Before You Pray

Anas Al-Gawz
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 15 | Size: 1 MB

Dear Readers. We are presenting you a book, which is, though, very small in size but is very big in its concept.

Salat is the first obligation upon a Muslim after his testification of Allah’s Oneness and Muhammad’s (peace be upon him) Messenger ship. Salat is the contentment of the heart of a Muslim and the eminence of a Believer. Salat is much more emphasized in Qur’an than any other act.

You may have seen many books on Salat but this small book, which has a specific mention in relation with the matters before the Salat, is very useful and effective. The original book is in Arabic and is written by our friend captain Pilot Anas bin Abdul-Hameed Al-Gawz. More than 30,000 copies of this book have reached in the hands of the people, who appreciated it very much. The English translation of this book has been made by Mr. Abdul Karim Shah, former translator of Pakistan Embassy in Riyadh , for which I am thankful to him.

Dar-us-Salam feels great pleasure and honour in publishing the book according to its high traditions and standards. I am specially thankful to Mr. Shakil Ahmed As-Salafi, Hafiz Abdul Matin Rashid, Mr. Azmat Ullah, and Mr. Saeed-ud-Din for the special tasks of composing, proof reading and checking it with the original Arabic book.

Now this beautiful and valuable present is in your hands, please read it and pray for us all.

Some Ahadith (Prophetic Traditions) About The Salat (Prayer)

Once Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) passing by his Companions asked:“ Do you know what the Almighty Allah says? He says, I swear by My Honour and Glory, there is no one who performs the Salat at its stated time, but I admit him to the Paradise . But for who performs it without observing its prescribed time, I may have mercy upon him if I like or punish him if I like” (Al-Tabarani).

Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said:“ Allah, the Blessed and Exalted is certainly pleased by Salat in congregation”.

Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said:“ The first thing that a person would be called to account for on the Day of Judgment is the Salat. If it is performed properly, all his deeds become in order, and if it is improper then all his deeds are in vain”.

Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said:“ All the sins between five daily Salat (prayers); one Friday prayer to the next Friday prayer; and also between (the fasting of) one Ramadan to the next Ramadan are wiped off if one avoids the major sins” (Muslim).  Continue reading

Due to the increase in the number of magicians and fortunetellers lately, those who claim the ability to cure  people by the use of magic and fortunetelling, and due to their spread in some of the Muslim countries and the way  they take advantage of some simple-minded, ignorant people, it became necessary for me to clarify the great danger of these people on Muslims and Islaam, for it entails becoming attached to other than Allaah and disobeying His commands and the command of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
