believers at fixed hours”
and so as to avoid
being included in the words of Allah (interpretation of the meaning):
has succeeded them a posterity who have given up As-Salat (the prayers)
(i.e. made their Salat (prayers) to be lost, either by not offering them or
by not offering them perfectly or by not offering them in their proper fixed
times, etc.) and have followed lusts. So they will be thrown in Hell”
Ibn Mas‘ood (may
Allah be pleased with him) said concerning al-ghayy (translated above as
“Hell”): It is a valley in Hell, very deep and with a foul taste.
And Allah says
(interpretation of the meaning):
“So woe unto
those performers of Salat (prayers) (hypocrites),
Who delay their
Salat (prayer) from their stated fixed times,”
So try hard to
wake up for the prayer; it will not matter if your sleep is interrupted,
because you will get used to that in the future. We do not know why you are
asking about putting Maghrib and ‘Isha’ together, because we cannot imagine
that you spend the whole day until ‘Isha’ asleep. Can you spend your life
only between work and sleep? What about paying attention to the rights of
your family and brothers, and doing acts of worship to Allah such as going
to the mosque, reading Qur’aan, seeking knowledge and so on?
We ask Allah to
help you and give you strength.
And Allah knows best.
