Assalammualaikum everyone, I had my 6 year old niece coming to me and probing me questions that ALHAMDULILLAH i can answer her. Niece: Aunt Jenna y must we pray 5 times a day Me: Do u know what is the meaning of Islam and y Shalat/sholat is the pillar of ISLAM? Niece: Islam is our religion and uh i dont know. Me: Islam is the way u lead your life. Shalat/sholat is the pillar of ISLAM as I means Isyak, S means Subuh, L means Luhur/Zohor, A means Asar, M means Maghrib and thats y its call the pillar of ISLAM. Now, since u like computer so much and u always play them-we have been teached to give our eyes some rest as your eyes n body need it after an hour or so this can be answer to your question y we have to shalat/sholat. We sholat/shalat 5 times a day is because we give ourself a rest from the world and space for us to communicate with ALLAH to complain to HIM how our day is or any other factors u would like to tell ALLAH how u feel. By doing Shalat/sholat even thought for 5-10 mins, it makes your blood circulate better because its a form of exercise that moves all the joints. Niece: oh i got the point. then y must i fast? Me: What do u think of fasting? Niece: Fasting is when we don't eat, don't drink during the fasting time Me: Is that all? U see eating and drinking is a feeling Niece: Oh yah, not to forget that we have to surpressed all bad intentions and fight against nafsu which is the biggest war all humans have. Me: Fasting make us a better person in knowing the word Contented-look at those people at war where theres no food no drink or those poor countries who have nothing to survive on. And like what u say to summarise the meaning of Fasting is to fight against your own nafsu. And remember this, if ALLAH thinks that we humans can't do it, this wont be stated in the quran but because under one quote of Surah Al Baqarah: "Allah don't give a test to HIS servants beyond his capability, it gets every good that it earns; it gets every ill that it earns."-so this line is surely mean that we can pass HIS test. Niece: Aunty Jenna, i had a friend who her father is a Professor of Science. He asked me a question that y when muslims pray, they don't have a symbolic thing/statue infront of them. Me: OH my... what do u answer him? Niece: I answered him, "Since u r a professor of Science, u believe frequency is there but u can't see it, u feel wind but u can't see it, u can smell perfume but u don't see the molecules of it flying around, u can't see gravity but u believe its there. We don't need a symbol of something to belive ALLAH is there or to feel assured because HE is already there. I don't need assurance but i have already assured. Then the Professor ask me again,"Hey Kid, smart of u that u knock my sense to make me understand. Now tell me Y Allah has angels to be his assistant as HE don't need actually?" I answered him, " O professor, don't u see ALLAH don't need assistant for HE can do things HIMSELF HE IS AL MIGHTY. But hear me out of the logicness that im going to tell u-Where do u get your things from u being born till u are grown up now? The professor answered that his parents bought for him and he get it from the shops and explain the shops get from the supplier and supplier get from the manufacturer and etc. I answered, " The logicness to put in this question is that ALLAH is trying to tell us that everybody needs everybody so make peace with each other because u need one another. U see ALLAH don't need assistant but because HE wants to show us examples so we behave appropriately towards others." I really smiled through out the conversation because i was amazed with the answers my niece has given and in fact, i too learnt alot from her ALHAMDULILLAH as she can think smart not only in religion basis but the logic way too.
