The Masjid and the Shade

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The man whose heart is devoted to the Masjid will rest in the shade of Allah’s Throne.” [Bukhari]

The best portion of the earth in the sight of Allah is that upon which a Masjid is raised. The distinctive feature of the devotee of Allah is that he loves the Masjid. On the Day of Judgement, when there will be no other shade anywhere, Allah will keep that person in the shade of His Throne whose heart was devoted to the Masjid.
