Order to Cut off all the Hair

The father of Hazrat Umar Bin Abdul Aziz, Abdul Aziz, was the governor of Egypt. He gave his son under the guardianship of Hazrat Saalih Bin Kisaan radiallaho ta'ala anhu to obtain superior education in Madinah. One time Hazrat Umar Bin Abdul Aziz was late for prayers and was asked by his teacher the reason for being late. He replied that he was combing and arranging his hair and that caused him to be late. The teacher said, "You gave more importance to your hair than the time for prayer?" The teacher wrote about this incident to his father, who immediately sent a person from Egypt to Madinah. As soon as this person arrived in Madinah the first thing he did was cut off all the hair of Hazrat Umar Bin Abdul Aziz radiallaho ta'ala anhu because that was the order of his father.

My Beloved Prophet sallalaho alaihe wasallam's beloved devotees! It's amazing how much passion the friend's of Allah Ta'ala had, that they could not withstand even delaying prayer a little bit. The thing that was the cause of the delay was removed immediately. We can see their enthusiasm for prayer and their enthusiasm in relation to their children's upbringing. Do we have this kind of enthusiasm? Our situation is that whether it's resting or swapping tales, or getting ready, the time for prayer passes and we don't care. We should take a lesson from this incident that we should attempt to follow in the footsteps of our pious predecessors. We should also worry about the prayers of our children and we should guide them and watch over them. May Allah Ta'ala protect us all from laziness in respect of prayer. Aameen
