The beauty of prayer in Islam Updated 23 September Jinan Bastaki September 23, GOING deeper into our spiritual state during prayers salah requires that we have a presence of heart and are mindful of the words being said during the prayers. A person who began applying this said he wished the prayer would never end. Of course, we must follow orders and leave prohibitions, but it needs to be done out of more than fear and hope; it should also be done out of love for Allah. Yet when we meet Allah, there is not even an ounce of this same feeling. They love them as they should love Allah. But those who believe are stronger in love for Allah.

Edit An illustration of Tariq ibn Ziyad. These are that: He was a Persian from Hamadan. Even here there are several different versions, and modern workers who accept a Berber origin tend to settle on one version or another without giving any reason for so doing.

The earliest reference to him seems to be in the Mozarab Chronicle , written in Latin in , which although written within living memory of the conquest of Spain, refers to him erroneously as Taric Abuzara.

Musa bin Nusayr appointed Tariq governor of Tangiers after its conquest in , [13] but an unconquered Visigothic outpost remained nearby at Ceuta, a stronghold commanded by a nobleman named Julian.

After Roderic came to power in Spain, Julian had, as was the custom, sent his daughter to the court of the Visigothic king to receive an education. It is said that Roderic raped her, and that Julian was so incensed he resolved to have the Arabs bring down the Visigothic kingdom. Accordingly he entered into a treaty with Tariq Musa having returned to Qayrawan to secretly convey the Muslim army across the Straits of Gibraltar, as he owned a number of merchant ships and had his own forts on the Spanish mainland.

About April 29 , the army of Tariq, composed of recent converts to Islam, was landed at Gibraltar by Julian. On the advice of Julian, Tariq split his army into various divisions which went on to capture Cordoba, Granada and other places, while he remained at the head of the division which captured Toledo and Guadalajara. Tariq was de facto governor of Hispania until the arrival of Musa a year later. Musa Edit In the many Arabic histories written about the conquest of Spain, there is a definite division of opinion regarding the relationship between Tariq and Musa bin Nusayr.

Some relate episodes of anger and envy on the part of Musa, that his freedman had conquered an entire country. Others do not mention, or play down, any such bad blood. The most extreme episode is in the earliest Arabic history, that of Ibn Abd al-Hakam 9th century. He stated that Musa was so angry with Tariq that he imprisoned him, and was going to execute him, were it not for the intervention of Mugith ar-Rumi, a freedman of the caliph Al-Walid I.

It was for this reason that the caliph recalled Tariq and Musa. Said to have been made of gold, and encrusted with precious gems, this important relic was noted even in pre-Islamic times to be in the possession of the Spanish Visigoths.

Most stories say that, fearing duplicity on the part of Musa, he removed one leg of the table and in most accounts replaced it with an obviously inferior one. When both men appeared before the caliph, Musa gave out that he was the one who had obtained the table.
