Salah | Prayer in Islam | Perfecting your prayer this Ramadan

Updated: May 6

Salah in Islam is a special prayer which was specified to the Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W) through revelation. Salah helps guide a Muslim for a healthy and well-organised life by dividing the day into intervals. As Muslims we know that we have to pray our 5 daily prayers at the correct time. Allah states in the holy Quran:

'Those who are steadfast in seeking the face of their Lord, and establish Salah and give from the provision we have given them, secretly and openly, and stave off evil with good; it is they who will have the ultimate Abode'. (Surat ar-Ra'd, 22)

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The first action for which a servant of Allah will be held accountable on the Day of Resurrection will be his prayers. If they are in order, he will have prospered and succeeded. If they are lacking, he will have failed and lost. If there is something defective in his obligatory prayers, then the Almighty Lord will say: See if my servant has any voluntary prayers that can complete what is insufficient in his obligatory prayers. The rest of his deeds will be judged the same way.”

A Fardh, an obligatory act, is a definite order of Allah. If either one obligatory act or several obligatory acts of a Salah are not done, that Salah is incomplete. This is why it is very important to practice our Salah, and if we have doubts about the correctness of our Salah, we should try to make every effort to make our Salah the best possible, this can be done by visiting the Scholars and those who are well practised about Salah. Our Salah also provides spiritual benefits, when we perform our Salah properly, the joy of being in Allah’s presence is witnessed. It also brings comfort in the time of fear, pleasure in the time of joy, sustaining the spiritual character of the soul, maintenance of faith, and a good relationship with the Divine Being. Prayer provides the following sociological benefits:

The sense of coming together, knowing one another, friendship, and reinforcement of the bonds of brotherhood. This is why we should all make a firm intention that we will try to perform all our Salah at its correct time.

Let’s make a strong intention to start our daily prayers from today. InshAllah
