It was not until someone said something like “Yes! I don’t need to pray!” That it hit me.
As if “Yes! I don’t need to talk to you (Allah)!”
Don’t we always want to make contact with the the ones we love? Whatsapp? Email? Call?
And if the ones we love, love to be hugged instead of being kissed or love to be called instead of just getting a whatsapp message, so what will you do? The actions your lover loves more? Or less?
So where does an action that He made it compulsory for us stands? Isn’t the obligated prayer beloved to Him?
Although praying and the period where women do not need to pray are both prescribed by Allah, but there is as if something is wrong with being happy for not needing to go away for some time to go talk to Him.
