Prayer is the ascension of believer. Prayer is a means of relaxation and calms the hearts of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam. Prophet always khushoo’ in his prayer, his feet was swollen because of the length of time in prayer.
However, as narrated in Sahih by Imam Muslim rahimahullahu Ta’ala, there is a condition that makes the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam quicken his prayers. Because of this, he immediately put an end to his prayer.
Anas bin Malik Allaah ‘anhu narrated, the Prophet sallallaahu’ alaihi wa sallam said, “Truly, I am praying. At the time, I would like to extend the reading of prayers. Then, I heard the cries of a child, and then I shorten the prayer reads. Because I know the feeling of mother when hear her baby cries”
This is the charm of the character of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam. This is actually a solemn prayer. Rather not hear anything, but knowing what is going on around the place of prayer.
The noble prophet shortens prayer reading because he heard the child crying. He could only prolong the reading, but he shortens his reading because knowing mother feeling when her baby cried while she was praying.
This hadith also contains wisdom that the priests considering the khushoo’ of the congregation, not just self- khushoo’. It is not wise to extend the reading in the obligatory prayers, without notice to the congregation, just as it would be called the memorizers of the Qur’an melodious recitation.
If it extends, should be adapted to the habits of the mosque. For many pilgrims who have plenty to do outside of prayer.
This history also shows the compassion of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam told his people. He loved his people perfectly until he could empathize with what is perceived by them.
Compassion is the main character. Very wide-ranging, who does not love all that is in the earth, then he will not be loved by anyone who is in the heavens. And it is not deprived of affection, but of the wretched slaves.
Really, there is no better example than the example of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam.
However, the father and mother must also provide education when their children go to the mosque to pray.
