Would you like to own this mansion?
How about this one?
Or this one?
May be this one?
Yes you do.
Before you get too exited…
How long will it take for you to pay for these mansions? They cost well over millions of dollars each! Can you afford it? I guess not.
But there is a WAY.
Yes, you and I can also own luxurious mansions better than these. Here is the secret.
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:
وعن أم حبيبة بنت أبي سفيان، أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: “من صلى فى يوم وليلة ثنتي عشرة ركعةً، بُني له بيت في الجنة؛ أربعاً قبل الظهر، وركعتين بعدها، وركعتين بعد المغرب، وركعتين بعد العشاء، وركعتين قبل صلاة الفجر” رواه الترمذي، وقال: حسن صحيح،
Umm Habibah bint Abu Sufyan reports that the Messenger of Allah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) said: “Whoever prays twelve rak’at during the day and night will have a house built for him in paradise: four rak’at before zuhr and two after it, two rak’at after maghrib, two rak’at after ‘isha, and two rak’at before fajr.” (Tirmidhi, who graded it as Hasan sahih).
These are the twelve rakat of Sunnah Muakkadah prayers that are observed before/after the above mentioned Fardh prayers. Praying 12 rakat of salah will only take around 20-30 mintues. But in return, you will get a house in Paradise every single day! A house in paradise is much bigger and better than any of the above mansions. Let alone, it’s better than the whole world and everything in it.
Whereas owning a small house in this world will take years of efforts in paying off the mortgage, you can literally own palaces in Jannah with only 20 mintues of effort. What a great deal! Let us start owning our mansions in paradise from today.
