The places, where Prayers are offered, shine for the dwellers of the sky, just as the stars shine for the dwellers of the earth
233 Deeds and Virtues of the Masjid
Describing the condition of the men who have been rightly guided Allaah SubjaanaHuu wa Ta-;aalaa says: In houses (Masjids) which Allaah has ordered to be raised (to be cleaned, and to be honoured), in them His Name is remembered (i.e. Da'wat, recitation of the Qur'aan, learning and teaching the Commandments of Allaah, worship). Therein glorify Him (Allaah) in the mornings and the evenings.
Men whom neither trade nor sale (business) diverts from the Remembrance of Allaah (with heart and tongue), nor from establishing Salaat, nor from giving Zakaat. They fear a Day when hearts will be shaken and eyes will be rolled (out of the horror at the torment of the Day of Resurrection).
