It is indeed an effort and a task to pray the 15th raat washeq. To stand straight and focus on ‘ibaadat for so long. The washeq is a manifestation of the effort required to stand firm in the walaayat and taa’at of Awliyaa’ullah and their Hudood. Distractions in this world are many; but what is most important is that we face the Masjid-e-Haraam, the Ka’ba with our bodies and the Imam with our soul – and stand firm in our commitment and belief of the Imam’s Dai. He is our path to the Imam. He is our path to salvation... The praying of the thum washeq without recognizing, believing and trusting the Hudood that its 14 rak’ats signify is indeed pointless.
