From an individual perspective, each man is the center of his own universe.....
Once his conciousness temporarily cease through sleep [ minor death ], and 'permanently' [ at least from the secular, non spiritual perspective ] through death, his 'universe' literally ceased.
One trick out of the handful of spiritual 'tricks in the bag' to making and feeling ourselves very special is to change our paradigm, relook at our 'very own small universe' through an entirely different prism :
When morning has broken, the Lord of the Universe, ya Rabbul alamin, reorientates and realigns all HIS billions of stars and planets in HIS galaxies in the Milky Ways, to give each individual man yet another day to start afresh, to repent for the heedlessness and corruption of yesterday, to look forward with the freshness of an unblemished, clean sheet of white cloth.
GOD"S RE-CREATION OF A NEW DAY !
One need to just, with utmost sincerity and humilty, doa the following :
1 .‘All praise is for Allah who gave us life after having taken it from us and unto Him is the resurrection.’
2 .‘All praise is for Allah who restored to me my health and returned my soul and has allowed me to remember Him.’
3 .La ilaha illal-lahu wahdahu la shareeka lah, lahul-mulku walahul-hamd, wahuwa AAala kulli shay-in qadeer, subhanal-lah, walhamdu lillah, wala ilaha illal-lah wallahu akbar, wala hawla wala quwwata illa billahil-AAaliyyil AAatheem. Rabbigh-fir lee
‘None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone without associate, to Him belongs sovereignty and praise and He is over all things wholly capable. How perfect Allah is, and all praise is for Allah, and none has the right to be worshipped except Allah, Allah is the greatest and there is no power nor might except with Allah, The Most High, The Supreme.’
And then supplicates:
‘O my Lord forgive me.’
If he then performs ablution and prays the fajr prayer, his prayer will be accepted, insyaallah.
However, The Key to the Garden is :
How many of us do this with sincerity and humility every morning ?
How many of us do comprehend fully what we say and pray ?
How many of us put our 'hearts' into our prayer ?
