CHAPTER: 45: THE KNEELING DOWN
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

These are Allah’s verses that We recite to you rightly. Then, in which discourse, after Allah and His verses, will they believe? (6)
Allah is the One who has subjugated for you the sea, so that the ships may sail in it with His command, and so that you may seek His grace , and so that you offer gratitude. (12) He has subjugated for you whatever there is in the heavens and whatever there is in the earth, all on His own. Surely in this there are signs for a people who reflect. (13) Tell those who believe that they should forgive those who do not believe in Allah’s days, so that He may recompense a people for what they used to earn. (14) Whoever acts righteously, it is for his own benefit, and who does evil, it is against his own soul. Then towards your Lord, you will be returned. (15)

The wrongdoers are friends to one another, and Allah is the friend of the God-fearing. (19) These are insights for the people, and guidance and mercy for a people who believe. (20) Do those who have committed evils assume that We will make them like those who believe and do righteous deeds, so as their life and death becomes equal? Evil is what they judge. (21)

So, have you seen him who has taken his desires as his god, and Allah has let him go astray, despite having knowledge, and has sealed his ear and his heart, and put a cover on his eye? Now who will guide him after Allah? Still, do you not take lesson? (23) And they say, “There is no life but our worldly life. We die and live, and nothing destroys us except time.” They have no knowledge about that; they do nothing but make conjectures. (24)
it will be the day in which the adherents of falsehood shall lose, (27) And you will see every community kneeling down. Every community will be called to its book. Today you will be recompensed for what you used to do. (28) This is Our book that speaks against you with truth. We used to get recorded all that you used to do. (29) Then, as for those who believed and did righteous deeds, their Lord will admit them to His mercy. That is indeed the achievement, visible to all. (30) And as to those who disbelieved, “Had My verses not been recited to you? But you showed arrogance, and you were a guilty people; (31) And when it was said to you that Allah’s promise is true and there is no doubt in the Hour, you used to say, ‘We do not know what the Hour is. We do not think but as an assumption, and we are not sure.’” (32)

Today We will forget you, as you forgot facing this your day, (34)

Taught 1400 years ago.
Do we want to succeed in both the worlds; here and the hereafter? If yes, then we must pray the morning prayer in the Mosque like we do every Friday. Success will follow in all walks of life and we would become the lead hands. As quoted by a non-Muslim if the Muslims' attendance in the morning prayer becomes like Friday prayer, they would become the leaders.

We must remember that the key to freedom is never given away freely , it has to be searched for and worked for. In the prison of this world, we can acquired real freedom by praying the morning prayer in the Mosque which is the master key to the doors of freedom. The key is right there, readily available to us but we choose to keep ourselves imprisoned.

This Book has no doubt in it - a guidance for the God-fearing, (2:2)

God Bless us all
