The Gift of Prayer

Some scholars say that the well-being of a servant depends on prayer

A Gift

So, whoever would like to see a slave whom Allah loves and he sincerely loves Allah, whom Allah is pleased with and he is sincerely pleased with Allah,

he who is sincerely pleased with Allah, and Allah is pleased with him and fulfills his desires, let him look at those who establish the prayer as ordained by Allah

You won’t find someone who is granted success in the prayer, establishing it as ordained by Allah except the doors of mercy have been opened for him in this world and in the Hereafter

attaining success in all his affairs; in both internal and external aspects of life, in his religion and in his worldly affairs

not only with himself, but also with people. Even one’s provision depends on his prayer

“And enjoin prayer upon your family [and people] and be steadfast therein. We ask you not for provision; We provide for you.” (Ta-Ha 20:132)

It will even protect him from immoralities

“and establish prayer. Indeed, prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing” (Al-`Ankabut 29:45)

Performing this obligatory prayer, Allah will guide your heart from evil to good, from misery to happiness, and from following one’s evil desires and lusts to following the righteous path

It’s all by the guidance of Allah (Exalted be He)

It has such an effect

A Blessing

That’s why the upright servants of Allah who are sincere towards Him, who stand firm, when the time of a certain prayer enters nothing is more important to them at this point but fulfilling the right of Allah

As `A’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) said: “it is as if he doesn’t know us and we don’t know him.”

“My comfort has been provided in prayer.”

these are authentic clear texts in the Sunnah

It (prayer) is the second important obligation after the Two Testimonies of Faith

It is the pillar on which one’s the religion is founded

It’s when we honor and give superiority to prayer

and the righteous predecessors gave the best example of that

When the prayer was about to begin, when its time entered, there nothing that a successful and guided servant can do but fulfilling the right of Allah.

They about an Imam in Homs who stayed had been leading the people in prayer for more than twenty or thirty years without forgetting anything in a single prayer.

They said: You have been leading us in prayer all this time without forgetting anything in a single prayer!”

He said: ‘By Allah, I have never entered the mosque while there is anything in my heart but Allah.”

It is such a great obligation

People are reminded over and over and are emotionally touched by what they listen to, but practicing it is what really matter.
