klausnick/莫罗佐夫·尼科莱/профан (klausnick) wrote,

Allah laid upon the faithful the great burden of forty prayers a day.

On the return journey I met Moses and he said, the burden is too heavy, go back and plead for less. Four times I went back, four times Moses said, still too many, go back again. But by the fourth time Allah had reduced the duty to five prayers and I refused to return. I felt ashamed to beg any more.
