Ego kalian mengeluh jika kalian menarik napas dalam salat, ego kalian datang dan berkata, “Untuk apa bersusah payah?  Tidak usah salat.”  Banyak orang tidak salat.  Jika kalian bertanya pada mereka, “Apakah kalian percaya dengan Api Neraka?”  Mereka menjawab, “Tidak, di mana itu?”  Setan datang dan bermain-main dengan kita.  Segera setelah kita bertakbir mengucapkan, “Allahu Akbar (takbir di dalam salat), semua jenis gosip dan pikiran buruk masuk ke dalam pikiran kalian.

Dapatkah kalian menghentikannya?  Tidak, jadi Allah menguji kita dan jika kalian melihat hal ini, jika kalian ingin tahu apakah Allah menguji kalian, salatlah dua rakaat, dan segera setelah kalian mengucapkan “Allahu akbar,” apa yang terjadi?  Kalian berpikir, “Aku makan apa ya nanti malam?”  Segera setelah kalian mulai, Allah membiarkan Setan keluar dari penjaranya sehingga ia membuat kalian lupa berapa rakaat kalian telah salat, apakah tiga atau lima, atau sepuluh, atau bahkan satu rakaat?

Your ego complains if you are breathing a breath in a prayer, your ego comes and says, “Why are you tiring yourself? Don’t pray.” Many people are not praying. If you ask them, “Do you believe in Hellfire?” they answer, “No, where is it?” Shaytan comes and plays with us, as soon as we say, “Allahu Akbar (takbeer in the prayer), all kinds of gossips and bad thoughts come to you.

Can you stop them? No, so Allah is testing us and when you see this, if you want to know if Allah is testing you, just pray two raka`ats, and as soon as you say “Allahu Akbar,” what will happen? You think, “What I am going to have for dinner tonight?” No, as soon as you begin, Allah lets Shaytan out of his prison so that he makes you forget how many raka`ats you prayed: was it three raka`ats, five raka`ats, ten raka`ats, or even one raka`at?
